Final Fantasy Uncovered took place yesterday and brought with it a behemoth amount of information! First and most important, Final Fantasy XV will release on September 30th and is available right now on the PSN for pre order.
Now that that’s out of the way next there is an entirely new demo that is available right now and is separate from the one that was released alongside Type-0 HD. The demo features the summon carbuncle, the final battle system and supposedly what the final graphics for the title will look like. The summon will be transferable to the final game. A new trailer has been released also and with it the games official theme song.
Florence + the machine are taking over with their cover of the classic song “stand by me”. This announcement takes me back to Final Fantasy XIII’s theme song with Leona Lewis’ “My hands” at first I thought that was a weird choice but it surprisingly worked really well with the title so we will see how this one pans out.
The next bit of news is something unexpected. A full length CGI film has been announced with an amazing cast! Final Fantasy XV will have a prequel movie that will spin into the events of the game. The CGI film titled ‘Kingsglaive’ features actors such as Sean Bean (Game of thrones) Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) and Lena Heady (Game of thrones). The movie is set to release in 2016.
Also on the media side of things, Final Fantasy XV will have an 5 episode anime series following the main party members. The first episode is online now.
The last bit of news comes in the form of a mini game. Justice Monsters Five has been announced as a mini game for Android, IOS and Windows 10 devices. It is based on an arcade game that can be found in Final Fantasy XV and will be released sometime this year before XV.
That’s all the news we have for you at this time. Don’t forget to download the new demo and if you’ve been following the development of Versus XIII from the beginning and just can’t wait any longer, you can pre order the title for when it launches on September 30th.
