Final Fantasy XVI will provide players with a series of aids, especially intended for those who are not proficient in action-oriented battle systems. In an interview with Famitsu , Naoki Yoshida, producer of the video game, has referred to a mode focused on history , which opens the doors for less experienced users to tackle the adventure with certain assistance.
“In the story-focused mode, AI-implemented accessories are provided from the start, and Clive’s basic controls can be changed” by equipping or unequipping them. According to Yoshida, one of those items is able to block attacks more easily . You can also perform “spectacular combos as you go from summons to abilities simply by pressing certain buttons.”
All of these support options give players the ability to customize attacking and defensive techniques based on their style of play. Unlike other titles in the saga, the sixteenth installment opts for a combat system totally focused on action , so the classic turns are banished in this particular chapter.
PS5 temporal exclusive
Final Fantasy XVI is in development exclusively for PS5, although its exclusive on the Sony console is temporary, as happened with Final Fantasy VII Remake, which came out later on PC. The video game will not go on sale until summer 2023 , as revealed by Square Enix itself in the most recent trailer, which was shown at the State of Play. In addition, it is the first of the main series to receive the Mature classification.
Square Enix plans several major titles for the coming months. On October 11, Forspoken will be marketed for PS5 and PC, while in winter it will be the turn of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion , the remake of the PSP classic. In this case, it can be enjoyed on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Nintendo Switch and PC.
