Update: Final Fantasy XV won’t support character switch. Tabata apologized and said the PSN description was a mistake. The battle system was too complicated when they had the character switch system, so they decided to go with the single character experience like in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. We will be making a deep report after the official subtitled version is out to make sure everything will be 100% clear from now on.
Sony has released the latest trailers from Tokyo Game Show 2014 on the Japanese PlayStation Store. Alongside many other titles, Final Fantasy XV makes an appearance as “TGS2014 Special Trailer”. The video itself is the same but the description confirms something we have been speculating for a long time: You can actually switch party members. Here is our translation of the description:
Taking advantage of the next generation console’s specifications, characters can move around the entire screen and the traditional party battle of Final Fantasy games is evolved so you can enjoy battle even more strategically by switching party members.
