[Spoilers] Final Fantasy XIV The Far Edge of Fate Trailer Has More Exciting Bosses than Final Fantasy XV

By now, it’s safe to say that there’s currently a huge divide with the massive fanbase of Final Fantasy franchise after Square Enix released the 15th entry in the franchise. Despite the game’s heartfelt and epic plot, some found it to be lackluster, while others took it as one of the best games to come out this generation. Now, we’re not going to argue with that. What we’re going to do is point out that the trailer for Final Fantasy XV The Far Edge of Fate has more excitingly unique bosses than the main storyline bosses FFXV presented.

For Final Fantasy XV, there are only a few memorable storyline bosses that you’d want to fight over and over again. There’s Ifrit, Aranea, and Ardyn. Aaaand, that’s about it. Really. We can’t really consider Titan and Leviathan as “exciting” since, well, Titan is a poor man’s God of War boss battle and Leviathan is a button mashing sequence overall. Don’t you even dare consider adding Loqi as an intense boss battle since that fight really was just dumb.

As for this single patch 3.5 for Final Fantasy XIV, we’ll just let the trailer speak for itself.


Now, do take note, we say “excitingly unique” here since they have more gravitas than what we saw in Final Fantasy XV where most of the time the essential stuff in the plot happened off-screen, or were lackluster in their own merit.

Ardyn’s character was just plain awesome, but they dumbed it down with 0 final boss difficulty and Advent Children-esque battle. The ensuing battle looked cool, indeed. But really? It didn’t take any work to chop down his HP in a span of minutes. Could have been more grander, Square Enix.

Ravus also could have been great. He had some destructive moves of his own, but there weren’t any build ups or anything of the sort that ruined it for him. To top it all off, Ravus was too much of a battle sponge that it dragged on for quite a bit, and therefore set some expectations about what the final encounter would be. That wasn’t the case. At. All.

Lastly, Foras, (in case you’ve forgotten, he’s the demon that chases you in the near end of Chapter 13. Turns out, it was actually Iedolas Aldercapt, the emperor of Niflheim himself, who was reduced to what seemed like a mini-boss with so little a hint that it was him.

And please, for the love of god, don't bring post game bosses here. Final Fantasy XV did it so lazily with just reskins recolors of mobs. Naglfar, also known as Omega Weapon, is just Deathclaw, Even MA-X Angelus is a simple magitek armor with uber buffed up stats. We can go on forever, really.

Where were you again?

Don’t get us wrong. We loved Final Fantasy XV, but if Square Enix could have invested more on it as they are doing right now with Final Fantasy XIV, it could have been a whole lot better.
