If it were up to Final Fantasy XV Game Director Hajime Tabata, we’d see a worldwide release date for the upcoming RPG from Square Enix, meaning that those outside of Japan wouldn’t have to wait the extra few weeks or months for the title to show up.

He told this news to Mexican site Level Up, adding that it’s more realistic we’ll only see a slight delay for those outside of Japan to receive the game:

I’d like to be able to do a worldwide release. We don’t want to impose any big delays to players from around the world, so I’m hoping that everyone will be able to play the same Final Fantasy XV together within as close of a time frame as possible.

We’ll get our first taste of Final Fantasy XV gameplay inside the Episode Duscae demo, included as a code within each first-run copy of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD when it launches on March 17. As for a release date on that demo, Tabata said in his recent Reddit AMA, “We are doing are best to have the demo playable with the release of Type-0 HD, but we are still working on optimizing the system and everything, so I can’t give you a date.”

For a few other pieces of information about the FFXV demo, Tabata revealed they are planning to include it inside digital copies of Type-0 HD; they are targeting 30fps, but “it’s difficult to realize that with the graphics and features we have in the game;” and the jump feature and Phantom Sword will be available.
