"We're at the point where we can play the game in its entirety from start to finish," Kitade said, as translated by Gematsu. "From this, everyone on the development team can get an overall view on the game."
What this means, according to Gematsu, is that Square Enix developers are now polishing game elements and tweaking gameplay to get the game ready for launch.
"The first half of the game is finished with the quality of a final product, and you get the sense you're playing it in its final form," Kitade added.
This is no doubt good news for Final Fantasy fans, as they've been waiting years to play the final game. A firm release date for Final Fantasy XV has not been announced, but it's scheduled to launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 sometime in 2016, according to game director Hajime Tabata.
