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.
