After being rumored, Square Enix revealed gameplay from Final Fantasy XVI, and it has all the spiky hair, swords, and angst we want in a mainline title. This one looks much more Medieval than the last one, but it’s still Final Fantasy. There are chocobos and a new Shiva and Bahamat on display. It also looks like this one may have a more mature story.
We can’t be sure of much until we receive the official word, but the end of the trailer confirms this one is exclusive to PlayStation consoles. It will be on the PC too, but Sony is making sure this important franchise stays in its walled garden. We can’t wait to see more, and we’ll be sure to bring you all the info once it’s available.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
