Final Fantasy 15 has received official product descriptors on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Japanese product sites.

It follows this fast-paced Final Fantasy 15 trailer.


Both pages describe Square’s new combat mechanic and some plot details. The PS4 site is full of images and details, stating, “The battles featured in Final Fantasy XV have evolved greatly from the previous games of the series, as it’s created as an action game. The game switches seamlessly from the field to battle and the combat situation evolves rapidly. It goes on quickly with a sense of full realism.

“Also, it’s possible to fight not only with the hero Noctis, but also to switch with other characters. Furthermore, it’s also possible to perform a combination attack with a companion while enjoying the dynamic effect.”

“Noctis can fight by making use of a variety of weapons and can move quickly within the areas by attacking enemies with stylish action!, “it states, and adds, “You can fight monsters by cooperating with an ally. The ability to fight in collaboration with unique companions is an important feature of this game.”

Meanwhile, the newly-opened Xbox One Japanese site echoes some of Sony’s details, starting with the combat mechanic again.

“Final Fantasy XV features a high action system unprecedented in the series,” it begins. “By taking advantage of the specs of next generation consoles, characters can move freely across the whole screen. In addition to that, the party battle system is now more advanced, allowing you to enjoy party battle by switching characters more strategically.”

Finally, on hero Noctis himself, the page reads, “As the royal heir of Lucis who has the last crystal in the world, the main character Noctis and his friends will suddenly be involved in the war.”

We’ll have more on Final Fantasy 15 soon. Stay tuned.
