Final Fantasy XVI announced

60 posts in this topic

First time that i don't look forward to the next FF game. I don't know, maybe i'm affected by XV's bitter taste.

The choice of the director doesn't seem wise (if it's Hiroshi Takai)

I'd prefer see Nier's director making a FF

This might be the first mainline Final Fantasy game (that's not an MMO) that makes me just go 'eh'.  The graphics are pretty and that sukazu looks amazing.  But the setting and the characters introduced so far are not that interesting to me at all.  I loved 15 so I like the hints of it but nothing about this is interesting at all.  Maybe things will change but as of right now it's a "skip" for me.

Late next year/ early 2022, perhaps?

Already placed bets with some friends that it'll be mid-2023 at the earliest. :P

Really hyped for this! The trailer looks awesome! Loving the setting and as @Stan Lee mentioned it looks like this has been in development for a while so hopefully not too far off.

Well I'm not a betting man and this is modern Final Fantasy after all so who knows, really?

It's led by Naoki Yoshida and his team (the guys that brilliantly rebooted FF14). As a long-time FF14 player this could not have been any better for me. All of FF14's expansions have been fantastic and had very positive critical reception, especially Heavensward and Shadowbringers.

I really like what I've seen so far. The whole medieval-like setting is a nice change of pace from the other more recent Final Fantasy titles. Seeing some of the people who are working on the game give me hope that this is going to turn out better than FFXV. Hopefully they actually release a complete product this time around without years worth of DLC and updates. I want them to give me a reason to play this game on day one.

Trailer seemed remarkably devoid of fun or bold stylistic choices to combat the drabness. Also had some Last Remnant vibes, which isn't terrible, but also not exactly something that raises my hype up.

It looks awesome. I never played a Final Fantasy game before, since the last remaster it got my attention. I might pick up some Final Fantasy games. ^^

The old school medieval FF setting has my attention. Now just make a complete story, with a full cast of job changing characters and it could be good.

I'm so happy this one has a medieval theme ( I adore this type ) , I don't like futuristic themed games much ( not really something I enjoy )

I'm really looking forward to it since it seems really unique ~

First time I watched the trailer, I was pretty unimpressed. Second and third time though, that music really hits hard and I'm actually really excited to be going back to a more pure fantasy setting.

Made by the same guy who made The Bouncer so I'm on the fence because that game was the very definition mediocre

I'm surprised by how much we saw of it. Story beats, characters, combat, this has been in production for a while! Late next year/ early 2022, perhaps?

 

To be completely honest... I wish that were the case. I truly, TRULY do. Unfortunately... I severely doubt it.

 

That's BEST CASE SCENARIO in all likelihood. In actuality... my best guess is it will be the 2022-2023 range when it actually comes out. 😭

I think it looks pretty good. I'm a massive fan of the series and this looks like classic Final Fantasy from the 90's. Seems like it's been influenced by Dark Souls and Bloodborne from a game-play standpoint and I'm a sucker for medieval fantasy

I heard so many good things about Naoki Yoshida and what he did with the story in FF XIV, that I am quite excited to see his work in a single player game. Maybe one day I will push through the beginning of FF XIV to get to the good stuff...maybe.

 

The combat looked really nice too, as for the setting, I don't really mind if it gets rid of the more futuristic aspects we usually find in FF, either way is fine with me.

This was probably an expansion for final fantasy 14 and square just told them to turn it into a full game and release it because we need a new final fantasy game lol 

 

I definitely thought it would be a expansion for ff14 while watching it had the same vibe

Wait until you find out about Ivalice.

I remember Balthier had a nice British accent, it contrasted a lot of Vaan's voice

Ah heck yeah! I'm excited for it! I really love Final Fantasy and I'm stoked to go on another adventure. I have no pre-tense of expectations. Give me whatever you want: turn based, action combat, whatever. I don't care, just bring on another Final Fantasy! 

 

I agree!
I love the medieval style aswell.

Hope we will get a classic old school Turn-Based Final Fantasy in the future.

Good news everyone!!

 

OUR PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED!!

 

https://www.pushsquare.com/news/2020/09/final_fantasy_xvi_coming_sooner_than_people_think_reportedly_in_development_for_at_least_4_years

 

Looks like we might be getting this soon after all!! Maybe @Stan Lee was right after all? 1f914.png

 

That would be nice. But also it's Squeenix we're dealing with here. 4 years is like half a game's dev cycle with them these days, and probably restarted like 7 times within that time period! 🤣
