Final Fantasy XV Gets Spectacular PS4 Gameplay: Boss Battle Against The Dragoon Aranea and More

on November 24, 2016 11:33 AM

Today Final Fantasy XV Director Hajime Tabata took part in the latest episode of the Nico Nico livestream Denjin Getcha!, and showcased more gameplay of the upcoming JRPG, that will be released for PS4 and Xbox One on November 29th.

The first viedeo that can see below shows a battle against a Niflheim mecha and a platoon of imperial soldiers, played live on PS4. It’s very nice, but the best is yet to come…

The second video features the boss battle against the dragoon Aranea Highwind, which in previous reveals shown only at night. Here it happens during the day, giving a better look on the action. This shows once more how the game changes a lot due to the day/night cycle, and even events can look quite different depending on whether they happen during the day or at night.

There was actually a third video, but I will put that one in a separate post because it’s a quite massive spoiler. Please don’t talk about it in the comments of this post, but if you don’t mind the spoiler, you can go see it here.

Aranea Highwind was re-revealed in a gameplay video back in January, she is nicknamed “the Dragoon”due to her aerial combat capabilities, and she is in command of Niflheim’s 87th Airborne Unit.

You can enjoy both videos below, and you can also check out a few lovely trailers released earlier this morning, featuring five music tracks from the game.

Keep in mind that the videos were recorded from Nico Nico, so they’re affected by the usual terrible compression and resolution that characterizes that specific livestreaming platform. That said, Aranea’s fight is the coolest thing since sliced bread regardless of video quality.
