No, GameSpot wasn’t blowing smoke up your ass. Final Fantasy XV is indeed launching on September 30. Go crazy, folks. Go crazy! Soon enough we’ll all be riding Chocobos, boats, and flying cars!
If you’re the collecting sort, there will be a “Deluxe Edition” that comes with a Steelbook case, in-game items, and Final Fantasy XV: Kingsglaive, a feature-length CGI film. There will also be an “Ultimate Collector’s Edition” that comes packed with a 192-page hardcover art book, Steelbook case, Kingsglaive, the Brotherhood anime series, soundtrack, more in-game items, and a Noctis figurine.
There will only be 30,000 Ultimate Collector’s Editions printed worldwide, all of which we be available exclusively through Square Enix’s online store (for a whopping $270) starting this evening.
A new “Platinum” demo is also now available to download on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.
[Update: A sixth episode of Brotherhood will be available exclusively via the Ultimate Collector’s Edition.]
