If you've been patiently waiting for Final Fantasy XV to reach retail shelves, you may want to go ahead and get ready for celebration. It appears the much-anticipated RPG is set for release on September 30.
Earlier today, a video was posted from GameSpot that has since been removed related the info, as well as news that a brand new demo for the game could be dropping today. The new demo is said to feature "final visuals and combat system" as well as offer up a special Carbuncle summon as a reward for completing it. And that's something I want to get behind.
The demo follows young Noctis and should showcase some pretty awesome content, so I'm ready to sink my teeth into it. If the game releases this fall for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, that should be plenty of time to work through my ever-growing backlog before delving into another main Final Fantasy entry, which as you know is an enormous timesuck.
It's likely the official announcement is still coming, so we'll wait for it and see what the future actually holds, but hey, here's some footage to soak up in the meantime.

I don't get their determination to keep pushing combat closer to ARPG territory. Just make that a different brand all together, like they've already done.
I guess it's the numbers. The only reason to keep doing this is that they must see sales trending towards ARPG than traditional JRPG/active time battle style. I blame the millennials!
