Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy 15 gets chatty in latest look

Japanese fans can see it in theaters this summer

Square Enix is gearing up for Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy 15's Japanese premiere on July 9 by releasing new footage from the animated film. Japanese entertainment site Natalie uploaded two separate videos comprised of clips from Kingsglaive, featuring the first time we hear the characters' voices.

The trailer below (which is, despite the thumbnail, a different video entirely from the one above) gives a brief tease of what's to come in the computer-generated movie.

A recent update to the movie's website detailed these characters in depth, including bios alongside stills. Now, in the lengthier clip at the top of the page, fans can actually listen to King Regis Lucis Caelum and his cohort, such as Nyx Ulric and Lunafrena Nox Fleuret. The characters speak only in Japanese for now, but the English voice cast will feature well-known actors like Sean Bean, Aaron Paul and Lena Headey. The English-language release will launch later this fall.

First detailed at the Uncovered: Final Fantasy 15 event in March, Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy 15 tells a parallel story to the series' upcoming fifteenth entry. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One game, launching Sept. 30, stars Regis' son Noctis as he escapes his homeland and future kingdom. He's starring in his own animated adaptation of the game: Brotherhood, an anime prequel.
