Someone Leaked Final Fantasy 15's Ending Six Months Ago

Back in May, an anonymous poster on 4chan wrote up a bunch of plot points that he said were story spoilers for Final Fantasy 15. Nobody believed him. Well, about that ... (don't stress: we'll keep the spoilers out of this article.)

As it turns out, this 4chan poster had leaked FF15's actual ending, complete with some very real information on the final boss and fates of the main characters. He got a couple of details wrong, but for the most part, the leaker was spot on. The 4chan posts are long gone, so you can check out the roundup of his Q&A over in this NeoGAF thread. (There ARE spoilers in there.)

The original reactions were sceptical, naturally. Anyone can claim to be anything on 4chan, a website that requires no verification or proof of identity, and more than a few people had already pretended to have Final Fantasy 15 secrets that turned out to be false. "Most of this sounds made up," wrote one GAFfer. Added another: "This reads like complete horseshit." Yet it all turned out to be true.

At the time, the 4chan leaker also claimed that Final Fantasy 15 was in really bad shape on consoles and that everyone was "nervous as fuck" about hitting September 30, which turned out to be prescient: Square Enix later delayed FF15 to today, November 29. The good news is that it runs just fine.

Here's the most interesting tidbit. Someone asked the leaker if Final Fantasy 15I was in development. In response, he wrote: "FF15I is only going to happen if 15 does well." Make of that what you will!

    "A group of people with perfect hair save the world"

    "This reads like complete horseshit"

    Alas, it was all true.

    Again.

    Was it Kotaku? Because they like to leak things all the time (and then cry about being blacklisted).

    "Noctis of Versus 13 and Noctis of FF 15 are different people"
    "I read the script of Versus 13 many times, so it was difficult to switch my mind."
    "There was an unrealistic psychological depiction in the script of FF 15, I interrupted recording for an hour and consulted with the staff."
    This is a remark of a Japanese voice actor who played Noctis.

    The script of FF 15 is not written by Nojima.
    Itamuro wrote the script of FF 15. Itamuro is a female, an inexperienced writer.
    Tabata appointed Itamuro as a screenwriter.
    Nomura and Nojima did not touch FF 15 at all since it was dismissed to 2013.

    Nomura was ordered to give priority to KH 3 and FF 7.
    Luna, old Legis, old Noctis are not designed by Nomura. It is a work of another person.

    It is a misunderstanding that Versus 13 was delayed by Nomura.
    Wada who was president of Square Enix at the time was disliking the management policy that relied on high-risk giant game.
    Wada used mobile gaming machines and arcades and was trying to appeal to non-core gamers.
    Actually, when Wada was president, Nomura made only software for portable game machines.
    Besides, a lot of staff was robbed to restore FF 14 from failure.
    Versus 13 had neither budget nor staff.
    This is certainly because Wada wrote on his FaceBook.

    This is the URL of Wada's FaceBook. It is Japanese.

    https://www.facebook.com/notes/yoichi-wada/%E3%81%9D%E3%82%8D%E3%81%9D%E3%82%8D%E8%AA%9E%E3%82%8D%E3%81%86%E3%81%8B%E5%85%B6%E3%81%AE%E5%A3%B1/1078206192234133/

    In 2013 the president of Square Enix was replaced from Wada to Matsuda.
    Tabata asked Matsuda "let me do the director of FF 15".
    Matsuda appointed Tabata as the director of FF 15.
    There is no doubt that Tabata responded that way in an interview.

    The huge budget that made games, movies and animation was given to Tabata, not Nomura.

    This is the history of 10 years. It is the truth.
    Japanese enthusiastic FF fans know this.

    thank you for reading.
    I think that it is difficult to read sentences. I'm sorry.
    I am a Japanese. I use Google Translate.
    I guess you can not believe it. But it is true.
    Please. I want you to spread this story.
    Square Enix is sick.
    Liars are more influential on the company than creators.

    If you look forward to the Square Enix game you will be releasing in the future, please spread this story.
    I am helpless.

    I will use 4chan for the first time. I pray that I have not violated etiquette.
