First Hour of Final Fantasy XV Gameplay Out Now

12 minutes of Kingsglaive and Brotherhood episode 4 also showcased

Final Fantasy XV


Fans were likely disappointed by the recent announcement that Final Fantasy XV would be delayed to November 29th this year, two months after it’s previously announced September 30th release date.

However, a new 60 minute gameplay video has been released on the game’s official YouTube channel that gives us a glimpse at what to expect early on in the game – both from the actual gameplay and the game’s narrative.

The video shows off gameplay from the early chapters of the game along with new footage of features such as Chocobo racing, ability and magic synthesis systems, and the game’s wait mode.  You can see what Final Fantasy XV has in store in the full video down below.


But that’s not all. The first 12 minutes of the Final Fantasy XV Kingsglaive movie have also been released. I won’t go into too much detail on what the 12 minutes of footage shows to avoid spoiling it for anyone who wishes to see the full movie, but it includes an opening narration by Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey, who provides the voice for Princess Luna in the movie. If you don’t mind being spoiled you can watch the video yourself down below.


The Kingsglaive movie will be released August 30th on digital and October 4th on Blu-ray

Lastly the trailer for the 4th episode of the Final Fantasy XV Brotherhood anime titled Bittersweet Memories was released, and the full episode will be uploaded tomorrow August 17th. The 4th episode will focus on the bond between the characters Ignis and Noctis. You can see the trailer below and see the full episode on the game’s Youtube channel very soon.
