FFXVheaderFinal Fantasy XV has finally gotten a release date… And a Full-length feature film, new demo, anime series, a mobile game and 2 deluxe editions.

Last Night’s Uncovered: Final Fantasy event gave us more than we hoped for. There’s a lot of Final Fantasy coming our way this year, thank you Square Enix.

Hironobu Sakaguchi took center stage to open up the show to talk about how he’s looking forward to Final Fantasy XV becoming a challenger yet again. Then there they featured a brand new trailer titled Reclaim Your Throne. The trailer showed off new combat and a brand new rendition of the classic song Stand by Me -sung by none other than Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine -, which is the theme song to Final Fantasy XV. Watch this special Japanese Final Fantasy XV trailer.

After that they showed some all-new gameplay featuring chocobo riding, updated battle mechanics, magic, and how Titan is summoned.

Final Fantasy XV is getting its own anime series. Dubbed Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV, the series is a prequelto the game and delves into the extraordinary friendships between Crown Prince Noctis and his three comrades. The series will consist of five, 10-minute-long episodes on Youtube.

The series is being produced by A-1 Pictures, a Japanese animation studio best known for its work on series like Sword Art Online and Black Butler. Brotherhood won’t be the studio’s first video game adaptation, either, as A-1 has previously made anime series based on games like Persona and Valkyria Chronicles. According to Square Enix, the story of the new anime will tie directly to the latest demo for the game, which itself tells a story separate from the main FF XV.

You can watch the first episode above, while future episodes are expected to launch ahead of FF XV‘s September 30th release.

But wait. There’s more. Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy, a fully CG movie was announced! Blurring the lines between animation and reality, Kingsglaive tells the story of Nyx — a member of the elite armed forces, the Kingsglaive. The movie features an all-star voice cast. Aaron Paul, Lena Headey, and Sean Bean. Watch the trailer below.

The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the world’s last remaining Crystal, and the menacing empire of Niflheim is determined to steal it. King Regis of Lucis commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, they fight to protect Lucis. As the overwhelming military might of the empire bears down, King Regis is faced with an impossible ultimatum – to marry his son, Prince Noctis to Princess Lunafreya of Tenebrae, captive of Niflheim, and surrender his lands to Niflheim rule. Although the king concedes, it becomes clear that the empire will stop at nothing to achieve their devious goals, with only the Kingsglaive standing between them and world domination.
