A new trailer and information on the side-scrolling A King’s Tale: Final Fantasy 15 has been released.
Slated for release digitally with pre-orders of Final Fantasy 15, the game takes place 30 years before the events of the upcoming RPG.
According to Square Enix, the game features a fast-paced combat system with "influences from modern gaming" alongside the retro-style graphics.
Players will traverse three locations included in Final Fantasy 15, and use various melee, magic, summons and companion attacks when doing battle.
Here's a blurb on the storyline:
Restless before bed young Noctis asks his father, King Regis, to tell a fairy tale full of fantasy and adventure instead of just another generic bedtime story. Regis begins with a peaceful day being disrupted when monsters raid the royal capital, Insomnia. Young Regis, joined by Weskham, starts his adventure from the royal capital. Eventually they are joined by friends Cid and Clarus, where they travel to the plains of Duscae only to discover a mysterious cave where their enemy resides. Throughout the tall tale, King Regis and Noctis interject their own commentary, adding depth and perspective to the story itself.
- Deep Combat System – Combos, counters, and Regis’ signature “Warp Strike” combine for lightning fast real-time combat that rewards fast reflexes and smart tactics.
- Magic – Ignite the battlefield, freeze your enemies, or electrify your foes with Fire, Ice, and Lightning magic.
- Companions – Three distinct companions offer unique and new ways to attack as well as tailored super moves that deal massive damage.
- Summons – Call upon epic Astral entities to decimate your foes in jaw-dropping ways.
A King’s Tale: Final Fantasy 15 is a pre-order exclusive at GameStop and EB Games in the US and Canada, respectively.
Final Fantasy 15 will be released on Spetember 30 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
