Final Fantasy XVI announced | Rock Paper Shotgun

PlayStation kicked off its latest games showcase with a reveal trailer for the next Final Fantasy game and boy oh boy does Final Fantasy XVI look pretty grim. It’s been announced as a PS5 console exclusive “not available on other platforms for a limited time after release on PS5” though it will also be available on PC. Fingers crossed that perhaps us PC folks will get a simultaneous launch with the PS5, eh?

The setting for Final Fantasy XVI looks pretty dang dark. I swear I only knew it was FF by the hairstyles and chocobos. It’s all medieval knights in shiny armor but with less glam and more ugly warfare, it looks.

A young kid named Joshua appears to be the centerpiece, protected by his bodyguard. Apparently little Josh is a phoenix. Does that mean he’s a healer? Har har. There are plenty of big baddies shown in some combat gameplay. Looks like XVI is sticking to action combat.

In PlayStations’s announcement post, Naoki Yoshida says “the exclusive footage, comprised of both battles and cutscenes running in real-time, represents but a fraction of what our team has accomplished since the start of development on this, an all-new Final Fantasy game.”

According to Yoshida, the next time we’ll hear about Final Fantasy XVI will be in 2021 so we’ll be sitting with all our speculation ’till then.
