Final Fantasy XVI Pre-Celebration Live Stream Segment-Specific VODs Officially Uploaded

Following Square Enix hosting the special Final Fantasy XVI pre-launch celebration event that was in-person and streamed live, the developer has uploaded segmented VODs of the showing onto their official YouTube channel.

Various facets of the game were discussed and highlighted throughout this event, including the soundtrack, combat system, and storyline.

In case you missed them, check out the planned pre-launch and post-launch updates for Final Fantasy XVI.

Final Fantasy XVI is set to be 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.”
