Final Fantasy XV Hajime Tabata probes the fans' reactions to the possibility of two different new endings for Square Enix's JRPG.

Today Final Fantasy XV Director Hajime Tabata was at the closing event of the Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary Exhibition – Farewell Story Exhibition – at the Mori Art Center Gallery in Roppongi, Tokyo, and he took the chance to have a fan meet and greet at the venue.

If you have not played the game, and want to go in blind, especially with the impending release of the Windows Edition and the Royal Edition, keep in mind that the rest of the post includes possible spoilers, as it could easily let you guess the tone of Final Fantasy XV‘s original ending. Continue reading at your own risk.

Interestingly, as reported by Twitter user ゆき, he asked the fans in attendance if they’d like to see a “happy end” and a “super bad end” in the game.

Considering that Final Fantasy XV is going to have additional content all the way into 2019, it wouldn’t be too surprising if branching endings were added to satisfy those who felt unfulfilled by what we originally got.

While I (obviously) won’t go into details, and I really liked the original ending, I can’t say I wouldn’t really enjoy a happy end to conclude this adventure with a smile.

That being said, we should keep in mind that we don’t know the purpose behind this question, and we should not consider this a promise that said new endings will actually come.

Incidentally, the picture at the top of this post is not currently part of the game but was simply released to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Final Fantasy XV is currently available on PS4 and Xbox One and will launch on PC on March 6th, alongside the Royal Edition consoles. If you want to see more, you can check out a trailer for each a batch of 4K screenshots, and some rather insane images taken thanks to Nvidia Ansel in the recently-released benchmark of the Windows Edition. In case you can’t run the benchmark on your own PC, you can also enjoy a video.
