Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ardyn Anime Prologue Now Available (VIDEO)
The long wait for Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ardyn is nearly over, with the DLC officially releasing on March 26th. Slated as the final episodic DLC for Final Fantasy XV, Episode Ardyn will help tell the untold story of antagonist Ardyn Izunia, whose real name was revealed to be Ardyn Lucis Caelum.
Leading up to the release, Square Enix revealed that a special prologue anime for the DLC was to be released to help gamers get up to speed on Ardyn’s story. Now, that anime has finally released and is now available to be watched for free on YouTube. Interested: Check out the full thing below:
The anime is certainly an enjoyable one, if brief: the runtime is a short 13 minutes. The important thing is that it sheds some new light on Ardyn’s admittedly tragic story. One interesting, unexpected bit of new footage was the chunk of DLC gameplay shown after the credits rolled for the anime. Without giving anything away, the titular character in Episode Ardyn looks to be going up against some old foes when he begins his quest for vengeance, with one particular fight only being possible thanks to the power of the crystal kept in Insomnia.
In terms of gameplay, Ardyn seems to be as overpowered as can be imagined given his god-like abilities. This in turn should lead to players enjoying their time as one of the Kings of old, with players even getting the chance to square off against Ifrit once more.
Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ardyn launches for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on March 26th, 2019.
