FINAL FANTASY EXPLORERS Collector's Edition Announced
SQUARE ENIX has revealed the Collector's Edition for FINAL FANTASY EXPLORERS that will be limited and available exclusively through the Square Enix Online Store.
FINAL FANTASY EXPLORERS is a new action-role playing adventure game where the world is on the brink of war over its reserves of crystals, the planet's chief source of power.
