    Final Fantasy XVI Launches Teaser Website Featuring Key Artwork,
    Setting and Main Characters


    Today, Square Enix Ltd., launched the official teaser website for the latest standalone mainline title in the FINAL FANTASY series, FINAL FANTASY XVI. The website showcases newly revealed key artwork for the ground-breaking, all-new action RPG (“role-playing game”), featuring the game’s protagonist, Clive Rosfield, as well as a set of character illustrations and vignettes that offer a glimpse of the connections between them. The website also presents a deeper look into the setting of FINAL FANTASY XVI, the complex realm of Valisthea, a land blessed in the light of the Mothercrystals —glittering mountains of crystal that tower over the world below.

Unexpected events set Clive on a dark and dangerous road to revenge.

    FINAL FANTASY XVI is a single player action-RPG being developed for the PlayStation 5 console (“PS5”). This title is not yet rated.

    It looks rubbish as a mainline Final Fantasy title. Especially in terms of graphics. Totally rubbish.
    I am only interested in Project Athia.
    Final Fantasy is overdone, it is just a cash cow being milked. I now ignore it as much as I can.
    The last Final Fantasy that ever stunned me graphically was Final Fantasy XIII. That was out of this world.

    I think it looks amazing and I really like the main characters design. Nothing too fancy but still looks good.

    Teaser site already? Dang, considering how long FF 15 was in development (counting from Versus 13) I wonder if FF 16 will make it to the PS5 at all, or if it'll be a PS6 release title xD

    The plot seems cringy and I'm not fond of the whole "everything we knew was a lie, everything is bad, we have to fight the system" whatever. t's been too overused. Just give me a cheery looking FF game with a dark plot like FF9 and I'll be happy. No need to make everything dark and gritty.

    Project Athia is definitely interesting than FFXVI.
    Hard pass on this one.
    I'd rather they just finish and complete Final Fantasy VII Remake.

    And get a new character designer. I'd be impressed if one of these games, they get a regular guy without an emo haircut as the main character to make them stand out from every other main character. How about a bald main character? Just anything to differentiate whoever the game is centering around not revolve around another Zack-look-alike.

    I am glad Project Athia has nothing to do with Final Fantasy. FF is over (and that is a good thing).
    I hope that Project Athia never becomes anything to do with FF. Certainly at least not in cannon. Knowing Square Enix, I unfortunately am afraid my hope will be broken.

    Honestly they are all pretty self contained, you wouldn't gain much understanding from playing the other games first

    It always amazes me to see how long this franchise has survived without ever having a real writer on staff. Clearly all their budget goes into graphics, voice acting, animation, gameplay, and the truck loads of medication they use to keep the main story writer's dementia under control long enough to string together a collection of barely coherent words.

    All you gotta know about the lore this: shiny crystals magic lol, anime hair guy good, mean anime hair guy bad.

    Add to that a generic fantasy setting and generic anime plot, and you got yerself a final fantasy.

    I don't remember mainline Final Fantasy games being action RPG.
    And the damned emo main character is already old. It was in FFVIII.

    I must be getting old, or something.

    Apart from already mentioned emo hairdo , I still wonder why Squeenix will make this time exclusive to just PS5.
