The details were shared during a presentation at Tokyo Game Show today, which was also streamed live. In addition, director Hajime Tabata also shared story details on Regis, the father of protagonist Noctis.

The events of Final Fantasy XV center around a war in the nation of Niflheim, which has taken control of the world save for one country, Lucis. Noctis and his father Regis reside in Lucis, which has maintained its independence thanks to the crystal it possesses. Regis is the current guardian of the crystal and possesses a power similar to Noctis, being able to conjure weapons out of thin air. Regis uses his power to hold up a shield around Lucis, an act which ages him. Noctis' mother passed away when he was an infant.

The presentation also shed details on female protagonist Lunafreya, an oracle who can speak to the gods. She is the youngest oracle ever, and is betrothed to Noctis. Lunafreya wields a double-sided spear, and will have a scene where she will fight.

Square Enix also unveiled the fishing and Chocobo riding features during today's presentation. Final Fantasy XV will launch simultaneously worldwide in 2016 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
