During Tokyo Game Show 2022, new official art for the next mainline entry in the Final Fantasy franchise, Final Fantasy XVI, has surfaced.
Thanks to Twitter user @11masa0000 for sharing this new illustration on Twitter in rather high quality. Three of the title’s key characters are prominently featured.
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.”
