After a decade of waiting, the long awaited Final Fantasy game Final Fantasy XV (previously called Final Fantasy Versus XIII) is finally released. With many promotional videos, anime, movie and apps and delays, Final Fantasy XV brings the fun and enjoyment for those who have waited for a long time. In this review, I will be discussing the gameplay, story and value and let you know if this game is worth buying. I won’t be spoiling the story here so don’t worry. Final Fantasy XV is owned by Square Enix and the game is available for PS4 and Xbox One.
Five years after the events of Dragon Ball, martial arts expert Goku is now a grown man married to his wife Chi-Chi, with a four-year old son named Gohan. While attending a reunion on Turtle Island with his old friends Master Roshi, Krillin, Bulma and others, the festivities are interrupted when a humanoid alien named Raditz not only reveals the truth behind Goku’s past, but kidnaps Gohan as well.
With Raditz displaying power beyond anything Goku has seen before, he is forced to team up with his old nemesis, Piccolo, in order to rescue his son. But when Goku and Piccolo reveal the secret of the seven mystical wish-granting Dragon Balls to Raditz, he informs the duo that there is more of his race, the Saiyans, and they won’t pass up an opportunity to seize the power of the Dragon Balls for themselves.
These events begin the saga of Dragon Ball Kai, a story that finds Goku and his friends and family constantly defending the galaxy from increasingly more powerful threats. Bizarre, comical, heartwarming and threatening characters come together in a series of battles that push the powers and abilities of Goku and his friends beyond anything they have ever experienced.
This is a special unboxing post of the video game I preordered Final Fantasy XV Deluxe Edition for the PS4. This was originally planned for the official release, November 29, 2016, but things got too busy at that time. So this may be late but I will be showing you what the Deluxe Editon has and what it looks like compared to the standard version. This game is also available for Xbox One.
