Final Fantasy XV

Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata has said he wants a simultaneous worldwide release for the upcoming numbered Final Fantasy.

“I’d like to be able to do a worldwide release,” Tabata told Mexican games site LevelUp. “We don’t want to impose any big delays to players from around the world, so I’m hoping that everyone will be able to play the same Final Fantasy XV together within as close of a time frame as possible.”

A release date for Final Fantasy XV has not yet been announced. A demo will be included with Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, which launches for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 17 in North America and March 20 in Europe.
