During the Active Time Report live stream at Gamescom 2015, Final Fantasy XV game director Hajime Tabata showed brand new footage from the game. The brief gameplay ended with a fight against Malboro, a recurring enemy from the Final Fantasy series.
The gameplay footage can be seen in the video below.
Similar to the Tonberry, Malboros have ranked among the more difficult and annoying enemies in the series, as their signature move Bad Breath can inflict many status ailments on its targets, crippling unprotected parties.
In addition, Malboros often have other status attacks as well, and other “breath”-based attacks. Common variants of Malboro include the Great Marlboro and the Malboro Menace, among others.
Unfortunately, fans were expecting the gameplay footage to be a bit more substantial. Instead, what we got was a brief video of Malboro making quick work of Noctis and gang.
That said, this was just day 1 of Active Time Report, and it’s likely that we’ll get to see more unseen footage from the game in the next few days. Stay tuned for further updates in this regard as they become available. In the meantime, let us know what you thought of Malboro’s return in Final Fantasy XV in the comments below.
