Final Fantasy XV gets a release date, demo out now


Also a pinball game?

You've heard (and probably seen) the new Final Fantasy XV anime episode by now, but surely it's the game itself that matters most? Indeed, Square Enix's premiere boy band road trip simulator will be ready for consumption on September 30th, 2016. As is only proper, the company also debuted a new trailer for it, called "Reclaim Your Throne".

That's all a few months away yet, but fans can get a taste of the adventure to come right now, as the free demo of the game has gone live. Titled Platinum Demo: Final Fantasy XV,  the demo covers an original adventure taking place before the game proper, following protagonist Noctis as he pals around in a dream with a friendly Carbuncle. Director Hajime Tabata noted that members of the Kingdom Hearts team at Square Enix contributed to the demo, which would explain the whimsical feel of it.

There's also going to be a spin-off of sorts released for mobile platforms, based on Justice Monsters Five, a pinball machine Noct and his pals play in-game. Check out the trailer below.

It's really happening, and I have to say it's hard not to feel the hype right now.
