It appears as if Square Enix is looking to re-release Final Fantasy XV later this year for the PS4 and Xbox One versions. The ESRB has now rated a version of the game being dubbed as the ‘Royal Edition’.
The game has been rated T for teen. Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition’s content descriptors say “Language, Mild Blood, Partial Nudity, Violence”.
The rating summary says: “This is an action role-playing game (RPG) in which players control a prince and his friends as they attempt to save their kingdom from evil forces. From a third-person perspective, players move around battlefields and city environments, perform various quests, and battle an assortment of human and fantastical enemies (e.g., demons, titans). Characters use swords, guns (e.g., pistols, machine guns, rocket launchers, sniper rifles), and magic attacks (e.g., exploding fireballs, blasts of ice) to defeat soldiers, monsters, and oversized animals in frenetic combat. Fights are highlighted by cries of pain, dramatic light effects, explosions, and realistic gunfire. A handful of cutscenes depict characters impaled on swords; one cutscene involves a woman being stabbed off-screen; another scene depicts a character with a bloodstained wound. During the course of the game, some female characters are depicted topless, with breasts that lack discernible details (i.e., no nipples). The word “sh*t” appears in the dialogue.”
The Royal Edition of the game could possibly be a version of the game that includes all of the previously released DLC packs. This is handy since buying the game separately plus the Season Pass costs more much than $59.99.
We will probably hear more news on Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition later this year. Aside from the PS4 and Xbox One, a version of the game is also coming out on the PC via Steam later this year too.
