Final Fantasy 15 Update Lets You Ruin Prompto's Hobby, Take Your Own Photos

Do him proud.


Square Enix has shared new details regarding a forthcoming update for Final Fantasy XV, and not all of the news is likely to please Prompto.

On its Japanese website (as translated by Gematsu), Square Enix outlined the contents of an update arriving on January 24. Most notable is what's called a "self-photographing feature," which as you can probably work out allows you to take your own photos. It's specified that you can only do this outside of battle, so it'll still be up to Prompto to secure any mid-fight pictures for you.

The photos taken by Prompto have proven to be an unexpected highlight of the game. It remains to be seen how much control you'll have over those you take yourself.

Aside from the photo feature, the update includes additions for the free and paid holiday DLC packs. The Moogle Chocobo Carnival is opening up, and a new Noctis-only costume and a photo frame are both being added.

Square Enix has extensive plans for post-launch support, both in terms of free updates and paid DLC. An exploit recently revealed expansive areas of the game that went unused in the game, fueling speculation that it could be used in future DLC.
