Kingsglaive Final Fantasy XV, the full-CG Final Fantasy XV spin-off flick, will be out in Japanese movie theaters on July 9. No word yet on its international release date.
Nearly three years ago, while showcasing what we now know was a game that had barely even started development, the people behind Final Fantasy XV demonstrated a flashy fight between the hero Noctis and a Final Fantasy stalwart, the hulking Iron Giant.
Last week, Square Enix showed it was throwing all it had behind Final Fantasy XV. This is a big game and has the anime and
CGI spin-off to prove it. While Square Enix might seem like it’s back on sure Final Fantasy footing, it was only a few years ago things seemed anything but.
The newest playable teaser for Final Fantasy XV is short, but it still has a few cool things secreted away inside the dreamscape of young Noctis. The best thing players have found so far is a weapon that makes the final boss fight a breeze.
Final Fantasy XV might be a fantasy based on reality, but making that fantasy real sure is expensive.
Last night, Square Enix announced Kingsglaive, a splashy CGI movie connected to Final Fantasy XV which will feature big-deal Hollywood actors in major roles. But the talent best known for playing characters in Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad won’t be playing those parts in the actual game.
Square Enix says we shouldn’t expect a PC version of Final Fantasy XV anytime soon, according to an interview at Engadget. Once the console version is done, the developers will “take a good, hard look at PC and what we need to do, and consider all [their] options.”
Last night, Square Enix held its Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV event in Los Angeles. The big news was the game’s release date. Which leaked early. Heh. But that wasn’t all. Here’s a round-up of Kotaku’s coverage.
