What is It?
Kingsglaive is the CGI tie-in movie to Final Fantasy XV, and its story is set before the events of the game itself. The voice actors for the characters in Kingsglaive are different from the ones that will be featured in the game, which is set to launch this September.
While it’s not necessary to watch the movie to fully understand the lore and plot details of Final Fantasy XV, Kingsglaive will provide more information about the kingdoms of Niflheim and Lucis. The movie is meant to give you a deeper understanding of the relationship between these two kingdoms, as well as the personality of King Regis (Noctis’ father), and other key characters that will show up in the game.
The events of Kingsglaive will also serve as a lead-up to the story and development of Final Fantasy XV itself. So if you want the complete picture, you might want to consider catching the movie, as well as the short anime series, Brotherhood, that’s been uploaded to YouTube.
