Back to basicsThere's more Final Fantasy action planned from the guys at Square Enix later this year in the form of Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light, a traditional RPG exclusively built for Nintendo DS.
Set for Autumn 2010, The 4 Heroes of Light will apparently go back to the basis and origins of the series with picture book visuals and an easy to control battle system complementing a classic story of four young heroes embarking on an adventure; a tale of dragons, kings, princesses and witches.
The simplified turn-based battle system will allow us to set up our own battle commands, while the unique new job change “Crown System” allows players to freely switch the character’s class simply by changing the hat each character wears. There are over 20 jobs to choose from including the traditional Black Mage, White Mage, Ranger and many more. Players can join their friends’ adventure with up to four players able to share the fun and conquer dungeons together.
Here's the story. In the small kingdom of Horne, Brandt awakes on the morning of his fourteenth birthday.
Today is the day he becomes an adult, and the custom of the realm says that he must go to the castle to present himself to the king.
Yet when he arrives at the castle he finds the kind distraught and the youngest princess missing, abducted by the Witch of the North. With no one else to turn to, the king makes a shocking request: will Brandt save the princess?
And thus Brandt’s adventure begins…
Eventually he is joined by three other brave young souls. Together they will experience a journey full of joyous meetings and sad partings.
Though at first they don’t always see eye-to-eye, these four Heroes of Light will build bonds of trust and affection so strong that, in the end, they may even save the world.
This is the tale of their legendary fantasy.
