Someone has translated the interview at mognetcentral so here it is:
Q: Will FFXV be coming to PCs? Also, what about the PS4Pro version of the game, the improvements will consist only in 4K and HDR or there’ll be modes/configurations for the player to choose how the game looks?
HT: About the PC we’re focusing all our efforts into the console versions of the game. So we’re not looking into it right now to be honest. Making a PC version of the game would mean we’d have to readjust a lot of stuff and concentrate solely on developing it, even though the development team has shown interest in getting a PC version out at some point. About the PS4PRO, it’s basically the same thing about the PC – if we wanted to take full advantage of the new hardware that would mean putting in much effort and time to make the game look and run better…and time is something we don’t have right now neither we had foreseen the PS4Pro existence before. In the future, with some dedication and time maybe we can get a PS4Pro version of the game that can take advantage of the systems capabilities. But as of right now the game has maxed out the PS4 horsepower.
Q: The clothes Noctis wore in the first Final Fantasy Versus XIII teaser will be available in FFXV?
HT: There are no plans for something like that mostly because this is not FFVXIII. Of course if there’s a lot of people wanting and demanding it we’d be open to study the possibility.
Q: After we finish the game can we replay it to see “secondary stuff” (I think he means things and places we can’t access or see on our first playthrough)? Also, it’ll be possible to play as old Noctis and the bros?
HT: Sure, after you finish the game we’ll be able to keep on playing and exploring the world after the main quest. About the other question if you’re meaning you want to keep all the experience and levels you gained during the first play through that option won’t be possible on the base version of the game, maybe we can add something like that through DLC.
Q: I wasn’t referring about that actually. I wanted to know if when we start a New Game+ it’ll be possible to play as young party (normal Noctis and the bros) or old Noctis and co. (old Noctis and the bros).
HT: Oh, I’d rather not answer that. I actually want people to find out for themselves. Don’t want to give spoilers.
Q: Which past versions of the FF franchise has inspired them throughout the development of FFXV? There’re other games references and the development team took as inspiration?
HT: First on the artistic side, mainly the monsters, they’re all inspired by artworks made by Yoshitaka Amano which he made for the classic Final Fantasy series. So we wanted that monster style to give the world a FF saga vibe. About the gameplay and overall I took inspiration from FFV but FFXV has its own originalities and innovations.
Q: What are the differences between the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game?
HT: In terms of content they’re basically the same game. Technically they’re different pieces of hardware so be most significant difference is about the resolution maybe. They both run at dynamic resolution and to be more specific the Xbox One version is a little low on the resolution side but overall we’re taking full advantage of each piece of hardware has to offer. Players of both versions will be satisfied.
Q: What’s the link between FFXV and Fabula Nova Crystallis if there’s still any, of course. After so much time has passed and with the projects changes it seemed you had troubles fitting the concepts of FNX into Noctis story.
HT: We didn’t take the FNC too much into account when developing FFXV mostly because the world of FFXIII and FFXV are completely different. And I think with each FF title people want stories that can be experienced on its own without much background knowledge or something like that so keeping the FNC myth from FFXIII onto FFXV wouldn’t be a very good idea.
Q: At any point in FFXV development you guys thought about a Co-Op mode? Can that be coming in the future?
HT: It was developed as a single-player experience. If people really want something like that we can definitely consider. It’s very tough to convert a single-player game that was designed as such to a multiplayer game. Even though the possibilities aren’t 0% it’s complicated, let’s not discard it for the future.
Q: Do you think this FF will be valued and treasured as much as the old FFs that everyone loves so much?
HT: It’s up to the players to decide if FFXV will be one of the greats. What I can say is that we had work so hard to make a game that the fans can enjoy and like, we want them to feel like it’s a beautiful FF game. We gave it our all and hope the fans will be satisfied in the end."
