Bwah? Um... But don’t worry, this is just a demo, and the game is still slated to be out on schedule!

During today’s Active Time Report, Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata announced a new demo called Final Fantasy XV Judgment Disc. It goes from the opening up to the middle of Episode One.


This is Japan only, and the reason for the announcement, he says, is that demo are very important for the region. The demo is between an hour and an hour and a half, and it features the final retail version of FFXV.

This is a digital download and the meaning of “judgment disc” is that players can decide after playing the demo whether or not they are going to buy the actual game. Be aware that this demo is locked on easy mode, and there are other in-demo ability and level restrictions.

Judgment Disc will be available for download in Japan starting tomorrow. Players who don’t have access to Xbox Live or PSN can check out the demo at in-store demos across Japan.
