New demo for Japan titled Final Fantasy XV: Judgment Disc By James Stine on November 10, 2016 at 4:07 AM

During today’s Active Time Report, a new demo was announced for Japan players titled Final Fantasy XV: Judgment Disc available on November 11th.

With Final Fantasy XV releasing in only a few weeks, this demo seems to serve as a way to “judge” the final product. The demo’s contents span from the beginning to half way through Chapter 1 of the game. Expected total playtime for this new demo will be around an hour and a half. While you won’t be able to carry your save from this demo over into the final game, players who complete the demo will be rewarded with a “special” video.

Judgment Disc marks the third demo available for the game pre-launch. The first demo, Episode Duscae, launched in March 2015 alongside Final Fantasy Type-0 HD and was patched at a later date. The second demo, Platinum Demo, saw its release a year later following Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV as more of a technical demonstration rather than a vertical slice indicative of the final product.

For those who won’t be playing this new demo, Final Fantasy XV releases worldwide on November 29th, 2016 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

    Even if I had the option to, I still wouldn’t play that demo. We’re very close now, I can wait a little while longer. (and that video will make its way to the internet one way or the other)

  • Adam Hedquist

    Couldn’t one get this outside of japan? I mean can’t I make a fake japanese account and download it that way??

  • Breathless

    Can we get any more region-locked extras please I absolutely love them and we don’t yet have enough kthxbai~
    /s

  • Yes you can.

  • It’s not region locked, just make a JP account and download it. The only thing is SE just isn’t taking the time to make a US/EU version some reason.

  • Breathless

    “just” – yeah, that’s my point exactly. Considering the demo is basically a piece of the actual game, is including non-JP subs and making it available worldwide really such a hurdle? As opposed to “forcing” everyone outside Japan who would like to play it to “just make a JP account” for the sole reason of grabbing this?

  • lmaoo trust me I see where you’re coming from Breath, can I call you Breath? Anyhow, I know it’s a hurdle most wouldn’t want to go through but the best I can say is either we hope they come out with a western version next week or we might as well just wait until we release for the full game.

  • Breathless

    Yeah, I probably am gonna wait (successfuly dodged most of the gameplay video spoilertrains so far too), it’s just the principle of it that boggles my mind. But that’s going into another discussion entirely. ^^”

  • Noctis

    Well we can see that video on youtube. Why is only Japan getting that damn Demo!!!!!!

  • stevenm281

    Why only Japan, this sucks majorly!

  • Noctis

    yeah they really suck…..what is this bullshit!

  • stevenm281

    first, they don’t release their latest story trailer in English (voice cast, not subtitles), only in Japanese and French, they have made ATRs exclusive to the Japanese market for the last two or three months, and now, they don’t even release their latest demo…

    What the fuck is going on? Why their sudden disdain of the English market?

  • stevenm281

    but can you play it in English?

  • Noctis

    Well you are right buddy

  • D.3ND

    Were half way dealing with the second Archfiend and two more waiting to down. I don’t want another tailer demo to eat up my PS4 memory space with no save data transfer just satisfy me, I want the full game end of story.

  • Frederick Badguy

    Dudes, whats is the problem?? Just make a japanese PSN account? It’s simple!

    But… It’s free or not?

  • stevenm281

    I don’t mind creating the account, but will it offer English voices and text or not?

  • There’s not enough time to do one for the US. I can wait. At this point it’s just a matter of days.

  • NoctisStrife87

    Ainda bem que a minha jpn ta la de boa pra usar kkkkkkkkkkk.

  • stevenm281

    why? its the first part of the game, the game is finished, they can easily make it.

  • Most likely not because if you can I’m calling Tabata a fool for not bringing it overseas.

  • They should send it. But I don’t know why they didn’t. But with the game being literally days away and no save data transferring to the real game I can pass. Only thing I’m curious about is the secret prize added to the main game from playing Judgement.

  • Lord Shiru

    I don’t think so (perhaps English voices).

  • TektosBasics

    Both demos up til now had voice and subtitle options…

  • kirtanloorii

    It’s okay. With as close to launch as we are, I want the actual game to feel fresh.

  • Starlord

    Assuming it’s directly cut from the main game, I feel like it will have all Languages.

  • •december

    Wahey! Nice, Japan gets a demo… so late?
    The real thing is almost here

  • Justice V

    It’s just a secret video, nothing special like carbuncle or the police Magitek from WoFF.

  • stevenm281

    will you download it? if yes, do you think you could confirm if the option is available?

  • Artemis Polara

    Well… If it’s free… I’m playing it.
    ……Now to remember the password to my japanese PSN account……..

  • stevenm281

    I made one years ago, I don’t even remember the email or the name of the account.

  • Artemis Polara

    Wait… it’s already the 11th in Japan……. What time will it be released…?

  • stevenm281

    I think it is available already, not sure

  • Artemis Polara

    I’ve been looking and can’t find it

  • Noctis lucis caelum

    🙁

  • Artemis Polara

    I mean I found the platinum demo, kingsglaive, and brotherhood but not the Judgement disc

  • stevenm281

    It will be online sometime today then, be brave!

  • Artemis Polara

    Of course. I’m going to check back in 3 hours, give you all an update then

  • Artemis Polara

    Unless someone beats me to it of course

  • Noctis lucis caelum

    It’s been a long time coming, almost there.

    Cara crie um novo usuário no seu ps4 com localidade japonesa. Crie um email, senha e seja feliz.

  • Justice V

    Nah supposedly you get Carbuncle in the main game either way, however with platinum I think it’s supposed to unlock early (or just always there by default), plus you get to rename him to whatever you want. But that’s about it. Duscae gives nothing main game wise, just the teaser at the end, and Judgement just gives a trailer. So really only Platinum gives you anything tangible for the main game.

  • Bummer.

  • Oh damn I’m late as hell. I’m sure you found your answer by now hahah

  • NoctisStrife87

    Cara só criar uma como cria qlqer outra. Tem tutoriais na internet.
