Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ardyn Prologue Teased

After Final Fantasy XV’s director left the project, Square-Enix announced that almost all of the planned DLC would be cancelled. Only one additional chapter, “Episode Ardyn” is still coming to the game. As implied by the name, this chapter will focus on the main antagonist of Final Fantasy XV: Ardyn Izunia, and it will serve as a means of filling in the blanks of what exactly he was up to while Noctis and his crew were running around doing their thing. Square-Enix also announced a companion anime for this DLC, and finally released a brief teaser for it today.

Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ardyn Prologue takes place before the events of Final Fantasy XV and follows Ardyn as devolves from a decent man into the mad villain seen in the game. The nature of his connection to Noctis is also supposed to get further exploration and explanation. No release date for the anime has been announced yet, but one would think it’ll drop before the release of Episode Ardyn  in March 2019.

Final Fantasy XV is available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Check out our review for a refresher on what the game is like.
