Final Fantasy XVI Wins Several Awards at EQUINOX LATAM Game Awards 2023

Square Enix has announced that the latest mainline entry in the Final Fantasy series, Final Fantasy XVI, has won numerous awards at the EQUINOX LATAM Game Awards 2023.

Said awards include Best Soundtrack, Best Art Direction, Best PlayStation Game, and two awards for strong utilization of the Spanish language.

You can view the list of won awards below:

  • Best PlayStation Game
  • Best Original Soundtrack
  • Best Art Direction
  • Best Game Adapted to Spanish
  • Spanish LATAM Voice Over – José Ángel Torres as Clive Rosfield

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 game was confirmed to receive two paid DLCs and a PC port currently in development.

11 songs from Final Fantasy XVI are joining Theatrhythm Final Bar Line.

Final Fantasy XVI is available on PlayStation 5.
