It looks like fans will get a new way to enjoy Noctis’s adventures!
Last night, Square Enix hosted their ” Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV” fan event in Los Angeles. During the presentation, presenters Greg Miller and Time Gettys revealed that the game will finally hit retailers on September 30. The title began development in 2006, under the title Final Fantasy Versus XIII.
More relevant to our interests, though, is the fact that a five-episode prequel anime series is in the works. A-1 Pictures is producing the title, titled Brotherhood Final Fantasy XV.
The series is slated to stream in subtitled format on both Crunchyroll and YouTube. As of press time, Crunchyroll is offering the series in all territories outside of Japan, China, French-speaking territories, and German-speaking territories.
Crunchyroll describes the series as follows:
BROTHERHOOD FINAL FANTASY XV is a new anime series consisting of five standalone episodes. BROTHERHOOD delves into the extraordinary friendships between Crown Prince Noctis and his three comrades, setting the stage for the adventure players will set out upon in the action-packed RPG.
The first episode, which follows the early events of the previously released Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae, hit the web last night. You can check it out below:
A sixth episode will also be produced, though it’s currently slated to be a Blu-Ray exclusive.
