The Final Fantasy XV hype-train continues as Sony published a new teaser trailer for Square Enix’s upcoming, feature length, companion movie Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV. The trailer gives us a glimps into some of the events that come before Final Fantasy XV – “a kingdom protected by a crystal, an empire of powerful machines. They must fight to secure the throne; all for the future king.” Produced by Hajime Tabata and directed by Takeshi Nozue, with scenario is written by Takashi Hasegawa, the team behind Final Fantasy VII: Advent Childeren, Kingsglaive is an eagerly anticipated piece of the Final Fantasy XV puzzle.
Earlier this week, Square Enix revealed some of voice actors to appear in Kingsglaive; Sean Bean as King Regis Lucis Caelum CXIII, Lena Headey as Lunafreya Nox Fleuret and Aaron Paul as Nyx Ulric. Unfortunatly, these actors will not return during Final Fantasy XV, due to the budgetary limitations.
The story follows Nyx Ulrich and his fellow Kingsglaives, who must protect the hallowed kingdom of Insomnia’s Crystal from the overwhelming invading forces of the Nifilheim Empire. Seeing the impending doom before him, King Regis must salvage his kingdom through a forced ultimatum – hand over the land outside the crown city, and force his son into a marriage with a princess held captive by the empire.
Kingsglaive: Final FantasyXV will be released in Japan on July 9, 2016. For those of us in North America, itwill be available via stream and download before Final Fantasy XV’s release, and included as a Blu-ray in the Deluxe Edition and Ultimate Collector’s Edition of Final Fantasy XV, which will be released on September 30, 2016. Until then, check out the trailers bellow.
By the time I got my review code for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, the review embargo was a distant memory and for the most part, the game was universally disliked. However, it’s a title based off a property I adore, developed by one of my favourite studios (Platinum Games) just months after they injected their own flavour into the Transformers series in Transformers: Devastation. There was no way they could mess up that same formula with TMNT, so I ignored the negativity. Now that I’ve played the majority of the game’s four-hour campaign, I can admit that I was wrong—this title has some serious problems. I tried really hard to enjoy my playthrough but the further I ventured into the campaign, the more I realized this game needed more development time.

With Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows in theatres June 3rd, everyone is talking about the heroes in a half shell. As with any nostalgic property, many people hold the franchise near to their hearts. But for every fan, there are detractors, and the new movies have brought about many of those. Regardless, TMNT is one of the biggest franchises in pop culture.
