How long did you wait for Final Fantasy 15? Fans initially expected the game to take a certain direction when announced, but have since had their expectations simultaneously dismantled and exceeded by the latest offering in the franchise.
When all is said and done, this version – and its accompanying game for mobile, A New Empire – may endure as the very best installment among dedicated FF players, as well as those experiencing Final Fantasy for the very first time.
Noctis, Prince of Lucis
Final Fantasy 15 sees us taking on the role of Noctis, Prince of Lucis. His goal is to encourage peace between Lucis and their rivals, the Niflheim Empire with a marriage. Of course, he can’t confront evil alone, so he’ll need the help of his buddies Ignis, Prompto, and Gladiolus.
This is where the game begins to captivate the player. It depicts this with all of the lightheartedness and minor travails that come with being penned up in a car or campsite with your friends. It’s a nice complement for what’s to come later.
But that doesn’t mean you should be lazy during the less intense beginnings of the game. Your ability to rest, as well as eat the best foods prepared by your friend Ignis, contribute to your stats and ability to level up.
While players are drawn in by the camaraderie and familiar human elements of the game, it’s still the battle portions that have garnered notes of improvement from previous installments. That, as well as the fact that you can start quests much earlier on, have made game play a joy for many.
Real-time and collaborative battle strategies converge for an experience that stands in stark contrast to the battles of Final Fantasies past, and is sure be one component that makes this a gaming experience you’ll remember for a long time.
Final Fantasy 15: A New Empire
And the fun doesn’t stop there, when you download the Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire, for mobile. When you step into Final Fantasy 15, you dive straight into a kingdom-building game, a gaming genre which has dominated mobile for some time.
Building up your kingdom is essential when you, as Noctis, begin to go to battle. Unlock weapons and troops in this stunning multiplayer adventure that truly exemplifies the advancements made in mobile gaming.
And just like the console version, A New Empire is great for beginners who are new to the franchise, or this type of gaming in general. The tutorials and tips provided are thorough and ensure you aren’t left in a lurch during gameplay.
For this game, joining a guild will be necessary. You’ll get extra perks, especially if the guild is active, and see the rewards get better and better as you go along.
So, is Final Fantasy XV a sentimental journey, or the gold standard in RPG battle gaming? It’s both, when you get lost in both versions of this highly anticipated fifteenth installment of the fantasy/sci-fi franchise that defined the genre.
