Square Enix Takes Us Behind the Scenes With Its ‘Epic Meal Time’ Collaboration
Food and cooking are “absolutely essential element” of the game.
Japanese video game company Square Enix posted a behind-the-scenes video of its collaboration with the gut-busting Canadian cooking web video series “Epic Meal Time” on Friday. The collaboration originally streamed in April, after the meat-loving cooks were flown to Japan by Square Enix to throw together a cheeseburger bentōbox for the company’s hungry staff.
In the new video, Tomohiro Hasegawa, the art director of Square Enix‘s upcoming Final Fantasy XV, explains that FFXV will incorporate food and cooking more into its plot and gameplay. Hajime Tabata, the game’s director, also shows off the “Epic Meal Time” version of the Special Hamburger, a towering hamburger that will appear inFFXV. Their version more closely resembles a stack of ham and cheese sandwiches. Finally, viewers are treated to footage of the upcoming game.
Final Fantasy XV is scheduled for a release date of September 30 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
