Square Enix recently released a new infographic and trailer that highlights the various legacy characters in the soon-to-be-released action-RPG Final Fantasy Explorers. By harnessing the power of Trance Mode, players will be able to utilize the abilities of various classic Final Fantasy characters. In order to unlock specific characters, players have to perform rare quests for town Moogles who will reward them with that character's special magicite. These magicites can then be equipped at the town's central crystal.

The characters and their abilities are as follows:
