In a recent interview during One Morning with Naoki Yoshida, more details about Final Fantasy XVI were shared! The game is “quite action-oriented” according to Yoshida while the focus on story is intact. Although the game is character action driven, a mode will be present for players who just want to focus on the story. This is good for players who normally don’t play action games or want a more casual change of pace. Yoshida also describes his outlook on the theme of FF XVI, saying he “wants to create a world (Final Fantasy) that those who know the good and bad of reality can be passionate about”. These were the main takeaways for now and we can’t wait for more details about FF XVI to emerge.
