Square Enix has released a new teaser for Final Fantasy XV, and it gives us a glimpse at Noctis' past and how things came to be in the Kingdom of Lucis. While carrying Noctis, his father looks sad, and although this trailer doesn't reveal new gameplay footage, it does give a deeper look at two important characters of the FFXV's story. The coolest part of this trailer is when we see the three huge imposing shadows appearing in dawn's horizon, followed with the message: "Now, the sun rises -the dawn of a new king". I'm really excited to play this game and see how Noctis' story will unfold. Watch the trailer below: 


Square Enix also offered some insight on how the kingdom fell: 

In a matter of days, the Kingdom of Lucis is to sign an armistice, ending a long and bitter conflict with Niflheim. Ahead of the ceremony, Prince Noctis, heir to the Lucian throne, sets forth from his homeland to formalize the union of states through his marriage to the Lady Lunafreya of the imperial province of Tenebrae.
The offer of peace, however, is no more than a ruse to lower the Lucian shield, and the imperial army takes the crown city and its sacred crystal in one fell swoop. En route to his destination, Noctis is shocked to learn that he, his father the king, and his betrothed are believed dead.
Overnight, the dream of peace has faded into a distant memory. His world crumbling around him, Noctis has naught but his resolve and his loyal companions to see him through the trials to come.

I know a lot of fans are not happy with this trailer as it didn't reveal a release date or new gameplay footage, but this video shows a promising sign that Square Enix is developing an epic worth experiencing. I hope that they will reveal more story trailers like this while we wait for the game to be released. So are you excited to play Final Fantasy XV
