Leak, 3/30/16 at 2:08 p.m.: Final Fantasy XV will launch for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 30, a GameSpot video (now private, backup here) published ahead of Square Enix’s “Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV” event tonight has leaked.

Gematsu exclusively shared news of the September 30 release earlier this month.

A new demo, which first leaked this morning, will be available today, where you control a younger Noctis as he journeys through a dreamscape. According to Square Enix, the demo is meant to show off the game’s final visuals and combat system. If you finish it, you’ll get an exclusive Carbuncle summon for use in Final Fantasy XV. It’s actually the only way to unlock Carbuncle in the full game.

The official announcement is expected at tonight’s “Uncovered” event, which will be held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles at 7:00 p.m. PT / 10:00 p.m. ET.

Thanks, NeoGAF.
