The Final Fantasy XV Midnight Launch Event

The Final Fantasy XV Midnight Launch Event

Final Fantasy XV went live on 29 November 2016, and we at Malaysia were amongst the first in the world to be able to grab a copy! To celebrate this momentous occasion, PLAY Interactive (the Southeast Asia game distributor) partnered with Square Enix and Sony Interactive Entertainment, to organise a massive Final Fantasy XV Midnight Launch Event.

More than 500 Final Fantasy fans gathered in the GSC Maxx cinema to hear from the key developers of Final Fantasy XV, many of whom are Malaysians! This Malaysian influence in FFXV is something we highlighted not too long ago, and is a point of pride for many Malaysian gamers.

They were also treated to the first ever live play of Final Fantasy XV, on arguably the largest screen ever – the GSC Maxx cinema screen!

The Making Of Final Fantasy XV & Final Gameplay Preview

After showing us the PC development version of Final Fantasy XV, Wan Hazmer is back with more Final Fantasy XV goodies. At the second day of Level Up KL 2016, he gave a much-anticipated talk on the making of Final Fantasy XV and the rebirth of the Final Fantasy franchise.

Wan Hazmer also showed off the final gameplay preview for Final Fantasy XV, and the Omen trailer. His talk ran long, but seriously, who cares??? 😀

 

The Making Of Final Fantasy XV

In this video, Wan Hazmer reveals how the Final Fantasy XV team reinvented themselves and the Final Fantasy franchise to “reclaim the gaming throne“. It is a mesmerising look at the making of Final Fantasy XV.

For those who don’t know yet, Wan Hazmer is the Lead Game Designer (Culture Team) of Final Fantasy XV. A true blue Malaysian, he is the reason for the Malaysian influence in Final Fantasy XV.

 

The Final Fantasy XV Final Gameplay Preview

After his presentation, Wan Hazmer showed off what is likely to be the final gameplay preview of Final Fantasy XV before its official launch in just 3 weeks. Check it out!

Final Fantasy XV, if you recall, was previously scheduled to be launched on September 30, but Square Enix announced on August 15 that it would be delayed to November 29, 2016. The two month delay was necessary “to achieve a level of perfection that our fans deserve“, according to Final Fantasy XV Game DirectorHajime Tabata. [adrotate banner=”5″]
