Organizers of the 2017 Game Developers Conference are happy to confirm that Square Enix will be at the show offering a behind-the-scenes look at the narrative design of Final Fantasy XV.

Dan Inoue is a lead writer and localization director at Square Enix, and in his talk on "Bringing Fantasy to Life in Final Fantasy XV" he'll discuss how "a fantasy based on reality" came to reside in the real world, and what rules were made and broken to maintain a cohesive, coherent narrative amid swathes of information.

So come learn how the fantasy came to life -- you'll walk away with techniques for bringing realism into a fantasy world, insight into the challenges of maintaining a cohesive narrative across companion projects and promotions, and strategies for turning the universe to your advantage, all with a unique AAA JRPG spin.

Make time for it in your GDC 2017 schedule, and don't miss your opportunity to save some money by registering early -- the deadline to register for passes at a discounted rate is January 18, 2017. GDC 2017 itself will take place February 27th - March 3rd at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
