Square Enix has let loose a breakdown of the main characters in the upcoming Final Fantasy XV and what do you know, they look and sound like many characters from the previous generations of FF games. On top of that, the plot is full of overly non-typical names and places. This is definitely Final Fantasy.
The leader of the troupe, Noctus Lucis Caelum (he'll fit right in with Squall, Tytus and Cloud) is the heir apparent to the throne of Lucis and can "see a heavenly light." But he's not the kind of guy to toe the line, oh no, he's a bit of a renegade and though "he made act brash at times, he does so in defense of those loyal to him."
His closest friend is called Gladiolus Amicitia and his other companions include Ignis Scientia, Prompto Agentum and Cor Leonis.
If you thought those names were hard to pronounce, have a go at reading the plot synopsis aloud:
"The only crystal left to the world lies in the Kingdom of Lucis. Upon striking a peace with the garrison state of Niflheim, Lucis rejoices in having at last brought the cold war to a close. Their celebrations, however, are premature. Under the guise of amity, Niflheim dispels the anti-armament runewall and launches a full-scale invasion of the kingdom. The peaceful lives Crown Prince Noctis and his entourage once knew are consumed by the flames of war as they struggle to mount a resistance."
None of the character portraits look particularly new either. They're all walking forward with their Rod Stewart hair-dos and mean looks.
And red shoe soles for some reason.
Well at least the plot sounds more mature than FFXIII's whine fest. What do you guys think?
