Ten Years. It’s a long time. If you were a young tween when Square Enix first announced Final Fantasy XV back in 2006 (when it was known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII), you’re likely getting ready to graduate from college.
But the epic RPG is finally available on store shelves today for the PS4 and Xbox One, and to go with it, Square Enix has uploaded a pretty impressive live-action Launch Trailer for the game. Featuring Florence + the Machine’s cover of “Stand By Me,” the trailer is meant to evoke the power of friendship and how it can help you fight any battle.
“Final Fantasy has a special place in the hearts of many and the team who worked long and hard on this project couldn’t be prouder to present Final Fantasy XV to fans around the world,” said Hajime Tabata, the game’s Director. “Today, we invite not only longtime fans but a new generation of gamers to a series beloved thanks to the engaging story telling, unique characters and captivating worlds that have become the hallmark of Final Fantasy over the years.”
A second Launch Trailer, this one featuring nothing but gameplay, can be found after the break.
