According to the manufacturer, Final Fantasy 16 is “in the final stages of development”.
development on Final Fantasy 16 seems to be going well. So good that it’s in the final stages of development.
So says the game’s producer, Naoki Yoshida, who recently featured in fashion company Uniqlo’s latest in-store magazine (translated by aitaikimochi on twitter).
“We are in the final stages of development for the new numbered game in the series, Final Fantasy 16,” Yoshida told the magazine. “Our goal is to deliver a comprehensive game full of story and gameplay.
“Unlike an online game that involves many players simultaneously, Final Fantasy 16 offers a different experience that focuses on the individual player and immerses you in the story.
“For those who have come of age and realized that reality has not been kind to you and has moved away from Final Fantasy, we hope Final Fantasy 16 will be a game that can bring back the passion you once had.” of the series.”
Led by Hiroshi Takai, Final Fantasy 16 was announced for PlayStation 5 in September 2020. The game is set in the land of Valisthea, where six factions are almost at a point of conflict due to a spreading disease called Blight.
The land is dotted with Mother Crystals, described as glittering crystal mountains that tower over the realms and bless them with Aether. For generations, people have harnessed their blessings and harnessed the Aether to summon magic to live lives of comfort and abundance.
In the game there are Eikons, who are described as powerful and deadly creatures residing within a dominant – a single male or female blessed with the ability to invoke their power. In some nations, dominants are treated as kings, while others are forced to serve as weapons of war.
Those born Dominants cannot escape their fate, and one of the people bearing what he sees as a small burden is Joshua Rosfield, second son of the Archduke of Rosaria. Instead of his older brother Clive awakening as the dominant of the phoenix, the meek and literal Joshua was chosen instead. Unlike the brave and strong Clive, Joshua is somewhat frail and for some reason has an aversion to carrots.
Little else is known about the game as Square has remained a bit mum about it, only promising to reveal more sometime this spring.
Currently with no release date, Final Fantasy 16 has only been confirmed for PS5, but industry analyst Piers Harding-Rolls says it will arrive six months after PS5 on PC and a year later on other consoles.
