Final Fantasy XV prologue novel “Parting Ways” released By Erren Van Duine on November 30, 2016 at 10:31 AM

Square Enix has released a new web novel titled: Final Fantasy XV Prologue Parting Ways. The novel, available as a free download, features a look behind the scenes at what Noctis and his friends were doing during the events of Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV before heading to the start of the game proper.

The novel joins a host of other external media for Final Fantasy XV including Kingsglaive, the companion Brotherhood anime and two mobile games. Final Fantasy XV is now available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

    Lol “novel”. More like a script, maybe play. ^^”

  • XV is a fun game but not 9 year long wait fun

    Seems to be translations of the Drama CD released in Japan.
    SCENE 7 – Crownsguard is a snippet they previewed of the Drama CD in the Sept 30 ATR.

    Would’ve preferred it if they made it into a brotherhood episode.

  • Starlord

    How long a game has been in development, shouldn’t dictate how fun a game is. Rather shouldn’t be used as some sort of gauger.

  • NoctLightCloud

    I’m enjoying the game a lot. The best part is the STORY.

  • I’m just saying its good but not great. I feel like I’m playing a long demo.

  • Yuntu

    well not the games fault SE was stupid last generation

  • 4FFAN

    Really? I thought the story wasn’t well executed although the concepts are suuuuuper interesting. I just feel like it honestly would’ve been better to spread the story across multiple games.

  • Don’t get me wrong, I’m having fun. But I just hope they bring back more limit breaks, and more magic like Haste and Curaga and Shell or Protect. And more tactical stuff like have a character tap in roles and classes as their skill tree.
    This game just seems to be mostly about weapons and banter and drive around.

  • NoctLightCloud

    Idk it’s just my feeling. I think the anime, movie and game altogether make a very intetesting story.

    Having alot of fun with the game, amazing world. However, really really dissapointed in the story so far. Very messy and the cutscenes rarely have any background noise which makes it feel really quiet and unnatural. Also very weird pacing and cutscene directing. Hope it gets better the further I get into the story.

  • Ray Muñoz

    Wish I felt the same way. Huge disappointment to me story wise.

  • hahah same… ;_;

  • Dami Fatale

    This is the best Final Fantasy I’ve ever played.

  • NoctLightCloud

    Yeah it’s a really good game. May I ask which ones you’ve played?^^

  • 4FFAN

    All together? Agreed. But the game by itself, feels incomplete. The story is vague and too many important events happen off screen. The story as a whole is interesting indeed.

  • NoctLightCloud

    I’ve just finished it yesterday and I agree 100% with you!

  • NoctLightCloud

    Ikr! I’ve just finished it yesterday, they’ve cut out A LOT, if not all CGI scenes ever shown in previous trailers. Not even the Dawn trailer….o.O

  • 4FFAN

    It’s really sad because the story has SOOOO much potential! But instead of having the story told to you through cutscenes and stuff, you have to look for it in additional stuff like the guidebook, the anime, the movie…It’s unfortunate. What’s even worse is that they didn’t only cut stuff from Versus XIII, half of the things we saw back in 2014 and 2015 aren’t in the game lol

  • NoctLightCloud

    Ikr! My thoughts exactly! So unfortunate :/

  • •december

    Oh s*** so true what happened to Curaga!
    Protect/Shell was in Kingsglaive movie,
    was expecting it to be in the game, but looking forward to
    the “Update roadmap”/Update patch short & longterm goals to come into place

  • You didn’t even get to use protect of shell when you have the ring and were forced to fight as a mage. They just cut so many corners.

    Honestly FFXV has been brutally underated due to the amount of time and anticipation that grew for an entire decade. To look back at the game in hindsight i see a well crafted tale overall even though they had to drop content, a valiant and bold game inspired to the core plot of FFVI , the hightest rated game in the franchise. FFXV breathes new life to the series by introducing a very memorable antagonist, a heartfelt reflection of Kefka and a job well done in every way , Ardyn Izunia and makes for a solid bad guy compared to antagonists as far as other titles go. So yes the story is from tabatas standpoint of FFVI, so with the sole exception of cut content prior release the story is a classic, and directory correlated to FFVI opera. The soundtrack is just epic, Yoko was by far the best artist to fill the shoes of Nobuo Uematsu. Fun fast paced action based battle system which executed in fine form, magic while present preferred to emphasise the focus on weapons thus decided to have magic system generically simple execution, breaking down spells as crafted magical grenades using the basic elements fire, blizzard, and thunder, they are very potent AoE attacks, upon elements there are Status Effects to craft your spells into , bringing the system of Elemancy. The game was not perfect but lets be honest most of us see the potential the game has to offer, do you really think that it hadnt reached potential, or has exceedingly past the potential and thus we are all whinning over how bad we want more content from a game that you claim to suck, so by that logic if your a straight guy and you got dick in your mouth , you would want more dicks in your mouth. Score- 9/10

    Some of the main story is actually hidden, check the theories online if you want to know more, but honestly I believe they left out a lot because that’s marketing, they want to make DLC’s clearly, and I honestly don’t mind, too early for the game to just finish
