Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV Global trailer
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Square Enix have unveiled Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, the fully CG animated movie slated to premiere this fall. Based on the cinematic and game phenomenon, the highly anticipated movie will be released worldwide as a cross-media collaboration with Final Fantasy XV, the upcoming sequel to the successful gaming franchise.
The film will open in select theaters in North America on August 19, followed by a digital release on August 30 through various streaming and digital download outlets. The PlayStation Blog post confirmed that the film will be available on PlayStation Video.
Here’s the official synopsis:
The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the hallowed Crystal, but the menacing empire of Niflheim will stop at nothing to make it theirs. War has raged between the two for as long as most can remember.
King Regis of Lucis commands an elite force of soldiers dubbed the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, Nyx Ulric and his fellow glaives stand before the crown city of Insomnia, fighting to stay the inexorable advance of Niflheim’s imperial army.
Before the overwhelming military might of the empire, King Regis can only salvage his kingdom by accepting anultimatum—he must cede all lands outside the crown city, and see his son, Prince Noctis, wed to Lady Lunafreya, the former princess of Tenebrae now captive of Niflheim.
As the war of wills rages, the machinations of Niflheim transform Insomnia into an awe-inspiring battleground, pulling Nyx into a struggle for the very survival of the kingdom.
Check out the Trailer:
“Kingsglaive stands on its own and can be enjoyed without knowledge of the previous games. But if you play Final Fantasy XV there are many references in the game that you wouldn’t necessarily understand without watching the film. Kingsglaive depicts the events that lead into the game’s story, starting with the main character — Prince Noctis’ father, King Regis — fighting the enemy Empire.”
