In the long tunnel of AAA releases that we have just started with this new year, we find Final Fantasy XVI. After having waited for it for many months, the game from Square Enix’s flagship license is revealed in small touches. Except that between each preview, some detractors have a field day. Present during the PAX East, the game delighted the greatest number while closing the valve of the players who attacked its atmosphere considered too dark.
FF16 strongly criticized for its too dark decorations
On the other side of the Atlantic, video games are celebrating. In the aisles of PAX East in Boston, we came across Naoki Yoshida, the illustrious producer behind the resurrection of Final Fantasy XIV and the revival of Final Fantasy for its sixteenth numbered episode, which did not come through empty-handed. During the weekend, we were able to discover new unreleased excerpts exclusivity PlayStation 5expected for June 22, 2023. Once again, these unseen sequences have revived the craze… and awakened the detractors! For them, each new portion presented was conducive to dropping some heartfelt criticism.
Over the various videos published to promote this sixteenth encrypted opus, there is a reproach that often came up in the mouths of the most fussy players. Like the House of the Dragon series, which came under fire from spectators because of its sometimes very dark and unreadable atmosphere on screen, Final Fantasy XVI had faced the same admonitions. For a handful of gamers, the darkness did not honor the work of the Square Enix teams. Yes, this new episode of Final Fantasy will have the right to a dark plot and a resolutely adult tone, but all is not black. It’s also an episode that oozes clarity, as clips aired as part of PAX East demonstrated..
The most beautiful and nervous Final Fantasy ever created? There is a big chance!
Without going overboard and without drawing a grandiloquent trailer, Final Fantasy XVI revealed itself through small scattered extracts on social networks. The one that circulated the most this weekend is most certainly the one that made us travel in more detail in the lands of Valisthea. For nearly two minutes, we follow Clive Rosfield in various and varied environments allowing us to become more familiar with the atmosphere that emerges from this sixteenth episode.. And contrary to what we had seen and what could have been the source of criticism, FF16 looks indeed resplendent, silencing the denigrators.
Beyond shining with these new visuals, this presentation Final Fantasy XVI confirmed to us, among other things, that we would indeed discover three stages in the life of Clive Rosfield. His appearance at PAX was also the opportunity to reveal, succinctly, its menus, the loading times related to “fast travel” and, above all, the dynamism of its fights — a subject that has also given food for thought to players with the harshest criticisms — and the fact that we can… take a few seconds to have a gesture of affection towards our faithful companion Torgal ! To discover more things, in particular its role-playing aspect, Naoki Yoshida gave us an appointment in April, and we are more than impatient!
