Deploy the Glaive!
Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is the CGI tie-in movie that covers the events that occur right before those of the main game. The movie launched in Japanese theaters last month, and will be coming to North America (in some select theaters as well) digitally and on Blu-ray. Here’s a new TV commercial for the movie to get you hyped for it. You can check out the commercial down below.
There’s no new footage that we haven’t already seen, but everyone’s favorite purple octopus, Ultros, does show up again at the end of the commercial. While the movie seemed to be pretty well-received in Japan, it has a score of 8% on Rotten Tomatoes right now, which is, frankly speaking, quite appalling. It’s likely a good ‘video game’ movie that serves its purpose of introducing you to the Final Fantasy XV universe, but viewers should probably not go in expecting a masterpiece in a technical sense.
Kingsglaive will be made available digitally and on Blu-ray in North America on August 30.
