Confirmed today in the latest Japan-only Nintendo Direct that Square Enix’s new 3DS RPG Final Fantasy Explorers will be hitting Japanese stores in the winter.

In Final Fantasy Explorers, up to four players can select a job class, basically a unique combat style, and set out together exploring the in-game world and completing quests. Players will run up against Summons, powerful creatures that have made appearances in various Final Fantasy games spanning the franchise.

The game will allow for connectivity through local wireless for ad-hoc multiplayer, or online via Wi-Fi connection for faraway friends. Final Fantasy Explorers can also be played in single-player mode.

Currently, developer Square Enix has announced four possible job classes for players to choose from: Black Mage, White Mage, Monk and Knight. The former two use magic – one dark magic, one healing magic – while the latter two use physical attacks. Monks fight with bare hands, while Knights use swords and shields.

Final Fantasy Explorers was first revealed last month, with aims to help introduce newcomers to the role-playing genre, producer Atsushi Hashimoto previously stated. No words on a western release as of yet, stay tuned for more news on Final Fantasy Explorers.
