While we already knew the game would have its own season pass, we weren't quite sure what it would include beyond six playable characters, two different costume color variations, and two more weapons for all six new characters. Of course, this all depends on what Square Enix considers the "newer" half of Final Fantasy games to start.

According to an ESRB entry, it's set to arrive for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and it's rated "T" for Teen. "Characters use swords, guns (e.g., pistols, machine guns, rocket launchers, sniper rifles), and magic attacks (e.g., exploding fireballs, blasts of ice) to defeat soldiers, monsters, and oversized animals in frenetic combat".

The rating summary reveals that Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition is still a traditional Japanese role-playing game, where players take control of Noctis and the rest of the boy band as they attempt to save the kingdom from the daemon scourge. The prevailing hope is that Aranea from Final Fantasy XV is the other female character being added to the roster. Considering the expansions for Gladio, Ignis, and Prompto have already been released, it is likely that Square Enix will re-package the game complete with all the DLCs.

Meanwhile, Square Enix President and CEO Yosuke Matsuda recently teased a possibly time window where they will announce the release date of "Final Fantasy 7 Remake" for PlayStation 4. People will then be able to find it on Steam.

Users will also have three background music options including he original, re-orchestrated and soundtrack versions.

Square sought to remedy some of the complaints with additional DLC and a fix-up of some of the more controversial chapters.
