It's been mentioned once or twice before, but now it's been confirmed by director Hajime Tabata: Final Fantasy XV will be getting a simultaneous worldwide release when it eventually launches. In other words, we won't be waiting months for it to hit Western store shelves after it comes out in Japan.

"This may be something that we are little bit embarrassed to talk about, but really, this is the first time that we've done a packaged, standalone Final Fantasy game with a simultaneous global launch," Tabata told GameSpot.

Supposedly releasing in 2016, it's at least somewhat comforting to know that we won't potentially have to wait even longer to get the game in English. If only this was the case with all Japanese projects, eh?
