Square Enix has revealed the official English lyrics for one of Final Fantasy XVI’s vocal themes, “Ascension.” This “dramatic song” is described as “a condensed representation of Dion’s life.” Dion’s the Dominant of the Eikon Bahamut, and he has become one of the fan-favorite characters following the game’s launch, primarily due to later story developments.
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.”
The Final Fantasy XVI soundtrack will launch on July 19, 2023.
