Final Fantasy XV Gets Details & Two New Videos

By Joseph C, 1 year ago
Fans of the Final Fantasy series are everywhere, not least of all here, so I’m sure the FF-faithful among you will be glad to hear that more details have emerged on Square Enix’s upcoming Final Fantasy XV

In the first video, we get to see our favorite feathered friends make their return with tail plumes that never looked so good. You can rent them for your riding pleasure using Gil, the well-known Final Fantasy currency. We also get a glimpse at some of the diversional activity in the game, namely fishing. Why save the world when you can cast a line, sit back, and relax? Check it out below.

The next video is another Active Time Report that serves as a very brief snapshot of everything that went on for Square Enix at Tokyo Game Show, brought to us by a representative from Square Enix NA. Of special interest is that at TGS they showed a new version of the Dawn trailer released early last month, with added exposition into the lore behind King Regis and Luna.

King Regis, reigning monarch of the Kingdom of Lucis, keeps a protective barrier around the capitol city using magical energy from a crystal, but now his body is failing.  The imperial invasion by the Niflheim is just outside the barrier waiting to pounce on the defenseless city, should the wall fail.  The widowed king’s only son, Noctis, will soon have to take the reigns of the kingdom.

Luna, on the other hand, has attained Oracle status, meaning she can speak with the gods.  Her city, Tenebrae, has earned autonomy from the kingdom thanks to Luna’s presence.  She is still of the kingdom's people, though, and must stay by their side in the face of the imperials, not to mention the fact that she was Noctis’ childhood friend.

Final Fantasy XV is still without a specific launch date as of yet, but should be on track for a 2016 release.

I've been gaming practically my whole life, starting around when I was 5 or 6 years old with an Atari 2600 and progressing through nearly every console ever released apart from the Wii U. I'm a completionist by nature, but am trying to move away from chasing every-higher gamerscore and just focusing on enjoying the great games that are all around me. We'll see how successful I am. I've been on TA since 2009 but have become much more active on the site in the past couple of years, and look forward to seeing it grow now that the XB1 app is getting it some much-deserved exposure!
