Eidolon Hunter
Jan 26
 
If one wanted to delve into the world of Final Fantasy for the first time, the barrier to entry is generally rather high. You have a host of 50-hour JRPGs, several daunting MMOs, and a number of complicated and deep tactical spinoffs. Final Fantasy Explorers tries to ease people into the world of Black and White mages with a different, gentler approach, albeit with its own set of flaws.

And hopefully west soon after

Japan just had a third-party Nintendo Direct, and it decidedly focused on Final Fantasy Explorers at the start.
