Final Fantasy 15 update roadmap confirmed, includes new characters and cutscenes

Square Enix has outlined its post-launch support for the recently launched Final Fantasy 15, which includes a number of additional cutscenes and new playable characters.

According to a translation by Final Fantasy Network, Final Fantasy 15 Game Director, Hajime Tabata, has short, mid, and long-term update goals for the critically acclaimed JRPG over the next few months. See below for full details on some of the Final Fantasy 15 updates that are coming our way.

Short-term goals

“First, we will update the experience of Chapter 13’s gameplay. For that reason, we are undertaking many enhancements such as increasing the power of the ring’s magic. We will inform you of the details of updated content at a later time."

Mid-term goals

“Updating the production of the second half of the game, further enhancing the experience of the story. For example, we are planning to add event scenes where ‘What happened to Ravus?’ was from. In addition to the event scenes, voice responses and localisation work to all languages will occur so we will work firmly on this as a mid-term goal. Details of the plan will be announced once it’s decided.”



Long-term goals

“We will make it possible to use important characters that appeared in the main game as playable characters. We will also consider adding an avatar system to create original characters. In addition to this, we will continue to actively update so that various players can enjoy Final Fantasy 15 for a long time.”


“After clearing the game, you can carry your progress into a New Game. Finishing it at a low level, an invincible suit, we will offer various items that extend the range of play. Fonts displayed can be enlarged for easier reading.”

The Final Fantasy 15 released date was November 29 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game proved an instant success, shipping five million copies in its first day on sale while debuting at no.2 on the U.K. All Format Chart. It later emerged that the PS4 version of the JRPG significantly outperformed its Xbox One counterpart, making up 79 percent of physical sales.
