An exclusive new clip shared with GameSpot shows a glimpse at the level of detail to be expected from action scenes in the upcoming Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV movie. The featured scene depicts Nyx and Luna attempting to make their way through an airship, with explosions and a large octopus-like monster getting in the way. Check out the visuals in the video, which is embedded above.
Yesterday Sony Pictures released the first 12 minutes of the film. The footage showcased an impressively produced battle sequence, and more.
Kingsglaive’s main characters are voiced by actors Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings, The Island), Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad, Need for Speed), and actress Lena Headey (Game of Thrones). The movie will be released in select theatres on August 19, then digital channels on August 30. The Blu-ray disc version will be available on October 4.
Kingsglaive was well-received in GameSpot’s review. Editor Alexa Ray Corriea said, “The casting is on point, and the visuals are sharp and spectacular… As a film, audiences may have some problem chewing on what’s essentially a beautiful story dump ahead of Final Fantasy XV’s release. But as a Final Fantasy film, it’s a tribute to all who have touched this series and who have been touched by it–a labor of love for the fans who ask for more from their stories. The power and the praise that Kingsglaive lends XV’s team is well-deserved indeed.”
