Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV is a wrap! For months we’ve been teasing what we were going to do with a mysterious “March Event” with the hope that we would announce the release date for the next Final Fantasy.

With Final Fantasy XV we had to bundle things down into 15 items… so if you missed it, here’s the quickest recap of all time!

  1. Hironobu Sakaguchi — the man, the myth, the legend — took center stage to open up the show to talk about how he’s looking forward to Final Fantasy XV becoming a challenger yet again.
  2. A brand-new trailer titled Reclaim Your Throne showed off new combat and a new rendition of the classic song Stand by Me, which is the theme song to Final Fantasy XV.
  3. Yoshitaka Amano, legendary Final Fantasy artist, designed a brand-new animated project titled Big Bang!
  4. Stand by Me was revealed to be sung by none other than Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine.
  5. All-new gameplay was unveiled featuring chocobo riding, updated battle mechanics, magic, and how Titan is summoned.
  6. World of Wonder: Environment Footage brought a soothing tone to showcase how vastly open world the game is looking to be.
  7. A brand-new surprise, Brotherhood Final Fantasy XV was announced! A five-part anime series telling the backstory of all of the friends — the announcement trailer and episode 1 are available to watch here.
  8. Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy, a fully CG movie was announced! Blurring the lines between animation and reality, Kingsglaive tells the story of Nyx — a member of the elite armed forces, the Kingsglaive.
  9. A partnership between Audi was uncovered to show a one-of-a-kind exclusive Audi R8, themed after the world of Kingsglaive .
  10. An all-star voice cast for Kingsglaive was revealed! Aaron Paul, Lena Headey, and Sean Bean headline this star-studded affair.
  11. Justice Monsters Five, a brand-new mobile game was showcased to the world for the first time — a brand-new pinball mini-game will be available on smartphones later this year.
  12. A completely free and quirky demo, Platinum Demo — Final Fantasy XV was shown. Set in a whimsical dreamscape, you play as a child Noctis traversing the world with your new pal, Carbuncle.
  13. Final Fantasy XV Deluxe Edition

  14. Two blockbuster editions were announced! The deluxe edition which contains both Final Fantasy XV and the Kingsglaive movie will be available in limited quantities. And in even more select quantities is the ultimate collector’s edition (which contains more content than this entire blog!) — pre-order your edition of choice here!
  15. Final Fantasy XV Ultimate Collector's Edition

  16. The release date was finally uncovered and confirmed! September 30, 2016 worldwide!
  17. Lastly, the Uncovered Extended trailer debuted even more gameplay and dove deeper into the story.

We have a solid six months to make 2016 the year of Final Fantasy XV, so we hope you’re just as excited for Final Fantasy XV as we are!

Now more than ever, please be excited.

What were you most surprised by?

  • ….. I don’t understand… with this games budget they have a hard time putting together a trailer that wasn’t a 13 year old playing with Final Cut for the first time? Talk about bad tone changes and music choices o.o.

  • This entire blog post should have simply read:

    HEY SCALPERS, HAVE WE GOT A MONEY MAKING OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU!!!

    I loved the Platinum Demo but I have a question regarding the Carbuncle DLC. Since I pre-ordered FF XV on the PS Store, do I still get the Carbuncle DLC after beating the demo and not ordering through the demo? I’ve beaten the demo 2 or 3 times.

    • I imagine the trigger that unlocks the DLC for you upon completing the demo is registered to your PSN account like any DLC would be.

    • PenguinActual

      +Piccolo113 I hope so. Carbuncle is just simply too cute to pass up.

  • Delux edition will be for USA only? Can’t find it on any Europe store. Also I would love some FFXV and KH avatars and themes for PS4 some time in the future. Thank you for working hard on this one!!

    I almost teared up watching the event… I’ve openly loved Final Fantasy since the first installment on NES… for the past few years I grew to accept that FF was a thing from my past… now, watching the trailer, I’m ready to come home. I’m ready to return to the franchise that made me a hardcore RPG fan!

  • Hi:
    Japanese audio with English subtitles… THANKS A LOT!

  • A bit annoyed to find that the collector’s edition sold out so quickly. Only to find on eBay, Amazon etc. So many went bought it and now selling for 2 to 3 times the price. No ways I’m paying 500 to 600 euros.

  • Can’t wait to play the full game it looks awesome and well worth the long wait

  • Brilliant can’t wait to play full game
