Final Fantasy XV anime begins tonight, CG film to follow
While Uncovered Final Fantasy brought a torrent of announcements boasting features within the game, Square Enix also revealed a few things outside of the game itself in the form of Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV and Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV.
Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV
Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV is a five episode series detailing the relationships between Noctis and his friends. The first episode is already available to watch, and the entire series will be available to stream for free.
Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV
Final Fantasy XV will also be accompanied by a full-length, cg film. Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV will release this fall, and Square Enix detailed the plot in their press release:
The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the hallowed Crystal, but the menacing empire of Niflheim will stop at nothing to make it theirs. War has raged between the two for as long as most can remember.
King Regis of Lucis commands an elite force of soldiers dubbed the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, Nyx Ulric and his fellow glaives stand before the crown city of Insomnia, fighting to stay the inexorable advance of Niflheim’s imperial army.
Before the overwhelming military might of the empire, King Regis can only salvage his kingdom by accepting anultimatum—he must cede all lands outside the crown city, and see his son, Prince Noctis, wed to Lady Lunafreya, the former princess of Tenebrae now captive of Niflheim.
As the war of wills rages, the machinations of Niflheim transform Insomnia into an awe-inspiring battleground, pulling Nyx into a struggle for the very survival of the kingdom.
