Final Fantasy XV was supposed to be released on September 30th, as Square Enix has announced on March 30th, during an event that took place in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, the developer is forced by circumstances to change its plans and delay the game’s launch until the 29th of November.
The first game from the Final Fantasy franchise was released in 1987, being created by Hironobu Sakaguchi. The latest entry is Final Fantasy XV and it’s becoming a full action RPG, giving players the feeling that the game is very similar to Kingdom Hearts. Square Enix – the developer, has firstly talked about the Final Fantasy XV in 2006, at the E3 event, and it took it ten years to finish it. The fans are anxious to play it, but they’ll have to wait a little longer, until November 29th, when the game will be officially released.
Hajime Tabata, the game’s director has talked (in Japanese) on Youtube about the delay, and you can watch the video below:
However, if you don’t speak Japanese, we’ll tell you what he stated. He explained that the game will be delayed because he “wants the game to achieve a level of perfection that fans deserve”, so the team will have more time to perfect Final Fantasy XV. “From the moment we joined this project, our vision was to create a level of freedom and realism previously unseen in the series. Regrettably, we need a little bit more time to deliver on this vision and are confident that this new release date will help us achieve this,” Hajime Tabata added.
Final Fantasy XV is the 15th main installment in the series, having a thematic connection with Fabula Nova Crystallis Final Fantasy, and it provides a darker atmosphere that focuses on more realistic environments. Also, the human characters look more realistic.
