Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn teases cutscenes, Odin

It has been a long time coming, but finally Square-Enix has shown off the new and improved Final Fantasy 14 game after it bombed during its initial PC release. A new epic trailer has confirmed that the game will now be known as Final Fantasy XV: A Realm Reborn.

In true Square-Enix style, the trailer is pretty spectacular as well. We would have hoped to see some actual gameplay for the re-imagined game previously known as Final Fantasy 14 2.0, but it’s hard not to admire the beauty that we’re seeing here with this cutscenes galore clip.

The trailer is subtitled the ‘Fate of Eorzea’ and we see its inhabitants fighting back against some kind of apocalyptic attack. The chocobos make their glorious return around the half way point, while you can get a sneaky look at the legendary summon Odin and his trusty horse at the 0.45 mark.

Like all Final Fantasy games, it looks amazing on first view – graphically. After the disappointment of the failed launch, gamers want to see some actual gameplay though, not a fancy trailer before they decide to part with their cash again. Don’t forget that the game is still on course for a PlayStation 3 release and Square-Enix highlights this at the end of the trailer.

What are your thoughts on a Realm Reborn? It’s fair to say that we all prefer the name change, rather than simply 2.0 right? Let’s hope that Square-Enix has got the balance right this time and that they’ll show off the first gameplay footage at the Tokyo Game Show in September.

Odin has been confirmed for the game as you’ll see in the trailer, but what other legendary summons would you like to return?
