World of Final Fantasy, the upcoming RPG from Square Enix, is coming to PlayStation 4 and Vita this October. The worldwide releases are almost simultaneous: October 25th in North America, October 27th in Japan and October 28th in Europe.

If you're unaware of what World of Final Fantasy is, or why Cloud Strife looks so damn cute in the image above, it's essentially a chibi-fied take on the Final Fantasy games. It's being pitched at both long-term fans of the series and youngsters, blending kid-friendly visuals and storytelling with classic Final Fantasy combat.

World of Final Fantasy is set in Grimoire, a mysterious world that has sucked in both the new protagonists and various characters and creatures from the series. Visually, everything is cute and approachable, and the game feels much closer to the Final Fantasy titles of old than new. If you're a Final Fantasy fan, it sounds like there's a lot to pique your interest here. But then again, with a release date less than a month after Final Fantasy XV, you might already have your hands full.
