Japanese video game developer Square Enix recently announced a brand new release date for the highly anticipated Final Fantasy XV — moving its initial September 30 release to November 29 this year. Despite the unfortunate news for die-hard gamers of the celebrated franchise, a new clip of the forthcoming Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV movie was freshly unveiled. This latest video showcases the first twelve minutes of the fantasy/science-fiction film. Viewers will know a bit more about the the kingdom of Lucis and its rivaling sinister forces at the empire of Niflheim, while kudos goes out to a remarkable opening monologue by Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey.
Not only will the movie spotlight Lena Headey as Princess Luna, but fellow Thrones actor Sean Bean will voice King Regis. Moreoever, Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul will also make a 3D appearance as a fearless soldier named Nyx Ulric. As a whole, there is a lot of beautiful CGI for one to absorb with its vast array of stunning creatures and slew of action sequences.
Watch the striking opening above and expect the fantasy movie to hit theaters on August 19 with a PlayStation Store release to follow on August 30.
