Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV Launch Trailer Shows Off Fishing Action

Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV is finally available for PlayStation VR owners. To celebrate the occasion, Square Enix has released a new trailer that shows off the fishing action that players can expect from the spin-off. Give it a watch if you’re interested in picking up the newly released title.

For more on the virtual reality title, check out my Monster of the Deep review. Here’s what I had to say about the new Final Fantasy XV spin-off:

If you’re more of a competitive angler, then there’s plenty of tournaments to partake in. These timed-affairs are introduced early on in the story—where the player goes head-to-head against Noctis—and are then unlocked for online play. These time-sensitive competitions are won by catching the most fish (in terms of combined weight), so players will have to find the right balance between finding the spots with big fish, and getting consistent bites. Just like real fishing, simply getting one whopper of a fish isn’t going to win you a tournament if it took nearly your entire time to reel it in.

It’s undeniably a weird package, but Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV manages to make its eccentricities work for it, rather than against it. Not only is it the best fishing game I’ve played in virtual reality, but it’s also a true delight for Final Fantasy fans. Getting to see these iconic characters and creatures in a new way is simply fascinating, and it has me delighted at the prospect of future Final Fantasy virtual reality titles.

Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV is available now.
