The Final Fantasy: Uncovered live event, was insane. I can barely contain my excitement for both Final Fantasy 15 and the incoming universe that will be expanded upon in the leadup to the release of the game.

A game that has been in development for 10 years, deserved a big announcement and Square Enix delivered arguably the biggest, most impressive and most enjoyable single game conference that I have ever seen.

All in all, there were 14 major announcements to be ‘Uncovered’ during the event.

1: Hironobu Sakaguchi

The creator of Final Fantasy live on stage. Had a few words to say about Final Fantasy 15.
 

2: Trailer

A brand new trailer for the game, showing off some never before seen footage.
 

3: Artwork

Gorgeous artwork by Yoshitaka Amano, rendered into 3D. Quite a beautiful piece really.
 

4: Music/Stand by Me

A cover of the song Stand by Me, which was featured in the trailer outlined in the 2nd announcement, was sung by Florence and the Machine. We also receive a special message from Florence herself.

8: Kingsglaive.

A feature length CGI movie that tells the story of King Regis (Noctis’ father) and takes place during the main storyline of Final Fantasy 15. Regis is in posession of the last remaining Crystal, and the evil empire wants that crystal for what I assume to be nefarious reasons.

10: Kingsglaive Voice Cast

We are introduced to Luna, who is voiced by Lina Headey. She introduces Sean Bean who plays King Regis. Then all of a sudden, Aaron Paul walks out on stage to huge fanfare. He plays the role of Nyx in Kingsglaive.

Aaron Paul explains he was drawn to Final Fantasy 15, because it contains blue crystals. The crowd has a chuckle.
