It focuses on the adventures of a young King Regis and his merry band of followers, sporting a deep combat system and plenty of other features.

  • Deep Combat System – Combos, counters, and Regis' signature "Warp Strike" combine for lightning fast real-time combat that rewards fast reflexes and smart tactics.
  • Companions - Three distinct companions offer unique and new ways to attack as well as tailored super moves that deal massive damage.
  • Magic - Ignite the battlefield, freeze your enemies, or electrify your foes with Fire, Ice, and Lightning magic.
  • Summons - Call upon epic Astral entities to decimate your foes in jaw-dropping ways.

As it turns out, A King's Tale is essentially King Regis telling a young Noctis a bedtime story.

Restless before bed young Noctis asks his father, King Regis, to tell a fairy tale full of fantasy and adventure instead of just another generic bedtime story. Regis begins with a peaceful day being disrupted when monsters raid the royal capital, Insomnia. Young Regis, joined by Weskham, starts his adventure from the royal capital. Eventually they are joined by friends Cid and Clarus, where they travel to the plains of Duscae only to discover a mysterious cave where their enemy resides. Throughout the tall tale, King Regis and Noctis interject their own commentary, adding depth and perspective to the story itself.
