New info released on Final Fantasy XVEdit

June 4th by Keltainentoukokuu

In today's Active Time Report 6.0 on Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata talked about the upcoming update for Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae demo, and the process of transforming the original Final Fantasy Versus XIII project into the current Final Fantasy XV.

Stella Nox Fleuret who had originally appeared as a foil to Noctis will not appear in the game, being replaced by another character seemingly based on her: Lunafreya Nox Fleuret. The developers wanted to keep Stella but struggled to fit her to the reworked storyline and thus ultimately decided to cut her.

The originally envisioned opening that had been shown in a trailer for Versus XIII where Noctis would meet Stella at a party is also cut, as changes have been made to the sequence of events: Noctis and his friends are to depart Insomnia before Niflheim attacks, but the reason for this was not revealed because it was considered a spoiler.

Tabata also answered to some further concerns fans had raised on the Episode Duscae demo on the sound effects and background music, saying that the sound effect system is in development, and that there will be background music in the final game, unlike in the demo. Underwater combat is unlikely to be on the game due, but the team wants to include the scene with Leviathan as seen in the E3 2013 trailer.

A free update for the Episode Duscae demo will come June 9th, which should fix many of the complaints fans had raised based on player feedback Square Enix collected after the demo's release. The aim is to let players try the latest version of the game and see the improvements first-hand.

Final Fantasy XV will skip E3 but will feature heavily in Gamescom in August.

APRIL FOOLS - Final Fantasy Wiki Partners with SE; Website RebrandingEdit

April 1st by Drake Clawfang

This has been brewing for several months now, and we're ready to make an announcement to the community. The Final Fantasy Wiki is partnering with Square Enix to become an officially endorsed Wiki! We're very proud of this development and the hard work and commitment our community has put into making us such a prestigious site that has caught Square Enix's eye and made this partnership a reality.

Moving ahead, there will be various changes being made to the website to reflect this partnership. Square Enix has indicated they will designate an official liaison from their company's staff that will be joining the community under a new staff ranking, Ambassador, and they will serve as our contact to communicate with the company as a whole.

However, the greatest impact will be on our coverage. The Final Fantasy Wiki's staff has long discussed how our coverage of the series would be affected by this partnership, and both Wikia and Square Enix have been a part of those discussions. After careful deliberation, we reached a decision that the Final Fantasy Wiki is being rebranded "The Lightning Wiki," with a focus on the Lightning Saga. Secondary coverage will go to Final Fantasy Type-0, Final Fantasy XV, and any future titles that fall under the Fabula Nova Crystallis banner. Some aspects of our Wiki's design will be changing shortly to reflect this shift in coverage.

Games and other media not a part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis collection will be deemed "Legacy Content" and moved to a new website, "Final Fantasy Archive," which is being finalized to launch in May. This Legacy Content will be moved back to the Final Fantasy Wiki later in the year under a new "Legacy" namespace which will have customized coding to optimize the page display for mobile browsers. A revamped Final Fantasy Wiki app for smartphones will launch at the same time as the restoration of Legacy content. The app will be free to download and will allow users to browse and edit the Wiki under their current username, with the option to pay a $2.99 US monthly fee for access to image uploading and page preview.

We thank our community for their support and understanding during this time of transition, and ask you please be excited for what we have in store.
