Originally announced in 2006 alongside Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XV has become one of gaming’s most notorious titles. Its development has been fraught with numerous delays, rumors of becoming vaporware, and even the possibility of turning into a musical. Yes, a musical. While the game’s E3 2013 showing renewed faith that it still exists, it had absolutely zero presence at E3 2014 whatsoever. Given the game’s history this was….concerning, to say the least.
This week’s Tokyo Game Show brought a number of announcements about Final Fantasy XV, and while none of them are a release date (or even a window) they are pretty noteworthy nonetheless.
First is the game’s new trailer, showcasing Final Fantasy XV‘s new playable cast taking a roadtrip across a gorgeously rendered world. It ends with protagonist Noctis stating that they’re, “…almost there.”
Cute, Square Enix. Cute.
