Watch: Final Fantasy XV Amazon RoadTrip Trailer

October 25th, 2016 by Natalie


Almost there, not much longer now.

Square Enix has released a new Final Fantasy XV trailer revealing a partnership with Amazon called “Final Fantasy XV Amazon Road Trip”. It’s your chance to explore the world of Eos and earn exclusive in-game DLC. In order to participate, you have to pre-order the game through Amazon to receive a Golden Chocobo skin for the Regalia.

Starting November 1, you can go to the Final Fantasy XV Amazon Road Trip website and conquer various trials throughout the following three weeks with Noctis and his group of friends. These trials will consist of various challenges ranging from battling hordes of enemies, fishing a meal, and fighting some mighty bosses. The more challenges you complete, the closer you can get to earning more DLC.

The DLC won’t be limited to just a car skin; you’ll be able to get items such as the iconic Blazefire Saber weapon from Final Fantasy XIII, the Mage Mashers weapon from Final Fantasy IX, and even the Gae Bolg from Final Fantasy XIV. You’ll also be able to get the Travel Pack, Camera Kit, and Gourmand Set.

If you complete the challenges presented to you throughout all three weeks, you will be rewarded with a digital mini-version of the official Final Fantasy XV strategy guide. You will be able to collect all of the DLC you earned upon your purchase of Final Fantasy XV when it releases on November 29 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.


The past few years have brought many Final Fantasy fans numerous love letters to the almost 30-year old franchise thanks to titles like Final Fantasy Record Keeper, Mobius Final Fantasy, and Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy. As we wind closer to the release of Final Fantasy XV, Square Enix has one more of these love letters to release to fans before they experience the latest installment of the franchise. World of Final Fantasy is a vibrant and adorable title that harkens back to the past of Final Fantasy with gameplay system and chibi-renditions of popular characters from various games in the franchise.

Polygon has published a video highlighting Final Fantasy XV’s first fifteen hours of gameplay, avoiding spoilers as much as possible. Polygon’s impressions consist of positive remarks about the game’s overall quality, claiming the game has proven itself to diminish various concerns regarding player expectations of the newest mainline title.

GameSpot on the other hand has published a similar video commenting on the game’s story, open-world environment, and combat.


In the third instalment of the ‘FINAL FANTASY XV: The English Voice Cast” series, the voice actors for the main characters reflect on what Final Fantasy means to them, what their favourite games in the series are, and more.
Ray Chase, voice of Noctis Lucis Caelum, proudly announces his favourite games in the series;

“My favourite Final Fantasy is a bit controversial. I enjoyed V, and I enjoyed VIII. Go ahead, take me on.”

He also revealed that, much like the characters in-game, the voice actors were able to be compatible, friend-wise.


Adam Croasdell, who voices Ignis Scientia, says the epic scale of Final Fantasy XV appeals to him;

“…it’s been a thrill to be a part of it and to discover and to sort of understand what it’s like creating the world of it”.

Darin De Paul reveals in the video that it was on his third callback for Ardyn Izunia that the auditions were for a Final Fantasy game;

“I didn’t know until I think my third callback that this was Final Fantasy, and I was just like ‘what!?'”

Amy Shiels, voice of Lunafreya Nox Fleuret, reflects on the first time it felt real when working on the game.

“My favourite, that sticks out to me, is one of the days an actor had brought in a magazine that had Final Fantasy XV on the front of it. It was the first time we saw something that was tangible, that we were thinking ‘This is real! It’s actually happening! We are not just in these little studios! It’s happening outside, guys!'”


Robbie Daymond, voice of Prompto Argentum, is a long-time Final Fantasy fan. He recalls fond memories of blowing on a Final Fantasy NES cartridge to get it to work.

What appeals to me most about Final Fantasy XV is the themes that are involved, and I think that is a huge part of Final Fantasy games.

Robbie explained his sentiments on these themes;

For me, this one is about a coming of age story wrapped up in fealty and brotherly love. That idea of brotherly love is something that the world could use a little bit of now.


Matthew Mercer, voice of Cor Leonis, gave his own interpretation of the themes of Final Fantasy XV.

Noctis’ journey and his path with his friends is one of loss, of acceptance, that the world is full of darkness, the world is full of evil. Even contesting with your own internal struggles, it’s coming from that naïve, youthful frustration, that things in the world are how they should be and then deciding to accept responsibility to make the changes to form the world to that vision of what you want it to be.

You can watch the full video below, which features more interviews with the cast of Final Fantasy XV.

Final Fantasy XV will launch on Playstation 4 and Xbox One on November 29th 2016.
