A new playable demo for "Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy 15" was recently showcased at GamesCom 2016 in Germany. Square Enix provided over 50 minutes of gameplay footage on its Japanese YouTube page to appease "Final Fantasy 15" fans who were not able to attend.
In the "Final Fantasy 15" video, Noctis Lucius Caelum was the first to appear. He stood in a fiery dungeon, looking at a ferocious demon sitting on a throne that he and the team need to defeat. The crown prince and heir of Lucius has the objective of protecting the city from various criminals who are attempting to acquire the last crystal possessed by the kingdom. Other "Final Fantasy 15" characters were also present in the video, namely Ignis Scientia, Prompto Argentum and Gladiolus Amicitia.
Polygon described that the "Final Fantasy 15" clip moved from one scene to the next, without spending much time on a single level. The team was shown traveling to different locations in their classic vehicle. There were also plenty of combat scenes, dialogues between the characters and new people they came across, missions and cinematic previews. The whole "Final Fantasy 15" video was actually in English, complete with English subtitles.
GameSpot stated that "Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy 15" features a number of famous celebrities voicing the characters, namely Sean Bean, Aaron Paul and Lena Headey. In the story, the Kingsglaive is an elite force of soldiers serving King Regis of Lucis (Bean). Nyx (Paul) and his fellow solders protect Lucis with their king's magic.
The king was commanded by their enemy to have his son, Prince Noctis, marry Princess Lunafreya of Tenebrae (Headey), who is held captive by Nilfheim, and surrender his kingdom to the latter. "Final Fantasy 15" seems to promise a lot of adventures and activities. The characters were shown riding chocobos, fishing, driving and taking on missions. The group is expected to come across a number of interesting villains as well.
"Final Fantasy 15" was originally announced to release on Sept. 30, 2016 on PlayStation 4. However, Square Enix postponed the official launch to November 29. More updates and details on "Final Fantasy 15" are expected soon.
