It’s been a long, winding road to completion for the game formerly known as Final Fantasy Versus 13. Originally announced nearly a decade ago as a PlayStation 3 exclusive, the game has gone through many transformations over the years, eventually becoming the next main series FF game, now known as Final Fantasy 15.
Since Final Fantasy 15 was renamed at E3 2013, development on the game has picked up considerably. For the first time since it was originally revealed, there actually feels like there’s an end in sight for the long anticipated title. Square Enix keeps bringing us new tidbits of info at all the big gaming events, building up hype and spreading knowledge about the game, and now we know the next time that we’ll hear more about this long in-development Final Fantasy.
Square Enix plans on hosting one of their Active Time Report events, a video series dedicated to revealing more about Final Fantasy 15, at PAX Prime in Seattle, Washington. The event will take place at the Grand Hyatt Seattle Hotel, and will be led by the game’s director, Hajime Tabata.
Square Enix has already said what Tabata will be discussing in this latest Active Time Report. For one, he will share with the live audience and those watching at home on Twitch some personal stories about the development of Final Fantasy 15. Tabata will also explain some things about the Final Fantasy 15 Gamescom trailer, which should be the meatier part of the presentation.
Those that want to watch the Final Fantasy 15 PAX Prime presentation live will have a chance to do so on Square Enix’s Twitch channel. Just tune in on Saturday, August 29th from 4:30pm to 5:30pm Pacific time to catch the latest on one of gaming’s most anticipated JRPGs.
So, now that we know when to expect and some of what to expect from the next Final Fantasy 15 presentation, what else should Square Enix announce?
For one, we’d like a more concrete release date. If Square Enix won’t commit to a specific day, a less vague release window of 2016 would be nice, so fans could at least anticipate the general time that they can finally play the long-gestating game.
Other areas that the upcoming Active Time Report should focus on include a deeper look at the game’s story, as well as the areas in the game. For the most part, we’ve only really seen the areas from the Final Fantasy 15 demo in any meaningful capacity, and it would be nice to get an idea of what other environments in the game will bring to the table.
What do you want to learn more about in regards to Final Fantasy 15? Will you be watching the presentation come August 29th?
Final Fantasy 15 is expected to release at some point in 2016 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
