This man is Noctis’ father. He is the king of the only country that possesses a crystal. Stella, the blonde haired woman Noctis often talks to, is a princess from Tenebrae, a different country.
A few details about the battle system were discussed too. The game’s command menu has four options: Magic, Summon, Item, and EX-Arts. While there isn’t a specific command for "fight," Noctis can use several swords in the game. It’s possible for players to switch between characters during battle. Party members are armed with different weapons and abilities.
