Square Enix has recently held a panel at Comic Fiesta 2014 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The History and Future of Final Fantasy panel which also included Producer Shinji Hashimoto and Lead Game Designer Wan Hazmer, revealed several new details about the upcoming Final Fantasy XV. Some of these details can be found listed below:
- Malaysian tradition plays an important role in the town of Lestallum, which is the one shown in the Jump Festa trailer. The suburban look is similar to Kuala Lumpur.
- Some artwork of the city of Lestallum and its NPCs was showcased (including a hotel room where Noctis can stay), alongside footage of some of the actions NPCs can perform there. They can prepare Malaysian food, an element inspired by Hazmer, who is Malaysian himself.
- The Malaysian food in the game is teh tarik, satay and roti canai.
- NPCs in the city will be unique.
- Ignis is the one doing the cooking at the camp-site, and will prepare meals depending on the ingredients given to him.
- Day/night cycle is set at 60 minutes in real time. 40 Minutes day, 15 minutes night.
- Titan cannot be summoned, but summons will be available in the Episode Duscae demo.
- The game will include: day/night cycle, an “unique weapon system” and summon system. Weapons will provide different move sets.
- If you don’t camp, you cannot level up.
- Is Stella Nox Fleuret still in Final Fantasy XV? “No Comment” (Hazmer laughed while responding to this question).
There is still no confirmed release date for Final Fantasy XV, but it is widely expected to be released in late 2015.
