Square Enix is set to release 'Final Fantasy XV' on September 30th, and tonight there is that free 'Platinum Demo' for PS4 & Xbox One. But at the same time, Square Enix is also working on not one but two promising movies to go with the game 'Kingsglaive' and 'Brotherhood.'
The more promising of the two movies has to be 'Kingsglaive.' Not only does it have Sean Bean, but it looks excellent. It's a prequel, and I'm hoping to will help fill in some of the story blanks that have appeared in previous demos.
From Squaree Enix,
KINGSGLAIVE features an all-star cast, including Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones) as King Regis, Lena Headey (300, Game of Thrones) as Princess Luna and Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) as Kingsglaive soldier Nyx.
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.
BROTHERHOOD FINAL FANTASY XV™ is a new anime series that consists of five standalone episodes that delve into the extraordinary friendships between crown prince Noctis and his three comrades, setting the stage for the adventure players will set out upon in the action-packed RPG. The first episode is available now to stream on YouTube. Subsequent episodes will be released before the game’s launch. All episodes will be free.
And here is the first 'Brotherhood' epsiode:
