Final Fantasy Explorers, a spinoff of the long-running series for Nintendo 3DS, will launch in North American Jan. 26, 2016, Square Enix announced today.

In Final Fantasy Explorers, players dive into dungeons in parties of four either solo or with friends. The game includes a job system with more than 20 different options, such as Knight, Black Mage and Monk. In addition to featuring familiar heroes from the Final Fantasy series through transformation, Final Fantasy Explorers also includes enemies, summons and more from the franchise.

"The world is on the brink of war over its reserves of crystals, the planet's chief source of power," the game's description reads. "Players must band together to form an elite squad of Explorers on an island rich in crystals, braving hordes of monsters in hopes of conquering a newly discovered Grand Crystal — every Explorer's dream."
