Game News Final Fantasy 16: the producer evokes an imminent trailer and a release date!
Much too discreet during this 2022 edition of the Tokyo Game Show, Final Fantasy XVI is sparing its effects and reserves itself for an appointment promised very soon. The next star of Square Enix will be talked about again in the very near future!
Final Fantasy 16 is biding its time…
If the specter of Final Fantasy XVI was discreetly hovering over TGS 2022, it was through a simple flyer revealing new artwork for the game and featuring the three main characters. And if we knew that Square Enix would remain silent about the new chapter of its flagship saga during the Tokyo Game Show, no details had yet been given about the famous meeting held in the fall and supposed to put a real spotlight on the title.
But producer Naoki Yoshida has since spoken out about it, even as he received the award. Future Division during the Japan Game Awards 2022, as an extension of the Tokyo Game Show. This is a question posed by a journalist who wanted to know more about what Square Enix was going to reveal this fall about Final Fantasy XVI which elicited the following response:
I haven’t had a chance to speak to the marketing or PR teams at all, so I’m not sure what I’m allowed to say, but I think we’ll probably be able to release the next trailer next month or so… And after that, I hope to be able to give a rough idea of the release date. – Naoki Yoshida (producer of Final Fantasy XVI)
A trailer and news in October!
In the words of producer Naoki Yoshida, we will therefore be entitled, from October, that is to say in the coming weeks, to a new trailer for Final Fantasy XVI. A trailer which, hopefully, will give us the opportunity to learn more about the game’s scenario but also about its gameplay mechanics.
But that’s not all ! Once the event has passed, the producer promises to communicate more precisely about the date on which the release of Final Fantasy XVI is scheduled, a date that was set until now at a vague “summer 2023”. Of course, the indications given by Naoki Yoshida lack precision and it could also be that Square Enix maintains the suspense a little longer than expected, but fans will in any case be on the lookout for this new information around Final Fantasy XVI from next month.
Final Fantasy XVI will be released in summer 2023 on PlayStation 5.
