Hello everyone its me again with your weekly Wish-List update. For those of you who don’t know already the UNCOVERED: FINAL FANTASY XV event took place on March 30th and man did they deliver. As we were told the event would be giving us an official release date for the game as well as more information about the game and other related projects. There was a boat load of info given to us, but I really just want to focus on three things in particular. The first being the game itself and the info that we’ve gathered about it so far, next is the Anime prequel that has been started up, and finally I’ll talk about the movie that was announced.
So like I was saying UNCOVERED: FINAL FANTASY XV gave us a whole lot of information to shift through. The first and probably the most relevant of which was that the game will be officially released to consoles on September 30th, 2016. Beyond this point I will not be holding back with spoilers, as I’ll assume you’ve already played the demo or have some prior knowledge, so here’s your warning SPOILERS! We were also given a free demo for download called Platinum Demo, where we get to play around in Noctis’s dreamscape as kid Noctis. At first you just walk around while following your dream spirit guide Carbuncle, yes that is its name, and the first thing that catches your attention is that the giant from the Reclaim your Throne trailer comes to see you. If you didn’t get excited about seeing that guy stare at you through the rock arch don’t worry. The reason why is because the next surprise they give you is after stepping on one of the gold plates you see the Leviathan fly out of the ocean and into the lake behind you. The first time I saw this little scene I nearly fell out of my chair I was so happy. To wrap things up about the demo the last scene we get is when Noctis is faced with a real enemy and turns into the adult Noctis after remembering his father say that ” In the world of your dreams you are king”. You then proceed to beat the crap out of the enemy with real weapons and spells.
Getting closer to the wish part of this blog I’m really looking forward to the Animated prequel series that will be leading into the point in the story where the game will start off. I watched the first episode that was released, look it up on YouTube if you get the chance, and from what I’ve seen I have high hopes for the series. I’m really hoping that we get to see some of the characters other than the three musketeers that travel around with Noctis. I’m also really hoping that we get some extensive background story development out of this series and from what they’ve shown us in the first episode alone I have high hopes. In my opinion the funniest plot development in the series was finding that originally Noctis was going on a road trip before his wedding with Luna, but after Niflheim decided to invade Lucis the bachelors party was extended indefinably. I just have that feeling that this game will basically be one big four way bromance and I couldn’t be happier about it.
Now we get to the good stuff, If information serves us correctly Square Enix plans on releasing a movie of FF XV called Kingsglaive sometime before FF 15 comes out. We also learned that some of the voice actors include Lena Headey and Sean Bean from Game of Thrones and Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad. I was personally a little surprised that such big names were going to star in a movie about a video game, but then realized that video games are totally Epic and then all of my shock was gone. The movie will not be in theaters sadly, however it will be available for streaming and or download when it’s released.
My rant has finally come to an end, so I hope you all enjoyed the Final Fantasy XV update and are already planing out how you’re going to get the month of October off to play the game. With that I’ll see you guys next week.
