Final Fantasy XV Gets Lots of Info on Flying Regalia, Demo, Possible Higher Spec PC Version and More

on March 31, 2016 1:10 PM

The Final Fantasy XV team at Square Enix has been providing information on the game on Twitter, talking about various subjects, from the flying Reglia showcased yesterday, to the possibility of a PC version:

We also get some info on the Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV anime series, of which the first episode was released yesterday, including an explanation on the exclusive sixth episode that will be included in the Ultimate Collector’s Edition.

Tabata-san also provided a snippet of information on the Final Fantasy XV: Kingsglaive CGI feature film. Apparently Aaron Paul, Sean Bean and Lena Headey won’tprovide their voices for the game.

The snippet on the possible PC version is rather interesting. First of all, it debunks the rumor generated after yesterday’s livestream by a GameStop ad, that made some believe in an existing PC port (which was an obvious mistake, as if Square Enix wouldn’t have announced it during the two-hour show that went down just minutes before, if it actually existed).

Secondly, it seems to indicate that the development team might be looking into moving to a more advance API for a PC version to be developed after the release of the console version. Considering the research done on the spectacular WITCH CHAPTER 0 [cry] tech demo, DirectX 12 seems to be a likely candidate.

This matches and adds a bit more color to what Tabata-san told us last year when we interviewed him at Gamescom. A PC version is a possibility, but don’t expect it before the PS4 and Xbox One versions are released.
