Square Enix has announced Final Fantasy 15 Royal Edition will come to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One March 6, side by side with the release of Final Fantasy 15 Windows Edition . The Royal Edition features “the base game and over 20 game add-ons / DLC” as well as a slew of new features, the most exciting of which for me is the expanded map of Insomnia featuring new enemies and side quests.

Here’s the all-new features Square Enix touts in its press release:

  • Expanded Map: Insomnia City Ruins – all-new side quests and enemies such as Cerberus and Omega will be available through the expanded map of the Crown City of Insomnia. Players will also take on the Rulers of Yore.

  • A fully-controllable Royal Vessel boat , expanding the world of Eos and allowing players to explore the area between Cape Caem and Altissia. Players will also be able to fish aboard the vessel and discover new fishes and dishes.

  • A new accessory to activate the new action “Armiger Unleashed” - players will be able to unleash powerful attacks while summoning the Armiger. After collecting all 13 royal arms, players will be able to find an accessory in an unidentified part of the world, enabling access to Armiger Unleashed.

  • A new first-person camera mode, allowing players to experience the game from Noctis’ perspective.

  • More than a dozen pieces of downloadable content including weapons, Regalia car skins and item sets


  • Archive – players can review the “Cosmogony” stories scattered throughout the FINAL FANTASY XV world. Additional local myths and legends will also be placed in various new locations, allowing players to obtain more information about the world.

  • Quest to obtain and Strengthen Regalia Type-D

  • New Trophies

  • The FINAL FANTASY XV base game

The Royal Edition will also feature new box art by Yoshitaka Amano.

Though the original press release stated that Royal Pack upgrade for base game and season pass holders would be $19.99, pricing for the Royal Pack has yet to be confirmed.

With development on Final Fantasy XV DLC continuing into 2018, we’ll have to see whether or not 2019 will greet us with Final Fantasy XV Super-Duper Uber Royal Edition, with an upgrade pack for $40 instead of (unconfirmed) $20.

What do you think? Are you looking forward to Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition? Can’t wait to visit Insomnia and enjoy new recipehhhhs? Feel free to let us know in the comments section below.

Final Fantasy XV
Combat, Plot, Characters Create Something Flawed, Beautiful, Fantastic
Despite it's flaws, Final Fantasy XV is a milestone achievement: not just for being completed, but for being completed with polish, aplomb and love.
  • Engaging main cast of characters
  • Fun, fast-paced combat
  • A massive, beautiful world to explore
  • The Regalia!
  • Continuous updates have addressed some shortcomings of the initial release
  • Major aspects of the story feel rushed or absent, particularly toward the end of the game
  • Stealth sequences feel out of place
