FINAL FANTASY XVI for PlayStation 5 will be published worldwide in the summer of 2023, SQUARE ENIX said today. With this announcement came a new video for the game, called "Dominance," words from the game's director and co-producer, new facts on the game's cast, and new environments and scenery screenshots.

As FINAL FANTASY XVI Producer, Naoki Yoshida put it, "The new teaser provides players a greater image of what really gaming will be like. When it comes to high-octane combat, Clive Rosfield brandishing a complete array of strikes specific to the game's several Eikons (summons). Epic battles amongst the Eikons aren't the only thing to look forward to."

New Eikons have been shown off, as has the action-packed fighting system and the flexibility it affords players, according to FINAL FANTASY XVI director Hiroshi Takai. Finally, I'm pleased to report that the game is entirely playable from beginning to end. However, we're currently tackling optimization and brush-up issues as we move into our last push." Please continue to check back for updates in the meanwhile. Our utmost effort will not keep you waiting for too long!"

"In the last stretch of development, the team, led by Hiroshi Takai, polishes their work in preparation for launch. We're hoping to achieve a white-knuckle ride that rivals even the most exhilarating roller-coaster with the PlayStation 5 platform," Yoshida said. "So, get a hold of a seat belt. Nearing the end of the wait."
