Final Fantasy XV Gets One More ATR; Japanese Store Manager Reports Increase in Pre-Orders due to Demo

on November 25, 2016 2:06 PM

Final Fantasy XV is now extremely close to its almost surreal release, and Square Enix will celebrate with one more Active Time Report broadcast from Tokyo, hosted by Global Brand Director Akio Ofuji and Development Manager Yasuaki Nasu.

The livestream, that you can find embedded below, will start on November 27th at 11:00 PM Japan time, and will be pre-recorded, promising to deliver the latest information on the day one “Crown Update.”

On top of that, the stream of count down art for the game is continuing, and at the bottom of the post you can see the “four days to go” art by Kouta Niihara.

Last, but not least, we get information from Japan. The store manager of the popular Tokyo-based independent store Games Ma-Ya, in the Edogawa district reports¬†that pre-orders of the PS4 version of the game have been increasing considerably, and often the reason given by her customers is “because the demo was fun.”

The latest “Judgement Disk” demo was indeed a great way to promote the game, thanks to the extensive and rather polished gameplay it provided. It’s unfortunate that Square Enix did not manage to provide a localization, but so close to release, it’s also understandable.
