Behold the realm of Valisthea!
One of the most anticipated games of Square Enix‘s 2023 lineup, Final Fantasy XVI released a new trailer that takes players on a tour of the realm of Valisthea. On this tour, we see the different kingdoms, meet the royals in charge, and get to see a few Dominants along the way.
However, the coolest part of this trailer is seeing the little bit of backstory that leads to epic Eikon-on-Eikon gameplay!
“I’m happy to announce that our newest trailer—Ambition—is now live,” commented Naoki Yoshida, Producer, FINAL FANTASY XVI. “Rather than focusing on action as we did in our last reveal, this time we wanted to give the world a more in-depth look at FINAL FANTASY XVI’s lore and its rich cast of characters—with the Dominants front and centre.”
“As the game edges closer to completion, the team has turned its full attention to debugging and final adjustments,” said Hiroshi Takai, Director, FINAL FANTASY XVI. “Now that things are starting to come together, the game is sizing up to be something truly special.”
The “AMBITION” trailer demonstrates just how ambitious the Final Fantasy XVI development team was in creating this game. What we see is a seemingly-vast world brimming with stunning landscapes and kingdoms to explore. Each kingdom looks to have their own unique cultures and philosophies on the impending war. I can’t wait to experience all of it.
