During today’s PlayStation State of Play, a new trailer for Final Fantasy XVI was released, revealing a whole host of War, Riots, and Primals.
It also gave us expanded gameplay glimpses and a summer 2023 release window, which might come as a surprise given producer Naoki Yoshida said in April that FF XVI was nearing the end of development. Dive deep into the story of FF XVI, the trailer focuses on the war that will soon be waged between warring kingdoms, with the Empire seemingly leading the way. At the heart of this war are several key characters who seem to have the ability to transform (or at least embody) themselves into Primals that have traditionally been summoned in Final Fantasy games.
See for yourself in the trailer below:
Here are the Primals/Summons seen in the trailer:
Elsewhere in the trailer, we get new glimpses of the game’s combat, which appears to feature some unique boss fights that display health bars at the top of the screen. Combat throughout the game also looks pretty flashy, with plenty of spin attacks, fire and more. On the bottom right is a weapon wheel of sorts that players seem to be able to customize, complete with items, a leap action, an attack action, and a bunch of magic attacks. Hopefully we’ll find out more about all of this soon!
Final Fantasy XVI is being developed by Square Enix’s Creative Business Unit II studio and will be released in Summer 2023. Read more about how a simple mode for FF XVI could be on the way, then check out this new FF XVI art that reveals exciting story details.
