The latest issue of Famitsu reveals that Sarah Cornelia is joining in Mevius Final Fantasy cast this Spring. It’s not exactly same lady as in Final Fantasy I, but they both are princesses. In Mevius Final Fantasy, Sarah is the princess of royal family of Paramitiaand she has been imprisoned into a giant crystal. Our hero known as “Wol” (reference to the Warrior of Light) discovers her, after waking up in a mysterious world without any memories. Wol has no idea where he is coming from and his only choice is to set forth and walk onward. There is a mysterious voice calling him out and guiding him along his path. Could this be Sarah’s voice?
The battle system follows the traditional smartphones controls: they are simple and fighting happens by tapping the screen. You can also use magic abilities, including fire and blizzard. Some enemy types have elemental weaknesses: by casting a blizzard spell on fire elemental monsters will become weakened, making it easier to finish them off. Similar to Final Fantasy XIII saga, Mevius Final Fantasy also uses stagger system, where even more damage can be done. By defeating these mighty beasts, the player will also gather elements as loot. They will be used for developing the character even further.
Similar to other Final Fantasy games, there will be a summon system where the player can utilize eidolons such as Shiva, Onion Knight and Fat Chocobo in battles. It will be interesting to see how combining summons, magic and jobs affects to the gameplay. Square Enix already revealed that freelancer, thief and black mage jobs are appearing in the game. You can also rename the hero the way you like.
