Final Fantasy XV, the first proper entry in Square Enix's long-running roll playing game series for over six years, arrives on game consoles in September, and if gamers could hardly be quivering any more with excitement, there is further hype to be had. Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, a spin-off movie that ties in with the game's story is also on the horizon.
The Final Fantasy series is no stranger to spin-off media – most notably Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (2001), which boasted groundbreaking computer generated animation. Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, meanwhile, certainly looks to be raising the bar in photorealism, with levels of details that will leave you double taking.
The English language version has even attracted some A-list calibre, including Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Sean Bean (The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring) and Lena Headey (Game Of Thrones). The Kingsglaive of the title is an elite force of solidiers in the magical kingdom of Lucis.
Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV has already enjoyed a theatrical release in its native Japan, and will get a limited theatrical release in North America. Here in the UK, meanwhile, it will arrives on digital from 30 August and Blu-ray and DVD from 30 September (the same day as the Final Fantasy XV game) via Sony Pictures Home Releasing.
