Lots of Final Fantasy XV news has flooded the internet following Square Enix’s ‘Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV‘ event held in Los Angeles yesterday, March 30th.

One of the most exciting is the announcement of a free Final Fantasy XV Platinum Demo for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

In the demo, players will take on the role of Noctis during his childhood, as they are guided through a dreamscape by a small creature called Carbuncle, a reference to a summon featured in many entries in the franchise.

As Square Enix has stressed, the Platinum Demo is intended to show off the game’s graphics and to introduce players to combat and magic systems indicative of the final release.

Upon completion of the demo, players will be able to name the cute Carbuncle character and have the option of importing him into the final release of FFXV as a useable summon. Carbuncle will be an exclusive summon available only to those who have completed the Platinum Demo.

Check out our coverage of the ‘Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV‘ event for a full rundown of all the trailers released including the announcement of a brand new Final Fantasy XV anime titled Brotherhood.

It was also revealed that players can enter to have a chance to win a one of a kind Final Fantasy XV themed Xbox One.
