Square Enix has released a brand new E3 2016 trailer for Kingsglaive Final Fantasy XV, their upcoming movie set in the world of FFXV.
While the initial reveal back during Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XV reveal had me pumped, the latest trailer has left me a bit cold with its odd cuts and voice acting. On a visual level, Kingsglaive looks like everything I could have ever wanted from a Final Fantasy movie.
The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the sacred Crystal, and the menacing empire of Niflheim is determined to steal it. King Regis of Lucis (Sean Bean) commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, Nyx (Aaron Paul) and his fellow soldiers fight to protect Lucis. As the overwhelming military might of the empire bears down, King Regis is faced with an impossible ultimatum – to marry his son, Prince Noctis to Princess Lunafreya of Tenebrae (Lena Headey), captive of Niflheim, and surrender his lands to the empire’s rule. Although the king concedes, it becomes clear that the empire will stop at nothing to achieve their devious goals, with only the Kingsglaive standing between them and world domination.
Kingsglaive Final Fantasy XV is coming to select theaters nationwide on August 19th.
