There was some speculation that FINAL FANTASY XV’s delay from September to November may have been related to Sony’s as-of-then-unannounced hardware, the PS4 Pro and PS4 Slim. While the additional development time has yielded significant improvements to FINAL FANTASY XV, the whole situation is still a bit suspicious.

Square Insider Reviews Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV

Brendan    2016-08-24    0 comments

In hindsight, Kingsglaive was obviously expected to be Final Fantasy XV’s emergent multimedia universe darling. I would argue that position has been usurped by the consistently excellent anime Brotherhood. Whereas Brotherhood is quite good, Kingsglaive is just good enough. This isn’t to say that Kingsglaive is bad. With stunning visuals and a gripping score, the foundation for an excellent movie...
