Final Fantasy XV will be localized in Latin American and Brazilian Portuguese for the first time in the history of the Final Fantasy series, Square Enix announced.

That means that both Latin American Spanish and Brazilian Portugese will be available as text options.

Here’s a message from director Hajime Tabata:

“Thank you to all of our Final Fantasy fans in Latin America and Brazil for always supporting us. Last year I visited Mexico for the first time to promote Final Fantasy Type-0 HD.

“And through the Mexican media I could personally see the passion of the fans in Mexico and neighboring regions.

“From that moment I started thinking about how to compensate for the passionate fans in all of Latin America and Brazil. So this time, we took the opportunity to respond to his enthusiasm for Final Fantasy XV and decided to release a new version of the game with text localization in Spanish Latin American and Brazilian Portuguese.

“We think the story and one of the most important elements of the Final Fantasy games and would like players in Latin America and Brazil to be able to enjoy this story in their own language.

“Right now, we are working on the localization of these two languages along with our localization partners, and are taking care to ensure that this version of Final Fantasy XV is the best possible version of the game. So please look forward to the launch!”

Final Fantasy XV is due out for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2016.
