    I remember before the game came out, when it was shown that only Noctis would be playable in combat, but that each of the others would get their own DLC, thinking that eventually you would be able to switch between them once all the DLC came out.

    Thankfully I waited before buying the game. Heck, I’m still waiting, but I’ll probably pick FFXV up when there’s a good Steam sale price.

    Yoko Taro working on FF is a big news of its own, dunno how this lone wolf would work in way bigger team now. How his crazy ideas would be discussed and implemented in a bigger game than anything he worked on before!
