Final Fantasy is returning to its single-player origins after a successful turn towards online play with Final Fantasy XIV. Final Fantasy XV is a large, open world action games. Err, so you can go back to the single-player origins, but apparently the RPG part of the equation may be a thing of the past. Nevertheless, Square Enix is tying in the action gameplay of the Kingdom Hearts franchise and the Final Fantasy side-story Type-0.

Enter the universe of Fabula Nova Crystallis once more, the same universe where Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Type-0 are set. There should be no direct connections between the games however, but rather a similar tone and feel. Final Fantasy XV will be evolving past many of the crutches of the other games, dropping some of the more fantastical ideas and terms. The goal is to create, "a fantasy based on reality."

The story of Final Fantasy XV focuses on two nations, Lucis and Nifhelm, who have reached a truce after an extended cold war. However, as the game begins we see that perhaps the truce is not as certain as it seems. The protagonist of Final Fantasy XV is Prince Noctis Lucis Caelum, who will be journeying along with a few of his friends to regain something stolen by Nifhelm when the truce does break.

Final Fantasy is planned for release in 2015 for both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One.
