Square Enix announces Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition

Tom is probably best known for the 15 years - FIFTEEN YEARS! - he spent at Eurogamer, one of Europe's biggest independent gaming sites. After working his way through the ranks, Tom was Editor-in-Chief over there between 2008 and 2015, before leaving to join Riot Games and work on League of Legends editorial.

These days he writes for a bunch of different places, including AllGamers, where you'll often find him pitching in with news, writing lengthy retro features, and trying to convince us to publish yet more articles about his beloved FIFA Ultimate Team. He can give up any time he wants, it says here.

You can reach Tom through tom.bramwell@allgamers.com and he's also on Twitter.

New features include the ability to drive the royal boat.

If you've been putting off buying Final Fantasy XV, then Square Enix hopes you will change your mind on March 6 when it launches the new Royal Edition of the game for PS4 and Xbox One, featuring buttloads of new content.

Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition will add all sorts of things to the already expansive RPG, including a new dungeon (Insomnia City Ruins: Expanded Map), a first-person mode, new gear, new bosses, Armiger Unleashed (an unlockable, "more action-oriented" mode of the Armiger), and the option to drive the Royal Vessel boat (and explore the body of water between Cape Caem and Altissia).

Phew. You'll also get all the existing Season Pass content - Episode Gladiolus, Episode Prompto, Multiplayer Expansion: Comrades, and Episode Ignis - plus various other bitty pieces of DLC that add weapons, Regalia car skins, and item sets.

If you already have Final Fantasy XV, Kotaku reports you'll be able to get your hands on the Royal Edition content for $19.99.

All in all it sounds like a pretty good deal, although if you literally just bought the original game the other day because you missed it the first time, you may now be filled with regret. (Grrr.)
