Go on a Sunday drive with Final Fantasy XV


But what's on the radio?

Based on what we've seen so far, the most interesting parts of Final Fantasy XV  are looking less like "epic adventure" and more like "awesome road trip". And I'm totally down with that notion. Riding in a car with your buds can be just as exciting as saving the world, especially if the car in question is as cool as the Regalia, your regal limo.

The team at Square Enix seem well aware of that and have wisely spent some promo time on a video of Final Fantasy XV's "driving gameplay", going into unnecessary detail about the available camera angles. And strangely enough, the fact that they've gone to such lengths to simulate the experience of traveling by car makes FFXV feel like the most modern and contemporary Final Fantasy yet, even with all that sci-fantasy stuff from other trailers and continuing nonsense about crystals and whatnot. Call me pumped for it, I guess.

In some ways, perhaps the least realistic thing about all this is how the car isn't yet littered with food containers despite how long the quartet have been driving, and why they're not listening to some cool radio stations or podcasts in the clip. For that matter, what would a podcast in the world of a Final Fantasy game be like?
