Final Fantasy XVI Rated in Brazil; 16+

Brazil’s Ministry of Justice recently rated the upcoming Final Fantasy XVI game from publisher Square Enix. The rating board has decided that the recommended rating for the game should be for ages 16 and up due to Sexual Content, Sensitive Themes, and Violence. This is, admittedly, a bit surprising to me, as I had initially thought it would be rated for ages 18 and up, but oh well.

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.

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.”

Final Fantasy XVI is releasing for PlayStation 5 in Summer 2023.
