Square Enix may have heard a collective groan across the globe when they announced the delay of the highly anticipated "Final Fantasy 15," which took years to deliver to eager fans. But because there's nothing else we could do (maybe watch "Kingsglaive?"), we wait.

Meanwhile, "Final Fantasy 15" director Hajime Tabata continues to do the media rounds, updating fans and followers that they are working hard at perfecting the highly anticipated release slated for November. Tabata sat down with Vice to talk about how development of the game has earned the team a "solid production base, which represents groundwork for the future."

Tabata explained that their experiences creating "Final Fantasy 15" led them to have better expectations for what the company can do as a whose, moving forward. He credited the global strategy of the game for teaching him invaluable lessons that they could apply to their future releases. He assured fans, however, that the process was more fun than stressful, despite taking many years.

More importantly, Tabata believes that the decision to move the release of "Final Fantasy 15" was a good one, because he believed that it was "the right thing to do." He added that he continues to keep his ears to the ground and listen to what fans and critics say, but not via the Internet. He admitted that he prefers to listen to journalists and discussing their ideas rather than engaging sometimes emotional fans online.

As fans continue to wait for the arrival of "Final Fantasy 15," Square Enix has released a behind-the-scenes look at how the game was dubbed in English. Polygon reports that the voice actors in the game aren't the same ones you'll hear in "Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy 15," but it will be interesting to see how they play the characters nonetheless. Check out the video below, featuring Jim Pirri as King Regis, Ray Chase as Noctis, Robbie Daymond as Prompto, Adam Corasdell as Ignis, Chris Parson as Gladio, Amy Shiels as Lunafreya, Darin De Paul as Ardyn, and Matthew Mercer as Cor Leonis.

"Final Fantasy 15" will arrive on November 29 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
