WATCH: Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition Confirmed, PC Release Date Set
Square Enix has officially announced Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition for PS4 and Xbox One, and it has completely blown our expectations out of the water. Originally uncovered thanks to an ESRB rating for the game, it was assumed that it would be a compilation title featuring all the DLC up to this point wrapped in a neat little bundle. While this may be true, Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition also includes loads of new content, such as a new dungeon, new boss fights, new Regalia skins, and more. Check out the reveal trailer from the FFXV Twitter account below:
