Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Director Hajime Tabata’s Active Time Report presentation just ended at Taipei Game Show and it was definitely interesting.
Tabata-san showcased a live demo of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, which you can see below (courtesy of YouTube user Mash Yang), and then moved on to Final Fantasy XV, presenting a work-in-progress video showcasing a complex train station environment in development using a “cat cam,” matching the “dog cam” that was used to showcase the town of Lestallum.
It’s worth mentioning that the cat cam and dog cam were used to avoid spoilers and to reach areas that aren’t usually accessible. At Jump Festa Tabata-san mentioned that the dog cam won’t really be in the game.
You can see a video of it, courtesy of YouTube user 白淳易, and some pictures in the gallery at the bottom of the post, alongside more shots from the event posted by Sony Computer Entertainment Taiwan on Facebook.
Interestingly, Tabata-san announced that the environment showcased in the video is “Fully made in Taiwan.” In fact, it’s in development by a Taiwanese third party studio named Xpec Entertainment, which previously worked on smaller games like Shrek Forever After and Kung Fu Panda for Activision, and is now collaborating with Square Enix on Final Fantasy XV‘s development.
Update: added a second video of the cat cam, courtesy of YouTube user Mash Yang.
