Final Fantasy XV will feature both Chocobo-riding, as well as Fishing; Square Enix has revealed, for the 10-years-in-development 15th installment in the long-running Final Fantasy series. Which will finally be released for Xbox One & PlayStation 4 sometime in 2016. Square Enix has also revealed some new character details.

Here is the Chocobo-riding trailer for Final Fantasy XV.

Although somewhat brief, here is how Square Enix explains the Chobobo & Fishing mechanics in Final Fantasy XV.

Chocobos and Fishing

Chocobos can be rented in gil for up to 30 days, and called at any time. While riding chocobos, you can press the jump button again to make it try to stay airborne. When you get off a chocobo, it will follow you for a while. You cannot raise or bread chocobos. And you can catch fish of all sizes in bodies of water, using various different rods, to cook up back at camp.

And some additional Character & Location details:

About: King Regis
King Regis is the crystal’s current guardian, and he too can wield weapons from thin air. In his youth he fought beside Cid and General Cor.

Wondering why Regis has aged so dramatically? It lies in the need of his energy to maintain the shield around Lucis.

Sadly, Noctis’s mother and Regis’s queen actually died when Noctis was still an infant.

About: Lunafreya
Luna is a highly revered “oracle,” with the ability to talk to the gods. She is the youngest oracle ever.

Also, what’s that double-sided spear Luna is holding?

Luna lives in Tenebrae, a city under Niflheim control that has some autonomy thanks to her role as oracle.

Luna is courageous—unfazed, even when surrounded by the Niflheim soldiers, as she possesses extreme inner strength.

Luna and Noctis made a promise as children. We aren’t saying what yet, but it connects to the story.

About: The Niflheim Empire
The Niflheim Empire has achieved world domination – except for the Kingdom of Lucis, who has defied them with the crystal’s power.

About: Gentiana
In the new artwork of Luna, there is a “black haired woman” behind Luna. Her name is Gentiana and she plays an important role in Final Fantasy XV.

I’m very happy to see that Final Fantasy XV has such deep character development & such a deep world.

I’m also very happy to see Chocobo’s making a return! Woot woot!
