A new trailer has been released for Final Fantasy XV at the ongoing Jump Festa 2015 event showcasing brand new gameplay and footage. The video gives a glimpse into the open world mechanic, the towns you may visit and characters you can meet on your long car journey. The video also has both English and Japanese versions of the trailer. The game is set in a near future world based on modern Earth, with various countries and continents that have engaged in war over the crystals. Only one crystal remains and is located in Lucis. Players will be playing as Noctis Lucis Caelum, the prince of Lucis who has a strange mystical power.
The game itself will deviate greatly from past Final Fantasy titles, with the game being a full Action Role Playing Game, created by Tetsuya Nomura, known for the Kingdom Hearts series. Nomura has stepped down from his director role of the game to work on Kingdom Hearts III, with Hajime Tabata, the director of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy Type-0, taking the directing role.
Final Fantasy XV will be releasing on Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One. No release date has been announced so far. The game’s first demo will be bundled with the release of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD.
