The Tokyo Game Show is in full swing, and we’re expecting more information on Final Fantasy XV, the latest entry in the increasingly less final series, to be released. In the meantime, Square Enix has released another teaser trailer for the game.
Last month at Gamescom, Square Enix released a trailer titled “Dawn” that was set 15 years before the game proper. The trailer showed a young Noctis being held by his father King Regis as the camera slowly panned out to reveal three massive figures looming ominously in the distance.
The new trailer is titled “Dawn 2.0” and like the previous trailer, it also focuses on events 15 years before the game. This trailer shows Lunafreya as she appears in the game, surrounded by guards with guns, thinking back to a similar attack when she was a young girl. Noctis is also shown, thinking back to the events of the previous trailer.
Though this trailer isn’t as chilling as the first, it hints that the relationship between Noctis and Lunafreya will be important to the game. Director Hajime Tabata previously told GameSpot that while the two will be romantically involved, it won’t be a “typical love story.”
While plenty of elements familiar to Final Fantasy fans are present in the latest effort in full force, this is in many ways the biggest departure from previous games to date. One of the biggest changes comes in the fact that Square Enix is aiming for a simultaneous worldwide release for the game, while previous games always came out in Japan first with other regions following later on.
Final Fantasy XV will be available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and while no specific release date has been nailed down, Tabata confirmed at PAX last month that the game would be released in 2016, with more information on the release date to be revealed at a special event in March.
