It’s been quite a few years since the last Final Fantasy game was released. But despite fans being hungry for a new entry in the series, Final Fantasy 16 largely fell off the radar since its announcement in 2020. A recent trailer has rekindled interest in the game, though, which will do away with the open-world gameplay of its predecessor and offer a more linear experience.

This will also be a more mature game than earlier entries in the series, with game producer Naoki Yoshida saying that Final Fantasy 16 features “a story with difficult adult themes”. This will also be a PS5 exclusive at launch, although it will likely hit other platforms such as PC in the future like Final Fantasy 15 did. This would be a good thing taking into account how good this latest instalment in Square Enix’s fantasy series looks in the trailer below, which showcases the game’s massive Eikon creatures, gameplay and world.

Release date: Summer 2023. Available on PS5.
