World of Final Fantasy Director Comments on The Game’s Release Date Being Before Final Fantasy 15
Consider World of Final Fantasy as an “appetizer” while you wait for Final Fantasy 15.
Square Enix has their eyes set upon October and November, with major releases for the Final Fantasy franchises coming in the forms of World of Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy 15 respectively. During Gamescom, World of Final Fantasy Game Director Hiroki Chiba sat down with DualShockers, and revealed his thoughts on the studio’s delay of Final Fantasy 15.
He clarified that they haven’t changed anything as a result of the delay, since the studio feels very confident towards the game. However, he believes that players will now get the chance to try out World of Final Fantasy while they wait for Final Fantasy 15, describing it as an “appetizer” for those who can’t wait to get their hands on new game related to the franchise.
“We haven’t done any changes to World of Final Fantasy because of the change in the release of Final Fantasy XV. It is the same game, but that being said, we’re very confident in World of Final Fantasy, and the release was close to XV to begin with, so we feel that we have a good chance as a title of our own to shine and to be unique.”
“And of course XV is in itself a very good title, and they’re bringing their best, so we brought our best in World of Final Fantasy as well. Before we were about to say “please have World of Final Fantasy as a sort of dessert after Final Fantasy XV,” but now that the release has switched, you can enjoy it as an appetizer before XV comes out.”
World of Final Fantasy releases on October 25 for PS4 and PS Vita.
