Final Fantasy Explorers is a game all about venturing out into the world and slaying monsters—including the summonable creatures that have appeared in numerous games from across the franchise. To make these battles especially epic, the summons have pre-fight cutscenes—each of which looks just as cool in gif form.
Final Fantasy Explorers was released in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS on December 18, 2014. There is currently no word on an international release.
