    I've been waiting for this game since I saw the first CGI trailer they released. Combat looks great, so happy the the teleport looks to be in the game in some fashion.

    Eagerly await it's release in the coming decade...

    It's probably really close to being done, either winter/fall next year or spring of 2016 I imagine. With the Demo being released with FF Type 0 and Nomura going to work on Kingdom Hearts 3 now, I'd say it's mostly done.

    With them all driving around in a car looking like a bunch of androgynous models, all I can think about is that "mocha frapuccino" scene in Zoolander.

    Absolutely absurd graphics being rendered in real time, and the battle gameplay looks fun too.

    I have a feeling this game is gonna blow everyone away lol.

    Though the cast seems extremely male dominated.

    From what we've glimpsed, I feel like the battles will mainly be the four dudes, but the story will revolve mainly around Noctis and Stella. It's a very Kingdom Hearts formula.

    So... what are the chances that the dude with pink hair, the hat and the umbrella is introduced as some kind of advisor/soldier of the bad guy whose empire is attacking, but then at the end of the first act pink hair dude kills the ruler of the aggressor empire, establishes himself as the real villain, then tries to destroy the world?

    (Pink hair dude is in the E3 trailer)

    A demo for FFXV will be released with FF Type-0, around March 2015. This surely indicates a summer 2015 release window.

    I think they might just make it about the ten-year anniversary of the first CGI trailer, if that's the case... I can't quite recall the exact timing of it.

    I would say low. From that short scene he appears to me as more of an amused observer type, similar to Urahara from Bleach or Xelloss from Slayers, than a secret main villain.

    It's certainly possible. That dude is clearly more than an underling as he's in the main char strip. Personally, I'm guessing whoever is under the ff13 Purge robe is manipulating the conflict for some greater evil/purpose.

    Did anybody else notice the little moon necklace that Luna is wearing? If you look at the pictures of Stella, you'll notice she has star earrings.

    That, their looks, and their celestial names... Sisters maybe?

    He reminds me of Kuja from FFIX, so I'd say the chance is high.

    New gameplay vid of a real-time rendered behemoth fight.

    Not the best quality vid. Only 720p. But they demonstrate basic attacks, dodging, teleport, and what looks to be some sort of partner combo / limit break. If you don't care to watch the camera do close ups around around the chars for 4 mins, the action starts around 4:55.

    I was watching the action commands throughout. It kinda looked like a bastardization of KH2 and God of War in that, as you switch targets, complete actions, or move in and out of range, different sets of commands become available. Depending on the difficulty of fights, trying to execute the right set of actions in order to queue the big finishers could prove quite fun.

    That said, there didn't seem to be any sort of limit on teleport, so that might potentially dumb things down.

    Also, in this vid, their super j-pop hair is 100% waterproof ... which is a little lol.

    Edit: Whoops didn't see the link above.

    God, that looks absolutely stunning.

    I haven't played Final Fantasy games since FFX-2, but this might be where I jump back into the series.
