Final Fantasy 16: Game News at Tokyo Game Show

Final Fantasy 16

Square Enix fans were actually prepared not to receive any news about Final Fantasy 16 at this year's Tokyo Game Show. The team around producer Naoki Yoshida was not yet satisfied with the quality of the title and did not want to show any new material. Nevertheless, Yoshida commented on the new Final Fantasy title in a livestream during the Tokyo Game Show last Saturday.

According to Yoshida, the main design of Final Fantasy 16 is complete. He also assured that the development team is currently completing the remaining side quests that will appear in the game. Yoshida also said that the game's character models are also almost complete and that there is only a few more quality improvements to be made to the game.

This slow, steady release of information about the new game isn't particularly satisfying to fans, but it is nevertheless intended. Yoshida has previously stated that Square Enix is ​​deliberately holding back on Final Fantasy 16 news in order to avoid excessive hype about the game. In an interview with the Washington Post in February of this year, Yoshida said the following:

"We don't want to say something that is immature and leads to speculation about the title. For any Final Fantasy fan, the point is that he gets upset about, differently, depending on which Final Fantasy title he is in the mood for. "

With this, Square Enix clearly wants to protect itself from unrealizable expectations. When the first trailer was unveiled as part of the PS5 Showcase in 2020, the fans were very dissatisfied with the graphics shown in the trailer.


Final Fantasy 16 announced: Check out the first trailer for the PS5 game at loadVideoPlayer ('83255', '& sAdSetCsategory = artikel_featured', 12, '16: 9 ', false, 1380791, false, 268643, 260 , false, 0, '', '', false); Yoshida assured at the time that this won't be the final look of the game. With the completion of the main design, this hurdle should now be overcome. Thanks to the strived for perfectionism of the entire team, fans will have to be patient about the unveiling of a release date.

"Everyone will probably have their own idea of ​​what the next Final Fantasy should look like," Yoshida said in an interview with the Washington Post. "Saying something immature is definitely a high risk. When something is said, someone picks it up on social media and it starts to spread and people build expectations. So when we reveal more information with 'Final Fantasy 16' Let's hope we can show what kind of game it will be and what kind of anticipation we want to inspire. "

We are definitely looking forward to more information and will keep you updated on all the latest Final Fantasy 16 news.

With its quality standards, Square Enix is ​​clearly different from other development studios. What do you think of this reluctance? Do you prefer to be "hyped" on a game or can you be patient? Let us know in the comments!

Final Fantasy 16 producer Naoki Yoshida has hinted that development on the game is nearly finished.

Speaking during a Tokyo Game Show 2021 presentation (via VGC), Final Fantasy 16 producer Naoki Yoshida said that the forthcoming game 'only has a few quality improvements left' . Yoshida further revealed that the game design team is currently finalizing the side quests set to appear in Final Fantasy 16, and character models are nearly finished.

This was the only update given on Final Fantasy 16 during Square Enix's portion of the Tokyo Game Show 2021 over the past weekend. Previously, Yoshida indicated that although Square Enix was pushing for Final Fantasy 16 to have a large presence at the showcase itself, this was unlikely to happen due to the ongoing development timeline of the game itself. 

That being said, Yoshida has let a few minor development details slip about Final Fantasy 16 over the past few months. The producer previously stated that English voice recording is going ahead first, ahead of native Japanese audio, and even earlier this year in February, Yoshida hinted that Final Fantasy 16 could have an 'easy mode' planned to help newcomers adjust to the action-RPG elements.

The wait for Final Fantasy 16 continues to be an agonizing one. First revealed in September 2020 at a PlayStation showcase as a PS5 exclusive with a stylish cinematic trailer, at the time Yoshida said that new information about the game would be coming in early 2021, but since then news around the action-RPG has been scant. Nonetheless, Final Fantasy 16 remains one of the most hotly anticipated games on the planet.
