A sixth episode will be available exclusively through Final Fantasy XV’s Ultimate Collector’s Edition, focusing on the character Luna.
Final Fantasy XV is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 29th after a delay of its original September release date. Before the game launches, Square Enix is releasing not only an animated series in the form of Brotherhood, but a film set in Final Fantasy XV’s universe called Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, which will be begin showing at select theaters in North America August 19th, followed by a digital release on August 30th, as well as a Blu-ray and DVD launch on October 9th.
By the time that Final Fantasy XV is actually available to the public, it will have been in development for over a decade, having originally been revealed as a PlayStation 3 exclusive under the name Final Fantasy Versus XIII in 2006. Final Fantasy XV was re-revealed under its new name in 2013 during Sony’s E3 press conference, where it was confirmed that the game transitioned from spin-off into a mainline title for the long-running role-playing game series.
