Final Fantasy XVI appears to be in the crucial final stages of its development cycle, as a new interview with producer Naoki Yoshida has provided some updates on Square Enix’s upcoming RPG.
Detected online by Twitter user alberich_ff14 and translated by RPG Site, Yoshida’s comments come from an official Uniqlo magazine ahead of the brand’s release of several Final Fantasy t-shirts.
“We are now at the end of development of the new FF16 game,” said Yoshida. “Unlike an online game that shows multiple players simultaneously, FF16 focuses on an individual, so the state of immersion in the story will be different. I feel like the story will be very deep.”
According to the producer, there is hope that this particular Final Fantasy will appeal to older fans of the series, who have grown up with the various games over the years. Yoshida previously said that the game’s next big reveal will take place in Spring 2022, and due to complications surrounding COVID-19, development on Final Fantasy XVI has been delayed by nearly half a year.
Very little is known about Final Fantasy XVI at the moment, but the names of three of its characters – Clive, Joshua and Jill – have been confirmed and Square Enix has also described this entry in the main series as being more action-oriented. .
Despite not being present at the Tokyo Games Show in September, there was also confirmation that the game’s story had been completed and the English dubs were almost done.
