Approaching the release date for Final Fantasy XV Episode Ardyn on March 26, 2019, Square Enix shared one trailer and two gameplay features. These gameplay features showcased Ardyn’s ability, Shadow Move and Daemonification.
Using his Daemon powers, Ardyn is able to use “Shadow Move” to freely travel across the map in high speed. It is described by the developers as an exhilarating new action that can be used to explore Insomnia.
“Daemonification” is a special attack that neutralizes enemies by transforming them into Daemons. Ardyn becomes stronger each time the ability is used, as it absorbs power from the transformed Daemon.
