The kingdoms of Final Fantasy 16 are ready for war in the latest trailer for the game released today. The leaders of the land are playing politics from the safety of their castles, in what looks to be an intriguing and complex medieval political story. Oh, and of course there’s the gigantic summons, enormous explosions and lots of bloodshed in roaring new combat sequences.
The new “Ambition” trailer sets the scene for what is to come in Final Fantasy 16. The world of Valisthea has some breathtaking landscapes, as we’re introduced to the nations that call the land home. The trailer shows us the Dominants, men and women who hold a mighty power belonging to the iconic summons, now known as Eikons, of the Final Fantasy series. The plot follows Clive Rosfield, called the “First Shield of Rosaria” in today’s press release, on his mission to protect his younger brother Joshua, who is the Dominant of the Phoenix. Twists and turns change Clive’s path, and lead him on a quest for revenge.
In a tweet from the Final Fantasy 16 Twitter account, the game’s producer Naoki Yoshida confirms “the team has turned the corner and entered the home stretch.” Hiroshi Takai, director of Final Fantasy 16, echoes this sentiment saying “as the game edges closer to completion, the team has turned its full attention to debugging and final adjustments.”
