Details for A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV

By Kevin Tavore,
If you love Final Fantasy XV, you've probably already got it pre-ordered. If you're in the US, let's hope that pre-order is at Gamestop (or EB Games in Canada). That's right - the prequel to the title, A Kings Tale Final Fantasy XV, is free for pre-orders and is exclusive to those retailers.


The game appears to be a side-scrolling brawler. Combat occurs in real time, and you'll be able to perform combos, counters, and the FFXV signature ability "Warp Strike." You'll fight alongside three companions with their own abilities and synergy with the main character, Regis. And of course, there will be magic and summons as well.


The story is set 30 years before the events of FFXV. A young Noctis asks his father for a bedtime story and King Regis erupts into an exciting tale of swords and sorcery as the King and his friends fight off an invasion of Insomnia. You can get a preview in the trailer, released today:

The pre-order bonus will be available on September 30th when the game releases at select retailers: Gamestop in the US, EB Games in Canada, and undisclosed retailers elsewhere.
