Operation Backlog Completion 2024

world-of-final-fantasy-ennaWorld of Final Fantasy is an upcoming turn-based RPG about a brother and sister exploring a mysterious world called Grymoire and encountering characters from across the Final Fantasy series.

It’s been on my radar ever since they showed the villains.

Since then, I’ve followed news about it and gotten pretty excited for this unusual Final Fantasy game. It sounds like it could be a lot of fun… and on Monday, we can try it out to see.

Starting October 17, a “dungeon demo” will be available to download for the PS4 or Vita. It should be a nice slice of World of Final Fantasy gameplay, with Mirages to capture and Final Fantasy characters to meet.

(Update: the PS Vita demo has been delayed until October 21 in the US.)

If you complete the demo, you’ll be able to fight the Magitek Armor P Mirage in the full game’s coliseum.

Square Enix also released the full opening movie for World of Final Fantasy, which includes the game’s regular graphics as well as an anime art style “that appears during some of the game’s cut scenes.”

I love this intro. It’s adorable, but also exciting. I can’t wait to see what the game is like, and I’ll play the demo for sure!

And of course, I want to know more about the villains. Speaking of which, I don’t trust Enna Kros (the silver-haired woman) one bit, thanks to Kingdom Hearts.

The silver hair is one thing, but she and Xehanort clearly buy their gloves from the same store.

Ansem, Seeker of Darkness, also wears the same gloves (and has beautiful silver hair to rival Enna's)

And let’s see…


Nope! I don’t trust you, Lady Xehanort! I don’t trust you at all!


While it may be a while before my suspicions about Enna Kros are proved or disproved, my more reasonable belief that World of Final Fantasy will be a fun game should gain some support on Monday, once the demo is available.

World of Final Fantasy is due out on October 25 in North America, October 27 in Japan, and October 28 in Europe. …Wait, why are we getting it before Japan?

Are you planning to play it or try its demo? What do you think of Enna’s odd resemblance to Xehanort (and Ansem)? Let me know in the comments.

  1. Well, what gloves do YOU wear?

    • In my normal day-to-day life, none! In wintertime, I often wear black gloves, sometimes not…

      But I’ve never worn white gloves with some sort of black divider that then flares out into a buttoned cuff. I’m not even sure where you’d buy them outside of Xehanort/Ansem cosplays.
