Sakaguchi Says Final Fantasy XV: Kingsglaive is "Incredible", Justifies Lack of Female in The Game

Final Fantasy XV: Kingsglaive, the CGI animated feature length film accompanying the story of Square Enix's upcoming role-playing game, will focus on Lady Lunafreya's story, and the trailer released back in April gave us a first look at the epic film.

During a lecture at Bitsummit livestread on Nico Nico (via Dualshockers), Legendary Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi talked about Final Fantasy XV: Kingsglaive, and how it interfaces with the game.

Near the end of the lecture, he encouraged the audience to watch Kingsglaive, and said that it's "incredible," and as someone who made a film himself, he understands the amount of work that went into making it.


Sakaguchi-san said that the visuals are "even better than the trailer makes them look," the story is "great," and it justifies the group of four men featured in the game.

Sakaguchi explained that at first, when he saw the four protagonists, he felt anoyed because there's no female character, but after watching the film, he understood and he thinks players will be able to enjoy the game even more after seeing it.

Sadly, Sakaguchi did not shae new information about his own projects, other than the fact that he's building up a new team in the new studio in Tokyo, where he hopes to create the games that fans "have been expecting to play for a while."

Final Fantasy XV will be released on September 30 for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
