Final Fantasy XV previews new CG renders for Cor, Iris, Cidney and more By Erren Van Duine on October 28, 2016 at 2:32 PM

A new update on Famitsu’s official Final Fantasy XV portal features the arrival of several CG character renders – including Cor, Iris, Cidney, Cid, Ravus and Iedolas.

Cor Leonis


A valiant protector who stood beside Regis during the king’s journey 30 years prior, and continued to serve his liege marshalling the Lucian Crownsguard. Cor the Immortal’s heroic feats in battle make him the stuff of legend, and for Noct and his closest friends, an invaluable ally in the field.

Cid Sophiar


Outspoken old friend of Regis who owns and operates the Hammerhead garage. Although he’s getting on in years, Cid remains the master mechanic he was when he traveled alongside Regis thirty years before, and beneath the surly surface beats a warm and gentle heart.

Cidney/Cindy Aurum


Belle of the body shop who handles the day to day business while her cranky grandfather tinkers away in the garage. Cidney is an accomplished mechanic herself, and assists Noct and the gang’s trusty car, the Regalia.

Iedolas Aldercapt


Emperor of Niflheim. Iedolas has used the empire’s superior airship and magitek armor technology to mount an aggressive campaign of territorial expansion, only to suddenly offer Lucis a peace.

Ravus Nox Flueret


Brother to Lunafreya (Noctis’ fiance). Following the attack and occupation of his hometown of Tenebrae, he joined the Niflheim Imperial Army.

Iris Amicitia


Gladiolus’ sister. She managed to escape the attack on Insomnia by the Niflheim Empire and now lives in the city of Lestallum. She’s accompanied both Noct and Ignis since childhood.

  • Carlos Rojas

    Ravus Nox Fleuret VIlliers

  • kirtanloorii

    Too bad they look different than they do in Kingsglaive.

  • Daniel Masterson

    Not that different.

  • dbclick

    For those that don’t know the reference:

  • Iris looks like a little girl. How old is she 12?

  • β€’december


  • What does Core and Iris do for work now? Core is out of a job with the king dead. And is Iris a lady in waiting who doesn’t need to work since Gladio is a knight?


    Yo les voy a decir una cosa

  • Yuntu

    Lucis. They pretty much still serve the King. Noctis.


    Cor is so going to be killed, darkness isnt darkness when its predictable

  • Yuntu

    everyone knew Zack was going to die in Crisis Core and Tabata still managed to make that scene dark and effective as fuck

  • Justice V

    Iris might still just be a college student and living off student loans.

  • Justice V

    Cidney (Shidoni) in Japan. Stupid Cindy in US/EU.

  • Justice V

    Should be 18-20ish. Looks about right for the age.

  • kirtanloorii

    Lol. Thanks for that. That’s exactly what I was talking about. lol

  • Jesus Christ

    Cor is a beauitul rugged man. I shall have him tonight with me in bed

  • Yuntu

    nah she is royal

    they get special treatment i would assume :p

  • Yuntu


    in the german translation her name is Cidney.

  • All Seeing Eye

    Goddamn. Cor has a sexy weapon!

  • Exactly. That game, CC was just beautiful. The look on Cloud’s face as he watches in vain as Zack dies. SMH the feels…

  • She has no figure. It’s like she’s short and skinny like her body isn’t or didn’t develop. Doesn’t she seem oddly preteen-ish beside Gladio, Ignis and Noctis?

  • LOL that’d be funny

  • But Core is retiring age and Iris doesn’t seem like a fighter. Maybe she’ll get a desk job or take self-defense and become a cop.

  • stevenm281

    strange thing, my bf, not only is also 42yo like Cor, but they have a very similar face structure

  • Jesus Christ

    That’s … hot. I like older men… the well taken care of kind. Tell him I say hi.

  • Jesus Christ

    Old cid looks so pruney. Someone give him some skin care!

  • stevenm281

    I don’t know how I am that lucky.

    Furthermore, we’re gonna celebrate our 11th anniversary on December 2nd.

  • Jesus Christ

    11 YEARS? GURLLLLL, you so lucky to have real life Cor. I’m jelly. aye amma follow you on Twitter follow me back!

  • stevenm281

    I’m rarely on twitter, I’m more of a Facebook user.

  • NoctLightCloud

    Ravus though *___*

  • NoctLightCloud

    Amen. If it’s well told, a story can still be entertaining, despite already knowing how it ends. πŸ™‚ (I’ve replayed CC recently)

  • NoctLightCloud

    Maybe it’s what Japanese consider 18-20yrs old to look like?

  • Jesus Christ

    You like game version or movie version better? πŸ˜‰

  • Codes McGodes

    I think Ravus is the only character that looks better in the movie. This render is nice though, but he generally looks like an emaciated horse in-game.

  • NoctLightCloud

    I prefer the game version as he looks a bit thin/sick in the movie. But it’s just a detail, I actually like both versions. I love the idea that Luna’s brother is an antagonist.

  • Yuntu

    Well yeah Iris isnΒ΄t a fighter. But your question are whom they serve.

    I think, logically, Noctis is their King now making him the one they follow and serve.

  • Maybe in DLC after the post game they’ll show Iris return to Insomnia and get into the family business.

  • Oh I forgot. Some cast members are more asian influenced. Noctis and Iris are more like asian young adult. So I guess their interaction and her choice of clothes will reflect that. Well It’s not bad. It just reminded me of Rena from Star Ocean 2 would basically looked like someone’s little sister more than a wife or girlfriend of adult age. Same with Serah and Snow in 13. Though Zidane and Garent and Cloud and Tifa seem like straight up perfect body and age matches for each other.

  • 4FFAN

    I’m guessing Cor isn’t 42 years old anymore…or was he fighting alongside the King at 12 years old lol

  • Jesus Christ

    He has very little cheek fat in the game and even in movie. He looks more “generic” in game CG. In movie, he looks like we can match him up with a real human… “model” LOL XD

  • β€’december


  • stevenm281

    that is strange indeed…

    I guess we’ll have an explanation in-game, because he can’t really be older than 42yo based on his character’s model.

  • NoctLightCloud

    It’s really just a minor preference of mine, nothing more^^ He is an interesting character, I’m looking forward to more.

  • Depends on how old Regis is.

  • What has to be done for regular in-game graphics to always look like a CG cutscene?

  • Syafiq Khaidir

    Come on NC, no ‘OMEN’ trailer?

  • Yuntu


    lots of it, endless amounts of it

    atleast until years down the line

  • Yuntu

    yeah – im guessing he is 45-48 then – unless they mean the point he started serving Regis, which couldΒ΄ve been around 12 judging by Ignis/Gladio serving Noctis

  • Jesus Christ

    Or they can just pray XD

  • Jesus Christ

    I can agree with this.

  • Why was her name made Cindy unsteady Cidney again?

  • But it is possible right? I want a whole game that looks like the Omen trailer.

  • NoctisStrife87

    She reminds me of Yuffie. She was little too and had that cute face sometimes. So we can be surprised with her.

  • Yuntu

    not on consoles

  • Yuntu


    ItΒ΄s like Aeris/Aerith. In Germany for example the subtitles and VAs say Cidney and not Cindy.

  • D.3ND

    Quantum Processor’s have yet to be made.

  • D.3ND

    Unless he’s some like Kakashi.

  • For some reason, I alwasy think that Iris looks a lot like Hinami from Tokyo Ghoul:re

  • What? All it takes is even higher level of graphics and lighting right? It looks like the game games just upscaled to Hollywood level.

  • D.3ND

    If your computer doesn’t have the specs to handle or process those high end graphics and lighting it will be meaningless. You can optimize the graphics so that anyone who’s uses a toaster or a cereal box can play it, but you will notice the limitations .

    *EDIT* I just read through Mognet Central link you provided, I understand now what you meant.

  • Justice V

    Yeah Localization team/person. Whoever is in charge of that keeps making weird decisions Cidney would have been fine and accurate.

  • Justice V

    Give it another 10-20 years. Look at the cg cutscenes from VII or VIII, gameplay graphics are close if not better at times. Also depends how expansive you want the worlds. Open world games like xv, red dead, etc need even more power to keep it all going constantly on such a gigantic scale. That’s why open worlds tend to be slightly lower res than closed sectional games.

  • So it’s possible to have a game look like a CG movie the whole time but if they did not everyone would be able to play it with limited tech in some areas of the world? Most homes don’t have the same tech to have that one screen the whole time without crashing?

  • Justice V

    Kinda yeah but a lot of girls I’ve known between 17-25 look pretty similar. Stinks when you’re baby faced, short, flat and super thin heh. (After 25 a lot of those girls started getting fat and looked closer to their actual age though). Do agree she and Gladio don’t look much related though. Need to see her/their mom.

  • Justice V

    Guess by EU I just meant the english version in Europe. Have no clue about her name in portuguese, Russian, Spanish, French, etc. but guess at least Germany got it right. So maybe only a poor translation in English.

  • Maybe it’s just a fetish in JPN for girls to always looks like your little sister and to walk around doing that behind the back hands thing to look non-threatening and playful. I like my women voluptuous as possible. And you get the early on at least as far as I see in poor latino and black neighborhoods.

  • Just like I’ll never live long enough to see floating cars or robot women, I bet I’ll be dead before games look as good as these renderings. I’m already 31. *sobs*

  • Exactly. She could’ve been the first female Cid. And making her Cidney and daughter of Cid would’ve been cool. But NOOOOOO! Gotta give her the name akin to some random valley girl at school.

  • Noctis

    check youtube. I saw that a few days aswell they just removed the omen thread :O

  • NoctLightCloud

    Yes Zidane & Garnet, Cloud & Tifa or Tidus & Yuna are perfect in that sense. But Noctis and Iris are not meant to be seen as couple to begin with. I think it’s just a childish fantasy from Iris’ side. Just a character specification element, nothing more. A romantic fantasy from a girl, nothing serious. πŸ˜‰

  • D.3ND

    They might have been thinking that it would be weird to have two Cids in the game unless they off one of them.

  • D.3ND

    4 weeks to go…..

  • Yuntu

    could be, we also got bravely more properly translated into german

  • noctcaelum

    I feel bad for the person who’d get stepped on by ravus. Those shoes looks like a gundam’s feet.

  • NoctisStrife87

    Well in some countries Cidney can sound as a male name not female, and different from some places that you can use Terry, for example for both. Cidney does not apply in that.

  • Codes McGodes

    Calling her Cidney wouldn’t have made her the first female Cid because her grandfather Cid would still be the Cid of this game. Kind of like how FFXII’s Al-Cid is just a second character who shares the name. Dr. Cid is the official Cid of that game. Cindy/Cidney is more or less the equivalent of Mid in this game, regardless of what her name localizes as.

  • stevenm281

    Their “More News” function is broken on the main page.

    Some news kinda disappear between Home Page and the More News Page.

    I noticed because I checked this site more than once daily and during busier days when articles flow like crazy, I happened to press More News and noticed that earlier articles vanished. They do appear in the More News eventually in the far future, I guess when many other articles have been posted.

  • Robert Stukenbroeker

    CG will always be more detailed because it’s prerendered. in-game graphics now are a lot better than CG Cutscenes from the past.

  • But I want it to the point where it looks like we’re playing the Omen trailer.

  • Well they need a female Cidney one of these days.

  • I was thinking Cid and Core and Regis died in the game anyway.

  • True. And it looks like Luna won’t get with Noctis either since they said she spends the whole game away from him. And that leaves no time to fall in love. Smh

  • highsky00

    We won’t live till that time mate.

  • Yeah I’m already 31. I’ll be dead way before most things get good. Especially since I’m working-poor.

  • Justice V

    Annoying part is going to be playing in Japanese hearing Cidney and reading Cindy hehe.

  • Justice V

    I actually do that hands behind the back thing when walking around with girls myself hehe. But that was because my ex was super overly paranoid about being cheated on and would get upset if I would even give a girl a hug or touch them on the shoulder. So opted to walk around with my hands behind my back or always in my back pockets heh.

  • Wow. Sounds like like they either really loved you or was overly controlling. Hugs aren’t cheating. Kissing and fucking are. But at least walking with your hands in your pockets looks badass.
