Final Fantasy 15 trailer debuts at Tokyo Game Show

Despite a director shakeup earlier tonight, Square Enix didn't come to Tokyo Game Show empty-handed, showing a new trailer for Final Fantasy 15.


While it's been no secret that Final Fantasy XV (formerly known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII) has had a troubled development cycle, right down to a director shakeup earlier tonight, that doesn't mean Square Enix was going to come to this year's Tokyo Game Show empty-handed. The publisher came fully prepared for a new trailer for the upcoming RPG. Beyond looking spiffy, it also confirms the leaked info about the game's demo from late last night.

The latest two-and-a-half minute trailer shows some more bits and pieces of the game's story, as well as more footage of the game's real-time battle system.

The end of the original Japanese trailer shows information for 'Episode Duscae,' the rumored Final Fantasy XV demo set to hit next year in March. According to the original Game Informer article (since pulled), the demo will come free with copies of the upcoming Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, also set to hit Xbox One and PS4 in 2015.

The North American trailer with English subtitles can be seen below.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      I laughed thinking it was a parody when it started off with the car ride. I guess I just don't get Final Fantasy.

        I literally burst out laughing within the first three seconds.

        Everything looks top notch, but thematically rolling around in a college road trip movie with a bunch of rich japanese bros is the silliest god damn thing for a game.

      Lighting is exceptional, almost GTAV quality colour / light - world looks cool but I don't "get" final Fantasy :/

        It actually feels more final fantasy in the vein of FF6 and FF7 with the current-ish tech mixed with fantasy elements. I think it looks great.

      Huh. That doesn't look terrible. Odd. but at least there isn't a sea of generic, androgynous 13 year olds.

        Haha, looked good but still not sure how that'll work out. Wish they'd just leave the FF name and call these something else now days.

      OMG...AMAZING. When they drove by the field with the...'dinosaurs'??? The girl sitting at the table??? This entire preview just reminds me of what I used to love about FFs 7-10/12-how gorgeous the cutscenes were. But the gameplay looked fun too! I need this game in my life. Just wow. PREORDERING TODAY (assuming you can pre-order it)!!!! This looks like it could be the best FF game ever. EVER. Now please excuse me while I watch that trailer 10 more times.

      So it's going to be an open world / field similar to xenoblade, with several travel mechanics available (car, airship, chocobo). Sounds good to me, fuck yeah.
