New Final Fantasy XV Trailer Shows Female Cid, Combat, And Story

Square Enix showed a new trailer for Final Fantasy XV at the 2014 Jump Fiesta festival, showcasing lots of new details and gameplay.

In the trailer you can see some of the story setup related to government overthrow in the city of Insomnia, and we meet Final Fantasy's first female Cid, who goes by Cidney. We also see what appears to be a battle against a God of War III sized titan creature, and some inner-city exploration.

You can check out the trailer below which appeared at the Jump Fiesta Festival, an annual expo in Japan celebrating the Shōnen Jump magazine publication, which is home to many popular manga.

Along with the trailer, there was also a Q&A with director Hajime Tabata who answered a few questions about the game, but kept everything mostly ambiguous. You can find a full transcription of the panel on Kotaku. One of the biggest takeaways from Tabata is that the titan seen in the trailer is important to the game – too important to discuss in detail.

The Steam Controller Design Shows Another Tweak In Latest Client Beta

The Steam Controller continues to evolve. Earlier this year, we reported that images in the Steam Client showed that the controller can support an analog stick. Now, it seems to share another feature with other input devices.

As you can see above, the left haptic touch area appears to have a directional pad. After seeing reports of the image, we were able to find it in our own client.

Additionally, there are images that are named to indicate different “modes” of use. When it was first announced, Valve stated that the Steam Controller (and in fact, the Steam Machine itself) are designed to be customized to user preference.

The presence of this image does not indicate that Valve is abandoning its original vision for the controller. Rather, it may indicate that a more traditional D-pad will simply be an option users can install for some games.

We’ve reached out to Valve for comment and we’ll update should we receive a response. For more on the Steam Controller, check out our previous coverage. As for the Steam Machine, we expect to learn more in 2015.

Our Take
It would be wise of Valve to offer a D-pad component as an option to ease the transition to its unique input style. I’m eager to try one of these controllers to see if the haptic feedback accomplishes the goal of replicating the necessary resistance for fine control.

Pac-Man has been endlessly gobbling up power pellets for over 30 years, but have you ever stopped to think about where they all go? Inspired by the icon himself, graffiti artist Shok-1’s new print “The Consumer” finally answers this eternal question, giving us our first look at the yellow puck’s insides.
