Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is getting a new 4K remaster in February

Final Fantasy XV is now half a decade old, which makes its prequel tie-in movie, Kingsglaive, a few months older than that. The August 2016 CG flick starring Sean Bean, Lena Headey, and Aaron Paul — none of whom reprise their roles in the game itself — was a marvel to look at in 1080p, which makes the prospect of a 4K remaster fairly tantalizing.

Square Enix has launched a Japanese-only promotional site for the pending re-release, titled Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV 4K HDR Remaster. Two Ultra HD Blu-ray discs, a scenario guide, and an art book are included in the purchase. There's also something called "File Fragments" which seems to be a highlight pamphlet for key scenes from the film.

The whole thing is pretty spiffy-looking if we do say so ourselves.


Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV 4K HDR Remaster will be available on February 4 for 13,200 yen, or roughly $116. You can pre-order it today on Japan's Amazon site. There's been no word of an official Western edition, but it could certainly happen at a later date.
