PlayStation 4 manufacturer and Japanese tech giant Sony was present at this year’s Taipei Game Show, where they had some of the upcoming games headed to the PS4 on display at the event. The company showcased their usual lineup of anticipated games, most of which were captured on the official livestream. Another channel, Cube Network, managed to capture some interesting aspects of their show that weren’t covered elsewhere, including a presentation from Square Enix.
Final Fantasy XV’s game director Hajime Tabata took the stage to talk about the ongoing development of the game, which is slated for release sometime this year on the PS4 and Xbox One. He disclosed that nine Asian studios were collaborating on the development of the upcoming JRPG, two of which were from Taiwan and Shanghai, respectively.
The director revealed two pictures on the screen to the audience, which showed never-before-seen assets from the upcoming game.
The first picture depicts some of the metal buildings that are set to appear in the game’s modern environment. You can see what looks like an industrial boring machine, a round building, and a vehicle that’s clearly an RV. The art appears to be done by PlusMile.
The second image shows some monster designs and an older human character by XPEC Art Center. One of the monsters looks like a dragon. The other looks like a giant tree monster. There’s also a fish and some food on a plate. There’s also some sort of giant tank, and a dress on a plastic model.
We’ll just have to wait and see how each of these items fits into the game when it’s released. In a previous reveal with a video demonstration, Square Enix announced that they will disclose the game’s release date on March 30.
