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:
