When Remaining Fantasy XVI was first introduced in the direction of the top of 2020, I used to be virtually constructive that the sport was a next-gen-enhanced continuation of Remaining Fantasy XIV’s MMO formulation. The visuals had been paying homage to A Realm Reborn’s fantastical artwork course and Inventive Enterprise Unit III’s involvement spoke for itself. Nonetheless, the remainder of the launch trailer disproved my authentic assumptions; Remaining Fantasy XVI is probably going going to be a solo, narrative-focused expertise much like fan-favorite, basic Remaining Fantasy video games. Producer Naoki Yoshida virtually confirmed this in a current radio present speak. The truth is, the newest installment within the JRPG franchise, in line with Yoshida, will include a straightforward mode.
Yoshida was initially speaking about the way forward for the favored Remaining Fantasy MMO; a venture that he is been concerned with since its authentic launch again in 2013. As questions began to focus totally on the following chapter within the illustrious franchise, Yoshida couldn’t assist however supply a couple of phrases about what the dev staff is engaged on: “We actually need gamers to benefit from the story, so we’re making ready a mode for gamers who need to deal with story,” Yoshida said. “Since we’ve got fairly the substantial assist actions, we’re after all making ready one thing straightforward to function and clean to play. Don’t fear an excessive amount of…gamers who aren’t good at motion video games.”
Apparently, Remaining Fantasy XVI is slated to be extraordinarily action-oriented; I can not assist however consider a cross between FFXV and FFVII Remake’s fight methods, which symbolize Sq. Enix’s current profitable forays into real-time mechanics. This additionally makes me surprise if the upcoming JRPG goes to be tough.
As a long-time Remaining Fantasy fan, I’m trying ahead to seeing how Remaining Fantasy XVI builds upon the successes of its predecessors in addition to the methods during which it’ll distinguish itself for a next-gen viewers. Will you be diving into FFXVI’s straightforward mode, or do you propose on braving the wild cactuars and malboro’s on a a lot larger issue?
