Final Fantasy XVI Reveals New Illustration of Waoled’s Constant Knight, Sleipnir Harbard

Square Enix has posted a brand-new illustration of Sleipnir Harbard from Final Fantasy XVI. He’s the lord commander of the armies throughout the Kingdom of Waoled and is alternatively known as the Constant Knight. The latter title is a result of never-waning loyalty to King Barnabas Tharmr, as well as his cruelty.

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.” Moreover, “there will be a “comprehensive support system in place for players who aren’t too confident with action games.”
