    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    FFXV's Google Stadia version will be a launch title for the platform. Not interested myself, but it's nice to see a modern high spec JRPG in a launch line-up again. https://www.siliconera.com/google-stadia-launch-games-increased/

    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    Aww. They missed the chance to have an incredible diagetic UI design. Just imagine it; a fantasy based on reality, with its own Alexa to say "Caution, enemy incoming!". "Caution, dialogue incoming". "Caution, crossover incoming".

    Final Fantasy XVI Discussions (TBA)

    The thing that strikes me about this is that SQEX might be announcing this soon. I mean, if they can announce Nier Automata a year after beginning development, announcing something when they're actually pushing into main development would be an improvement.

    It's official; XV DotF was delayed into 2020. No explanations been given. It will release as an (English only apparently) hardcover with 50 pieces of dedicated artwork and concept art! Next month, I'm pre-ordering...

    It appears SQEX has a sense of humour. Dissidia NT has a third costume for Noctis...based on how he appeared in the first two trailers for Versus XIII. He even has a Versus-inspired victory pose.

    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    Just had the cookiest idea about how XV devs could've treated the Crystal and Starscourge in a more consistent and interesting way that might've set XV's world apart that little bit more and made sense with the imagery they used. Assuming Solheim's view of the afterlife as a great ocean is...

    Ookay, now DotF's stopped being available on Amazon UK.... And I waited too long before going to get it. DAMN!

    I really liked his designs for Type-0 and XV. Looking forward to seeing more of his work on VII Remake. He should really get his own game, where he gets to create the main characters. I think his strength lies in creating something ordinary and not too taxing, but still incredible and arresting...

    Final Fantasy XV - General News Thread

    I agree the characterisation and themes were a little overly safe (though as "fantasy based on reality" and such a limited production period they didn't have much wiggle room), but I don't have much attachment to many of Nomura's designs so I enjoyed that aspect. I prefer Yoshida, Itahana and...

    DotF up on UK Amazon now too, with the same pre-order date. Oh well, guess there was some kind of delay. Came across an old interview with Kingsglaive director Takeshi Nozue. Hosted by Toei Animation, he described his work on the project. Here's a few key points as the interview is quite long...

    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...

    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

    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...

    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...
