World of Final Fantasy Maxima, an enhanced version of the original World of Final Fantasy, is now available worldwide, While this cute chibi spin-off was developed for PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4, this edition marks the first time that the title will appear on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch platforms.
Some of the biggest changes in Maxima involves a third playable character. In addition to Lann and Reynn, you will now also be able to play as a certain summoner. However, since you can still only bring two members into battle, you’ll have to switch out either Lann or Reynn for this character. A new avatar change system will also let you fight as legendary heroes from the Final Fantasy series as opposed to just as the game’s protagonists.
Additional content include a new EX dungeon, new bosses such as a snake-like boss called Marilith, as well as a new superboss Enna Kros. New side quests that take place after the game’s ending will also be added. On top of having new Final Fantasy characters such as Zack, Serah, Cecil, and Noctis, there’s even a new fishing minigame for you to enjoy.
World of Final Fantasy Maxima also adds a New Game+ mode, which allows you to experience the story once again with rare items. For the hardcore folk, a Nightmare difficulty mode will also unlock upon game completion, featuring overall harder gameplay.
The game will also feature a secret ending which requires secret special requirements to unlock. According to director Hiroki Chiba, this will tie into a possible sequel for the game.
Like the PS4 version, the Xbox One and Switch versions support cloud saves. However, the PC version does not support Steam cloud.
World of Final Fantasy Maxima is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
