Final Fantasy XV Mod Brings 1997 Retro Visuals To The Game (GALLERY)
Many Final Fantasy fans have wondered what it would be like to see the characters of some of the later games in the series portrayed in the same art style as that of 1997’s Final Fantasy VII, blocky polygons and all. Now, for better or worse, there is a Final Fantasy XV mod that does just that to our beloved Prince Noctis. Available for Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition (Steam), the 1997 Retro Noctis Outfit dials the visuals back to a more, erm, blocky time, and honestly it makes Noctis pretty scary. Check him out in all his polygonal glory below:
Oddly enough, the conception of the idea for Noctis originally came from a Twitch Q+A session with Noctis voice actor Ray Chase, wherein he was asked what kind of outfit he would like to see for Noctis. “It would really [be] cool if you could make him like Final Fantasy VII style, the blocky characters,” he responded. Naturally, the person that asked him the question is none other than the creator of the mod, Kyriya, so she created it.
Kyriya has created other equally impressive – and less scary – mods for Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition, including a Chef Ignis Outift, a Lifeguard Gladiolus Outfit, and Pocket Edition character models for all the members of the boyband, for those looking to get their chibi on while still enjoying the true, full version of the game. Kyriya’s library of mods can be found here.
Final Fantasy XV is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
