Final Fantasy XV is already one of the most anticipated games of the year. Now you’ll have a chance to play more than just a game. You can also watch an animated movie related to the game. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Square Enix are working together to make Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy VX.
Kingsglaive, which is slated to be available on Blu-Ray discs and as a digital download this fall, will follow a war that is raging through two kingdoms, Lucis and Niflheim. Lucis is home to a sacred item known as the Crystal, that Niflheim wants to control. A bunch of soldiers known as the Glaive will fight to keep control of the crystal.
The film has a fairly impressive voice cast including, Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones), Lena Headey (300, Game of Thrones) and Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad.)
Besides the tremendous cast for the animated film, Florence + the Machine have come on board to provide music for the Final Fantasy XV game. That music will be a cover of the song “Stand By Me,” originally performed by Ben E. King.
“I’ve always seen Final Fantasy as mythical, beautiful and epic,” said Florence from Florence + The Machine in an official release. “‘Stand by Me’ is one of the greatest songs probably of all time and you can’t really improve on it, you just have to make it your own. For me it was just about bringing the song into the world of Florence and the Machine and the world of Final Fantasy.”
Final Fantasy XV the game is slated for release on September 30. No exact release date was given for the film.
