A new Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV trailer has been released! Take a look at the trailer below:

Via ANN , the text reads:

“The newest work from Final Fantasy , a franchise which has sold over 110 million copies worldwide...Another story told within the same world, time, and place as Final Fantasy XV . Text: Everything is for the sake of the ‘Future King.’"

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is a full feature-length CGI movie announced during Square-Enix’s Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV release date event earlier this year . The English voice talent includes Lena Headey as Noctis’s fiancee Princess Luna, Sean Bean as Noctis’s father King Regis, and Aaron Paul as the movie’s protagonist, an elite Kingsglaive member named Nyx. The movie’s plot is summarized as follows:

“The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the world’s last remaining Crystal, and the menacing empire of Niflheim is determined to steal it. King Regis of Lucis commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, they fight to protect Lucis. As the overwhelming military might of the empire bears down, King Regis is faced with an impossible ultimatum – to marry his son, Prince Noctis to Princess Lunafreya of Tenebrae, captive of Niflheim, and surrender his lands to Niflheim rule. Although the king concedes, it becomes clear that the empire will stop at nothing to achieve their devious goals, with only the Kingsglaive standing between them and world domination.”

The Kingsglaive movie is meant to accompany Final Fantasy XV and tells the parallel story of what happens in the capital as Noctis and his friends hit the road. Final Fantasy XV ’s director Hajime Tabata is producing the film, while Takeshi Nozue (co-director and co-producer of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children ) is directing.
