The teaser trailer for the anime prologue to Final Fantasy XV Episode Ardyn is out now. Episode Ardyn is a DLC set 30 years before the events of Final Fantasy XV, and I guess to truly understand it you will need to watch an anime.
I’m still a bit furious that Hajime Tabata left Square. I assume Square forced him out, because he always seemed genuinely enthusiastic when talking about FFXV. If anyone deserves blame for FFXV* then it’s Nomura. He started the project then just bailed, leaving it to Square to find a new director. Tabata did what he could with the pieces that were left. I was hoping he would direct the next mainline FF game.
*I liked FFXV. It wasn’t perfect (more summons please), but it was better than nothing.
