Long awaited 'Final Fantasy XV' debuts at E3; game to be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One

Game delayed for more than 7 years

LOS ANGELES - It's a video game more than seven years in the making.

Square Enix revealed during Sony's presentation Monday at the Electronic Entertainment Expo that "Final Fantasy XV" would finally see the light of day.

The latest entry in the long-running role-playing series was previously known as "Final Fantasy Versus XIII" and was first revealed at E3 way back in 2006.

What's taking so long?

Tetsuya Nomura, Square Enix's chief creative head, says technology had to catch up with his imagination. The title was originally intended for the PlayStation 3, but "Final Fantasy XV" will be available for the next-generation PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The original "Final Fantasy" was released in 1987 and has spawned dozens of sequels and spin-offs.
