It’s been a long time since Final Fantasy took to the big screen, but the launch of the highly anticipated Final Fantasy XV is bringing with it a brand new movie adventure that will connect to the game. We first heard of it during March’s big FF event (where the release date was announced), but with E3 going on, they’ve released a brand new, and incredible looking trailer:
The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the sacred Crystal, and the menacing empire of Niflheim is determined to steal it. King Regis of Lucis (Sean Bean) commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, Nyx (Aaron Paul) and his fellow soldiers fight to protect Lucis. As the overwhelming military might of the empire bears down, King Regis is faced with an impossible ultimatum – to marry his son, Prince Noctis to Princess Lunafreya of Tenebrae (Lena Headey), captive of Niflheim, and surrender his lands to the empire’s rule. Although the king concedes, it becomes clear that the empire will stop at nothing to achieve their devious goals, with only the Kingsglaive standing between them and world domination.
Kingsglaive will hit select theaters across the country on August 19, 2016, and Final Fantasy XV the game will launch on September 30th.
