Square Enix debuted a new trailer for its upcoming role-playing game, Final Fantasy 15, during a special event tonight. The trailer for the game, which is confirmed for a Sept. 30, 2016 release, focuses on the cast and the combat of Final Fantasy 15.

Final Fantasy 15's latest trailer shows never-before-seen gameplay, as well as the reveal of the game's version of the recurring summon, Titan. The trailer is narrated by King Regis, father of protagonist Noctis, and includes music from the game's composer, Yoko Shimomura.

The trailer also features the musical stylings of Florence and the Machine, who covers Ben E. King's classic, "Stand by Me."

"I've always seen Final Fantasy as mythical, beautiful and epic," said singer Florence Welch, in a release. "‘Stand by Me' is one of the greatest songs probably of all time and you can't really improve on it, you just have to make it your own. For me it was just about bringing the song into the world of Florence and the Machine and the world of Final Fantasy."
