E3 2016: Final Fantasy XV
This year’s E3 was no exception when it came to new info on the upcoming new Final Fantasy 15 game.
SquareEnix hosted a special stage presentation where FF15’s game director Hajime Tabata show new gameplay and introduced the new “Wait Mode”. This new mode would assist the player to gain a more strategic advantage by pausing the action and marking your opponent, a feature Hajime hopes would give a player not yet familiar with its combat system and easier playstyle. That is just one of many new announcements, gameplay videos, and trailers released on behalf of SquareEnix.
