Sqaure Enix has released new World of Final Fantasy gameplay info and revealed new legend characters (characters from previous games).

Snow and Tifa will have Saver summon attacks that are similar to their ultimate moves in their original games.

Snow's Ruler Fist is a team-based attack that has Snow and his mirage/eidolon Shiva team up to inflict ice type damage on opponents. This attack overrides the enemies defense stat while boosting the physical defense of allies. Tifa's Final Seven is a modified version of Final Heaven that bypasses opponent's defense stats, dealing physical damage to enemies while boosting the physical attack of allies.

Heart Quests are a gameplay feature involving side stories relating to legend characters. During these quests, you will get to see the sub-stories of legend characters unfold while helping them accomplish their goals. These stories are created to be accessible to both long-time fans and newcomers to the Final Fantasy series. Players will need a special item called 'Alma Gems' to begin these side stories. Once you have the gems, you must head to The Girl's Room where the Heart Quest manager, a mysterious girl known as "The Girl Who Forgot Her Name' allows you to accept quests.
