If you weren't one of the lucky few to get their hands on the pricey Final Fantasy 15 ultimate collectors edition, there's good news. The Noctis statue, featured in the bundle, will also be released as a standalone figure through. He, along side Prompto and Ignis, will run you a cool $129.00 with Gladiolus priced at $139.00. The official Square Enix site appears to allow users to add their emails to a waiting list. Last month, it was announced that Square might work on making more ultimate collection edition bundles for gamer's due to the high demand and the fact that they sold out shortly after the press conference for the title aired.
Final Fantasy doesn't just have a hill to climb, it has a mountain. According to series director, Hajime Tabata, stated in a press conference in LA following the Final Fantasy: Uncovered event, that Final Fantasy 15 would need to sell "10 million copies to recoup the investment." In a statement made to IGN, this has since been clarified as just a "high goal," for the games sales although it's hard to imagine a title 10 years in the making with an anime series, CGI film and it's own mobile game wouldn't need a large amount of sales to compensate. If Final Fantasy 15 were able to sell over 10 million copies, that would make it the second Final Fantasy title to do so, following Final Fantasy 7 which achieved the feat after re-release. A huge number for a huge franchise but it's certainly going to be able to perform well from the revenue it will pull in from it's numerous projects tied to fall release. It's also hard to imagine that a game with this much hype won't make its goal and then some being the latest entry in one of the most well known gaming franchises. Final Fantasy 15 will hit store shelves September 30th.
Square Enix delivered in full force last night at the Final Fantasy: Uncovered press conference and one of the night's biggest surprises was the announcement of a brand new, CGI film. Take a look at the King's Glaive teaser below which will be available to download later this year.
