In the trailer, Square Enix gives players a little glimpse of what they can expect on their epic journey.

 

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV

A feature-length CG film known as Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV was announced which is set during the period of the game, but focuses more on the Regis and the overall kingdom of Lucis. As of right now, the animated film will launch before Final Fantasy XV though no specific date has been set.

Brotherhood is an anime series that will contain five standalone episodes which give a backstory between the game’s protagonist and his three fellow friends.  Best of all, the anime series will be uploading for free on YouTube for everyone to enjoy with the first episode available right now.

 

Platinum Demo

It’s not unusual for video games to receive a demo, but for Final Fantasy XV Square Enix has decided to create a unique demo that doesn’t include any content from in the official game. Instead, the demo will feature a young Noctis in a dream world. If players can complete the demo, they’ll unlock the Carbuncle summon DLC for free when the game launches. You can get the demo at some point tonight.
