How to Find the Powerful Secret Weapon in the New Final Fantasy XV Platinum Demo

The newest playable teaser for Final Fantasy XV is short, but it still has a few cool things secreted away inside the dreamscape of young Noctis. The best thing players have found so far is a weapon that makes the final boss fight a breeze.

Obviously, spoilers if you haven't played the FFXV Platinum Demo yet.

How to Find the Powerful Secret Weapon in the New Final Fantasy XV Platinum Demo

The last confrontation in the Platinum Demo has the younger version of lead character Noctis transforming into his older self and facing off with a massive Iron Giant enemy. The older Noctis has the skills players will be using in the final game, including the ability to warp, which lets him teleport and lodge his weapon into specific spots in the environment. This talent lets you explore the higher planes of the Citadel area where the fight happens and is the key to finding the Cross Shuriken.

This video by Cypronis shows how to get up where the Cross Shuriken is hiding.

Once you get it, it can be pretty devastating when used the right way. Here's a video on TMT1022's channel where the player doesn't take any damage at all.

We'll see if the Cross Shuriken is still this strong when Final Fantasy XV comes out this September.


    This would be nice if the boss wasnt stupidly easy in the first place, as it's pretty much hold circle ad nauseum...or indeed if the demo didnt suck ass. Literally everything that was wrong with the first Episode Duscae was still present in Platinum even after a year of working on it! How, after 10 years of development, do they STILL have frame rate issues on graphics that look like they were created for the PS3? I might forgive that if they actually zoomed the camera out slightly so you can actually see what you're doing half the time...

      graphics that look like they were created for the PS3?

      I generally avoid name calling, but you sir are a banana!

    Man, this demo is fun. It's like Kingdom Hearts only they've fixed everything that is wrong with it.

    Great graphics, lovely animation & I'm really digging the little bonuses that are given if you take the time & really explore the maps properly.

    Controls are different to what I'm used to but easy enough to pick up.

    So much fun, can't wait for the full release :D

      I'm with you brother; I loved this demo and am now hugely hyped for the game. Oh and release date a week before my birthday? Guess what just went to the top of my wish list!

      Now to the secret item discussed in the video. If you make any effort to collect crystal shards during your playthrough, the pressure plate that is actually unlocked in this secret area is the 'other' one the video uploader mis identified as containing 'some spell'. It actually contains the Hero's Shield, which I found more useful than the Cross Shuriken.

        Shield eh? Hmmmmm *scratches chin*
