Final Fantasy XV could be set in Tokyo, Japan photo



Look in the background of the newly released Final Fantasy XV gameplay trailer that Square Enix released this morning. The foreground of these shots looks like some kind of fantasy world, but the background looks a lot like my hometown, Tokyo. Shinjuku, specifically. Maybe it's not Shinjuku, but there's definitely a dual city thing going on. It's like they're in the future where a new world has been built on top of an existing one. 

The other smaller things my sharp eyes have noticed? The big TV in the background of some of the battles is "powered by Sphere." Check out the ruins in the middle of the waterfall toward the end of the video. And what are those strange floating boxes?

Final Fantasy XV screenshots from TGS are...uh

You've seen the trailer so now see the screenshots Square Enix handed me this morning at Tokyo Game Show 2014 for Final Fantasy XV. They're having a tailgating party. Car-b-que. It's a nice car, I guess. But the screenshots look nice! That battle one does something for me. The upcoming Xbox One and PS4 title has this new media, but that's the only thing you'll get out of TGS 2014. Hang in there.more
