posted on by Justin Piselli
Square Enix's North American YouTube channel streamed the World of Final Fantasy game's cinematic anime opening on Wednesday. Aoi Mizu (also known as mizuki from her performance of the second Aldnoah.Zero opening theme) performed the opening theme song "Innocent²," composed by Ryo Yamazaki. Square Enix will release a demo for the game on PSN in Europe, North America, and Japan on October 17 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
Square Enix's U.K. YouTube channel uploaded the same video, but the video also features a subtitled translation of the song's lyrics.
The game is slated for release in North America on October 25, in Japan on October 27, and in Europe on October 28.
Square Enix describes the game:
Two siblings journey to a mysterious land to rediscover their lost memories. In this peculiar place where stacking things on one's head is perfectly normal, the young monster tamers will encounter new friends and familiar FINAL FANTASY heroes as they learn the truth about their pasts.
The game's PS4 version will get a Collector's Edition, which, in addition to the game, contains: a pop-up book; an 80-page art book; mini-figures of Squall, Cloud, and Lightning; a 20-track soundtrack; and extra DLC. The extra DLC includes: a Sephiroth summon; Red Bonnetberry, White Chocobo and Glow Moogle mirages; and the original Japanese voice track for the game. The Collector's Edition will cost US$119.99 and is only available for the PS4 version of the game. The European Collector's Edition includes the same extras.
The game's Limited Edition for PS4 only includes a 24-page artbook and the extra DLC (Sephiroth, Red Bonnetberry, White Chocobo, Glow Moogle, and Japanese voice track) from the Collector's Edition, and retails for US$59.99.
The game will also get a Day One edition, which includes the extra DLC (Sephiroth, Red Bonnetberry, White Chocobo, Glow Moogle, and Japanese voice track) from the Collector's Edition. The Day One Edition will cost US$59.99 (or US$39.99 for the PS Vita version). The Day One Edition in Europe will feature the same extras.
