Square Enix to hold one more Final Fantasy XV livestream in celebration of its release By Wazi the pa on November 14, 2016 at 6:01 AM

Square Enix is set to go off with a bang for Final Fantasy XV as the company announced they’ll be hosting their next and possibly last livestream event to celebrate the game’s long awaited release.

Titled “Final Fantasy XV Release Eve Official Community Program! ~Chase The Mystery Disc From Development”, the live show will take place on November 28 from 8:30 PM JST to 12:15 AM JST and will be streamed through NicoNico Live for viewing.

The livestream will feature Japanese voice actor Tatsuhisa Suzuki (Noctis Lucis Caelum) and Japanese voice actress Rina Kitagawa (Lunafreya Nox Fleuret), with Hatsune Matsushima hosting the event. Additionally, the event will also include developers from the FFXV team as well as Square Enix community managers.

The program will start things off with a showing of all five episodes of Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV, followed by a little smartphone activity, then a small play session of the “Mystery Disc”, and finally finishing things up with a good old countdown in anticipation for the game’s release.

Final Fantasy XV is due to release on November 29 worldwide for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. As always, be sure to stay tuned to Nova Crystallis for all the latest.

    “We hold this event to tell the fans that we would like to once again delay the release.”

    At this moment in time I’ll probably miss it
    There has been substantial amount of FFXV Release
    news left and right and I’ve played Judgement Demo
    I’m overwhelmed. Thanks, guys.
    Tabata you’ve done – this game will be a milestone in gaming,
    the likes of which it was always meant to be!

  • •december

    Haha, could you imagine?

  • Randy

    I cant even..

  • Randy

    I personally would like to offer my gratitude to this site. Thanks for always keep me in the update for my most anticipated game all these years. I can finally close novacrystallis.com from my quick tab after ffxv is out. Thank you.

  • •december

    I whole-heartedly agree.
    This website covered all the important updates quickly/daily for XV.
    It made the wait immensely more bareable!

  • •december

    The countdowns were ALL a lie :’|

  • D.3ND

    I’m still keeping it in quick tabs namely for VII,KH3 and XIV.

  • Wazi the pa

    We’re glad to be of help! Thanks for your gracious support!

  • Invictus

    I discovered NC just this past month. I know I’ll always keep coming back. 🙂

  • I’m having trouble aiming magic spells at foes. Some me very fast and you just end blasting allies. Can’t wait for the English text so I can make spell that have no friendly fire.

  • Felix117

    The best way i found to use magic, is to:
    While your magic is equipped, hold down the ‘lock-on’ button, and press attack(don’t hold and aim).
    This fires the magic straight at the locked on targets current location.

  • stevenm281

    I don’t think you can do a spell without friendly fire. So long as its an elemental spell, it affects the environnement, which will affect your party members.

    However, maybe playing on the Easy difficulty, prevents damages from the environnement, idk.

  • stevenm281

    With all the Japanese focused stuff as of late, it would have been nice for the launch ATR to be global, with finally a first story trailer featuring the English voice cast.

    I know I’m repeating myself, but I’d really like to have one of those trailer before the game releases, its the first time we do not have one.

  • alef321

    maybe on the full game there will be accessories that null certain magic types

  • Stonespear

    Looks a bit pointless to me. All stuff we’ve seen, and the developers will just have generic, doctored comments to say.

  • Starlord

    Overall, this is merely in celebration of there new addition to the mainline series.

  • Stonespear

    Aye, but still strikes me as pointless.

  • jack

    Pointless to you not to them, they’ve been working on this game for a decade now so a celebration is most definitely needed.

  • Justice V

    They’d then have to decide which release window to go with as time zones are drastically different.

  • stevenm281

    if its Global, you go with Greenwich time.

  • Justice V

    Think you can but only by including the healing effects along with whatever elemental spell. Only made one of those so far, so not entirely sure if it also heals teammates or just you.

  • Justice V

    Which time zone is that?

  • Xervath

    I do suppose a word of gratitude *is* in order.
    I tip my hat to you, sir. (and to this site)

  • Kris Godwin

    Square-Enix. Just… stop.

    I’m looking forward to FFXV as much as the next guy (taking a week off during Christmas break just to play it), but I can’t be the only one sick of these pretentious shows, endless multimedia tie-ins and demos with silly names?

    We get it, you’re determined to make the XV universe a ‘thing’ (Fabula Nova Crystalis 2.0). How about, instead of producing self-indulgent events (one for a date that didn’t even stick), hawking products (both in-game and real life), and fracturing content via a thousand different pre-order incentives and game versions… you, I dunno, actually focus on completing and releasing the damn game?

    I still cannot believe the thing has actually gone gold. As has been pointed out to me, Square-Enix just loves ANNOUNCING things. They announce games that are nowhere near ready. They announce events. They announce product tie-ins. Announce. Announce. Announce.

    Again, I’m not hating on the actual game (look at my pic, for goodness sake), but S-E has a serious problem with emphasising how great the sizzle is, whilst the steak itself is at risk of being undercooked.

  • Krijn van Alten

    What are they going to tell now? Just give away the whole plot?

  • stevenm281

    no idea which one it is specifically, but its the basic time.

    All timezones are calculated by the distance from Greenwich.

    If I remember correctly, EDT is -5 hours, PDT is -8 hours, etc. 0 is Greenwich.

  • Vallen

    It’s a big occasion for SE which had a rough decade with this game and
    FF in general, hopefully this title will bring the company back to it’s
    glory days. It’s a big day for the development team, who slaved away for
    the last 5 years trying to build the best game they could while
    everyone rushed them. And finally, it’s a big day for fans who waited a
    decade for this game.

  • NewestType

    Try tossing a potion in there!

  • NewestType

    I feel the same. I haven’t gotten to play a substantial high action open world game. And the fighting in the demo is fluid and more importantly fun. Regardless of what people think, the team simply outdid themselves on this one. Whether you play FF or not or are planning to play XV or not. Not recognizing the efforts is quite hard to do now. Tabata and Square should feel accomplished.

  • Sweet. Problem is how do you get lock on to happen? When I hold R1 it locks on but it releases as soon as I let go. Is there no lock on without hold the button now?

  • NewestType

    Press the R3 Button.

  • Invictus

    Look at FF7 Remake. Announced waaaay too early

  • Daniel Masterson

    yup you nailed it *slow claps*

  • Daniel Masterson

    then isnt everything pointless?

  • Miqote

    I completely agree. Far too much Media. I personally have went on media black out loooong time ago

  • Oh OK thnx

  • ThatOneGuy7895

    At this point with final fantasy xv it’s understandable. Yes they announced the game too early, but by now, especially after they pushed the release date back they need to make sure that everyone willing to listen to them knows that FFXV is coming out now, to get as much awareness as possible to get the greatest return on this huge investment.

  • Krijn van Alten

    You must better learn to spot sarcasm dear.

  • Daniel Masterson

    read poe’s law dear

  • Yuntu

    I really see no reason to complain about a release-day stream.

  • Yuntu

    I think we will get a launch trailer for multiple languages

    would be weird if SE doesn´t go all out the last days

  • Yuntu

    pro tip for the final game:

    Ignis learns a skill that teleports everyone to him

    use that

    throw magic

    result: no friendly fire

  • stevenm281

    I hope so!

  • sneur

    Anyone else got a mail that they are giving out a round two of ultimate collectors edition?

  • •december


  • Othermind
  • thnks yo!

  • Shinobuden

    They’ve invested so much time and money into XV that they pretty much have to. They really need this game to sell well and that means they need to get as much attention to it as possible no matter how minuscule it is.

    Eh. SE has been doing it this way for ages. It’s their M.O and complaining about it now won’t make them stop.

  • Stonespear

    If you say so. They’re welcome to it of course, just as I said it seems a bit pointless to me.

  • Shinobuden

    So them celebrating a game that took 10 years to finish with one more livestream is pointless? Wat?

  • stevenm281

    that’s my point! they shouldn’t be doing it in Japan!

    They kept on talking about the importance of Global, how important is it for them to finally release titles worlwide simultaneously.

    Why make the launch event exclusively Japanese then?

    Or they could make Square Enix Japan, Europe, and North America all make a launch event for their territory, presenting a pre-recorded ATR by the development team so that subtitles in every languages are ready.

    They used to do it, I don’t know why they stopped.

  • Stonespear

    Because it’s a game. I don’t understand the need to broadcast their own celebration. Should go without saying that they’d celebrate it, just don’t see why anyone would want to watch it. You must be a little ESN if a game is worthy of celebration. It’s entertainment, not a momentous occasion.

  • Stonespear

    Glad to see someone else around here with a sense of perspective. Too much love for something that isn’t out yet, which is par for the course at the moment because SE are too busy announcing/promising.

  • Shinobuden

    A game that has been in development for 10 years. 10 years. The game has literally been through development hell, and they dragged it out from the very depths and actually managed to make something of it. It’s their most ambitious project to date so just let them do whatever they feel to celebrate without being a negative nancy. No one likes negative nancies.

    Oh I’m not going to watch it. I may be looking forward to the game but not to the point that I need to actually watch them celebrate. I’ll be doing that myself when I start up the game. You just seemed to be so against the idea of them broadcasting in celebration that I felt the need to say something.
    I’m not sure what you mean by ESN because as far as I know it stands for electronic serial number amongst other things, but I’m going to assume it’s some sort of attempt at an insult? I dunno. I’m dumb. Either way, insult or not, I’m not gonna lie and say I don’t think it’s a momentous occasion because I do. Our views simply differ there so we’re just gonna have to agree to disagree I suppose.

    I hope you enjoy the game when it’s out

  • like a new year countdown? ah makes sense….happy FFXV release day after a decade to you or whatever..XD

    No, YOU press it.
