Final Fantasy XV Titan Battle E3 2016

Square Enix took that stage to show off with Mathew Kimishono and Hajime Tabata, showing off a combat demo for Final Fantasy XV for the first time.

Kimishono is excited to show how fast and fluid Final Fantasy XV is, compared to previous FF titles. The battle itself is a massive fight between the protagonist Noctis and his entourage taking on a giant titan, showing off some fluid combat dodges as Noctis tries to climb the Titans grasping hand. Shades of Shadow of the Colossus can be seen in the design of the battle, including some QTE events and button taps to take the monster down.

During the fight, enemy soldiers also began pouring into the battle arena, creating a three-way fight between Noctis and his party and the Titan. Ultimately, the Titan saw his limbs frozen by ice bombs, with Noctis hitting the killing blow for good, bringing the Titan to its knees.

The combat in Final Fantasy XV is quick and fluid, requiring players to do their best to dodge and defend against massive attacks instead or take a beating in the meantime. 

Final Fantasy XV will be released on September 30th of this year. Find more of our E3 coverage at our E3 2016 Coverage Hub.

Update: The gameplay demo has been posted. The name of the demo is called the "Trial of Titan."
