Finally! A game that understands me on a personal level. Final Fantasy Explorers will feature Freelancers. Kind of like me, except these freelancers can create equipment for themselves using raw materials. When you start out, that's what your character will actually be classified as.
The more monsters you defeat, the better gear you can acquire. It's just like being a writer. The more outlets you work at, the better pay you're going to earn. Eventually. Man, this game really feels like it's hitting close to home. Final Fantasy Explorers is slated for a winter release. Good, I need more time to get caught up with my never-ending backlog.
