Official product descriptions for the Xbox One and PS4 provide some slight new details.
Square Enix has provided some official descriptions for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Final Fantasy 15, and revealed that it’s meant more as an action game than previous titles.
In the PS4 description, the publisher states that the battles have “evolved greatly from the previous games of the series, as it’s created as an action game. The game switches seamlessly from the field to battle and the combat situation evolves rapidly. It goes on quickly with a sense of full realism.”
It also confirms that you’ll be able to switch to other characters and perform combination attacks. You can also “fight monsters by cooperating with an ally. The ability to fight in collaboration with unique companions is an important feature of this game.”
The Xbox One description echoes many of the same points, stating that Final Fantasy 15 has a “high action system unprecedented in the series. By taking advantage of the specs of next generation consoles, characters can move freely across the whole screen. In addition to that, the party battle system is now more advanced, allowing you to enjoy party battle by switching characters more strategically.”
E3 2014 is just around the corner and will doubtlessly provide new details on Noctis and friends. Could a tentative release date be far off? We’ll find out this June.
