Yesterday’s hour of footage from Final Fantasy XV showcased a new magic element that fans were struggling to place. Thanks to a new trailer from Square Enix, we now know that this element is a spin on the franchise’s classic “Death” spell.
And what a fitting animation, too. Nothing flashy besides rays of pink and purple, and then…nothing. No corpse, no blood, no undead monsters or scythes, just, nothing. Straight up banishment to the afterlife. Those unfortunate enough to be caught in the small implosion are not outright killed, but they scatter from an invisible shockwave.
In addition to the magic spell, the trailer also shows off a few new areas in the game.
Final Fantasy XV will launch for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Nov. 29.
