Final Fantasy XV Details Appear on Official Xbox One and PS4 Japanese Websites

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.

    Im just gutted that i bought a PS3 just to play this game and it didnt even come after 5 years of waiting… I hope SE give PS gamers some form of exclusive content or what ever since they screwed us over bigtime

    • Dennis Djoenz

      That was exactly my situation lol. I bought my ps3 for Versus now FFXV. I cant believe SE dragged the FFXIII for so long. Pfff.

      • Redinferno124

        I do.

      • Kingdom17

        Bought it for FF and KH. Don’t regret it but… yeah.

        • Dennis Djoenz

          Wait I actually bought PS3 also for the last Guardian hahahaaaaa. Not regretting it either would have bought one eventually any way like I will buy a ps4 by the end of this year.

      • sackgirl102

        Me too. Exclusives sell consoles. Well it sold it for me. I mean imagine if everbody that brought a Xbox and then Halo didn’t come out. I am sure the fans would be real happy. (i never liked Halo when i played it) i still own a xbox but i brought a PS4 over xbox one. Anyway this game dragged on way too long and for what now it’s gone multiplat.

    • SniStre Zyx

      fullhd content in the way :3

    • notcarolkaye

      If you really bought a PS3 just for this game, why not wait for a firm release date? They didn’t screw you. You screwed yourself.

      • Blackmaile

        Well dipshit if your favorite game was coming for your favorite console exclusively would you not then buy that console? when i first sin the trailer the game was coming out WITH FF13 . You idiot

        • notcarolkaye

          Well, I know when I’m beat. You win. I don’t stand a chance against somebody who can craft such an incisive comeback in only two weeks. You’re right. You decided to buy a PS3 so Square Enix owes you something. Totally kid. That is absolutely how reality works.

    • disqus_rIjnBIKvqC

      SE better give the PS guys some form of exclusiveness,but personally when SE decided to screw with me and not release it on ps3 after so many years I really dont care about FF anymore. as you, I have waited since the annoucements aswell in 2006, it has stated ps3 only,and bam they dont make it for ps3,they move it and rename it to ps4.

    • Sigurd Simensen

      bought one just 2 years ago. for this and the last guardian. heck the
      last guardian will probably also slip away from my grip and move on to

  • Wargreymon559 .

    PS4 version will be the definitive version.

    • azureknight

      I hope they release a limited edition FFXV PS4 in Japan. Would import one.

      • PhantomVash808

        It’s almost a guarantee as you can bet both Sony and Square and counting on this to be a system seller.

    • dranzer1


      • Redinferno124

        This isn’t even up for debate. FF is one of those franchises that perform better on one platform vs the other. One doesn’t need to look hard to realize most of the sales for the previous FF comes from the Playstation side. This is a fact most Xbox fans avoid arguing. It’s not worth debating. The game will sell very well regardless of what system, it will simply sell more on Playstaion on nostalgia alone.

        • Kingdom17

          At least 60% of the sales for FF games on the last gen where for the PS3, so completely agree.

          • Redinferno124

            Like I said, it’s not a point of debate. It’s just how things have traditionally been.

          • casey

            Up until recently, Sony owned approximately 8.25% of SE stocks. That may have contributed to SE’s previous releases being strongly tied to the playstation platforms.


          • Tazwar Choudhury

            regardless it doesn’t affect the experience of players who have lived with FF on a PS console
            That just means in the future, SQ might do a bit less for sony exclusive wise and maybe dlc wise

        • Josh Hindman

          If it’s nostalgia they want, release the game on the Wii U. FF was a Nintendo franchise before it was anyone else’s.

      • Ta23 Ta28

        Dat post history.

        Sure is an asspained dudebro Xbot in here.

    • aeris bueller

      PS4 version will be the gimped version for parity with XBox One. I’m sure Square and their principleless leadership are eager for some of that MS money. And MS will be more than eager to acquire them for their past sales performance and use the studio to it’s fullest like they did with Rare.

      • Wargreymon559 .

        Ehh don’t think so man or other wise all other Multiplats would be suffering but that’s not the case.

        • aeris bueller

          Multiplats will never look as good as an exclusive could have.

          • sackgirl102

            I agree. When it goes multiplatform it’s the fans who loses out on quality of the game.

    • ragnathebloodedge

      All the way.

  • PrinceHeir

    Interesting 😀

    Maybe this was supposed to be a long summary for the site, but cut it in half and posted it on different versions of the game.

  • Delsin Rowe

    oh dear god. oh dear god. don’t play with me boys. i love this game. i love this franchise. but after a long time , we can play a REAL final fantasy. thanks for the info. i want the release date.

    • Kingdom17

      Overall your not going to get a FF. Its going to be great, but its not going to be FF with it being an ARPG. Its basically going to be solely FF, KH for me. Hopefully for XVI we get a real turn based game.

      • Boerewors

        True… From what I’ve seen so far it reminded me more of Bayonetta than of FF. Add some typical RPG elements to the action and pour some FF lore over it and there you have our new FFXV. It might turn out to be an excellent game, but if you wanna play a FF game on PS4 that’s more true to its heritage, you can better pick up FFXIV…

      • Ethron Young

        Honestly, I’m getting pretty tired of waiting for the action games to subside, plus all these online FF’s all over the place honestly aren’t helping anything for me. How long has it been since we had a REAL TRADITIONAL FF RPG? FFX? That was so long ago… Spiraling further and further into the action genre is wearing me out. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy the games, but it’s been a long time since I’ve played something satisfying. The pesona games have been a good diversion, but they are no Final Fantasy. Heck, anymore and Final Fantasy is no Final Fantasy. Oh well, I’ll play it, enjoy the story at least, and continue waiting. Fingers crossed for FFXVI.

  • Trim Dose

    hope to god SE not screwing this FF, but knowing their behavior lately is not a good sign.

    • Daniel Lawson

      wtf do you mean… they already screwed it up

      • Cortney SuperSaiyan Randle

        Already screwed it up? Its like you know everything. So what’s gonna happen in three years? Since you know the future.

        • Daniel Lawson

          don’t need to know the future to know the past… been playing final fantasy games since the first came to the states for the NES… hold reset and power off

  • 3rdworldgamer

    so SquareEnix turned the FF franchise from RPG to action. i guess i’ll have to wait and see if this will be good.

    • Dennis Djoenz

      Have you played Kingdom Hearts or Rogue Galaxy? Battlesystem will be similar like from those games.

    • ManagedCorn

      That’s what they’ve been trying to do for a long time now, it comes as no surprise.

    • Jecht_Sin

      Action RPG. That’s where most RPGs are heading.

      • 3rdworldgamer

        i’ll wait for the reviews, gamers feedbacks & videos of gameplay before i decide if i’d buy this. i’m still a fan of turn based RPG’s.

  • dranzer1

    and they said it wouldnt come to Xbox One

    • Redinferno124

      Yeah I’d release it on both too if I was SE. Game needs to make enough money to make up for the last few years of poor sales. I don’t think PS4 alone would be enough to make SE happy considering the called Tomb Raider a failure after it sold 4+ million sales. Stop reaching.

      • Kingdom17

        Unless it would cost a lot to make a Xbox One version I’d see be more profitable for on the PS4 then, but it most certainly would be most profitable to release it on both since I’m sure doesn’t make a huge difference.

  • Microsoft, they want to prove that the Xbox One should be in Japan…

    • Redinferno124

      Then tell them to actually try this time. Lost Odyssey was the only decent thing that they released RPG wise.

      • Daniel Lawson

        Blue Dragon spawned games on 3DS and a Anime

        • Redinferno124

          Wasn’t a big fan. Lost Odyssey was awesome.

          • Kingdom17

            Loved Lost Odyssey, wish MS didn’t own the series. Would like to see another.

          • Redinferno124

            Do they for sure? Is the dev even around anymore?

          • Kingdom17

            Not for sure. Just going off based on Wikipedia. Its still around, it was backed originally by Microsoft so that explains why Lost Odyssey was made exclusively for the 360, but it also made Blue Dragon, which had a game on the 3DS as Daniel said, so it seems possible for it to come to a Sony Platform.

          • Redinferno124

            I’m surprised Lost Odyssey didn’t do better. It was unique for its time.

          • Kingdom17

            It was exclusive to the 360… and it was a turn based JRPG, I don’t think anything else needs to be said about it.

          • Redinferno124

            There was just something different about it though. It’s hard to describe. It wasn’t perfect, but it had potential. It’s like a gem that was found buried in the dirt, got one look and was then buried again.

        • Redinferno124

          3Ds? you mean Xbox? I don’t recall 3Ds.

        • Kingdom17

          Yes, but it still sold only about .89 million, still mostly selling in NA and EU. Forgot about the anime.

  • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

    Well this is interesting. I like the sound of it so far. Given though that SE showed FF XV and KH III both at Sony’s conference, expect the same this year unless The Phantom Pain switches places with one of them.

    • Redinferno124

      PP, KH3, Batman and FF15 better be the only third party titles shown unless something megaton gets announced. Sony and MS need to provide reasons to buy their shit.

      • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

        Yeah, I’m hoping for this E3 to top last year.

        • Redinferno124

          Less mud slinging and more “HAVE YOU SEEN (insert game)???!!”

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            exactly; more show and less tell.

          • Redinferno124

            I’m holding Phil to his more games, no hype statement.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            yup, same here. things should get better for Microsoft now that a hardcore gamer is at the helm.

          • Delsin Rowe

            but , but , but , none of them cant reach nintendo and our beloved zelda 😀

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            yes, I’m counting on Nintendo to hit on a high note by doing an actual conference at E3 and showing us Zelda in its (her) full HD glory. I have a feeling this is an E3 we won’t soon forget, particularly for Nintendo’s case. I hope they don’t prove me wrong. Surely people by then will play multiple consoles including Nintendo Wii U and embrace what Nintendo has to offer when the proof is in the pudding then.

        • Guest

          Last year E3’13 had me like YOOOOO Video Games, hoping this year it will do the same.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3


      • Jessie Bristol

        The more exclusives Microsoft and Sony show during their Media Briefings the better, third party titles are a known quantity.

        • Redinferno124

          It’s like “yeah Batman, but I can play that wherever.”

          Need to prove why your better than the other guy.

      • SageShinigami

        You’re going to be disappointed. Square’s got like, a fuckton of games from Eidos. They gotta go somewhere.

        • Redinferno124

          Oh yeah next Deus Ex.

      • PhantomVash808

        The Next AC game & Destiny will likely appear at Sony’s Press Conference too.

  • Kamille

    Sounds really good! But I really hope this game turns out to be more than just good, I want something amazing after nearly 10 years without a proper FF game thanks to the mediocrity of toriyama.

    “In addition to that, the party battle system is now more advanced, allowing you to enjoy party battle by switching characters more strategically.”

    Way to explain that one. That’s like saying “FFXV is now super cool, its previous coolness has been modified to be more cool.”

  • Vious

    what happen people don’t like square enix anymore?

    • Redinferno124

      I wouldn’t say don’t like them, more like fed up with their bs excuses for why it took almost a decade for this game to get this far.

  • Redinferno124
    • ManagedCorn


      • Redinferno124

        Have a sense of humor man, far too many people get so uptight. You should have seen some of the more annoying people that used to frequent here before they got banned. Too many warnings.

        • ManagedCorn

          There’s no need to frequently post pictures trying to derail topics. I’m not uptight but you’re not bringing anything to the discussion.

          • Redinferno124

            All because I was drunk that one night and posted all that crap? I must have apologized 20 times already.

            Look unless I get a warning from Giuseppe, I’m not gonna stop having fun. Nothing I’ve done so far has truly offended anybody. Anybody who has needs to grow a pair.

            Most of the time, I’m engaged in a conversation with someone here about the topic.

            Please don’t turn this into some long winded debate cause I’m not participating any further.


  • Sǯdi Sǻymeh

    i haven’t bought any next gen yet , but this game will make me wanna 😀

    • Redinferno124

      That’s what I said when PS3 came out lol.

      • Sǯdi Sǻymeh

        sorry i didn’t get it -_-

  • Budgiecat

    please be exc ah I cant

  • Nico Minoru

    Playing this on PS4 will probably be the best bet. Depending on when it releases it’s sales will probably be phenomenal out of anticipation and hell It’s Final Fantasy on Next Gen lol why would a fan miss out on that?

    I know personally I’ve been playing them from the start and I don’t have any complaints about any of them really at this point it is what it is either you love the franchise or you hate it and since Square issued the statement about now focusing less on trying to appeal to all audiences and more on what made them great in the first place after the success and praise Bravely Default got XV is going to be something special.

  • TheOneAndOnlyTruth

    Square Enix and Ubisoft usually have their own stage anyway

  • Tengu Buranchi


  • Galen Nycroft

    I will pick up the game for whatever platform releases it first. I think it would be crappy of SE to release two, system specific versions though.

  • Daniel Ortiz Nieto

    Those mechanics sound like Chrono Trigger meets FFXII (without using gambits)… so how is it something new, or new to the series? That promotion seems to be made to distance themselves from FFXIII, and trust the short memory span of most of the customers.

    I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

    (Not criticizing the game, just how they advert it.)

  • 1Truth

    Let me know when FFXVI by Hiroyuki Ito is announced.

  • Anthony Oury

    These descriptions aren’t that terribly different. BTW FFXV will appear at the Square-Enix stage. 😛

  • invaderchowderisland

    This is such bs. This game should have been released like 5 years ago on the ps3. Great now I have to buy a ps4 for this.

  • Dimas

    when is the hell release date ????
