After announcing Final Fantasy XV at the Sony press conference, Square Enix has now offered up some more details about the game. Final Fantasy XV is the rebranded version of Final Fantasy Versus XIII, which is being developed for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. In a press release, Square Enix sheds some light on the details of the game and the new direction it will be taking.
The biggest change is that the game will now take advantage of the advancements coming with the new generation of consoles. While the initial plan for the story remains unchanged, Square Enix plans to use the capabilities of the PS4 and Xbox One to expand on Final Fantasy XV’s gameplay and graphics. Unlike most Final Fantasy games, which have predominantly turn-based battle systems, Final Fantasy XV will feature action RPG gameplay with some third-person-shooter elements.
In the press release, Square Enix also provided some more details about the game’s story. The Kingdom of Lucis suffers a crippling attack from the armed forces of Niflheim, forcing Crown Prince Noctis (the game’s protagonist), along with his comrades, out into the fight. Square Enix promises that the story to follow from these events will be will be engaging, featuring a rich world and the top notch storytelling we have come to expect from previous Final Fantasy titles.
Details about a possible release date have yet to be revealed.
