Final Fantasy XV debuts new “Omen” CGI trailer By Erren Van Duine on October 27, 2016 at 10:00 AM

Square Enix has revealed an all-new trailer for Final Fantasy XV featuring new CG footage from Digic Pictures, who worked on Kingsglaive. Titled “Omen,” the trailer was created to give fans a better understanding of what the game is about.

In the video, Noctis navigates a rapidly shifting world, endless waves of enemies, a gradual loss of abilities, and a madness that brings harm to his beloved fiancée. Inspired by the world and story of Final Fantasy XV, the trailer depicts a nightmarish “omen” for Noctis’ father King Regis—a catastrophic future that must be avoided.

    holy shit…

  • Somnus92

    Great trailer.

  • •december

    Um…

  • Randy

    … Too many bromance all this year and this trailer come. I don’t know what to say about the theme… So deep, dark and serious. Just like what this game is supposed to be.

  • Frederick Badguy

    In good brazilian “PUTA MERDA!”
    Now I see the badass Noctis of Versus XIII!! I can’t wait to play!!

  • Artemis_Polara

    Nice, definitely a good hype fix. Now back to my media blackout till release.

  • Adam Hedquist

    Great trailer!

  • Frederick Badguy

    Regis ask for forgive him?? Humm… I smell a huge and grotestic plot twist.
    And… I think Noct, and some part of history will be manipulated. For who?? Ardyn or the Ancient Kings of Lucis…

    FUCK!! I suffer from anxiety issues Square Enix !! More consideration with me! hahahahaha

  • •december

    Essentially this only one more month to go!

  • Morgan

    If I get any more hyped than I am right now, I’m going to explode. This is exactly the type of trailer I was hoping they would release.

  • Mina-P

    HOLY GOD JESUS DADDY *__________________* FDJka;fjd a The best FF trailer since like FOREVER! Even surpassed the FF7 Remake Trailer for me ooooooh my gaaaaaaaah!!!

    Ahem…. so my first thoughts are 1.) Luna gun die 2.) Wow looks like they kept some of the Stella VERSUS Noctis 😛 stuff in! aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand 3.) Shirtless Noctis at last!! Plz make this DLC square! Also I’ll be in my bunk for a few hours now

  • Mina-P

    The only way someone can not like that is if they literally have no soul or have never liked Final Fantasy… or are a bitter ass cynical edgelord

  • D.3ND

    There’s a poster in the train screenshot that says “Gone Gold”. XD

  • NoctisStrife87

    Yeah! Acho que fica melhor um: “PUTA QUE PARIU!!!!!”
    Man FFXV Tabata is already one of my favorite directors since Monster Rancher 2, and he’s been doing a lot of great jobs, and XV have a better plot and ending than Crisis Core, which is one of the most emotional i ever played.

  • Mina-P

    wats that mean? some latin girl called me a puta once

  • Daniel Masterson

    Holy shit that trailer was amazing! one more month!!

  • Daniel Masterson

    I mean considering it was King Regis who had this “omen” its basically of things that MIGHT happen and not necessarily things that WILL happen. Cool ass trailer regardless.

  • Noctis is fucking badass. This is almost as good as the original trailer with the 13 swords.

  • •december

    ???: “I have seen many deaths, but now I’m only looking
    forward to one. And then… I can rest.”
    Regis’ voice?: “You will take responsibility you know.”
    ???: “As must we all…”

    WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN

  • •december

    And Jobs for “Business Division 2”
    Lol and also Assasin’s Creed logo at 1:20

  • •december

    Is this the true villain behind FFXV’s voice?
    I REALLY DO HOPE HE HASNT BEEN REVEALED YET!!!!

  • Syul

    This is such a dark, beautiful CGI trailer. It’s definitely going to be one of my favourites, if not my favourite.

    I wasn’t expecting for today’s trailer to be so awesome. I was expecting something cool, but not at this level. It’s really amazing, in every way. The fight between Noctis and Luna is hearbreaking (Noctis shouting, uf) but I love when tragedy strikes in a story, and it’s such a back to the past that it’s impossible for me to not love it.

    I find very interesting how the symbology goes in the trailer, with Noctis losing its powers for example (and now that I think of it, Noctis chasing the white dog and how oniric the world seems is a bit like Alice-like). The aesthetic of a dream becoming nightmare for the trailer is just 10/10. The dream/nightmare thing is a theme I like a lot, and I think they did a really good job with it. And the music… Awesome music piece.

    And Regis seems to know something huge, given the conversation he holds with that not known character…

    Oh boy, I can’t wait to see how the story unfolds, truly.

    A shame that I’ll have to wait until nearly the end of December to be able to play :/ 1 month that I’ll be trying to avoid spoilers… Wish me luck… xD

  • Riku from KH games sees “dark Noctis”…
    Riku: that’s my boy.
    Its not really a spoiler just a ref that the path to victory will leave good and bad blood on their hands.

  • Nick Greeley

    That completely blows the 2006 premiere out of the water.

    -Sexy CGI Noctis
    -SHIRTLESS SEXY CGI NOCTIS
    -Kingsglaive-tier animation
    -Excellent foreshadowing
    -SHIRTLESS SEXY CGI NOCTIS

  • Xervath

    That was a really nice trailer. It showed aspects we can expect in the game, without spoiling anything. Love the “seamless transitions” Noctis is going through the macabre “am I going insane” moments were really subtle and therefor good.

    Rating: Dropkick/10

  • A few hours?! That’s a lot of jerking off.

  • Maybe its “sorry I put the weight of the world on your shoulders.”

  • ‘Enough said.

  • Could use a little 13 swords action tho.

  • Its the voice that Noctis said “who are you ” to way back in that old versus trailer with Stella.

  • That could be bad. We don’t need a Zeromus or Necron who pops up for the end of the game and is barely explained or flushed out.

  • If there’s a part when you have to help noctis keep his sanity that would be great.

  • The biggest idea I got from it was Noctis was slowly drowning in power to the point he couldn’t tell friend from foe. He was trying to get stronger to do a job but ended up killing good people in the process.

  • Assassins creed? Does that mean ubisoft got in on helping Square.

  • Frederick Badguy

    I agreed.
    Well… everyone knows that Ardyn it’s a fucking villain, but I think that he has some… humm… “relations” with Lucis leneage.
    Evem Ravus lost his impact, I believe that after him, Ardyn and Iedolas, there some other “secret” character which has not yet been revealed.

    Look to older years, SE reveals everything of XIII-2 in trailers. It will not be an idiot to do it all over again. And Tabata not appear to be incompetent as Toriyama.

    COME TO ME PLOT TWIST!! JUST COME TO ME!!! S2

  • Frederick Badguy

    Sorry!!! Sorry!!! Really!!!

    Fault that the Brazil is evil spoken around the world.

    I’m so sorry, a lot of women here is stupid. But do not take to the letter! This unfortunately means there “slut” …

    Orgh !! Brazil somehow deserves the fame that has !! I have to go here! Even though I was born ¬¬

  • Frederick Badguy

    Mano não me fale do Crisis Core!! Chorei sangue!!! kkk
    (Dude, don’t mention Crisis Core!! I’ve cried blood!!! hahaha)

    Zack Fair and Balthier >>>>>>>>>>> All FF characters

  • stevenm281

    Will the TGS trailer which was shown in French this morning will be available in English soon?

  • I woulve made this the chapter 0. But didn’t they say there barely any CGI cut scenes. That the whole game is never gonna take a theatrical movie look like this? That’s a shame. Sometimes you just wanna see things play out like they did here.

  • Syul

    That’s an interesting theory indeed. You get my +1, sir.

  • Xervath

    Oh that would be pretty neat, yeah!
    Here’s to hoping!

  • Yeah sometimes power to stop an enemy can be too much to handle and it drives you mad. Plus the sacrifices to get that power can drive you crazy too.

  • XenoSilvano

    fleshed-out

  • Likely there is a plot twist. No doubt. Iedola and Ravus are too straightforward. There’s something else behind the scenes. Ardyn and Gentiana maybe be spirits and they’re manipulating everyone. What would be crazy is if they’re not evil. Just they don’t think mankind can be left to their own devices.

  • Noneofyourbusiness

    “Puta” means “prostitute”. Like in Gulliver’s Travels, the flying city of Laputa literally means “the whore”. Because the author was a satirist. Hayao Miyazaki didn’t know that when he named the flying city in Castle in the Sky after it.

  • Mina-P

    Ew, excuse me sir I did not mean that to say I would be jerking off….

    ………I meant flicking the bean ok >.> And I’m exageratting (batteries won’t last that long anyways, orz)

  • Mina-P

    lol i figured; it’s ok I’m not bothered girls call each other sluts all the time just when they are pissed at them. I’m white and I had no clue, I thought it must be something bad from their tone though.

  • Mina-P

    This deserves to be the opening. An FF game without insane CG movies sprinkled throughout is like a pizza without cheese :/

  • Syul

    Agreed with that xD

  • XenoSilvano

    are you kidding

  • Yuntu

    I doubt they gonna do that here.

  • XenoSilvano

    I think the Portuguese ‘puta merda!’ was adapted from the Spanish term ‘puta madre!’ which is like the saying ‘holy shit!’ in English

  • Me too. But plot holes happen when material changes hands too much and stuff gets cut for time.

  • Amen! *applause*

  • …..oh….you’re a woman…..well then….carry on.

  • I don’t like saying fleshed out cuz it reminds me of Fleshlight vibrators. Smh

  • Then again. What if the dark side of the story is Noctis losing the fight for his sanity.

  • Invictus

    I’d rather have Noctis die than Luna.

    *says the fanboy in me crushing over Luna 🙁

  • Frederick Badguy

    Dear “Maverick Destroyer”, I was commenting exactly this in IGN BR. A guy proposed a very good theory: that Luna represents light and Noctis darkness, and Gladio, Ignis and prompto are not really “friends” of it, but guardians if he corrupted (as seen in the trailer) by fault of their trauma in childhood (mother’s death, attempted murder by that Lamia, the loss of his kingdom … his father) doing everything to prevent him from committing what was detailed in this new video.

    It is interesting to see that instead of your eyes become orange, instead reds. Is something bigger?? The way is wait … and hopefully the theory of this subject is correct, ’cause I enjoyed!

  • Invictus

    HAHA! Sorry man, I laughed so hard at this

  • Frederick Badguy

    Dude, “puta” here don’t necessary means “prostitute”. Means like people who have a boyfriend/girlfriend or some fixed relationship, but stay “rubbing” in others. It is more like a flighty and characterless person.

    The problem is that here (Unfortunately), this curse was unexceptional, so generally speaking that even their own family, and when they leave here (Brazil), are defecating in the mouth, called anyone like that.

    A curse to match “whore” here, would be “Rapariga”, which just means “girl” in Portugal. And then would be REALLY a pain in the ass to hear a curse these.

    Mina-P. Sorry, the fault of the one, my country is super evil seen in the world … and rightly so … unfortunately.

  • Zach Hagler

    That part where Noctis was standing over Luna’s dead body made me think back to those old Versus XIII days where it showed that him and Stella were about to fight each other. Not gonna make any assumptions here, but perhaps some elements of that still exist even though the entire premise of that has changed along with Stella’s removal……..Even parts of Kingsglaive seemed to suggest that Luna was fated to die at some point. Oh well, can’t wait to see how it all plays out.

  • Frederick Badguy

    Well… From what I know, fights and abuse in US are even more fierce than here in Brazil. I do not know (laughs) but we always see stereotypical things from another country. For me, the US should look like as in the film Drillbit Taylor hahaha

    Oh how I laugh in this movie! Damn you Owen hahaha

  • Adam Hedquist

    I get the feeling that the spirit of Versus XIII lives on in XV thanks to this trailer and makes me much more optimistic for the story. But it also makes me more annoyed at Kingsglaive which was a disappointment. It was a spectacle sure, but as a movie it wasn’t very good. I believe that if the movie was about noctis and his friends and their struggle against the invasion it would’ve been a much better film. They could’ve kept the kingsglaive around but to focus on them so much was a mistake as they were so uninteresting. The only interesting characters were Regis, Luna, Nyx and maybe Glauca and Ravus. But the main character should’ve been Noctis. I wanted to see Noctis and his friends go through that tragedy together, fighting together, almost dying, strenghten their bond and even our bond and emotions to them before the game. Noctis could have seen his father die himself instead of learning about it over the phone. I wish they’d kept more of the ideas from Versus (I’m only talking about the invasion IMA). I’m such a huge XV fan but man the movie was such a let down. Hopefully the story will be so good that I’ll stop thinking about what could’ve been.

  • Xervath

    Also good.
    I personally prefer endings that are in the ‘tragedy’ department, as sadness sticks more with people than something that’s “happily ever after” (the death of a much-loved character always shakes a whole community, as a point of reference)
    I hope to see a good bit of grittiness.

  • •december

    While I do agree,
    They said it was a team-creation with a partner *INSPIRED*
    by Final Fantasy XV, and to put this into the game after the game
    is finished (gone gold) is unfortunately impossible.
    In saying that, we know this game has some hell of a story!!!!!

  • NoctLightCloud

    Such a beautiful, magical, mysterious and exciting trailer. I think I’ve never seen a better game trailer in my entire life. This is on a master-level, so many symbols and interesting details. Very unexpected and creative. Excellent work, Square Enix! Chapeau☆

  • •december

    Someone replied to my comment on youtube
    aaaaaand, I’m fucking done with life.

    They said King Regis is talking to the crystal at the end of the video
    and this just blew my fucking mind, it all makes sense. Just…fucking… incredible.

  • stevenm281

    So… am I to understand that Noctis kills Luna?

    This is sick….

  • BLUBBER

    this -may- happen, as it is an “omen” trailer

  • stevenm281

    I’m hyped and so nervous now, I don’t want her to die…

  • •december

    Also just to point out, 1:10 That desert is in fact Altissia.
    The arch/wall at 1:15 and the boats confirms its in fact Altissia buried in sand

  • BLUBBER

    what i think now is my theory that this is the “omen” of king regis… if noctis went alone on his journey and may be why he send him with Gladiolus etc. instead. WHo knows.

  • Noneofyourbusiness

    No, it’s true.

  • Noneofyourbusiness

    Well, that’s how Jonathan Swift was using it, so that’s how I know about it.

  • MULTIPLE JELLYBEAN

    this is spooky as helll i love it

  • 4FFAN

    That was greaaat!! I’m guessing the Stella vs Noctis concept still survives!

  • Paulinho

    this is exactly what would happen if noctis went alone in his journey, the gas station is exactly the one where he finds ardyn before going to titan, so this was the future that would happen if noctis didnr had his friend with him

  • 4FFAN

    He doesn’t find Ardyn in a gas station though…

  • Andrew Nguyen

    He’s trying to prevent the chaos future

  • XenoSilvano

    ah~hha

  • 4FFAN

    I have no idea what you’re talking about ^^Is this a Final Fantasy Peasant theory? I don’t really trust his stuff…

  • Omegataco

    Read the video description

  • Justice V

    Never even thought of the possibility that he was talking to someone other than the crystal. I wonder who else coulda been in there with him.

  • Justice V

    If they just recently went gold within the past week or two then they’ve had plenty of time to put this in. While I doubt it’ll be actually in the story portion of the game this or something similar would be very in SE’s style of a dream sequence at the begining of their games. Only issue with this one is there’s more dialogue than usual. If anything on the title screen it could be under bonus/extras.

  • Justice V

    Yep. Watching it made me feel like how a lot of games have random cinematics that play on a sporatic loop at/before the title screen. (Every KH game for example or 3rd Birthday, FFXIII, Crisis Core, Mega Man X7 heh).

  • Justice V

    Would be awesome if one of the main villains turned out to be Noct like in Xenogears heh.

  • Justice V

    Could be like Sephiroth. Start the game thinking Shinra is the big bad, find the leader of the big bad corps killed by the actual big bad then story shifts in a completely different direction.

  • I want Noctis to live thru this complete his task. But I don’t pretend to think there won’t be dark events like cast members death leading up to this. He’s going up against a tyrant, spirits, and gods. I highly doubt everyone survives this. And even if they stop the one pulling the strings. I bet the world may end up in bad shape from it. Like they were the one maintaining what little good was in the world.

  • I forget sometimes that women masturbate. It never really comes to mind outside of daydreams or porn. So it seems unreal. Like the holy grail.

  • Might be on to something there. It’d be crazy if like in the Omen trailer Noctis thinks he’s chasing Luna to save her or be with her romantically. But he’s really being manipulated, and drawn to her to kill her. Maybe due to Ardyn’s influence. It’s kinda like Cloud chasing Sephiroth/Jenova. He thought he was trying to catch Sephiroth. But really he was drawn to the Reunion.

  • eijin_kiver

    I think prophecy of genesis painting will be truth.

  • •december

    Maybe kings of the Lucii in his head??

  • •december

    Me too

  • •december

    I was thinking this too,
    But, then again, the true antagonist could be
    hiding in plaint sight, i’m so highly intrigued rn…

  • •december

    Ardyn is at the gas station in footage,
    The guy who brought this up is right
    But i think the first time we see Ardyn is at the port

  • Paulinho

    yeahh in one of the previews it shows they find him again, not the first time in a gas station, the same as this one
    if you dont want gameplay spoilers dont watch the whole video
    https://youtu.be/oQHXHe-hoaM?t=40m43s

    i believe it means that if he found ardyn by himself, he would have drop into darkness

  • Noctis

    Damn this trailer is so badass!!!

  • XenoSilvano

    ya see!

  • XenoSilvano

    What the heck is with those dogs(!), for non-humans they have been shown far too prominently throughout all of the media that has been released

  • NoctisStrife87

    Man i really think that the Crystal may create another Noctis or Regis. Or something like Xenogears(that have some of the greatest plot in rpgs ever, in my opinion).

  • NoctisStrife87

    Well after studying some writing techniques i learned that the power of polarization is one of the strongest. Good and Evil, Man and Woman, light and dark. I always thought that this game would be this but the opposite. Darkness vs Light to maintain the balance and with this conflict put vs Chaos, or Real Evil within the game.

  • They deserve to die. Iedola runs around invading people nonstop. And so its only fair he get killed once and for all.

  • If theres a point where he turns dark. But turns back to good. Fine. But don’t make him evil the whole time.

  • Mina-P

    I looooove that kinda thing! True story in high school I hooked up my VCR to record off my playstation 1 & 2 and had a tape full of game/anime openings to leave on while I did homework. Dat megaman X dub tho D:

  • SOMEONEWHOSDISSAPOINTED

    This ”darkness” isnt close to what Versus portrayed in its days

  • Artemis_Polara

    I’d say the reverse. Not one trailer from Versus had this sort of darkness to it. Cite one scene from those trailers that was darker than this one? Please tell me. I’ve seen them all.

  • SOMEONEWHOSDISSAPOINTED

    The format in which this trailer was presented was like a conjunction of several scenes, a transition from one place to another, the biggest factor that contributes to this ”darkness’ its its somber music, if we take that away we’ll have the following scenarios: Noctis in a car crash, Noctis fighting several soldiers and beasts, a possessed Noctis fighting Stella and a dog betraying Noctis.

    Lets say Versus would’ve had a trailer with a sequence of scenes like this Omen trailer, it would’ve had:

    First of all the Somnus and Omnis Lacrima tracks, which are equally somber (or a bit more, since they don’t require lyrics to imply tragedy), it would’ve had a cold-blooded Noctis slaughtering several soldiers (in Omen hes not killing them, just knocking them out, also they’re robotic in the game), confronting the Behemoth, it would’ve had Noctis and Stella stating that their powers came from near death and that they function at the cost of someone’s life, also they see expiring souls, it would’ve had a conscient Noctis fighting Stella to the death (in Omen hes possessed, when conscient their fight wouldve been much more tragic and star-crossed). People being killed by Niflheim soldiers that same night, too.

    It would’ve had Noctis confronting Ravus point-blank, Iedolas confronting Noctis’ father at point blank too, and such.

    The Omen trailer was indeed helped by its downbeat music to build up the darkness, that mustn’t distract people too much from what it would’ve implied, Versus themes were much more brutal, tragic and dark than this indeedly dark, but inferior presentation.

  • Artemis_Polara

    I’m still not quite agreeing here. You’re throwing speculation about how Versus would’ve done things. In terms of music, I’ll grant Somnus is more somber than the song used in this trailer but it wouldn’t fit this trailer either. Also while the soldiers are robots, the trailer shows them acting like people so I’d say it’s more representing the whole world being against him.
    Also Versus never really did much with Noctis vs Stella. It just showed them draw weapons and nothing more. This one shows Noctis brutally beating Luna down. Also Noctis still has that power to see deaths as far as I know.
    The first two Versus trailers (which honestly just feel like cuts of the same trailer) just show Noctis sitting on a chair then walking out to slaughter some soldiers.
    Trailer 3 has the same fight with some shots of Stella confronting Noctis, some shots of him with his friends in the city, some problems going down at the citadel, and his dad in a meeting.
    Trailer 4 is the discussion between Noctis and Stella to show their personalities.
    -I’m not counting that brief clip of gameplay-
    Trailer 5 (Final full trailer before XV) Starts with clips from trailer 4, Regis saying someone isn’t worthy to be King (Likely the dude from the first XV trailer whom was likely cut), then going through the invasion of Insomnia and some shots of the world exploration and random encounters. Ending with Noctis declaring vengeance.
    Those are honestly a bit less gritty in retrospect. It feels more stylized and tame compared to the Omen trailer (Which fit the Shakespearean theme they set at the time). Honestly though the Omen trailer feels like a whirlwind leading into despair. It starts with Noctis without his friends, transitions a few times but shows Insomnia’s destruction in the distance so he’s lost his friends. The Regalia crashes so he loses his connection to his father. The dog guiding him down the wrong path and he loses his powers as he goes. When he’s fighting Luna, she’s using barriers so she’s likely using the ring against him so he never got that. And he kills her before realizing he fucked everything and thus hit absolute despair. Of course it ends with his dad showing it was a vision of what could be. Obviously showing that Noctis can’t do this alone and the importance of brotherhood and them keeping him on the right path.
    So yeah, don’t speculate what a Versus trailer would’ve done. Let’s stick to what is actually out there.

  • Justice V

    Sounded way more demonic than they did in kingsglaive. I mean that could be how they sound in game, but would be a weird change. We’ll see in a month heh.

  • 4FFAN

    Oh yeah when he’s on the side like that I remember. But it wasn’t the first time. He first met Ardyn in Galdin Quay and then they meet him again in Lestallum and he proposes to take them to the Disc where Titan is. That’s probablly the third time they meet as he is making the same proposition.

  • 4FFAN

    The description says Regis is trying to prevent a catastrophic future. I thought Andrew was refering to theories about the existence of a parallel dimension within FFXV known as the Chaos Realm. Misunderstanding.

  • •december

    I absolutely loved Omen if they haven’t put any CGI rendered graphics in the game now I’ll be monumentally annoyed, but heck who knows. What we’ve seen looks gorgeous no CGI, it could be better

  • Paulinho

    well i never said it was the first time 😛 only that it looks like the spot where they find him before goingo to titan on that car chase.

  • Justice V

    We’ve seen one cg cutscene so far. There are likely a couple more throughout, but wouldn’t expect nearly as many as x-13 have had considering tabata said there wouldn’t be heh.

  • •december

    OMG Really? Is that scene with King Regis and Noctis and the gang actually going to be in the game? It looked kinda dull cause it had too much light, is that the CGI cut scene you were talking about?

  • •december

    I’m not gonna bother with the Versus XIII fanboy.
    We know we’re right Artemis, it’s clear Square Enix
    are hiding the dark part of the story: Plague of Stars, Nights getting longer,
    main villain of FFXV from us, for obvious reasons!
    Still hyped.

  • Artemis_Polara

    Interesting side detail I’ll throw at you then.
    This trailer actually sent me into a state of depression for a few days because of how dark it was. (I have a thing where I “absorb” the emotions of things I watch or people I’m with) (Not that it was bad, it did it’s job damn well)
    Anyway not a single versus trailer ever did that to me.

  • Justice V

    Yeah the one on the steps? Apparently that’s the very beginning of the game, think it comes after the Ch. 0 stuff.

  • •december

    Deep, right in the feels, bro.
    It’s encapsulating,
    Probably take the actual Final Fantasy XV title in small doses?

  • •december

    Ohhhh, yeah I remembered correctly,
    I’m hoping it’s rendered a hell of a lot better though
    it looked out of place, graphics wise lol.

  • Justice V

    I doubt it will look much different, though it will definitely look better on home ps4’s and tv’s rather than streamed on youtube heh.

  • Artemis_Polara

    Hellz no, I’ve waited 10 years. I’m going to play every bit of it I can.

  • Omegataco

    *This “darkness” isn’t close to what I synthesized in my head back in the Versus days.

  • SOMEONEWHOSDISSAPOINTED

    Every ”darkness” a trailer or any sequence portrays is synthesized in our heads, since everyone senses things differently, in the Omen trailer, its darkness was mostly caused by its music, but without it its just Noctis battling out soldiers and monsters, and being betrayed by a dog..

    In all Versus trailers shall you take out the ”Somnus” song, the game had still a gothic atmosphere and aesthetic, Noctis had a cold expression and slaughtering real people (in XV they’re robots and not real people), he had to face Stella, who was confirmed going to be a love interest for Noctis, to the death consciously (in Omen hes possesed) which makes it all the more tragic, hes also slaughtering monsters..

    And hey, at least everything shown in every Versus trailer was going to be in the actual game and not a sappy vision of something that could’ve happened

  • stevenm281

    Nomura confirmed times and times again that no love story was to be in Versus XIII, why do everyone keep saying Stella was a love interest?

    They were childhood friends now enemies.

  • SOMEONEWHOSDISSAPOINTED

    Well that was even better and less generic, those childhood friends torn enemies are always ALWAYS between people of the same sex, not only was it a step forward for FF female characters, but it contributed to the tragedy of the game

    In XV Luna is gonna be a damsel in distress (see Kingsglaive) how has this ”inner strength” bullshit, but cannot defend herself, and gonna be the ”woman who leads hero to his destiny” overplayed bullshit

    Fuck Tabata
