Cool Final Fantasy XV (PS4)




Formerly known as FF vs. XIII (and now with a demo confirmed to be released on March 20, 2015), Final Fantasy XV will have been in development for eight years and counting.

The game is an action RPG, and based on this 1080P TGS 2014 footage, it is an absolutely stunning piece of work.

Here's a brief summary of the title:

Quote:
Set in modern times but with a touch of medieval influences, the story focuses on Noctis Lucis Caelum, the prince of a dynasty which rules a city state that has the last remaining crystal.

After the crystal is stolen by an invading nation, Niflheim, a global conflict ensues with all other nations wishing to gain it for themselves. Alongside the main protagonist, Noctis is joined by a military tactician Ignis Scienta, who can deftly handle a katana in battle, a melee fighter named Gladiolus Amicitia, gun-wielding Prompto Argentum, and head of the Royal Family Guards Cor Leonis. There's one other character that appears to get close with Noctis, even if her connection with him is still unknown. Her name is Stella Nox Fleuret, she seems to be strong and fight well with her rapier.

Against this backdrop of a world at war, Noctis Lucis Caelum and his closest friends embark on an epic journey to try and get the crystal back.

The gameplay is more action oriented instead of the traditional turn based or active time battle system that Final Fantasy is known for. It looks similar to the upcoming Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII battle system or Kingdom Hearts.

Like Kingdom Hearts, characters can perform actions like double jumps according to player input and move with great speed. Nomura confirmed that there will be summon elements in the game. Plus enemies will be tied to specific job-types like dragon knight or summoner.

True to Final Fantasy fashion, the world map is an open environment that the player is free to explore and roam about via a car, an airship, or a famed Chocobo. Players will also be able to ride Magitek Armor mechas.

"The game is an action RPG"

Interesting, a Final Fantasy that I might actually like if it in fact does have solid non-turn based game play.

And that fact that it is basically a 4 player co-op GTA clone but with Wooly Mammoths as well makes it interesting.

That trailer... so amazing. March 20th can't get here soon enough, even if I have to buy Type 0 at $60 to get it.

This is also a big reason to get excited, and probably why the game is actually releasing now.
