It’s very rare to see a developer announce a release of a new version of a game demo, but that is exactly what developer Square Enix did. The popular game company has announced “Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae Version 2.0,” a new and improved version of the original “Final Fantasy 15” demo that originally came out as “Final Fantasy Type O HD.”

Siliconera made the announcement, also revealing that the “Final Fantasy 15” demo would be released in early June. The publisher said it listened to fan feedback on the older version of the demo and promised a number of improvements in the new version.

According to IGN, a lot of the improvements will be seen in the combat system. Players will be able to execute new moves, like joint attacks that will let two or more members of a party attack an opponent. A new dodge roll mechanic also may be added -- though that hasn’t been confirmed.

Adding the dodge roll to the game would be an interesting move on the part of Square Enix, as the battle system of “Final Fantasy 15” has been compared to the one in the “Kingdom Hearts” games.

The frame rate issues of the game have also been fixed, as that was one of the major concerns of the original demo. The camera will also get some adjustments, as fans also complained about the directions in which it would go -- a complaint similar to those made about the “Kingdom Hearts” games.

While the demo will be released in June, the release date of the actual “Final Fantasy 15” game is still uncertain. “Final Fanatsy XV: Episode Duscae Version 2.0” will be out next month, though it’s still unclear if the demo will come out to those who did not purchase “Final Fantasy Type O HD.”
