The Challenge of the Kingsglaive
By Nick Stone
Square Enix have revealed a straight to video and download tie-in movie to Final Fantasy XV that will release before the videogame this year. Titled Kingsglaive the film will be a prequel to the events of XV and as well as a trailer, Square Enix have offered more details for the film in an official statement:
"The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the hallowed Crystal, but the menacing empire of Niflheim will stop at nothing to make it theirs. War has raged between the two for as long as most can remember.
King Regis of Lucis commands an elite force of soldiers dubbed the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, Nyx Ulric and his fellow glaives stand before the crown city of Insomnia, fighting to stay the inexorable advance of Niflheim’s imperial army.
Before the overwhelming military might of the empire, King Regis can only salvage his kingdom by accepting an ultimatum—he must cede all lands outside the crown city, and see his son, Prince Noctis, wed to Lady Lunafreya, the former princess of Tenebrae now captive of Niflheim.
As the war of wills rages, the machinations of Niflheim transform Insomnia into an awe-inspiring battleground, pulling Nyx into a struggle for the very survival of the kingdom."
The feature-length movie also features the vocal talents of Luna Headey as Princess Luna, Sean Bean as King Regis and Aaron Paul as Nyx. Kingsglaive will be released by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment in 2016, before Final Fantasy XV, and will be available for streaming or download worldwide.
