Square Enix has announced a new Final Fantasy game for the Nintendo DS that will be coming to Australia.
Titled The 4 Heroes of Light, the game is about a young boy named Brandt who is sent to rescue a princess from the Witch of the North. It was revealed for Japan almost a year ago.
The game has received a battle menu overhaul and now has a simple touchscreen system, meaning that players can focus more on the action rather than on complex menus. The game will also allow players to easily change classes and abilities with the new Crown System, leading to a wide array of strategic options.
Furthermore, the game is planned to feature a multiplayer mode which lets up to four players team up to traverse dungeons and to collect Battle Points which, after being traded for rare items, can be used in the single-player storyline.
Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light is slated for release in Australia and New Zealand in Spring, 2010.
