While Square Enix is being rather tight-lipped about Final Fantasy 15, they have released a new trailer for us to drool over.
During the trailer, you’ll notice a lot of parts that we have already seen, but around the 2:55 mark, you get a glimpse of some new combat and traversal gameplay. Noctis, our protagonist, looks to be a pretty nimble as he whizzes around all over the place during combat, it’s really a sight to see.
Nobody really knows much about Final Fantasy 15, but we do know a few minor things. The game was previously known as Final Fantasy Versus 13 and was to be a Playstation 3 exclusive. But now, the game has obtained the new title of Final Fantasy 15, is going to be out for both Playstation 4 and Xbox One, is being directed by Tetsuya Nomura, and is currently in development at Square Enix’s 1st Production Department.
Final Fantasy 15 is supposed to have a much darker tone than the previous entries in the series and will be have a much faster pace as well. There will also be some third-person shooting elements thrown in there. The protagonist, Noctis Lucis Caelum, is a prince that belongs to a royal family that is supposed to protect the last remaining crystal in the entire world. Sounds pretty far-fetched, but that’s to be expected of a Final Fantasy game.
Square has yet to announce a release date, but I’d expect it to be at least next fall.
