A New Year’s message from Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata By Erren Van Duine on December 31, 2016 at 7:17 PM

Square Enix is set to ring in the new year with a short message from Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata. In the message, he outlines the various achievements set forth by the FFXV and promises to further support the game well into 2017.

Happy New Year!

In 2016, we were able to deliver Final Fantasy XV to everyone at long last.

We were able to accomplish the goals we set out to achieve, such as subtitles for 12 languages, 4 fully voiced languages, and a global simultaneous release date.

By creating a full CG movie, we provided a new experience of enjoying a movie and a game as a set to the world.

By creating and distributing a cell animation, we were able to realize a new way for everyone to get to know the game characters.

By releasing a mini-game as a mobile app, we were able to bridge the real world to the game world.

We, the FFXV team, were able to achieve these things because of the warm and strong support of our fans.

I have decided that 2017 is a year of giving back to everyone for their kindness.

There are many players enjoying FFXV in various ways, and nothing makes us happier than this.

To provide a long-lasting and even more enjoyable experience with FFXV for everyone, we will continue to update the game and release DLC.

We ask for your continued support for Final Fantasy XV in 2017.

Director, Final Fantasy XV
Hajime Tabata

Square Enix plans on releasing a number of free updates for the game, including additional story sequences, playable characters and difficulty adjustments through a recent roadmap published online. All of this is coming in addition to multiple pieces of paid character and online multiplayer DLC included in the game’s season pass.

    Hmmm…
    Subs for 12 languages – been doing hunts in Altissia and none of Maagho’s lines had English subs in so many interactions, and that’s not the only such case.
    Kingsglaive is … yeah let’s say divisive at best.
    The anime is great, but it has more content to it in that regard than the game does, especially with the “episodes” missing because DLCs are coming soon. (Remember them sitting in a booth in ep1? That never happens in any of the diners in-game, despite almost all the booths being empty… a tiny detail, sure, but would contribute to diversity and a sense of liveliness.)
    The mobile app was region-locked for way too long, and now that it’s not (or not as much anyway), we’re hearing rumours it’s getting shut down.
    …yeah. Here’s to a better 2017. Let’s face it, the game has a lot of shortcomings to be fixed.

    For anyone who didn’t keep up with the anime or Kingsglaive
    prior to the game, my condolences. It was truly an integral part
    of the entire game, but a ton of stuff still unanswered shall be explained soon.
    This is the proof! Happy New Year.

    Looking forward to the future updates. Glad to know they intend to carry on putting more into the game. One of my favourites in a long time. Happy New Year everyone!

    Same! The throne scene killed me. That was on the level of sadness of the ending of X or Crisis Core. I didn’t expect so much sadness.

  • •december

    For me it was tears of joy!
    The feels. Very unexpected…

  • What would you call it then. He had to pass on in order for things to be put to an end. This was supposedly gonna be the same with Versus in a sense but he’s gone and so is stella.

    Now had they kept the FNC mythos he could have just turned to crystal and slept or something. But I mean there is nothing stopping them from using the crystalstasis and saying he actually slept at the end of the first game. They need to be creative about how they could continue the game at this point and not pull an ass-pull like XIII-2 did with Lighting. Otherwise, the game is just done. They can’t continue it after that ending. But they can continue to add in things before it so long as it makes sense.

    You’re right he must have died, but Nyx’s death was ambiguous too. Noctis, he also had a full uniform, him and Lunafreya, as well as clean shave where the world returned to normal (yes we know it’s post-apocalypse world, because the sun rises Hammerhead with its walls and also Insomnia’s wreckage) – Why would he want to be clean shaved if he’s dead? I don’t know, I just have a feeling they didn’t die properly as everyone has mentioned. Or it could be an alternate realm which isn’t fully explained, perhaps the spirit realm.

    Who would’ve built the beautiful flower memorial for King Noctis (CXIV)? Umbra? He’s the only entity remaining (no humans, no birds, or monsters) seen on the planet, but we know he’s a spirit. it was very open-ended and ambiguous and I like that! If he was completely dead, wouldn’t we have seen King Regis Lucis Caelum CXIII too? We only heard Regis’ voice, the only person we know was killed dead. I’m guessing whatever happened to Umbra happened to Noctis and Luna.

    There will be more story to follow, as we have been officially informed. And I don’t really mind if none of it alters the ending we got, it will change my opinion of the follow up to what happened definitely!

  • I also wondered why Regis wasn’t there but I mean idk. Maybe they tried to leave the ending up to the player imagination in a sense.

    I found it heartbreaking to see Noctis die. That was too much for my heart.
