New Altissia footage revealed and more during Final Fantasy XV’s ATR By R. Kane on June 15, 2016 at 3:15 PM

Square Enix kicked off Day 2 of their Final Fantasy XV E3 showings with a Japanese language Active Time Report and a stage presentation by the game’s director Hajime Tabata, who revealed new gameplay sequences of Altissia and the flying “Type-F” Regalia.

Here is a summary of major details revealed in the latest Active Time Report with Tabata and the game’s marketing manager, Akio Ofuji:
• Altissia is the largest city in the game.
• Square Enix hopes to bring the “Trial of Titan” playable demo to Japan for Japanese fans to experience.
• The sidescrolling action brawler revealed in yesterday’s kickoff, A King’s Tale: Final Fantasy XV, will be available in Japan as a bonus for pre-orders made through 7-Eleven. In the United States and Canada, A King’s Tale comes with all pre-orders of the game from Gamestop and EBGames, respectively.
• Details about Final Fantasy XV’s story will begin to be shared at this year’s Gamescom in Cologne, Germany.

In addition, Tabata revealed the first footage of a flying “Type F” Regalia at his Day 2 stage presentation. As mentioned before, late in the game players will be able to transform Regalia, the car used to transport Noctis and his friends, into an airship and fly it across the world. Noctis’ friends will voice complaints if he fails to land the Regalia properly.

Both the Altissia and Type-F Regalia videos have been uploaded to official Square Enix YouTube channels and can be viewed here:

    Really great footage! 🙂 And a smoking volcano in the background?

  • Morgan

    Love the creepy painting. The game seems to have alot of very unique enemies.

  • Benjamin

    If Tabata and co. said that “Altissia is the largest city in the game”, then Insomnia might not be completely explorable (if not explorable at all). 🙁

    Regardless, FFXV is still my most hyped game of this year.

  • Frederick Badguy

    Wat?! they don’t day that will not release another demo after Platinum?!
    Anyway… I want to play this E3 trial today! Please Lord Creator, makes that this demo is already on PSN!!! Ah! Jesus Christ?? It’s time to you make one of yours miracles!! hahahaha

  • I’m gonna explore my dick off. These places are begging to be explored.

  • Octavio Valdez

    Well, we still have other cities to explore, Lestallum, The other city in the green like mountains from the uncovered trailer, the big industrial complex in the rain where the train stops, the big train station from the cat demo. My take on Insomnia is that is not going to be structured as an explorable city but more as a dungeon, I think it is highly possible it is the game’s final dungeon judging by the Afrojack trailer, you probably make your way through the streets until you reach the citadel and fight the final boss or something like that. Also remember that in all FF games the final dungeons is where you find the most badass weapons most of the time. and hey we got a coliseum (Tabata said so in the video)

  • Octavio Valdez

    Im really digging the whole idea of having monster hunts even in the cities

  • Kaizokugami

    About bloody time. Thanks for the info.

  • The Regalia is almost as badass as the Batmobile at this point.

  • highsky00

    The other city you mentioned is Tenebrae

  • I mentioned this on gematsu, but don’t you guys think the waterfalls in Altissia look kinda bad compared to the rest of the visuals (and compared to the visuals of other AAA games)? I noticed in the Platinum demo they look a little bit “jelly” and bland. I mention this because I alway put a lot of attention to how they portray water in games. I hope they upgrade them in the final version. It may be nit picking, but know that I absolutely love everything else!

  • Okay. Respect. I saw black and latino people. I’ll eat my words now. Glad to be wrong.

  • Me too. Reminds me of Rogue Galaxy. How just a factory or prison was like a dungeon. How right outside of a shop you could run into a battle.

  • Aulix Indragonz

    well, it did get wasted by the time we start the game
    so yeah, might not be explorable at all

  • Gail Hays
  • Jesus Christ

    I can’t wait to pee into the water! Wakey wakey Leviathan!

  • Silencieux Trickster

    I don’t know why I imagine Chadarnook appears from that creepy painting

  • JLV

    Agree. But it didn’t trigger me too much. Has anyone forward the question to Tabata? It’s like they didn’t get the water physics right.

  • BLUBBER

    I think its more like the Ragnarok now in FFVIII with these red wings down.

  • Adrian

    The water could’ve been downgraded for the sake of performance. It’s always a bummer when the graphics downgrade, but I’ll take worse graphics over unstable frame rate any day (especially for a fast paced action game).

    Hopefully they’ll eventually make a pc version with sexier water.

  • Adrian

    I really hope he does. That’d be an awesome throwback to FF6.

  • Justice V

    Water is one of the hardest things to get in cg in general but especially in video games. There have been a couple games recently that have done some amazing things with water, but then they aren’t seamless open world games to the same degree as this one. So not sure if it’s because they couldn’t figure out the water physics/mechanics right, or they had to cut it back from what it could be do to engine limitations with everything else they have going on at the same time. Also could be one of the last areas they’re working on polishing up and could be great by release day. We may never know, but we’ll see how it looks once released.

  • Justice V

    Yeah wasn’t expecting to be able to explore toooo much of Insomnia considering the fight that destroyed a lot of it happens early on. Now with Kingsglaive looking to show even more destruction throughout the city too. Even in the old trailers where they were fighting the behemoth in the street it kind of looked like you were being forced a certain path to get either towards a goal or away from the enemy (hard to tell in those old trailers).

  • Justice V

    Yeah I’m really hoping they have a bestiary (pretty sure they will), but also hope it mentions the monsters first appearances like FFI or FFIV and the like since they’re creating new things but also pulling from all the old games as well.

  • Justice V

    Not only a smoking volcano, but a volcano with a bunch of weird growth reaching out of it heh. Also curious what that red pulse shooting out of the tower thing was.

  • Mehmed

    The best Final Fantasy yet, i think.
    But… i would like the original Versus to be made, even if just as a CGI movie…
    The one we saw between 2006-2008.

  • Allan

    Yeah, this can’t be unseen actually haha. I was ok with the water as it was in Episode Duscae, and even in those pictures the water looks fine, but that waterfall… They could’ve used some better textures maybe… I don’t understand about gaming development so…

  • Yuntu

    Told ya :p

  • Yuntu

    They said they appear out of thin air … maybe that affects how they look? Outside of that I can only assume Bad texturing.

  • Average Afro

    This is what I liked when I saw it. It makes the towns part of the world, instead of just places you go to to chill out and get more missions. It’s like how Witcher 3 integrated Novigrad into the world.

    I also love how the Hunts look, so much nostalgia from the ridiculous amount of time I spent on hunts in 12.

  • Average Afro

    What is your first sentence?

    They did say that the Platinum Demo would be the last playable demo avaliable to the masses, but not that it’s the last demo, that there will be two to three (IIRC) at shows, this would be the first. I assume footage from that demo will show up eventually.

  • Average Afro

    TBH, apart from the beginning, I was expecting to go back to Insomnia at all, maybe at the very end of the game, but I’m pretty sure we’ll be travelling away from that.

    I have a question, has anyone been able to get a sense of how large Altissia will be? From what we’ve seen you’ll be able to explore around a lot, and it’ll be dense. I’m hoping it’ll be able the same size as Novigrad, with roughly the same amount of density.

  • They did but not all games do this. This need to be the norm.

  • Normafross1
  • Yuntu

    No it doesn`t, but I won`t into this again.

  • If you didn’t want to get into it again you shouldn’t have shown up to say ‘I told you so’.

  • Yuntu

    Well you wouldn’t believe me XV is varied in races. That’s all I was referring to, not the whole discussion.

  • I didn’t believe completely. Wondered about it. Now that we still more of the world being an adult I can admit I was wrong they’re in the game. But I still stand by my views. And if I was right I wouldn’t gloat.

  • That a boss right?

  • Frederick Badguy

    Most likely you will not understand , I wrote it for because of this image: http://memesvault.com/wp-content/uploads/Wat-Meme-Old-Lady-Face-12.png

    Just put “H” after “W” and good laughs xD

    But, anyway, thanks for the info 😉

  • Erebos Tenebris

    I doubt they will mention the games the monsters originally appeared in but I do believe they said a while ago that there would be pretty detailed bestiaries in game.

  • Silencieux Trickster

    Well, Chadarnook is a boss from FF VI. A demon who resided inside the painting of Laksmi. You can google about this guy for more information

  • Silencieux Trickster

    It is 😀

  • I remember the fight but didn’t remember the name.
