According to Geeksnack, "Final Fantasy 15" director Hajime Tabata has revealed that magic in the game will be activated in several different ways. Tabata stated during an interview with Spielester that gamers can do magic in "FFXV" video game by letting their characters wear special rings.

Tabata adds that magic will not simply come out of their hands that equipping these special rings will allow them to perform magic attacks and be able to manipulate the whole environment around them. Magic in the game will also be divided into two different types, as the Tabata hinted that one type of magic is only exclusive to the Lucis Family, meaning Noctis can only wield this type of power.

Square Enix recently revealed new game details for "Final Fantasy 15" during Gamescom 2015 two weeks. Square Enix unveiled a new trailer that shows backstory before the events of the actual game, as well as new gameplay video that sees Noctis and the gane fighting a new enemy, Malboro.

It was also reported before that Square Enix released three settings from "Final Fantasy 15" as well as rumored summons in the game such as Odin, Gilgamesh, Anima, Alexander, Bahamut, Knights of the Round etc.

Square Enix announced last year that "Final Fantasy 15's" is at 50 percent of its development as Tabata recently announced that the new title is already 65 percent from its development, Vine Report wrote.

"The 50 percent that we said last year was technical assets and programming assets," Tabata stated." The 65 percent that I'm saying now includes all of the mastering processes. Its a slightly different stat. The actual development work on the game has progressed quite a lot.

Tabata also confirmed that "Final Fantasy 15" will launch on 2016 for the PS4 and Xbox One, but he did not specify which month it will be. Tabata teased that Square Enix will likely showcase more "FFXV details in PAX 2015 later this month.

In other news, a previous report from Segment Next speculated that a PC version for "Final Fantasy 15" will likely be in the works.

Tabata admitted that he was not sure whether "Final Fantasy 15" could run up at 1080p and 60 frames-per-second. He also adds that in order to support that gameplay mechanics and combat system with the 1080p and 60FPS, a high end PC is required.

It was previously hinted that gaming fans made a petition to have "Final Fantasy 15" for the PC which reached about 13,000 signatures. A leaked video featured the game running on the Windows 10 software coupled with DirectX 12 which makes it more impressive than the console versions.

Square Enix recently opened up a job listing for individuals with professional PC skills and the project is related to the online features for "FFXV."

"Final Fantasy 15" will be release on 2016 for PS4 and Xbox One.
