Perhaps with less fanfare than it might have received were it announced during a live event, this morning’s PlayStation 5 Showcase event started with Square Enix unveiling their first trailer for Final Fantasy XVI – the sixteenth mainline Final Fantasy game in the long-running RPG series. While Tetsuya Nomura and Hajime Tabata helmed the last game, Final Fantasy XIV Online veterans Naoki Yoshida (Producer) and Hiroshi Takai (Director) are taking the charge this time around.
While not exclusively to the PlayStation 5, Sony Interactive Entertainment has console exclusivity for Final Fantasy XVI. Those without a PS5 console at launch will be able to purchase the game for the PC as well. Expect to hear more about this RPG in 2021.
