Final Fantasy XV (Japanese: ファイナルファンタジーXV Hepburn: Fainaru Fantajī Fifutīn

)

is an upcoming action role-playing video game being developed and

published by Square Enix for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and

currently scheduled for a worldwide release in 2016. It is the fifteenth

main installment in the

Final Fantasy

series, and forms part of the

Fabula Nova Crystallis

subseries, which also includes

Final Fantasy XIII

and

Final Fantasy Type-0

. Originally a PlayStation 3-exclusive spin-off titled

Final Fantasy Versus XIII

,


it is a major departure from previous games, providing a darker

atmosphere that focuses on more realistic human characters than previous

entries. The game features an open-world environment and action-based

battle system similar to the

Kingdom Hearts

series and

Type-0

, incorporating the ability to switch weapons and other elements such as vehicle travel and camping.

The

game takes place in a world similar to modern-day Earth, where all the

world's countries bar the kingdom of Lucis are under the dominion of the

empire of Niflheim. Noctis Lucis Caelum, heir to the Lucian

throne—having gained magical power from a near-death experience—is

driven from his home when Niflheim invades Lucis on the eve of peace

negotiations between the two nations. Now on the run with his

companions, Noctis begins to work towards defeating the forces of

Niflheim and rescuing the crystal from their control.

Final Fantasy XV


is being developed by a team within Square Enix's 2nd Business

Division, and is the first to use the company's Luminous Studio

middleware engine. It was originally directed by

Tetsuya Nomura

,

who also designed characters and conceived the concept and base story.

In 2014, co-director Hajime Tabata took Nomura's place as director,

while Nomura moved on to finish work on

Kingdom Hearts III

.

Final Fantasy XV

started production shortly before its announcement in May 2006, under the name

Final Fantasy Versus XIII

.

The game's long development time and absence from the public eye gave

rise to several rumors concerning its possible cancellation or shift to

another platform. In June 2013, it was eventually revealed to have been

renamed and to have switched systems from PlayStation 3 to

eighth-generation platforms.
