Here's some Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV to salve your pain


Magic v Magitek

Final Fantasy XV the game may not be in the cards for another few months, but that won't stop some of the other stuff scheduled to happen. The CGI film Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is still on track for a late August release (it's currently in Japanese theaters), so fans can still get a taste of the game's blending of modern-day aesthetics and Final Fantasy-style techno-magic.

IGN debuted the first twelve minutes of the film, and you can watch them below. Kingsglaive follows the members of the titular unit of soldiers that serve as bodyguards to King Regis, father of Noctis, the protagonist of the game. The story of Kingsglaive is intended to serve as a prequel of sorts to the game and helps set up some of the larger movements in Final Fantasy XV's world, like the war between the magic-using kingdom of Lucis and the technology-wielding empire of Niflheim. The clip covers that, as well as some early exposition and a pretty action sequence featuring lots of teleporting mages and even a few choice Final Fantasy monsters like Behemoths and what looks like a Weapon-type creature.

The film itself promises a star-studded dub cast, with talents like Game of Thrones' Lena Heady and Sean Bean and Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul playing roles.
