Following the launch of the Final Fantasy XVI Echoes of the Fallen DLC, Square Enix has shared new artwork for one of the new characters introduced in the scenario, Famiel.
Throughout the DLC, he’s somewhat of a chaotic force who strings along his two co-workers as they’re on the run from Clive and company. In Japanese, Famiel is voiced by Ryota Suzuki.
Final Fantasy XVI Echoes of the Fallen is the first of two DLCs for Final Fantasy XVI, with it already available. The second DLC, The Rising Tide, is planned to launch during Spring 2024. Further, it’s expected to take around ten hours to complete.
Final Fantasy XVI Echoes of the Fallen adds a new quest taking place near the base game’s conclusion. Combat is the primary focus with a brand-new dungeon with several endgame-level enemies and a truly thrilling boss encounter at the end of it all.

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.”
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.”
Final Fantasy XVI is available on PlayStation 5.
