It turns out that Prompto, the fresh, innocent, Michaelangelo of the Final Fantasy XV crew, is deep down inside a gun-nut with a lot of blood on his hands. That’s all we can make from this latest trailer for Final Fantasy XV’s next DLC, which stars Prompto trying his best to audition for a role in Metal Gear Solid V.
Under his watch, Final Fantasy XV morphs right in front of our eyes from its usual battle system into a straight up, down the iron-sights and over-the-shoulder third-person shooter. I’m not making this up one bit. Check out the trailer above and see where Tabata and his team are taking this game next.
Had this been any other release, I would be thinking “What are they doing?!” However, Final Fantasy XV has earned the right to do whatever it wants because regardless of whether an addition works or not, Square Enix sticks to its guns and makes no apologies for how absolutely ridiculous this game is.
I love every second of it, as well. Final Fantasy XV, I salute you to this very day. Don’t ever change your ways, you wacky beast.
Prompto’s DLC will be released on June 27 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
