Previously, the only way you were able to get the side-scrolling mini-game A King’s Tale with Final Fantasy XV was by pre-ordering it. But Square Enix is looking to fix that in a big way.

The publisher has confirmed that the mini-game will be available for all players to download starting March 1st. And better yet, it’ll be offered free of charge. Previously, it was only available as a pre-order bonus to GameStop consumers.

The game takes place 30 years before Final Fantasy XV events unfold, with King Regis and his loyal buddies – Weskham, Cid and Ciarusdoing battle with various monsters. The features are as follows:

  • Deep Combat System – Combos, counters, and Regis’ signature “Warp Strike” combine for lightning fast real-time combat that rewards fast reflexes and smart tactics.
  • Companions – Three distinct companions offer unique and new ways to attack as well as tailored super moves that deal massive damage.
  • Magic – Ignite the battlefield, freeze your enemies, or electrify your foes with Fire, Ice, and Lightning magic.
  • Summons – Call upon epic Astral entities to decimate your foes in jaw-dropping ways 

We’ll let you know as soon as the game becomes available, but, yes, it’s definitely worth booking a trip back to this wondrous retro land. Check out the trailer below!

Final Fantasy XV is now available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
