New Final Fantasy XV details have been revealed at E3 2016 this week, including the addition of Wait Mode, which allows you to pause the action combat and freely target enemies, aim magic spells, select teammate abilities, and more.

By pre-ordering Final Fantasy XV at GameStop/EB Games Canada, you’ll receive A King’s Tale: Final Fantasy XV game at launch. A side-scroller with fast-paced combat, here’s the full description:

Taking place in a fictitious 30 years before FINAL FANTASY XV, this game features retro-style inspired graphics centered around a fast-paced combat system with influences from modern gaming. The in-depth combat system blends intense attacks, devastating magic, mighty summons and unique companion attacks into a singular gaming experience through three diverse locations in the world of FINAL FANTASY XV.

Story

Restless before bed young Noctis asks his father, King Regis, to tell a fairy tale full of fantasy and adventure instead of just another generic bedtime story. Regis begins with a peaceful day being disrupted when monsters raid the royal capital, Insomnia. Young Regis, joined by Weskham, starts his adventure from the royal capital. Eventually they are joined by friends Cid and Clarus, where they travel to the plains of Duscae only to discover a mysterious cave where their enemy resides. Throughout the tall tale, King Regis and Noctis interject their own commentary, adding depth and perspective to the story itself.

Features

  • Deep Combat System – Combos, counters, and Regis’ signature “Warp Strike” combine for lightning fast real-time combat that rewards fast reflexes and smart tactics.
  • Companions – Three distinct companions offer unique and new ways to attack as well as tailored super moves that deal massive damage.
  • Magic – Ignite the battlefield, freeze your enemies, or electrify your foes with Fire, Ice, and Lightning magic.
  • Summons – Call upon epic Astral entities to decimate your foes in jaw-dropping ways.

Final Fantasy XV releases on September 30 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
