Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV is an anime spinoff that’s coming to YouTube

Final Fantasy XV is getting its own anime series. Dubbed Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV, the series is somewhat of a prequel, telling the story of main character Noctis and how he came to be friends with the three characters that he'll be traveling with in the game. The series will consist of five, 10-minute-long episodes, and you won't have to worry about importing a DVD or searching for bootlegs online — all episodes will be available for free on YouTube.

The series is being produced by A-1 Pictures, a Japanese animation studio best known for its work on series like Sword Art Online and Black Butler. Brotherhood won't be the studio's first video game adaptation, either, as A-1 has previously made anime series based on games like Persona and Valkyria Chronicles. According to Square Enix, the story of the new anime will tie directly to the latest demo for the game, which itself tells a story separate from the main FF XV.

You can watch the first episode above, while subsequent episodes are expected to launch ahead of FF XV's September 30th release.
