Final Fantasy XV Taipei Game Show
Square Enix’s Hajime Tabata took the stage at Taipei Game Show, a leading gaming event in Asia – to showcase Final Fantasy XV.
The game is set in modern times, but the city-like country Lucis which protagonist Noctis hails from is the only technologically advanced location, otherwise surrounded by medieval nations.
The reason for this divide is a cold war waged over crystals, the last of which Lucis holds. The other nations used to have their own crystals, but lost them due to ongoing conflicts.
They have since focused their efforts on the development of weapons rather than on the progress of their culture, which left them in their regressive state.
Just as the cold war ends and a treaty on the peaceful use of crystals is declared, the nation Niflheim unexpectedly invades Lucis, forcing Noctis and his friends to escape.
Having waged wars against the countries Solheim, Tenebrae and Accordo, Niflheim’s forces conquer the last remaining crystal, but Noctis tries to stop them before they can leave the city.”
Final Fantasy XV is currently in development for PS4 and Xbox One, yet to be dated. A playable demo will be available with the first copies of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD.
