The game's director says they didn't want players to confuse it with a driving game.

So that players don't think Final Fantasy 15 is "a driving game," the developers won't be including the car from the trailers and infamous memes.

The Final Fantasy 15 demo, Episode Duscae, is set to be included with day one copies of Final Fantasy Type-0, which is set for a 17th March release in North America, and 20th March release in Europe, this year.

Speaking to Polygon, Final Fantasy 15's director Hajime Tabata said,"Originally we were planning on making the car be available to drive throughout the world and throughout the demo.

"But we didn't want people to mistake it and think 'When did Final Fantasy become a driving game?'"

The demo will focus more on the characters and exploring the game's world.

Tabata went on to say, "You'll be able to experience the starting point of what an open-world Final Fantasy would potentially feel like.

"You'll really be able to experience that seamless Final Fantasy world within the demo itself, but then if you play it, you'll still really get a sense that it's a Final Fantasy game. You'll get that balance within the demo."

Final Fantasy 15 is due for release on Xbox One and PS4, but no launch date has been given.
