Final Fantasy XV Getting Multiple Gallery Features; Japanese Official Forums Closing, Dev Blog Coming

on February 4, 2016 10:39 PM

Square Enix posted more information on Final Fantasy XV on the official forums, by way of UI Planner Takahiro Noda.

We learn that there’s going to be a mode that will let you check out the 3D models of enemies, characters, weapons and food according to your progress in the game, but there are no plans to include other items. Additionally, a CG gallery is planned, but no further information on that can be provided for now.

Prompto will also take pictures of the group’s trip, and you will be able to peruse them in the gallery. While shooting features are not full-fledged, according to Noda-san, it will make for fun memories of the adventure.

In addition to this, the Community Team also announced that the Japanese version of the forums will be closed. In their place, an official blog will be implemented. Leading to this decision is the idea of creating a place where the exchange of information with users, the collection of feedback, and the transmission of info from the development staff can be done in a way that makes is easier to participate with an intuitive format for everyone in Japan.

The forums will close on February 12th, and that also marks the opening of the official blog, which will be accessible from the official site, and will also include links to development information previously posted in the forums. It will be possible to post comments on the new blog, and a Square Enix Members account will be required.

It’s relevant to mention that the announcement is, for now, explicitly about the Japanese forum, and there has been no notice about the closure of the English forum, and of the opening of an English official blog.
