In an interview with Esports Extras, Yoshi-P gave us a lot of information about what is set to be one of the most powerful releases of the coming year. To begin with, one of the main aspects of any RPG is the story, and the story of Final Fantasy XVI is something that fills us all with curiosity. According to the Japanese creative, XVI will be about a group of nations blessed by the power of a crystal and that have an eikon (an invocation) with great destructive capabilities. Since all nations have one, they live in a tense truce, similar to a cold warbut everything goes awry when the power of the crystals of some kingdoms begins to fade.

On the other hand, the companions of Esports Extrashave informed us that there will be something that very sharply separates Final Fantasy XVI from the previous numbered title of the saga: your world will not be open. According to the producer, this direction was taken in order to create a better narrative, making each place feel more different and contained.

Another of the great unknowns surrounding the game was the presence of companions and the possibility of playing with a character other than Clive. Regarding the first, the protagonist of the game will have different companions during his adventures, but they will be AI drivenfocusing only on controlling the hero of the game.

Of course, managing only one character has its benefits, and that is that the game will offer us a very, very deep degree of customization. With a style of skills similar to what was seen in Final Fantasy IX, equipping the skills of the eikons will allow us to learn them and be able to combine them to make our own personal buildsomething that would be difficult to manage with more playable characters in the party.

For its part, another of the things that caught the attention of the last trailer was the fact of the eikons fights. Speaking to GameSpot, Yoshida has confirmed that these matches will have several very different phases. In addition to that, neither will be the same as the other, making, for example, the fight with Titan will be more like something out of a fighting game, while others will have a different format.
