A Kings Tale: Final Fantasy XV

Square Enix will release A King’s Tale: Final Fantasy XV, a side-scroller previously exclusive to consumers who pre-ordered Final Fantasy XV at GameStop, as a free download for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 1 in Europe, the company announced.

A U.S. release date has yet to be announced, likely because today is a national holiday, but will probably launch a day prior on February 28, as it is the standard release day in the country. (Update 02/21/17: Square Enix of America has confirmed a March 1 North American release date.)

Here’s an overview of the title:


A King’s Tale: Final Fantasy XV is an action game with retro-styled graphics and fast-paced combat. Taking place a fictitious 30 years before Final Fantasy XV, the action centers around King Regis and his faithful companions (Weskham, Cid and Clarus) defending the royal capital from raiding monsters.

Key Features

  • Deep Combat System – Combos, counters, and Regis’ signature “Warp Strike” combine for lightning fast real-time combat that rewards fast reflexes and smart tactics.
  • Companions – Three distinct companions offer unique and new ways to attack as well as tailored super moves that deal massive damage.
  • Magic – Ignite the battlefield, freeze your enemies, or electrify your foes with Fire, Ice, and Lightning magic.
  • Summons – Call upon epic Astral entities to decimate your foes in jaw-dropping ways.
