A new trailer for Final Fantasy 15 dropped at Tokyo Game Show today, giving fans even more story details on Square Enix's highly anticipated role-playing game. Final Fantasy fans hoping to go into the game completely unspoiled might want to skip this one, because the latest look at Final Fantasy 15 centers almost exclusively on dialogue, cut scenes and important plot details.

The Japanese-language trailer, which is subtitled in English, introduces characters that players will encounter in the opening chapters of the game, according to Square Enix. Noctis and his royal bros meet the mysterious Ardyn Izunia, described as "a sinister stranger," as well as Ravus Nox Fleuret and Cid Sophiar.

There's a bit of action near the end of the new Final Fantasy 15 trailer, including what appears to be a peek at Final Fantasy 15's version of the summon Shiva. Some stills from today's trailer can be seen in the gallery below.

Final Fantasy 15 is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Nov. 29.
