TGS 2014: So this is Final Fantasy XV


Is your body ready?

Well, it took 'em long enough - the better part of a decade - but it looks like ordinary players might actually see Final Fantasy XV in playable form before the heat death of the universe. And it might even be fun, judging my the spiffy new trailer above, which features well-haired young men, fancy cars going off-road, and hitting monsters in the face with preposterously large swords.

Additionally, Square Enix has announced that a playable demo of their long-gestating new baby will be included with copies of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, which is scheduled for release in March of 2015. 

Hajime Tabata, director of Type-0, will be taking over Final Fantasy XV's helm from Tetsuya Nomura. Given that Type-0 seemed to be well-regarded in Japan, and was one of the few pieces of the ill-fated Final Fantasy XIII mega-project to come in on time, he might be the guy to "get 'er done" (no offense to Nomura).
