Square Enix’s A King’s Tale: Final Fantasy XV will be available as a free download for everyone starting March 1, the company announced today.
What was once a pre-order bonus through Gamestop, this gives a nod to the old-school side-scrolling game, which features a fast-paced and deep combat system.
The game focuses on King Regis and his companions. Story-wise it takes place 30 years before Final Fantasy XV.
