New Final Fantasy XV Images Show Map, Prompto’s Photo Mode, Swag and More from Event in Nagoya

Today Square Enix hosted a Final Fantasy XV fan event in Nagoya, Japan, inviting a group of gamers to meet the developers, try out the game and check out related art and items.

Of course swag (plenty of it) was part of the festivities, and quite a few interesting images have emerged from the event.

We get to see a bit of gameplay and new artwork, and even a picture of the map. That specific picture also hides another interesting detail, which is the game’s photo feature. The text in the menu says “Prompto takes pictures along the way when you stop to rest, you can save your favorite photos.”

The menu offers to press square to “save photo,” or circle (that will change to X in the west) to confirm. On the top right you can see the number of pictures saved (which at the moment is 0/100), and “Prompto’s photo level.”

It’ll certainly be interesting to see how the feature will work in the final game.

Incidentally, we also get to see a dish named Merias Stew, which is defined as a “stew with plenty of vegetables” and grants Attack Power Level 2 (+20 attack power) and HP Up Level 3 (Maximum HP +150).
