Final Fantasy XVI Shares Artwork Depicting Holy Empire of Sanbreque Coastline

Square Enix has continued sharing official artwork for Final Fantasy XVI, the latest being the coastline of the Holy Empire of Sanbreque. This is the region where the Dominant of Bahamut resides, Dion Lesage, who is also the empire’s crown prince.

Final Fantasy XVI is a more action-heavy entry than its predecessors, with a Devil May Cry V designer even taking the helm. Throughout the title, players will control the protagonist, Clive, as he confronts various Dominants, humans who have been cursed with the power to become Eikons.

Clive is the “First Shield of Rosaria,” sworn to protect his younger brother Joshua, who’s the Dominant of Phoenix. However, following a certain tragedy, Clive swears revenge on the Dark Eikon Ifrit.

The producer, Naoki Yoshida, describes this game as akin to his experience with the first Final Fantasy, as “playing the lead in an epic motion picture.” The reasoning for this title’s action-oriented approach and more classical fantasy setting was to “appeal to as wide a range of gamers as possible.”

The Echoes of the Fallen DLC content “unlocks a whole new story, battles, weapons, accessories, level cap, and more. For players who have completed the required quests, this new adventure begins before the base game’s final battle, as strange, dark crystals begin to circulate on the black market. Players will follow Clive and his friends during their investigations as they encounter a group of suspicious traders, leading them to a long-abandoned Fallen tower known as the Sagespire. There, they will unravel the terrible secrets that await within.”

The Rising Tide DLC will launch in Spring 2024.
