Today we found out Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is coming along well and will be released sometime in 2015 and Hajime Tabata also shared some new tidbits on Final Fantasy XV.
While Tabata compares Final Fantasy Type-0’s story to a war movie he later says Final Fantasy XV is a little different comparing it to a road trip kind of movie and adventure that focuses primarily on brotherhood.
Also, considering Type-0’s remaster is coming out in 2015 and one of its purposes is to “introduce” and led fans to buy a PS4 or Xbox One before XV comes out, that may hint that we won’t see Final Fantasy XV until 2016.
Anyways, no matter how much this means we will wait, stay tuned for more info since TGS is just around the corner and we’re still looking for the promised update “later this year”.
Lightning’s journey was over and after it was previously announced that FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0 HD was coming to the west , we decided to take on a new project. We’ve been working very hard on the next news blog that will help you find anything related to FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0 and we hope you pass by and follow us! As always, you can also find news on our twitter account.
We are excited for you to join us in our wait towards learning more about the world of Orience and becoming Agito.
Executive producer Shinji Hashimoto mentioned events other than TGS like SDCC and Gamescom. SDCC is the next big event after E3 and this means that we’ll get new information as soon as next month on the 27th.
When asked if Final Fantasy XV would be at E3 a few days ago in Thailand, Shinji Hashimoto said
We would like to keep it secret. It’s just only a few months from now. I’m pretty sure you will be surprised.
Actually it is not only in June, there will be many events from now on such as San Diego Comicon, Tokyo Game Show and others. (x)
If this means the game will be at E3, we still don’t know. The fact the he also points out other events, including TGS (which is more likely to be there), may well mean the opposite.
Also, there’s a little bit of new footage of gameplay you can watch here. It’s just an extended version of the E3 gameplay trailer and doesn’t show anything new.
There has been a rumor about Final Fantasy XV getting a release date and a new trailer at E3 this year. Take it with a grain of salt since it’s part of an unofficial “preview” instead of an official statement.
At this point, it’s still not confirmed if Final Fantasy XV will be present at E3 2014.
Release date is still TBD.
Thanks to this YouTube video, a pretty accurate translation of Omnis Lacrima's lyrics has been provided. The user notes that it's not exactly a word by word translation, you can read more from the video's description.
I rewrote the lyrics below, italicizing the English translation:
Dormit deus faciunt. Dormit perpetua.
Our master has succumbed to endless sleep.
Dormit domine. Nobis caelum som - Somnus caelum ignosco.
With him sleeps power. Sleeps our beloved sky, begging for forgiveness.
Auroram videre potest?
Can we once again see the dawn?
Deus dormit in voc suci. Liberi ini et sabe en pacum.
Defeated, our master sleeps and calls his children through his dreams.
Mane tempus expergiscendi. Etagen veni omnia dividi.
Behold the day of glory, at last awakened by the whispers of dawn.
Icor possit fabris tori alu yatrae corun dea.
Know that we will fight. We are protected by our goddess.
Mane tempus expergiscendi. Etagen veni omnia divi ex.
Behold the day of glory, awakened. The coming danger divides us all.
Liberi… et liberi ignem faciunt.
The children… and the children have lit a flame.
Requiensa vide ende! Omnia sangvinem!
For our master to find his peace. All is stained in blood!
Rest in peace!
Aeterna volutu deus somnus.
Eternal, tormenting in his sleep.
Like Somnus, there are strong hints in the lyrics that point towards Bhunivelze, the main god in the Fabula Nova Crystallis mythology. If you are knowledgeable with how the mythology was used in the XIII trilogy, this can be easily seen. Also, if the lyrics are truly very accurate, then the goddess mentioned should be pertaining to Etro, the fal’Cie goddess.
