Ubisoft, the Montreal-based developer behind 'Assassin's Creed', and Square Enix, the Tokyo studio responsible for 'Final Fantasy', have combined the might of those two massive video game franchise for the upcoming free DLC, 'Assassin's Festival.' The game features Final Fantasy characters inserted into an Assassin's Creed-style environment, with gameplay that more closely hews to Ubisoft's title.
Assassin's Festival is a free addition onto Final Fantasy XV, which is currently available for gamers. Aside from a playful combination in and of itself, the title serves as an extra boost of marketing for the upcoming 'Assassin's Creed Origin' game. Since Assassin's Creed is more popular in North American markets while Final Fantasy is a hit in Asia, the collaboration could expand the player base for both franchises.
