It's not at all like FFXV. The other 4 characters are playable.

With one of them not being playable. Red is nothing more than Iris or Aranea by the sound of it. Disappointing.

It’s not like you really have control of him leading up to the World Map anyways

Unfortunate but I'm not surprised. He was going to come into it that late in the first place that they probably were better off saving him for the next one.

Lots of games have NPC allies in some battles. It's not like XV that only let you control Noctis in the initial release.

I always knew there was a big chance that he wasnt playable in the first part since he joins at the end of the Midgar arc, so im not surprised or disappointed, especially since i have no problem with the multi-games formula so i know that even if he wont be playabe in part 1 he surely will be in the next entries, together with all the other characters missing.

Name a remake that has a playable character in the original relegated to NPC status. It's a downgrade, no matter how you look at it.

There's nothing stopping them pulling off an Episode Red like FFXV, then patching him in playable later. Wake up.

...this is not a typical remake. He'll be playable in future parts.

They have more games to make. They better not be spending too much time on DLC for this one.

Yeah, with a multi-game format it doesnt make much sense wasting time doing DLC for something that would go anyway in the next game.....also considering the reason given by the devs for not making Red XIII playable, doing so in a DLC would be nonsensical even from a logical pov.

It's FFXV all over again, I'll just wait until they patch him in as playable.
We already have the 4 main characters of this part of the game as playable.
Red's not playable only because he joins like 90% through this part's story, so it makes sense.

There's no comparition at all with XV where you could only control 1 character at the initial release.
