The Final Fantasy XV trailer that Square-Enix released in September during TGS 2014 was definitely one of the highlights of the show. It was a gorgeous, fantastic tone-piece that highlighted XV’s cast, road-trip sensibilities, and battle system. But what would the next chapter in the series be like if instead of being on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, it were on the original PlayStation?
Animator Mark Jenkins posted a handful of animated GIFs on his tumblr The Regressor that answers that exact “What if?” scenario. The animations take the characters and events of the TGS trailer and place them into a strange, blocky world that hearkens back to Cloud and company’s adventures in Final Fantasy VII. Take a look at the three GIFs below.
Apart from releasing the trailer TGS, Square-Enix announced that fans who purchase Final Fantasy Type-0 HD on Xbox One or PS4 when it’s released in March will receive a download voucher for a playable demo titled Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae. As a final treat, check this rad boxart for this imaginary game.
