I’m only going to make quick summaries of all the game-relevant information because the first half hour consisted of chatting with the voice actress, M・A・O, who plays Meia a.k.a the Azure Witch.
Check out the exciting details under the cut! 😀 (There’s info about a new playable character and a new system!)
A major announcement was made at the Tokyo Game Show yesterday by the game’s project leader and producer!
Meia will be the player character for Chapter 6. The chapter is entitled “Recollection of the Witch” (追憶の魔女) and will be released in October.
Gameplay featuring Meia was shown on the live stream. Her regular attacks consist of tossing magic at enemies with her free hand and ending the turn with a slash from her weapon.
You can watch her in action from about 1 hour 10 minutes in: https://youtu.be/Rfb3hYdqwIw?t=1h10m49s (I can’t seem to embed videos that start at a certain time. :/)
If you move the time line back about 10 or so minutes, you can catch the Witch’s voice actress, M・A・O, and the project leader, Naoki Hamaguchi, live reading the dialogue. People kept laughing whenever the Hamaguchi finished Wol’s line. ^^
At around 1:13, the new Decoration system was revealed!
I put a box around the 20% Skillseed discount because I thought it was interesting to point out. I hope they do something like that for regular skill panels too. 😀 While it’s true that stocking up on seeds in the Japanese version isn’t very difficult, I think it’ll be a nice limited time gift for players. ^^
I also hope that decorations will be available for Wol too. XD Check out some of the samples for Meia:
Afterwards, another battle was shown and the job change option was used~!
Sadly, Hamaguchi got her killed. ^^;; But she was revived and the fight continued on Auto-battle. 😛 You can watch the battle here: https://youtu.be/Rfb3hYdqwIw?t=1h15m46s
The last topic of the stream was revealing the cover of the Mobius Final Fantasy First Annivesary Illustrations Collection and also some character design illustrations for Sarah, Garland, and Echo.
The book can be ordered from various outlets such as Amazon Japan and retails for 2800 yen (tax included. Otherwise, it’s 2593 yen). If you order from the Square Enix Japan e-Store, you’ll also receive a post card featuring the cover artwork as well.
Oh, toward the beginning of the stream, the most popular jobs and spirits for 2016 (up to the Tokyo Game Show) were revealed:
Too many Echos.
