Square Enix announced that the Final Fantasy Explorers demo will launch in Japan on November 14.

The demo will cover the prologue, and has all the major features from the final game (including 4 player online multiplayer).
It will also have two battles against summons (Iffrit and Shiva), along with some jobs and equipment.

As we announced previously, you can transfer some information to the final game, including Gil (up to 5 000), Crystal Points (up to 2 000 points), items, abilities, and one weapon/piece of equipment from every category.

Last week we detailed some information on the incredibly in depth Final Fantasy Explorers lite version, the demo for the eShop that will be released some time before the full game. More information surfaced today that much like the Bravely Default demo, things from the demo such as battle items, abilities, gil and crystal points will be inherited by characters in the final release. At the moment this only applies to the Japanese version but we suspect this will find it’s way west as we get closer to that release.
