Most fans didn’t know what to expect from the PlayStation 5 Showcase, though there are a few titles they are hoping to see. One of the most popular games fans were expecting to see was Square Enix’s new addition to the esteemed Final Fantasy series, especially the next major installment following the events of Final Fantasy XV.
It has been a long time since fans heard anything about a new addition to the main series. However, that’s not the case anymore as Sony and Square Enix has finally revealed Final Fantasy XVI during last night’s PlayStation 5 Showcase.
One other big factor from the reveal was that Final Fantasy XVI will be exclusive to the PlayStation 5. However, they did mention that the footage revealed was captured on a PC. While the franchise has been a famous topic because of Final Fantasy VII Remake, Final Fantasy XV was the most recent entry in Final Fantasy’s main story.
Even though Final Fantasy XV was significantly delayed, the game was released with high praise for its amazing gameplay. Despite Final Fantasy XV’s success, it is still uncertain if the next title would have the same mechanics as the previous releases in the franchise or alter the characters and world for a brand new story.
While there are still no official announcements on the new game’s plot, characters, and gameplay, at least fans know where the game sits in the timeline. Based on the trailer, it seems that fans will have another new world to explore.
