Final Fantasy XV Spin-Off Title Announced: A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV

The Final Fantasy XV universe has just got even larger thanks to the announcement of A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV, a retro spin-off title that will be set 30 years before the main game.

Announced during the Final Fantasy XV presentation that Square Enix kicked off their Square Enix presents with, A King's Tale will revolve around a bedtime story that King Regis is telling Noctis - another dream-based concept like Platinum Demo.

It will play as a retro-styled sidescrolling beat 'em up and you will play as King Regis as he uses many of the trademark moves from Noctis' arsenal; warp strike, parry, dodge roll and aerial attacks are all in there.

The game will be made available on the 30th of September (the same day Final Fantasy XV releases) for PS4 and Xbox One, but you will only be able to access it if you pre-order the game, and only if you pre-order through either GameStop or EB Games in North America. There's no word on the equivalent retailers in other territories yet.

More information, including the game's debut trailer, is expected to be announced at Comic Con.
