Tabata Offers New Details On FFXV Magic, Female Characters

Square Enix hasn't been shy about sharing details regarding the upcoming Final Fantasy XV.

They still don't want to give away the store, though.

In a new interview with The Examiner, game director Hajime Tabata addressed a few topics, including the magic systems in the game and the important role of certain female characters. When asked about the kinds of magic that would be on display, Tabata replied:

"The first is a very generic magic system that is used by people around the world. The second one is a very specific discipline of magic, which is only allowed to be used by people within the Royal family itself."

He didn't go into specifics (again, not giving away the store), but it's still an intriguing setup. Concerning the role of female characters, Tabata said there will be a "lot" of them, despite the fact that the core party is entirely comprised of men:

"There are quite a lot of female characters the guys will meet along the road they take and they really enhance the story, and perform a lot of different roles in the story, not just as love interests but other ways as the story progresses."

One example is Cidney, essentially a female version of the iconic series character. Maybe there will be a love interest or two as well...? Wouldn't be FF without a little romance, right? And if you're looking for more info, stay tuned early next year.

Final Fantasy XV is scheduled to launch some time in 2016; rumor has it that it might release around the same time as Persona 5.

It's already been made fairly obvious where the romance story's gonna be.

Will they at least be guests of the party? I'm not really into a buncha guys just cuz hey if I'm investing time in a grand adventure they should be a part of the story of the party, part of the fight, on your team. Imagine FFVII with Cloud, Barrett, Red, and Vincent. Yick.

...I know what you're thinking but Cid wouldn't have gone along with that setup :)

At least the character designs in FFVII were grittier, though. I still think Vincent is one of the best character models ever made in games.

He was an interesting dip into goth/vamp culture at the time. He should have helped in Advent Children, what a drama queen. :)
