The “Dawn” of Final Fantasy XV

Samuel at GameSpew takes a closer look at FFXV's brand new trailer. He writes: "During gamescom 2015 an interview held with Square Enix video game director Hajime Tabata revealed details surrounding Final Fantasy XV along with a tentative bracket for release scheduled sometime before 2017. Elements of the story introduced in the “Dawn” teaser trailer were discussed with a bend towards introducing players new and old to the updated story and ensuring that everyone is on the same level as the game takes its final steps down the road to the full release.

The “Dawn” trailer is set 15 years before the events of the main game and everything shown is taken from in-game footage. King Regis is depicted holding a young Noctis in his arms while he stands in the rain. Of course, it wouldn’t be Final Fantasy if he wasn’t also holding a badass sword point down while three enormous ethereal shapes loomed over the buildings in front of the two of them. It has been confirmed by Tabata that these...

The expression the father's face is so well done!

The music at the end as well. So much build up, I love it!

Irishguy951168d ago

The dad looks too old now I think. And he no longer looks asian

TheOneWhoIsTornApart1168d ago

He was never Asian to begin with dude. I don't know why people keep saying this.

Irishguy951168d ago (Edited 1168d ago )

He looked pretty asian, bone structure in particular. Japanese in particular. Maybe with Filipeno eyes(Cept blue). However, either way, he looked like Noctis dad.

I actually like the new design. But he doesn't look related to the MC

At the very least he should be younger.

To be fair he did have a slight Asian esque to him in the early concepts and closely resembled a Yakuza crime boss at the time...

Noctis however looked 100% asian at his in game engine debut on the PS3

FallenAngel19841168d ago

The dad looks so different from how he looked in the 2013 E3 trailer.

Also I thought all this time that Noctis was in his teens during FFXV. Since this new scene takes place 15 years prior, Noctis is in his early 20s during the entire game.

Still could be a teen. The kid looks like he's maybe 4 but who knows. Not a big difference between 18-19 and 21-22.

NoctisPendragon1168d ago

He is 20-22 according to the demo i think , the game director also hinted about flash-backs ( so maybe we can play small Noctis ) and the young-phase ( so Noctis may be older at the end of the game ) .

I hope we can play King Noctis since it is "the dawn of a new King) as the trailler said .
