MONSTER OF THE DEEP: FINAL FANTASY XV
Developer/publisher Square Enix Format PSVR Release September
Or, if we may, Square Enix Batshit Fishing. The publisher’s post-launch support for Final Fantasy XV has been commendable, and varied – recent updates have added thirdperson shooting stages and free-roaming, off-road driving, while the forthcoming Comrades expansion will offer fourplayer co-op. It seems Square Enix intends to, slowly but surely, turn Final Fantasy XV into the everygame, containing every genre and gameplay mechanic known to man. It’s an interesting experiment, you must admit. That’s at least one of the more plausible explanations for Monster Of The Deep, a VR-powered mix of Sega
Bass Fishing with FFXV’s matey central foursome and hideous aquatic bestiary. Details are thin on the ground, but really, there’s little more to say. This is FFXV’s fishing minigame reborn in a VR headset through the lens of a Sega arcade classic; you can eat the daily catch around the fire with Noctis and co; it looks absolutely ridiculous, and you can colour us weirdly, guiltily intrigued.
