PlayStation has recently launched an official hub page for the Final Fantasy franchise, primarily meant for those with little to no history with the series. The page briefly overviews what Final Fantasy comprises, its history across PlayStation, and more.
Additionally, recommended first-time games are listed alongside popular releases and trailers of both mainline entries and spinoffs.
One noteworthy comment is the following:
“Every numbered Final Fantasy game from Final Fantasy VII has appeared on a PlayStation console and all, apart from Final Fantasy XI, are playable on the current generation of systems. ”
Final Fantasy XVI is now available for PlayStation 5.
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.”
