Much to the disappointment of everyone who preordered “Final Fantasy XV,” (this family included), Square Enix has officially confirmed that they have delayed the release until the end of November.
“Final Fantasy XV” was supposed to release in early September but developers have decided to push the release until November 29.
In a video released on the official Final Fantasy XV YouTube channel, the game’s director, Hajime Tabata, assured gamers that the “master version” of the game was ready, but that the team wanted to make the “highest quality version” of the game available to everyone, including those who didn’t have their consoles connected to the internet.
According to the video, the main reason to delay release was to prevent players from having to download a huge patch immediately as it releases. Tabata said he’s opting to delay the game entirely and include the patch with the base game at release.
If there is one thing that gamers hate, its a huge day one patch. They are frustrating and often feel avoidable.So in the end, hopefully this delay is for the better.
The upcoming “Final Fantasy XV” movie, titled Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, actually looks pretty impressive especially now that we know who is going to star in the CGI feature length film.
According to Square Enix and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Aaron Paul, Lena Headey and Sean Bean will voice three of the film’s central characters. Paul will voice Polearm of the King Nyx Ulric, who is making every effort to stave off the “inexorable advance of Niflheim’s imperial army.” Headey lends her voice to the captive princess Luna, thrust into an arranged marriage to King Regis’ son in a last-minute effort to quell the mounting conflict. Meanwhile, Bean embodies King Regis of Lucis, the ruler of a magical kingdom that’s been warring with the Niflheim empire over the precious Hallowed Crystal. Regis also serves as commander to the Kingsglaive, an elite group of soldiers sworn to protect the crown city of Insomnia.
Square Enix has even shared a teaser trailer for the film andSony Pictures Home Entertainment plans to release the film worldwide via streaming service and download.
“Final Fantasy XV” the game is going to officially release on September 30. However, according to the official Final Fantasy XV Twitter, these actors will not reprise their roles in the full game.
