Watch: New A King’s Tale: Final Fantasy XV Footage from GameStop Expo

The GameStop Expo is currently underway at the Anaheim Convention Center. At the event, A King’s Tale: Final Fantasy XV was played on stage and streamed, with new details released. Thanks to Youtuber NovumZero you can view almost 5 minutes of A King’s Tale: Final Fantasy XV footage!

Restless before bed, young Noctis asks his father, King Regis, to tell a fairy tale full of fantasy and adventure instead of just another generic bedtime story. Regis begins with a peaceful day being disrupted when monsters raid the royal capital, Insomnia. Young Regis, joined by Weskham, starts his adventure from the royal capital. Eventually they are joined by friends Cid and Clarus, where they travel to the plains of Duscae only to discover a mysterious cave where their enemy resides. Throughout the tall tale, King Regis and Noctis interject their own commentary, adding depth and perspective to the story itself.

The combat is the standard hack and slash with combos included to spice things up. One of the combos shown was an aerial combo known as Launch Aerial which is activated on Xbox One by pressing XXY. Certain enemies will block and parry a standard attack, so combos are a great way to hit an enemy where it hurts. For example, Master Skeletons can counter quick slashes. To break their guard, King Regis must use Shield Bash before damage can be inflicted.

Strategy is key to winning the battle, as shown with the Bomb enemy. Bombs, when attacked, engorge until they explode and deal substantial damage to the player. In A King’s Tale: Final Fantasy XV, you can throw the bomb into other enemies to damage them. You will also face off against other classic Final Fantasy enemies such as the Cactuar, Flans, and Marlboros.

Apart from combos, the game uses a lot of traditional Final Fantasy elements to defeat hordes of enemies. Summons such as Titan and Leviathan can be used in battle, as well as magic (Fire, Blizzard, Lightning) and companion attacks with Regis’ retinue, Weskham, Cid, and Clarus.

It is established during the stream that the villain of this game is not Sephiroth, who was mentioned as a joke, but that the narration during the game hints at the real villain and long time fans will be able to figure it out. The game is 2 to 5 hours in length and will feature a challenge mode that includes tasks such as “Destroy 30 Bombs in 20 seconds”.

A King’s Tale: Final Fantasy XV is available with all Final Fantasy XV preorders at Gamestop, or from their international branches in other countries, such as EB Games.
