Final Fantasy XV's really looking nuts


Towns, toys, and trippy clothing

OK, Square Enix, you've got me. Despite my best attempts to remain thin-lipped and cynical about the prospects of Final Fantasy XV, the latest trailer you lot put out at Jump Festa yesterday has officially gotten me hype.

For one thing, we finally know a little more about the story, which seems to involve a war between a bunch of dudes wearing plate armor and toting assault rifles against a bunch of dudes wearing three-piece suits and rocking teleporting swords, with Noctis and his pals on the lam in occupied territory. There's also a female character named Cindy, who looks like she got her costume at a Dead or Alive clearance sale.

Secondly, there's the gameplay, which is showing off stealth, combat, some pretty town exploration, and even a boss fight against a skyscraper-sized giant. Oh, and there seem to be playable dogs, if the extended demo video below is any indication. To be honest they could've just led with the playable dogs and I'd be onboard with this boondoggle.
