E3 2013 presented some of the most dazzling trailers we’ve clapped eyes on in recent years, though if there’s one game that prompted not only rapturous applause from attendees but depicted some truly jaw-dropping footage too, it was Final Fantasy XV.

Yep, the game formally known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII finally reared its head with a new name and a noticeably more action-oriented focus in terms of general gameplay. Developed by Square Enix’s 1st Production Department, FFXV is being directed by series legend Tetsuya Nomura and shifts the series into action-RPG territory, featuring fast-paced realtime combat and flashy acrobatics.

The game will now be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One – and from the trailer, it’s abundantly clear that this is a next-generation Final Fantasy title. Featuring silky-smooth gameplay, stunning visuals and adrenaline-pumping combat, FFXV’s debut trailer is the very personification of eye candy.
