Earlier this year Square Enix released Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, bundled together along with a Final Fantasy XV demo. The demo, titled Episode Duscae, is a standalone adventure that allows players to explore a lush, open area on the hunt for a deadly Behemoth in order to become familiar with the new characters and combat. Fans who played the demo responded to Square Enix with myriad criticisms, ranging from the camera lock-on to issues with the difficulty.

Square Enix plans to make good on all these complaints. Director Hajime Tabata and marketing manager Akio Ofuji ran down 15 of the biggest pieces of feedback in a translated video released yesterday. The video was originally recorded on April 10, the day Square Enix announced it moved over 1 million copies of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD. Only fans who purchased FF Type-0 HD were able to complete a survey about FF XV, so only those bits of feedback from folks who've played the game were taken into account.

Some of the fan criticism and proposed fixes involve unintelligent A.I., frame-rate drops, the dashing system, and sluggish animations. Square Enix plans to integrate all the fixes into both the Episode Duscae demo and of course FF XV itself. For the whole list of fan complaints, read this article by Kotaku outlining the main points of the video.

You can watch the presentation in its entirety below.

Final Fantasy XV is currently in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A release date hasn't been confirmed yet, but you can keep up with beat-by-beat the development of the game here.
