Final Fantasy 15 Royal Edition Leaks Through Ratings Board Listing

A complete edition may be on the way.

28 Comments

Despite being an obvious prospect, we've yet to see any kind of Game of the Year-style edition of Final Fantasy XV. However, it now looks as if Square Enix may have such a version on the way in the near future, if a newly published ratings board listing is any indication.

The ESRB has published a rating for something called Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition, which is coming to both Xbox One and PS4. The rating itself doesn't provide any information about what this is, instead largely re-stating what the original game's ESRB rating explained (albeit with some further specificity about the types of firearms you'll use). However, it's not hard to guess what this might be.

With all of the announced DLC episodes now available, it seems likely that Royal Edition will bundle the base game with the content released to date. XV director Hajime Tabata said recently that he hopes to release more DLC packs for the game in 2018, but with expansions focused on party members Gladio, Ignis, and Prompto having already been released, Square Enix looks to be ready to re-package the game. Given that Royal Edition has already received an ESRB rating, such a release is likely not too far off.

As of yet, Square Enix has not made any official announcements about Royal Edition. We've followed up with the publisher and will report back with any details it shares. We do know that the company's plans for Final Fantasy XV this year include the much-anticipated PC port. The company has also teased that 2018 will be a "big year" for the Final Fantasy franchise.

@Verhoven: So you mean exactly like how Skyrim released just a vanilla game on-disc first (2011), then released DLC 2 years later (2013), then re-released the game as a "Legendary" Edition with all DLC & a new difficulty (2015), and THEN recently re-released again as a "Special Edition" with better lighting effects (2017)?

They didn't plan all the DLC content in the beginning, my friend.

Yeah, that totally makes sense considering that they're planning to release more dlcs and even updates for the story for at least another year. Looks like the game will never reach a finished state but they're releasing a complete edition anyway.

@dcoutten: I caved some time ago at around that price point. What a waste of time and money that was. Not to mention that I actually feel bad for supporting this game with my money.

Make a version of the game that's actually good and I'll look into it.

It's probably just a Console Port of the upcoming Windows Edition.

@lorddaggeroff: Don't kid yourself, the game's still just as bad as it was at launch. All those updates didn't really add anything to the game and the 1-2 hour long character dlcs sure didn't. But maybe you'll enjoy replaying the endless amounts of extremely boring and repetitive hunting quests from the main game with your friends. Yeah, that makes them so much better.

@Atzenkiller: The games not out yet, yes I'd agree it would be a terrible game if I beta tested it, but when it has (the Witcher type dlc, all content everything) type of goty edition(by no means is it Witcher.) It will have everything while also being on pc.

Just like operah Winfrey standing up for what's right.

Gamers reunite for beta gamers, let's show them support for playing games because it's them who give us goty editions.

@lorddaggeroff: You sure like to talk a lot of crap but whatever, enjoy your crappy game with all the worthless dlc and updates they've added to it. I'm sure it'll be much more enjoyable than it was for everyone who bought it earlier simply because you paid less for it.

@Atzenkiller: First of all I haven't played it, second of all it will be a complete game, third of all I'll have the option for pc and console available with all dlc.

Yes I would be annoyed to rushing in buying it, I said it back in 2016 November: wait til the game fully releases.

But you purchased it and regardless of it being bad or good it's you who I should thank.

The beta gamer.

@lorddaggeroff: And like I said, enjoy your shitty game. You're welcome. Ignore what the beta testers told you about it, act as if you were one of them instead.

@Atzenkiller: Your forgetting something here, who bought the game on day one?

Same applies for destiny, division, Witcher 3, hitman.

Those games wouldn't have full complete releases with out you (the day one beta gamer) who companies look to for funding.

Oh imagine if you and your beta gamer friends reunited we wouldn't have that problem to begin with.

Yet more games will release and more of your friends will buy those beta games.

Thank you beta gamer from the bottom of my heart.

You know... I think I'm going to stop buying any game at launch since there will eventually be a GOTY edition that will pack in all the DLC on the disc.

It doesn't make any sense to buy the incomplete version when I can wait.
