FINAL FANTASY XV Trailer and Other TGS Highlights

The Tokyo Game Show is here again, which means lots and lots of incredible gaming news about some of Japan’s hottest properties is on the horizon! The kick-off has been intense, with trailers for everything from Metal Gear Solid V to Bloodborne flooding the web – but none so far have surpassed the long-awaited payoff of seeing some brand spankin’ new Final Fantasy XV footage! And oh yes, it’s glorious. Especially since we’ve been waiting for this game since 2006 back when it was called Final Fantasy XIII Versus.

On today’s Nerdist News, join Jessica Chobot as she runs down the best-looking footage from TGS so far, reveals the coolest details we can glean from the new FFXV trailer, and clues you in to why this might be one of the coolest Final Fantasys yet.

    I’m definitely excited for this game. Real time action combat was one of the highlights for kingdom hearts for me, so to explore that kind of syste, in the Final Fantasy world, with all new characters and possibilities? I just hope they don’t screw it up- game’s been in development for like 10 years…

    A final Fantasy game with cars, and characters that look like douchy retro stereotypes of Asians in North American styles no just no. Transportation in an RPG game aside from walking around needs to be ships, airships, horses (possibly with a carriage for your characters and your stuff) not f’n sports cars or any cars for that matter. Also swords and armor are needed, not guys running around or driving in current clothes. That being said I’m totally fine with the combat system but as for the look of the world and characters and transportation take a page from series like Dragon Warrior/Dragon Quest, Fable, Dragon Age, Legend of Zelda and even older Final Fantasy games (1-6, 9-12).

    Soo….. Final Fantasy XV it’s cadillacs & dinossaurs?

    I just can’t wait till it finally comes out. I’ve following this game sense it was call XIII Versus. 

  6. PheFo says:

    I really can’t care about this anymore. The best thing to come out since Squaresoft became Square-Enix has been Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions for the PSP. A re-release…which is about all this company is good for anymore. If we’re talking just original games, then it would be Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII. Also for the PSP. Everything else has been sub-par at best and I wouldn’t expect much more from this game either.

    Final Fantasy “finally” looks kind of playable for me.
