Square Enix just released a bunch of info (and photos!) of their upcoming CGI film, Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV. AND IT IS LOOKIN’ REAL SWEET! Check it out!
As mentioned in my long-ass post about the hype surrounding Final Fantasy XV, the film will revolve around the King of Lucis, Princess Lunafreya, and the Kingsglaive soldier, Nyx.
Nyx Ulric is the main character of the CGI film and one of the members of the “Kingsglaive”. (I assume it’s some sort of private militia that works under King Regis) He was saved by King Regis in the middle of war when he was a child and has since felt indebted to the king. He is an excellent soldier and holds close connections to the magic power of the royal family.
An Oracle gifted with the capability to commune with the Gods, Lunafreya Nox Fleuret is determined to use her power to purify the world. She is Noctis’ childhood friend and supposed fiancée but the plot of FFXV deemed her with a different path. (If this is Squenix’s twisted way of creating a love story, we all KNOW how that’s gonna end.)
Drautos is the commander of the Kingsglaive guards and quite looked up to by those he leads, most especially Nyx, who considers him as his “master”.
The emotional one in the group with a bright personality, Libertus Ostium is a close friend of Nyx’s. They also come from the same hometown.
Luche Lazarus is considered the leader of Kingsglaive. He gained his companions’ trust due to his show of intelligence.
One of the characters who can use grand magics, Crowe Altius was an orphan who now considers the Kingsglaive soldiers as her family.

Though I’m not a huge fan of political plotlines, Kingsglaive is interesting to me because it’ll provide more information about the actual FFXV game. AND can we just all gape at the fact that it looks wonderful? I bet it’s a glorious feast for the eyes and I can’t wait to see how they’ve modernized and incorporated classic Final Fantasy elements into a full CGI film.
I know there are reservations about this because many people have been complaining about Spirits Within and Advent Children. Apparently they lacked the distinct Final Fantasy feel in them. I can’t really say much about Spirits Within because I’m not as fond of it. But I was glad that Advent Children was released. Because much like AC, Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is supposed to serve as a hype supplement to the main game, to tie things together (hopefully), and, of course, to tide hungry fans such as us over as we wait for that highly-anticipated release date. HAHA.
Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV will be launched sometime in 2016. It will get a theatrical release in Japan on July 9, 2016.
