Square Enix will provide more details about the game’s world and characters in October.
Final Fantasy XVI‘s first trailer showed details from the game, as Square Enix didn’t want to fool us by showing something entirely different than what they wanted to represent with the new Final Fantasy. During the broadcast of Tokyo Game Show 2020, Naoki Yoshida, who you might know as Yoshi-P, the producer of Final Fantasy XVI, said that the graphics are far from their final version and they will improve and that in October, they will launch the teaser website for the game to provide more information about its world and characters. They were also honest and showed the game itself instead of resorting to using a CGI video (something that Sony did in the past with the first video of Killzone 2).
„How did you enjoy the FFXVI trailer? 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. In that span, the team’s size has grown from a handful of core members to a full-fledged unit that continues to polish and build upon what they have created so far, all to provide players with an experience unmatched in terms of story and gameplay,” Hiroshi Takai, the assistant director and producer of Final Fantasy XIV (as well as the director of Final Fantasy XVI) said when the game was announced.
If the rumours are true, Final Fantasy XVI has been in development for about for years, meaning it might launch earlier than we think. The game was announced for PlayStation 5 and PC (the latter is denied by the publisher) – Square Enix might have been paid by Sony for timed exclusivity. Let’s hope we won’t have to wait as much as we had to for XV (which was first announced as Final Fantasy Versus XIII in 2006).
