So I play a game called Final Fantasy Möbius on the JP servers. It’s sort of the reason why I went back to WK despite several years of Japanese study. I’m an upper intermediate student, but going through WK reminded me very much of a mobile game.
So when you first start, it’s like you’re a level one noobie. You don’t have any weapons or utility, and your “stamina” system is pretty low. As such you’re forced to wait and do tutorials.
However, every couple of hours you can come back and grind some more. As you increase your levels (knowledge), the game opens up and suddenly you have a lot more to do.
Basically, I just found it entertaining how much similarity this system has to a mobile game. Heck if someone made WK into a mobile game I’d probably play it. Gotta slash up those Kanji.
