We have less than a month to go before we’ll finally learn Final Fantasy XV’s release date. Rather than simply announce the date, Square Enix plans to reveal it at a special event called Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV.
Announced at the end of January, Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV will be held on March 30 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, at 7:00 PM PT/10:00 PM ET. It will be hosted by Greg Miller and Tim Gettys of the Kinda Funny video show.
Fans can attend the event in person if they have a ticket and photo ID, and everyone else can catch the live stream on Twitch or Youtube. Tickets sold out almost immediately.
In other words, Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV will be much more than a release date announcement. Whatever Square Enix plans to do, it’s worthy of an auditorium and live stream. Even for a game as hotly-anticipated as Final Fantasy XV, a release date alone wouldn’t deserve that much.
The official site, which also has a countdown running to the event, promises “new information on the game as well as key surprises.” That’s an exciting claim, and it also says the event should last about 1-2 hours.
With this much build-up, what can we expect to see? A sooner release date than fans expected? We know Final Fantasy XV will be released sometime this year, but many people assume it will be late 2016. Perhaps we won’t have to wait that long. New gameplay? The system has been revamped from what was originally seen in the Episode Duscae demo, and perhaps they’ll showcase it at the event.
Yet the mention of surprises suggests it might be more. Unless unexpected changes have been made, a look at the gameplay wouldn’t be a surprise. Whatever these surprises are, we look forward to learning about them.
Maybe they will introduce new characters? Take a closer look at the villains? Introduce a special bonus included with the first run of the game, much like Episode Duscae was a bonus with Type-0? Perhaps the surprises are something we never even thought of.
What do you expect to see at Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV—and what do you hope to see? Let us know in the comments!
