Final Fantasy XV: New Link Attacks Revealed; Equipment Menu Explained for Noctis and His Bros

on August 8, 2016 3:34 PM

The latest issue of Jump magazine had a page on Final Fantasy XV, focusing on link attacks and the equipment menu.

We get to see two link attacks, one featuring Noctis and Prompto as they exchange weapons, with the prince using Prompto’s own guns to strike. Another happens when Gladio equips a shield as a sub-weapon,┬ájumping over Noctis’ back. The captions mention that link attacks will vary depending on the circumstances and on what weapons are equipped by each character.

Creating scenes similar to an “action movie,” they can activated for instance after a successful parry or when attacking from behind.

While the pictures are fairly small, we also get a breakdown of the equipment menu.

For Noctis we get a “main weapon” selection, allowing to switch instantly between four different ones. An “accessory” selection lets you equip three different accessories with various effects.

Noctis’ merry bros will have a “command” selection that lets you equip a series of commands that can be activated during battle, and a “main weapon/sub weapon” selection that lets you equip different combinations of implements of destruction.
