Square Enix Releases 53-Minutes of Final Fantasy XV Footage


Today, Square Enix released a 53-minute “Master Version” Gameplay trailer look-in for their, now delayed, Final Fantasy XV game.   In it, fans get to see new features that they’ll get to experience on November 29, 2016.  Features including, Chocobo racing, new monsters, side quests, equipment, ability and magic synthesis systems, and the Wait Mode.  As well as a lot of story elements.  Make sure you have a lot of time on your hands for this video.

However, that’s not the only trailer they gave us today.  In fact, they also showed off a new trailer for the 4th episode of Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV!

Episodes 1-3 can be streamed on Youtube, right now, for free.  Episode 4 will join them tomorrow, August 17th, at 8AM PT.

Lastly, their prequel to Final Fantasy XV, Kingsglaive is coming out soon so Square Enix thought it best to show off the first 12 minutes of their action-packed animation film, starring Sean Bean, Aaron Paul, and Lena Headey.

Narrated by Lena Headey (who plays Princess Luna), the prologue sets the stage for the world of Eos, the Kingdom of Lucis and its ruler King Regis (played by Sean Bean). A battle outside the city walls of Insomnia introduces viewers to the elite unit known as the Kingsglaive, and their fearless soldier Nyx (played by Aaron Paul). The CG movie will be available digitally on August 30th.

The 53 and 12-minute videos for Final Fantasy XV just seem excessive.  It feels as if Square Enix is apologizing for their 2 month delay.  When, in reality, gamers will live without playing the 15th installment of the series for another couple of months.  This is coming from a huge Final Fantasy fan.  I’ve loved the series from the beginning and have played all of them, even the online ones.  As a fan-base we understand, or at least we should, that delays can unexpectedly happen.  We don’t need 53-minute apology videos that ultimately spoil parts of the gaming experience.

I’m sure there will be more videos in the coming months, but it won’t be necessary.  Whether its on November 2016 or July 2017, we’re still going to be playing Final Fantasy XV.

Fortunately, we won’t have to wait until 2017.  Final Fantasy XV releases November 29, 2016!

What do you think of all these trailers?
