After popping up on the ESRB ratings site, Square Enix has officially dated and expanded on the upcoming Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition. The expanded edition of the our 2016 Game of the Year pick is set to launch alongside the PC release (titled Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition) on March 3rd.
Surprisingly, the Royal Edition will expand on the game by giving a larger version of Insomnia City Ruins, adding additional side quests and monsters to fight. There is also a player controlled boat that will allow you to explore and fish in the areas between Cape Caem and Altissia, all the previously released DLC and Episodes, and a new First Person View which is sure be an interesting addition to the game.
