If you want even more Final Fantasy XV, Square Enix has you covered. A King’s Tale: Final Fantasy XV is a 2D sidescroller that will release on PS4 and Xbox One the same day as its RPG big brother.
Sqaure Enix announced the new game during its E3 livestream (via EGM). A pre-order bonus from GameStop and EB Games in North America, A King’s Tale will follow a young King Regis, the father of the main game’s protagonist. The game will give players the ability to use summons, magic, and companion attacks and will even include multiple playable characters. One such character is a young Cid.
“Restless before bed young Noctis asks his father, King Regis, to tell a fairy tale full of fantasy and adventure instead of just another generic bedtime story,” Square Enix describes the game.
“Regis begins with a peaceful day being disrupted when monsters raid the royal capital, Insomnia. Young Regis, joined by Weskham, starts his adventure from the royal capital. Eventually they are joined by friends Cid and Clarus, where they travel to the plains of Duscae only to discover a mysterious cave where their enemy resides. Throughout the tall tale, King Regis and Noctis interject their own commentary, adding depth and perspective to the story itself.”
A King’s Tale joins the Platinum Demo, the Final Fantasy XV anime, the Kingsglaive feature film, and Final Fantasy XV VR as yet another additional story set in the game’s universe. It releases on PS4 and Xbox One September 30.
