Just watched the Prologue, I actually really enjoyed it.

Also, I just heard word of the Dawn of the Future novel that's releasing in April in Japan and we're apparently also getting it in English, I guess it covers the cancelled DLC stories? I'll take it at this point, hope it comes through.

The prologue was good, but I don't feel like his personality matches up with who he is now. Ardyn was a simple man, but now he's a madman? Like his combat banter from FFXV depicts nothing about what he is like in the Prologue. I guess I'm just nitpicking haha.

It's an interesting way to be closing out FFXV, rooting for Ardyn. ;P

Like someone said in the YouTube comments of the Episode Ardyn Prologue: the devs implemented the Romeo & Juliet elements Versus XIII originally had. I feel like Episode Ardyn itself will be a send off to the game by closing itself to Versus. Hell, look at younger Regis: he looks closer to his Yakuza design back from Versus.

Edit:

I just had a thought: Ardyn is shown using his doppleganger powers at some point in the trailers. Maybe the reason his intervention isn't recorded is because he hid his face?

Versus was more Hamlet like Lion king and Black Panther than Romeo & Juliet .

Sorry. I meant Hamlet. Also, it's kinda bittersweet that the last piece of media we're getting is Ardyn related. It sorta makes him overshadow Noctis, and make FINAL FANTASY XV all about him. What with him getting his own DLC and anime.

Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ardyn Shares A Peek At Insomnia With A Couple New Screenshots

Maybe it's the compression, and the final product may look better, but the graphics don't look very impressive:

Hmm? A chance to explore Insomnia without it being infested with demons, huh. *sigh* I'm in.

Same. Hope it doesn't leave me wanting more since this is it... But, I'm afraid it will :'(

Like I said, I think this is the Episode that is most influenced by the Versus XIII ideas. We're FINALLY exploring Insomnia, and Ardyn's story is more akin to Hamlet's than what we got in the final product of FFXV.

Probably, but according to GameFAQs, the game seems to be a tad more expensive, so it's possible this may be a longer Episode, and we may have an Insomnia equal or bigger to the updated Insomnia we got in the Royal Pack.

Wow, ok. That's pretty cool. Getting the Spider-Man vibe on this one. I was thinking it would just be a walking simulator through the city, but I'm glad to see that you can explore rooftops too.

I guess this is the vertical movement they wanted to add.

Ardyn is looking like the culmination of FFXV's gameplay. I really think FFXV deserves a sequel for the sake of reutilizing assets and giving the game justice.
