Here's the Real Reason Final Fantasy XV's Cast Is Dressed In Black

Written by Lauren — 22 Oct 2015

Director Hajime Tabata is taking full advantage of the Official Forums for Final Fantasy XV and has added yet another little tid bit of information regarding the game and his choice to deck the characters out in black.

According to Tabata, the outfits worn by the four leads are actually battle gear from the Kingdom of Lucis. Their outfits also represent each characters' station within Lucis so there's that as well.

Black has been an important color throughout Lucis' history so those of the royal family and those who are closely tied to them all wear back as a base color.

Tabata also revealed that the team is working on making the 4 leads' clothing provide special battle effects.

Final Fantasy XV will be present at Paris Games Week, however, Square Enix have announced that the game's presentation at the event will only offer a recap of previously announced information.
