It has been a decade's worth of development, but Square Enix finally was able to formally announced Final Fantasy 15 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last night at a special event. Originally, this game was announced in 2006, at the big video games convention of E3. It was then re-branded as Final Fantasy 15 in E3 2013, and fans of this particular game are devoted to its well-developed characters and mythology. Finally, here is the news about Final Fantasy 15's Release Date as well as its Deluxe Edition and Ultimate Collector's Edition.
