The Tale of the Chosen King, Savior to the Star.

After years of fighting, the nations of Lucis and Niflheim at last agree to an armistice.

As a symbol of this promised peace, Noctis, crown prince of Lucis, is to wed the Lady Lunafreya of Tenebrae.

The prince sets forth for his wedding on the eve of the signing ceremony, sent off by his father, King Regis.

    This looks horrible… Absolutely horrible…

    This isn’t ‘chibi-style’, this is how hell looks like.

    Poor Gladiolus got the Knuckles treatment.

    This is still the stupidest idea I’ve ever seen. And for that, Japan will probably love it.

    Looks like that shitty game playstation home.

    This should have went to the 3DS

    It’s hard not to look at every inch to see how it looks. It’s not pretty, but it’s mesmerizing in a way.
    I’m whilling to see this as something good because Final Fantasy has been too sterile for a long while now, everything about the games look like Squeenix jerking themselves off to their own legacy. This is different, not good but different.
