so i was checking the localization differences between the japanese and english versions and the literal translation of some names and terms (from wiki), and there are some interesting changes (some for the better)

Cindy - Cidney
Takka - Takka Bledum (only has a surname on jp version)
Ascension - Ability Call
Armiger - Summon Phantom Swords
Cosmogony - Origins of the Stars
Citadel - Royal City Castle
Daemon - Corpse
Elemancy - Magic
Messengers - Angels
Oracle - Calmer of Gods
Sylleblossom - Flower of Zeal
The Wall - Magic barrier


this is the intriguing one

Angelgard - Shadow God Island

for those that dont know, the Astrals in japanese have generic names like:

Fire God Ifrit, instead of Infernian
Sword God Bahamut, instead of Draconian
Giant God Titan, instead of Archean

and so on, so who does this Shadow God refers to? maybe the island was originally related to another summon later unused, Odin perhaps?

theres also this old but insightful interview about their localization process and decisions:
Maybe it's from back when Etro was still relevant? Since her whole theme is death and whatnot.

hmm dont know, i think its more recent than when Etro was removed; the only summon that didnt make the cut based on the datamine was Odin, that would be my bet and it matches the Shadow God title quite nicely.

anyway, FFVIII forever alone lol

The Windows Edition thing is just saying you can play FFXV Windows Edition over at the Coolermaster booth, also that KH3 and DQB2 are also playable at the Sony booth, and KH3 is also playable at a Family Games Pack booth, hence the numbers next to them and them pointed out on the showfloor map. FFXV will have a trailer being shown in the Mega Theater, which itself is just going to be showing a bunch of trailers. It won't have a stage panel like KH3 or some other games are getting based on what's listed.

I'm not expecting an Episode Ardyn trailer, I think it'll be the next Comrades update trailer, and probably some FFXV Universe stuff.

Didn't they tease Episode Ignis with a small snippet during their FFXV universe sizzle reel at last year's TGS despite it being released in late December? While not a sure bet I don't think it's completely out of the question to get another small snippet like that amidst the FFXV Universe sizzle reel they likely have planned for this year. Especially considering the Episode Ignis tease was literally just 3 seconds of him and Ravus standing back to back. So if Episode Ardyn is supposedly still coming out around the december-january window for early winter I could see something like that happening for his episode.

100% new Final Fantasy XV Universe trailer, the last one is a bit old now so they need to upload a new version for sure.

Just my speculation, but according to the update schedule we should get a few contents from Comrades so there's high possibilities for adding a trailer alone just for Comrades and his contents.... And yes, just 20-30 seconds for Episode Ardyn.

They're focused on others titles, we know, but it's so sad.

And also an Update.
But maybe, instead of publishing it. They will show their update plans and tell each one will be available when an episode comes down.

I want this so bad...

That was at Paris Games Week preshow with the ep Ignis trailer iirc, but yeah the 3 second clip in the sizzle reel was at TGS last year. Though I'm not ruling an Ep Ardyn trailer out, I'm just not expecting one since I think they wanna show off the Comrades update content.

I've been thinking about what title the Complete Edition should have.
I see CE as an empty name and not much the Square Enix style of making titles. So i've come with an idea:

Final Fantasy XV: Versus XIII Years.

Refering the life cicle of the game since it was announced till it's "completed" (which it is 13 years).
The Versus term it's used as a reference of how long this game has been struggling to exist, but how the developers and fans support allowed to see their vision fullfilled.

This way SE can have a marketing move to cause nostalgia with trailers showing what they/we have achieved during this time, having the old title in it's cover but in a way that gives meaning to the final game, FFXV.
Like telling "Final Fantasy XV, Our Journey".

What name would you give to the Complete Edition? Do you even care about it? xD

It would be interesting to see..... A Divine Edition, or an Almighty Edition.

And I've had a really crazy idea. A hypothetical "Rebellion Edition" where the subsequent DLC about rejecting the Astrals' path is weaved into the story instead of the known canon. Not alongside, instead of.
