Although we have already covered some of the initial information regarding Final Fantasy XV in a recent article, more exciting information has come to light. Courtesy of duckroll on NeoGAF, we have gotten some more basic character information, as well as some pretty pictures.

Final Fantasy XV | oprainfall

Noctis Lucis Caelum (voiced by Tatsuhisa Suzuki) – The main character and Prince of the Lucis Kingdom, called Noct by his close friends. He possesses eyes that can sense the death of others.

Gladiolus Amicitia (voiced by Kenta Miyake) – Close friend of Noctis, closer than his blood brother. Eldest son of a household tasked with protecting the royal family.

Ignis Scientia (voiced by Mamoru Miyano) – Childhood friend and confidant of Noctis, with training befitting a staff officer. He understands Noctis well.

Prompto Argentum (voiced by Tetsuya Kakihara) – School friend of Noctis and all around bad influence. Gets carried away easily, but always driven to help friends in need.

Cor Leonis (voiced by Hiroki Touchi) – Head of the Royal Family Guards, and one of the three strongest fighters in Lucis. Harsh with Noctis and others, but a true man of honor who takes his vows to king and country seriously.

  • Terry Torres

    What I like about these guys is that they all seem like hard dudes. But… god DAMN, these dumbass names!

  • Jonah Rosen

    What? not a single female character?

    • There’s 2 females, one being a rival to Noctis but a playable character whom teams up with him. (Possibly the female lead) And another one whom I don’t know too well about…

    • Jonah Rosen

      Ah, that’s good. For a second, I was worried this game might end up being sausage-fest territory, which would probably be a first for a FF, one that I wouldn’t be too fond on.

    • tamara saadeh

      why would you want a female character with them? it wouldn’t make any sense!! i read in an article that they have a certain bond between them ” you know like bros before hoes or something like that :P” and a female between just doesn’t add up! Stella might join them in the progression of the game (who knows!) but the whole point of them being all males is that relationship they have with each other ( that didn’t sound right did it? -_-) anyway, maybe it’s only me but i’m a girl and i prefer playing with males instead of females!!

    • Jonah Rosen

      Please tell me you are joking… >_>
      If you’re not, please save me the trouble and beat yourself over the head already…-_-
      Every JRPG has to have at least 1 female character and at least 1 male character. It’s an unwritten rule, bra. you just can’t go changing that. It could cause a ripple in the Space-time continuum. It would be like if Superboy Prime punched reality again.

    • tamara saadeh

      Well…. it is “a fantasy based on reality” so…

    • Jonah Rosen

      I’m sorry to be the one to tell you this, but not everyone shares your “fantasy”. My fantasy is to have a harem of beautiful women, but I don’t see that happening anytime this century or the next.

      Besides, like I said, there’s going to be at least one or two female characters in the party because it’s an unwritten JRPG rule to include at least one member of each gender into the cast of playable characters in such a traditional series such as this. (I say traditional because there’s a newer JRPG series called Hyperdimensia Neptunia that consists of an all female party.)

    • tamara saadeh

      It has already been confirmed that you can play with characters outside Noctis’ party, and i bet one of these characters is Stella, so your “an unwritten JRPG rule” will be achieved 🙂

      “I’m sorry to be the one to tell you this, but not everyone shares your “fantasy”

      what fantasy might that be?-_-, i just wrote you the quote from the game, and you turned its’ meaning upside down!
      “My fantasy is to have a harem of beautiful women, but I don’t see that happening anytime this century or the next.”

      What?!!! what does that have to do with anything i said? it seems like you understood my point in the wrong way, i’m sorry i mislead you and i was inaccurate, but it seems that i have to explain my point again but i don’t think you and me have time for this right? we have better things to do and each of us has a different stand point and i respect that i really do, so all-in-all what i want to say is: to each his own^.^

    • Jonah Rosen

      I’m sorry, it was me that misread everything you said, So allow me to apologize. -__-;;

      I didn’t recognize your second reply to me as a quote from the trailer. So I read it along with some of your first reply as something along the lines of “My fantasy is to drool over an sexy all-male cast” or something to that effect. Again, I like to apologize for misreading your comments like that and to a negative effect, so please forgive me as I am truly sorry.

    West Side Fantasy

  • mikey

    Very boring and dull compared to the cast of FF6 or FF7

    • Xanedis

      Where I live, it is customary to play the game before voicing opinions.

  • Come on! Where are the girls!?

  • Vallen

    Is this all SE gave us during their mini conference? I hoped for release dates or more gameplay (maybe even a demo)
