Update 2: The full livestream has been posted, and can be viewed below as normal. Careful, it’s over one hour of info and gameplay.
Update: Looks like the video went private. This article will be updated once more when the full livestream has been uploaded.
Square Enix is currently livestreaming new information and gameplay of the upcoming Final Fantasy Explorers on their official channel.
From the looks of it, battles take place on the same traveling field in realtime. Your party can be four players max and you can combine original characters with classic Final Fantasy characters — for instance, the livestream is using Cecil (FFIV) as the party leader and is directly controlling him. The other members are controlled by the computer and aid him with their own unique attacks.
Check out the stream below.
