Final Fantasy XV teases new female character

Is she Cid? Is she not? Who knows!? #jointheconversation the Japanese Internet's been having the last 24 hours!

Final Fantasy XV

A scan from a preview of Final Fantasy XV in the newest issue of Shonen Jump reveals a scant handful of new details about the game to pore over.

Chief among them is a new female character that’s shown off in the screenshot on the bottom-left side of the page. Other than her goggled getup and the fact that she’s described as a mechanic, her identity remains completely under wraps.

The screenshot to the right of her, meanwhile, indicates that the game’s car will seemingly be drivable in the game’s urban areas, too, not just the countryside as has been showcased up until now.

Finally, in the bottom right screenshot, a fight with a Titan whose foot alone is potentially enough to do in Noctis and company is depicted. As with the mysterious woman, the magazine provides little material to go off of that isn’t already visible on the page.

With Jump Festa kicking off in Japan tomorrow, it’s entirely possible we could learn more about these things soon, as Square Enix intends to discuss both Final Fantasy XV and Type-0 HD there during a livestream of another edition of Hajime Tabata’s Active Time Report.
