    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    Opens with a description of the engine. Apparently the demo is based on the concept that while they aren't played by actors in the traditional sense, video game characters still have costume changes, so they made a scene based on that premise. The writer then comments on the high detail in...

    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    I just watched that video too. Amazing insight. I always wondered if the English terminology was a reaction against earlier FF titles' more abstract terminology. Now I know. And it's somewhat gratifying to know they had just as much trouble connecting the different media as we do sometimes...

    Some nice info from SteamSpy. According to its estimates, XV Windows Edition has now reached sales of over one million units. Just behind VII in terms of single-player FF popularity. https://www.pcgamesn.com/final-fantasy-xv/1-million-copies-steam

    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    I stand corrected. I was hasty in my use of the word "damsel". I just felt a little... I don't know, betrayed. After so much positive stuff.from the devs, I thought they would at least show more from her POV as, maybe optional cutscenes. Oh well, it was their artistic choice. And they didn't...

    Seriously don't understand why they find Lunafreya so important that they feature her in so many spin-off things... I mean, she's hardly there in the main narrative. Not that she isn't a strong heroine (which she is, in a non-standard way), but she's just not there. Just look at the above promo...

    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    That bit about Etro and Ardyn is based on posts from 4Chan that haven't been substantiated. We don't know anything about what the original story of Versus was to have been with any certainty. Not without the devs actually saying something about the draft. From what we know from the developers...

    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    SQEX says Ep Ardyn is part of the XV narrative canon, and has a confirmed canon ending leading into the events of XV which mostly makes sense. I'm not sure people should let Reddit decide what parts are canon and which aren't. I mean...Including King's Knight and Justice Monsters V in any...

    Out of all the elements we can say is part of the canon given additional info outside DotF, I think we can make some guesses. *Since it is technically the divergence point, I think Ardyn's section up to the meeting with Bahamut can be taken as compatible with canon (with the canon choice, as...

    Yeah, I'd agree with that. Personally, I'd like to see what Rooster Teeth Animation would make of a Final Fantasy world.

    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    I'd say FFXV's proven the series' continued commercial possibilities. And its reputation for creating discussion. I look forward to what XVI will bring. Also, in the best WoFF Cactuar tradition..... 1000 PAGES!

    Seeing all the art above... I wish we'd know about those priest-type figures. I mean, I never even saw them. I just assumed they were part of the architecture. So much lore...not explained or simply thrown in as flavour. Or so it seems.

    Sorry, I was just being silly. I didn't think you were being serious.

    And in the vein of questions and silly answers; Which is the best playable heroine in the FFXV Universe? Must be controllable by the player... (Edit: This is to be taken purely in jest. Sorry if it comes off/came off as acerbic.)
