Square Enix has released a brand-new trailer for A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV, a 2D side-scroller included with pre-orders of Final Fantasy XV... should you order from Gamestop. The game is set 30 years before the events of Final Fantasy XV, and tells the tale of a young Kign Regis as he battles monsters that are invading Insomnia, via the medium of a bedtime story being told to Noctis. You can check out the trailer and an official synopsis below.

Taking place in a fictitious 30 years before Final Fantasy XV, this game features retro-style inspired graphics centered around a fast-paced combat system with influences from modern gaming. The in-depth combat system blends intense attacks, devastating magic, mighty summons and unique companion attacks into a singular gaming experience through three diverse locations in the world of Final Fantasy XV.


Restless before bed, young Noctis asks his father, King Regis, to tell a fairy tale full of fantasy and adventure instead of just another generic bedtime story. Regis begins with a peaceful day being disrupted when monsters raid the royal capital, Insomnia. Young Regis, joined by Weskham, starts his adventure from the royal capital. Eventually they are joined by friends Cid and Clarus, where they travel to the plains of Duscae only to discover a mysterious cave where their enemy resides. Throughout the tall tale, King Regis and Noctis interject their own commentary, adding depth and perspective to the story itself.

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.

  • Magic Ignite the battlefield, freeze your enemies, or electrify your foes with Fire, Ice, and Lightning magic.

  • Companions Three distinct companions offer unique and new ways to attack as well as tailored super moves that deal massive damage.

  • Summons Call upon epic Astral entities to decimate your foes in jaw-dropping ways.

This looks like a pretty nifty pre-order bonus, and I'm kind of hoping that A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV will be widely released in some capacity in the future. Rest assured that RPGFan will continue to provide you with the latest news on all things Final Fantasy XV.
