Now Playing: Final Fantasy XV: Platinum Demo

The purpose of the demo, according to Square Enix, is to give players a look at the finished game's visuals, as well as introduce them to the final combat and magic systems. After completing the demo, players will be able to assign a name to Carbuncle and then use him as a summon in the main game of Final Fantasy XV. Only players who complete the demo will get access to Carbuncle, and the name they give him will carry over to the final game.
