Hold on to your wallets, fans, it looks like there is another version of Final Fantasy XV in the works. Though unannounced by Square Enix, there is now an ESRB rating page up for Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition. No additional details have been given, as the rating blurb is near identical to that of the regular edition of XV, leading to some speculation about just what the Royal Edition could contain.

The popular theory is that Royal Edition is the equivalent of a Game of the Year edition for Noctis and Co, containing the DLC and upgrades that have been released thus far – Episodes Gladiolus, Ignis and Prompto as well as the multiplayer expansion Comrades. This would be similar to the already released Final Fantasy XV Digital Premium Edition which has been released with the game, a Season Pass including all DLC and a handful of in-game features and a mini-soundtrack. Numerous other DLC items could be included in the Royal Edition that has previously been released in the game's other editions – Day One, Deluxe and Ultimate Collector's.

Royal Edition could also be tied into the upcoming DLC that has been announced for release in 2018, Episode Ardyn and two other as yet unnamed Episodes. It could also be a new name for the edition to be released on PC, through Steam, Origin and the Windows 10 store, however, as the game page has been listed on Steam for well over a month, that seems unlikely.

Final Fantasy XV is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and is scheduled to be released on PC in the first quarter of 2018.
