Final Fantasy XVI Trailer Gives a Taste of a Very Naoki Yoshida World

Final Fantasy XVI

The Final Fantasy series is getting another injection from the minds behind Final Fantasy XIV. As revealed during today’s PS5 Showcase, Final Fantasy XVI is in the works with director Hiroshi Takai at the helm along with FFXIV‘s Naoki Yoshida as producer. 

According to Yoshida, the next big info dump isn’t scheduled until 2021, so for now you’re going to have to be satisfied with the debut trailer below. 

More of Yoshida’s comments from the PlayStation Blog:

Final Fantasy XVI producer (that’s right, just producer) Naoki Yoshida here. How did you enjoy the trailer? The exclusive footage, comprised of both battles and cutscenes running in real-time, represents but a fraction of what our team has accomplished since the start of development on this, an all-new Final Fantasy game. In that span, the team’s size has grown from a handful of core members to a full-fledged unit that continues to polish and build upon what they have created so far, all to provide players an experience unmatched in terms of story and gameplay. 

Our next big information reveal is scheduled for 2021, so in the meantime, I expect everyone to have fun speculating, as we have a lot in store—not only for Final Fantasy XVI, but for Final Fantasy XIV, too. Needless to say, I’ll be working hard on both! 

And director Takai: 

When Final Fantasy I was released, I was just another player─a young student with big dreams. By the time Final Fantasy V was in the works, I had earned myself a seat at the developers’ table… albeit at the very end. From there, I moved “online” leaving my mark on both Final Fantasy XI and XIV

And now…XVI

From the establishment of an all new development environment, to learning the ins-and-outs of the PlayStation 5, the team and I have taken on countless challenges during our journey to bring you the sixteenth chapter in the storied Final Fantasy franchise. And though we’re pouring our hearts and souls into this project each and every day, it may still be some time before we can get it into your hands. However, I promise it will be worth the wait! 

Final Fantasy XVI is also coming to other platforms after a limited exclusive release on PS5.
