Many expect further details on Final Fantasy XV at E3, but the newly renewed Xbox One Japanese website has a quite interesting official description for the game, including a few more hints on the battle system:
Final Fantasy XV features a high action system unprecedented in the series. By taking advantage of the specs of next generation consoles, characters can move freely across the whole screen. In addition to that, the party battle system is now more advanced, allowing you to enjoy party battle by switching characters more strategically.
As the royal heir of Lucis who has the last crystal in the world, the main character Noctis and his friends will suddenly be involved in the war.
Interestingly enough the official PS4 page has a different description of the game’s mechanics, that complements pretty well the one on the Xbox website.
The battles featured in Final Fantasy XV have evolved greatly from the previous games of the series, as it’s created as an action game. The game switches seamlessly from the field to battle and the combat situation evolves rapidly. It goes on quickly with a sense of full realism.
Also, it’s possible to fight not only with the hero Noctis, but also to switch with other characters. Furthermore, it’s also possible to perform a combination attack with a companion while enjoying the dynamic effect.
Noctis can fight by making use of a variety of weapons and can move quickly within the areas by attacking enemies with stylish action!
You can fight monsters by cooperating with an ally. The ability to fight in collaboration with unique companions is an important feature of this game.
It’s actually quite interesting to see the two platforms getting different descriptions for the game, instead of the usual common blurbs. Of course this doesn’t mean the game will be different on Xbox One and PS4. It’s unlikely that there’ll be any difference besides something related to the unique features of both consoles (Kinect, DualShock 4 and Remote Play).
We’re left with one question: on which stage will Final Fantasy XV appear at E3? Sony or Microsoft? Maybe both? You can place your bets in the comments below.
