Final Fantasy XV showcases new train station area at Taipei Game Show

Taiwanese studio XPEC providing development support.

Final Fantasy XV

Following the game’s dog cam walkthrough at Jump Festa, Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata took to the Taipei Game Show this weekend to showcase a new area of the game with a cat cam.

But before showing the new area, Tabata announced that Taiwanese publisher and developer XPEC Entertainment is one of many outside firms pitching in to help develop Final Fantasy XV.

“We’ve tasked a Taiwanese development firm to provide us with critical support,” Tabata said, referring to XPEC.

An extended version of the snowy train scene from the Final Fantasy XV‘s Jump Festa trailer was also shown.

Moving on to the new area, which is clearly still very much in development, we see what looks like the train station of a big city. Before jumping to the cat cam, we see Noctis walk into the station and take a seat on a bench. Then, using the cat cam, we’re given a tour of the station’s otherwise inaccessible areas.

The cat cam is actually XPEC’s take on Square Enix’s dog cam. The studio jokingly suggested Square Enix adopt it, since cats can reach many places dogs can’t.

Watch three versions of the Taipei Game Show showcase below. XPEC Entertainment president Aaron Hsu speaks during most of the footage.

Outside of this, Square Enix announced it will hold its next Active Time Report live stream on February 5 at 20:00 Japan time. It will include the final trailer for Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, and likely an extended, or at least direct-feed version, of what was shown at the Taipei Game Show.
