That’s true.

What I don’t understand is, if the Royal Edition sales are vital for the funding of the upcoming DLC, why aren’t they hyping and marketing it more?

Leaving it a few days prior is cutting it too close.

Or perhaps it’s to conserve their budget?

I can’t say I understand what their marketing is doing lol.
Perhaps they're trying not to spoil everything this time in regards to the new content?

Honestly they really don't have to spoil anything to hype up the Royal Edition. Give us a proper showcase of Armiger Unleashed here, a short snippet of the Omega fight there, and a peek or two at the expanded city. That literally all they needed to do. That like 4 little things that don't spoil anything and can be spread out over the course of the month long wait between the RE announcement and it's release. If SE's marketing team weren't run by monkeys they could easily have kept up hype while keeping important story details secret and could have maybe even enticed people that jumped ship to return or attracted more new faces that maybe skipped over the original release. I agree with @Jubileus, if what Tabata said is true and both the royal edition/pack and windows edition sales really do matter that much to future development then SE's approach to marketing these two things has been less than stellar and does raise concern for the quality of all incoming content going forward. Honestly would be tragic if SE cuts that 4 episode support short just because of a marketing blunder.

Unused version of Luna's theme:

& an unused version of the FF main theme:

Don't know where these come from, have they been datamined perhaps?
That unused Luna theme is amazing though I feel like it played during a Luna and Ravus scene, specifically the one in Altissia. Could be wrong. As for the FF theme I prefer the version they went with in the main game though this one is nice too.

Thanks so much for sharing!

New music is always appreciated :)

That Luna theme is absolutely beautiful. It sounds like something that could’ve been used in a cutscene. Oh I do hope they put it back into the game.

As for the FF theme, it sounds like a live orchestra to me... perhaps it has been ripped from somewhere and the poster just slapped the FFXV unused music label on it?

I still prefer the one they used in the game though.

the magazine gladio loves to read


( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

the cards from platinum demo/tent


it reads "Fabula Nova Crystallis" on the red card, and i think "Etro" on the first one (yeah each one has a different mark, first is Etro, second Pulse and third Lindzei, all written in their respective alphabet); this is the same deck of cards used in XIII-2.

funny that the lady in white (guess that's one representation of Etro) is so alike to ghost Luna.

edit:

here's a possible translation for each card if you're interested.
So this is what they meant when they were going to include magazines and books...
