Final Fantasy XV Director Explains the Main Party's Clothes
Has there ever been a more stylish military?
10.25.15 - 9:43 PM

The main cast of Final Fantasy XV has a very distinct look. The all-black Tokyo street fashion aesthetic of Noctis and friends has raised a lot of eyebrows and Director Hajime Tabata has taken to the game's official forums to explain the reasons behind the unique design.

FFXV Main Party Black Clothes

"The clothing worn by the four main characters is the official battle gear of the Kingdom of Lucis," Tabata explained. "Noctis is a member of the royal family and the other three characters are parts of various Lucian national organisations and they are each wearing the specific battle dress relevant to their individual stations. In the Kingdom of Lucis where our heroes reside, the colour black has historically been treated as a special colour. Because of this, the attire of the royal family and those in occupations closely tied to them are unified by having black as a base colouring. This part of the lore is the reason why the outfits of all four main characters are black. For the finished game we also intend on having their clothing having effects in battle and not just being a part of the world and its background. So watch out for that too!"

So, there you have it. They aren't in a boy band, they are displaying their national pride. Final Fantasy XV is aiming for a 2016 release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
