Fishing and Chocobo Gameplay for Final Fantasy XV, New Story Details

Square Enix has revealed the latest gameplay and some new information for Final Fantasy XV during their Tokyo Game Show 2015 Active Time Report.

The game will let players rent out chocobos for up to 30 days. You can hit the jump button while riding a chocobo, and while jumping if you press jump again you can attempt to fly in the air, but only for a little while. When you dismount your chocobo, it will follow you for a short period of time. Unfortunately, you cannot raise or breed chocobos.

Fishing can be performed in a wide variety of aquatic locations, of varying sizes. You can select different rods, as well as bring your catches back to back to cook up into a meal.

You can find a breakdown of the rest of the new information below:

The Niflheim Empire has managed to conquer the world – save for the Kingdom of Lucis. This small kingdom has managed to remain independent by defying the empire, by utilizing the crystal’s power.

King Regis is the current guardian of the crystal, and just like Noctis, he can also summon weapons from thin air. He fought alongside General Cor and Cid in his younger years.

However, due to his using the crystal to form a magical shield around the kingdom, he is rapidly aging.

Lunafreya is a beloved “oracle,” a person with the capability of communing with the gods. She’s also the youngest oracle in history. She holds a mysterious spear – its uses are currently unknown.

Luna dwells in Tenebrae, a semi-autonomous city that is still under Niflheim control. Her city is granted some independence due to her position as an oracle. Luna is strong-willed, even when completely surrounded by Niflheim soldiers.

    A promise is simple and yet powerful enough to be the important thing for the game story , and it is to marry each other when they became adults … :v

    This all sounds lovely so far. I really hope Gentiana is this lovely lady. Seems like she could be.

    Why’s N Sync fishing? The story reminds me of FF12.

    Everything sounds hideously dull and less dynamic compared to the XV introduced to us in the E3 2013 trailer. Gone are the dark connotations associated with Lucis, and Stella and the dynamic gameplay to be replaced with a more generic story and middling combat, because apparently the mainline games HAVE to conform to a certain formula. God, why couldn’t Nomura stay on the project? Everything was looking fine in the 2013 trailer before they gutted everything good about it. Only good thing about it now is the Luminous Studio Engine and Armiger.

    He can make items appear out of thin air. That surely has to include dildos.
