Due for a November 21 release, the game will come with a Day One Edition that provides a number of extras. The Day One Edition gives users the digital copy of the game along with a digital soundtrack sampler and a Final Fantasy wallpaper.

As for the game itself, people have described World of Final Fantasy as basically Pokemon if, instead of cute little monsters, one is to employ cute chibi versions of the favourite Final Fantasy characters.

Also, each of these characters have deep, Final Fantasy X-like sphere grid leveling systems. And without going into spoiler territory – don’t let the chibi characters fool you into thinking that this is a kiddie game. There’s a lot of lighthearted humor, but towards the end things get pretty dark.
