A round up of information from Final Fantasy XV’s guidebook!

WARNING: THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS FINAL FANTASY XV SPOILERS! READ AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION!

Final Fantasy XV arrived on our door steps last week and it achieved over 5 million shipment and digital sales, however now the dust has settled and there’s a few bits of information that has many people worried. Other than the incredible mixed reception towards the news that Final Fantasy XV will get free content patches, it seems more content was stripped from the game and released in the Final Fantasy XV Collector’s Edition Guidebook by Piggyback Games.

We purchased a copy of the guidebook to review the information included and collate it in one easy to access place.

The first bit of information is related to a “family tree” style document showcasing the relationships between characters in the game. All of this is fairly standard except for the part about Prompto.

family tree

Those who have completed Chapter 13 will remember Prompto telling the boys that he was born in Niflheim however news of his father was not revealed. We now know that his father is Verstael, an engineer for Niflheim and only appeared in one cutscene in Final Fantasy XV. Hopefully this relationship will be explored in Episode Prompto.

Speaking of DLC, Gladio vanished during Chapter 7 for a mysterious reason and returned with a scar. Saori Itamuro had this to say:

Gladio earned his scar protecting the prince from a drunken stranger some two years before the trip. Of course, he could have prevented it by counterattacking the offender, but Gladio would rather take the hit than harm a citizen of the Crown City. He earns another scar during his trip, but that’s a story we’re saving for DLC.

More information that is rarely touched upon in Final Fantasy XV is the history of Eos. There’s mention of Regis and his mates from 30 years prior, however little else is spoken of. The guide contains the history of Eos and touches upon the fall of Solheim, the forging of the Crystal and the Ring of the Lucii, and Regis marrying his childhood friend Aulea.
