Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, an animated film that runs parallel to the early events of Final Fantasy XV, released last month to a relatively positive reaction from fans, extolling the film as an absolute visual spectacle. For an animated film, that honor is due to the hard work of its animators. One group that worked on the film, Digic Pictures, is actually quite renowned for their skills in trailer production for games, having previously worked on the Assassin’s Creed series. Now, Digic Pictures has returned to the world of Final Fantasy XV with a new trailer titled “Omen.”
Seeing as this trailer is actually more of a short film, we highly recommend you watch the five-minute video rather than let it be spoiled by the text that follows. To continue,
Omen is intended to be King Regis’ (Noctis’ father) horrific vision of the future that led into the events of Kingsglaive. This actually makes the film a prequel of sorts. It can be a little tough to follow, as it portrays Noctis falling through floors, riding on trains, and following dogs straight into completely different scenes. However, it is all done quite beautifully and culminates into what is a pretty solid motivation for Regis’ actions in-game and in the film. It is definitely one of the best trailers for the game to date.
But what do you think of the trailer? Does it get you more excited for the game? Let us know in the comments below!
