FINAL FANTASY XV

First Look at New Final Fantasy XV Concept Art – the City of Insomnia

Kingsglaive

It’s been over a year now since the Final Fantasy XV Universe was unleashed into the world, including the game, the anime series and the full length film – Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV. After that the universe has expanded from VR / mobiles games to crossover events in games like Tekken 7. Today, we are getting the first look at new concept art created for Kingsglaive.
.
The newly released concept art features daylight, evening and night cityscapes of Insomnia before and after the destruction caused by the imperial invasion.  In one of the artworks, you can see the memorial plaza where Kingsglaive traitors and Glauca pursued Lunafreya Nox Fleuret and Nyx Ulric in order to get the royal ring that commands the power of the crystal. To fulfil his duties as a glaive, Nyx puts on Ring of the Lucii – knowing fully of the huge sacrifice he is about to make. Granted with otherworldly powers, Nyx fends off Glauca and takes command of the Old Wall to protect the city from the Niflheim’s deamons – resulting in a gigantic battle throughout Insomnia. In other works, you can also see the outer side of the city showing the new wall and constructions of the expanding city.

Behind these artworks is a concept design and visual development studio – Pixoloid Studios – based in Budapest, Hungary. Their key task in the Kingsglaive project was to help the production team at Puppetworks Animation, Square Enix and DIGIC Pictures by providing detailed concepts of the city scenes. The studio worked on establishing environments, detailed textures and showing light references to help the art department build up the environment in this style and visual language.

About Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV
.
Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is an animated film produced by Square Enix and directed by Takeshi Nozue. The film is part of Final Fantasy XV Universe, a multimedia project based around the game. The main protagonists are from the Kingsglaive, an elite combat corps who wield their king’s magic fight to stay the inexorable advance of Niflheim’s imperial army. Before the overwhelming military might of the empire, King Regis can only salvage his kingdom by accepting an ultimatum — he must cede all lands outside the crown city, and see his son, Prince Noctis, wed to Lady Lunafreya, the former princess of Tenebrae now captive of Niflheim. As the war of wills rages, the machinations of Niflheim transform Insomnia into an awe-inspiring battleground, pulling Nyx into a struggle for the very survival of the kingdom.
