The main setting of the feature film Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, it also appears at the beginning and end of Final Fantasy XV and is known as the "Crown City."

Creation and developmentEdit


Insomnia, as it appeared in Final Fantasy Versus XIII.

Insomnia was planned to appear in Final Fantasy Versus XIII, although its name was not revealed until the game was rebranded "Final Fantasy XV." Based on the real-world location Shinjuku,[1] Insomnia's royal Citadel was modeled after the Tokyo Metropolitan Government building. Since the Citadel is a palace, developers added traffic circles for cars near its entrance, as well as a red carpet for ceremonies.[2] To get Insomnia's lighting correct, Yusuke Naora, one of the art directors of Final Fantasy XV, painted over real pictures of Tokyo.[2]

In Final Fantasy Versus XIII, it was originally planned for Noctis to be at a party in Insomnia with Stella Nox Fleuret, the princess of Tenebrae. They were to be present for Niflheim's invasion of the city, but this was removed from the final version of Final Fantasy XV when it was decided Noctis and his friends would be out of Insomnia before it occurs.[3] Despite this change, Hajime Tabata promised players would still be able to fight in Insomnia.[4]

After Final Fantasy Versus XIII was rebranded "Final Fantasy XV," developers decided which elements of their original concepts they could maintain to create a unique gaming experience. The scale of their project was so massive that they eventually chose to depict Insomnia's invasion and downfall through a feature film, Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV.[5]

Etymology Edit

Insomnia is derived from the Latin word insomnis, which means "sleepless." It is the name of a sleep disorder that prevents one from falling asleep or remaining asleep as long as desired.
