Final Fantasy may have just passed the cuteness point of no return.
PlayStation vice president of developer and partner relations Adam Boyes debuted World of Final Fantasy in a trailer full of adorably gigantic heads during Sony’s E3 press conference. The debut look featured superdeformed versions of Final Fantasy characters battling equally disproportionate versions of monsters from the series.
Boyes confirmed that the game will be launching exclusively on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita sometime in 2016. This marked the only time the PlayStation handheld got mentioned during Sony’s press conference.

The trailer’s voice-over narration seemed to give a lot of importance to changing the size of characters (from super-deformed to a more traditionally anime-stylized look) in order to interact and battle with creatures. The trailer’s brief showing of gameplay also hinted at stacking characters on top of monsters (and vice versa) for some kind of benefit.
