New Final Fantasy XVI Trailer Dazzles With Stunning Footage
Square Enix has released a new trailer for Final Fantasy XVI today giving an overview of its story, world, and characters. The game is out in the Summer of 2023 for PS5.
This is the first major trailer for the game that focuses on lore. It provides a deeper look into the world of Final Fantasy XVI and how it plunges into chaos as the nations gear up for a war. We also get to see a lot of the Eikons (Summons) in action in this trailer. It delves deeper into the game’s backstory, including the realm of Valisthea and its cast of people including the Dominants. Dominants are single men and women who have the capacity to summon a frightening power. Square Enix has already confirmed that the game will be released exclusively for the PS5.
Take a look at this action-paced trailer below in addition to some information from the press release sent by Square Enix.
“I’m happy to announce that our newest trailer—Ambition—is now live,” commented Naoki Yoshida, Producer, FINAL FANTASY XVI. “Rather than focusing on action as we did in our last reveal, this time we wanted to give the world a more in-depth look at FINAL FANTASY XVI’s lore and its rich cast of characters—with the Dominants front and centre.”
“As the game edges closer to completion, the team has turned its full attention to debugging and final adjustments,” said Hiroshi Takai, Director, FINAL FANTASY XVI. “Now that things are starting to come together, the game is sizing up to be something truly special.”
FINAL FANTASY XVI takes players to the realm of Valisthea, where Eikons are strong and lethal monsters who live within Dominants. The plot revolves around Clive Rosfield, a young man obsessed with mastering the blade known as the First Shield of Rosaria.
The game is set to launch in the Summer of 20223 for the PS5.
