Final Fantasy XV Active Time Report April edition summary

Today’s Active Time Report acted more as a reflection of content shown at Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV last month rather than a deposit of new information. During the show, director Hajime Tabata confirmed Square Enix will be producing more pieces of the Ultimate Collector’s Edition, the date for Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, the next ATR and more. You can catch the full summary of this month’s ATR below.

  • Tabata couldn’t actually finish Final Fantasy II.
  • Tabata apologized about his comments regarding Final Fantasy XIII recently. He mentioned that he is a fan himself and the comment he made was meant to be a comparison between the technology FFXIII had and the one FFXV uses.
  • The teaser trailer for Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV (movie) has been viewed over 2 million times in total. Brotherhood: FFXV (anime) over 4 million times so far.
  • The team is glad they have gotten more people to know the FFXV universe now through the anime and movie.
  • They didn’t plan to do that slot machine release date reveal after the date got leaked before the event began, but they kept it because they wanted to end the show with a bang.
  • Tabata’s daughter told him that his English is terrible.
  • You don’t have to watch the FFXV anime or movie to play the game.
  • North American event director Matt Kishimoto is in a meeting in Japan right now regarding E3 2016.
  • The next Active Time Report will be at E3 2016.
  • Pre-orders for FFXV are doing better than Square Enix imagined in Japan.
  • Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV Japanese theatrical release date.
  • Justice Monsters V releases on Android next week, iOS in June and Windows 10 in Summer. 90,000 Japanese users have registered for the game.
  • Square Enix confirmed they will be producing 10,000 more Ultimate Collector’s edition worldwide for the game. They can’t promise it will arrive on the day of FFXV‘s release.
  • Tabata yet again confirmed the game will feature New Game+.
  • The Japanese commerical for FFXV that aired after the Uncovered: FFXV event was mostly made by Sony. Square Enix made the last minute of the video only. Sony re-recorded the footage of the past Final Fantasy games shown in the video and cleared any copyright connected to them.

Final Fantasy XV is set to release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 30th Worldwide.
