Final Fantasy XV Comes to Tokyo Game Show

August 30th, 2013 by Tony Garsow

Revealed at Sony’s E3 2013 Press Conference, Final Fantasy XV will mark the first next-generation Final Fantasy on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Previously known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII, the game was announced back in 2006, with only breadcrumbs of development details that accompanied each CG trailer. Today we learn, rather unsurprisingly, that the game will be shown at this year’s Tokyo Game Show — which takes place between September 19th and the 22nd in Japan.

Square Enix will also be bringing along Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, and Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster. Other games include Kingdom Hearts III, Drag-On Dragoon 3 (Drakengard 3), and Dragon Quest X Online.

You can view Square Enix (and other companies’) TGS listings here (PDF).

What do you want to see next from the Final Fantasy XV project at Tokyo Game Show? Leave us your thoughts with a comment below!

Thanks: FF-Reunion

    Anything new from that particular game will be more than welcome!

    Anything, anything at all.. A lil crumb is all I need!
    (A new trailer would be like an early xmasgift though) 😉
    *dressphere and dance*

  • Nothing more than another flashy trailer with triumphant music really, with more hints on the flow of gameplay. In fact, nothing like the reveals that have been going on for LR is wanted in my opinion. The fact everyone has “endured” a long wait for the game all this time states, by itself, that not more than a “look we’re working on it” sort of message is needed.

  • alexsam

    @Lilay I would agree with you on that point, but there’s a little difference between Lightning Returns and FF XV. We know all the characters from LR. We know the story (or, at least anyone who was interested enough to play the two previous games knows them). So, for them to reveal new information about the final chapter of a trilogy almost on a weekly basis, is practically like ruining it for us and leaving nothing for us to anticipate when we play it. It won’t be a surprise when we get to Yusnaan to see that everyone there is dumb enough to worship Snow. We won’t be shocked to see Fang and Vanille again. We know all these things now. But, as for XV, we know next to nothing about it, the characters (other than Noctis) don’t mean anything to us and the story as we know it is pretty much “one town attacked another to steal a crystal”. So, yeah a little more insight on it would be great!

  • @alexsam
    Your view is assuredly granted, the dichotomy between a game that is considerably spoiled and a game that is considerably unknown do work to a certain extent. I have to concede there’s a point to the release of information that gives an anticipated game some depth, more than in visuals and audio. As such, I can only render it a more personal view and say that despite that I would like to not see too much a thing in order to get the highest degree of immersion when in touch with the game. But that’s my prerogative and to follow it I would just need to look away from a sense of too much info. Like this, both people like yourself and myself would be “satisfied”.

  • @Lilay Yeah, I totally get where you’re coming from. I still remember the nostalgic memories of having just purchased FF IX after learning from my friend that it had been released. I knew nothing of it other than the information that was given in the instruction booklet that came along with it. Then all of a sudden I lost myself in a magical world for about two and a half weeks! So, in all fairness, I can completely understand someone wanting to have that experience again.

  • @alexsam
    Indeed, that’s a good example.
    But I’d like to add one in favour for some amount of information: the reason I acquired FFX was mostly because I got a hold of a monthly PS2 magazine which contained something like a preview or semi-review of some pages, and it was those several screenshots and captions mixed with some praise of the writer’s that made it so more and more want was built for the game. Such a sentiment is one I perhaps lost to a considerable extent, at least in such a degree, the sort of thing that made me feel so positively anxious about playing a videogame that I could only swell in the imagination of the little I knew, compared to what gorgeous things the game would hold.
    I think the last time I felt so was in regard to Shadow of the Colossus, so, quite a bit ago. Assuredly there have been many games after, but that heavy sentiment, not so much. The factors that created this are perhaps too many to even attempt to tackle.

    So with this I just mean to say that, despite the notion of going into a game quite “blindly”, some information might work as a strong catalyzer for some, and depending on many things, it could work for me too without any sort of expectation on my behalf. Anything can further hook me, I have to suppose.

  • @Lilay Actually, that is exactly how I bought X as well. I remember reading the articles about how it would be “the first ever with voice-acting” and stuff. So much hype. But that’s the difference. I knew quite a lot about X, even in those days from before getting into it. The truth is, that experience I had while playing FF IX is probably once in a lifetime. Because even though I do find myself getting excited to every new FF title they throw at us (yes, I’m a fanboy), nothing will be like that time when I was unsure of what sort of game I was putting into my PSX, that ended up being probably one of the best times I’ve ever had.

    Unfortunately in today’s world, in which we’re surrounded by sources of information and when sometimes we receive it even if we don’t want it, there is no shielding oneself. Some comment, some article in a news feed will eventually ruin it for you. So, in regards to (not just) XV, I would suggest being prepared for major spoilers in the weeks to come. I still hope they leave us wondering until the game’s release but, unfortunately, that is not on Square-Enix’s agenda any longer.

  • @alexsam
    Ah yes, not to delve into ever further sub-subjects but, that’s already a difference. A limpid entry like yours into a game (IX) and one charged with expectation (X) are different enough to be mentioned, I’d say. This is also related to the “spiritual continuity” of FF, for an example regarding XV: something like knowing that classic summons, e.g Bahamut, are a well developed, mechanical and contextual aspect of the game would instantly rise the level of interest further for me, again, this would dwindle the surprise of finding so when playing. These two interchangeable aspects correlate repeatedly.

    However, I can say that I’m not naïve enough to expect that things I’ve felt with past FF entries (or any games) are what I want to project into upcoming titles in hopes of feeling it again. When put like this, there’s a certain pointlessness to a proper sense of expectation. An expression relating to this, one I see here and there at times, and that perhaps every single one of us knows, is the “I wish I could undo having played this so I could play it all over again as if for the first time”.

    Indeed. Although I have no such concerns since this site is the only one I visit for FF info (implying I could stop any time) and I keep no social networking connections, there’s always a chance that there could be something somewhere that reveals what I don’t want revealed or detailed, but this regards mostly XV and, one can presume, upcoming large FF titles.
    For example, my interest in Bravely Default is growing, but I have no actual “concern” anyone will be spoiling anything, in fact, the spoiling can only be mine; the game itself “targets” another niche. On the other hand, XV wants to be as loud and as attention-gathering as possible and although this could be effected with flashy trailers until its release, I can imagine, like you, it might not be so.
