Even though the official release date of FINAL FANTASY XV is November 29, some regions in South America and the Middle East can already purchase the full version.
Going against Square Enix’s premise of releasing FINAL FANTASY XV nearly simultaneously worldwide, fans who live in some countries of South America and Middle East can already purchase it from retailers. It has also been reported that some people in the United States got early access to the newest entry in the JRPG franchise. That resulted in the ending of the game, which might normally take between 60 and 80 hours to reach, being streamed ahead of time.
On top of that, FINAL FANTASY XV features a day-one patch. The game has been delayed from its original release date of September 30 to fix issues and implement enhancements. The day-one patch further extends those fixes and enhancements, featuring: camera improvements, an ability tree for the “wait mode” function, the addition of a “monster whistle”, the addition of scenes from Kingsglaive: FINAL FANTASY XV and the Omen trailer, recipes, fish varieties and gallery, and a social network feature that will allow players to upload Prompto’s photos to Facebook and Twitter.
Originally titled FINAL FANTASY Versus XIII and in development for ten years, the newest entry in one of the longest running JRPG franchises, FINAL FANTASY XV has fans excited. The promotional campaign was rich and healthy, always keeping viewers entertained, and the game itself promises to revitalize the franchise after the negative impact FINAL FANTASY XIII and FINAL FANTASY XIV had on both the public and critics.
Hajime Tabata recently hinted in an interview to French website JeuxVideo at the possibility of a PC port for FINAL FANTASY XV, which could take more than a year to be developed. For now, the title is officially coming to stores on November 29 for PlayStation 4 and XBox One.
