And now a Message from Hajime Tabata:

“Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata couldn’t make it for this Active Time Report, and instead had a message for those watching the event.

There are only two more days left before the launch. Coming this far, we have overcome many things. Thanks to my steadfast colleagues, I was able to work on this project without having even a millimeter of regret.

We were able to achieve results that greatly exceeded our personal capabilities, with my colleagues, the stakeholders, with all the partners and all the fans. This is my “FF15 team”.

This team is my pride. Let’s all celebrate the release date with all of our colleagues who have worked for this game together. Let’s celebrate November 29th with all the stakeholders, the partners and all the fans. I’m looking forward to meeting those who will come to Yodobashi Akiba at 8:15 on the release day. For those who cannot come, let’s meet together through the game.

One more thing. I’m sorry that I can’t attend the last ATR before the release. This isn’t the last ATR though right?? Let’s have one final special after the release!”

Final Fantasy XV will release on November 29, 2016 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
