Talking about the length of the demo and the game as a whole.
''I think in general the play time is about an hour. However, that’s if you use the car to get around.
By the way, you can also play it for additional challenges, so you can spend more time with it. For example, in order to obtain a strong weapon, you can venture into the dungeon that has monsters stronger than the ones above ground.
I’m assuming that the actual game will take about 40 hours to clear, so comparing it in simple terms, the demo is about 1/40th of the actual game’s content. (Laughs)''
On the game almost being released in two parts.
''When I spoke to Nomura previously, he had mentioned a plan to release FFXV in segments. Is that concept still progressing now?
Tabata: We do not currently plan on releasing in segments. As director that was something I was concerned with because I thought it was important to complete it as my own title.''
A message for the naysayers ;p
''...those who are still uneasy about what they’ve seen, I think it’ll be best if you try the demo version out by all means.''
