Live action Final Fantasy XV trailer channels Goonies

It’s all about the bros

Square Enix has released what might be the final trailer for the game that started life as Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Yep, XV is out, and it’s way better than XIII. The concept of young children hunting an Iron Giant has very little to do with XV itself (unless you’re going with the whole “boyish spirit” motif), but it’s cute to watch.

I would have said that the video taps into Stand by Me instead of The Goonies in the headline, but then you would have said “no shit! That’s the song!” Then I would have replied “no, the film where Kiefer Sutherland was actually 20 years old, but looked like he was 40.” See, it’s easier to just have this conversation here instead.
