A recent newsletter sent out by Square Enix may have just confirmed that Final Fantasy 16 will have a M rating.
Will be my first Final Fantasy game. So excited!
You should really, play the Final Fantasy 7 remake it's a great entry point for first timers to final fantasy
Yup. Planning in doing so. Wondering what PS5 enhancements FF7R will get.
Will be quite interesting. Last ff game with an M rating was probably type-0 that I can remember and that wasnt even a mainline ff.
I believe that is the only M rated FF.
FFvs13 was most likely going to be an M-rated game. The early trailers had blood and gore in it. I reckon that FF16 isn't that far off from being finished. No way will S-E release an M-rated game on a mega-budget like FF7R which took 5 years to make. The article states how Madam M massage scene had to be toned down to keep it T-rated. If FF16 has been under development for at least a year, then it's possible that it might be out sometime late next year or 2022 max. If however it goes into classic FF development hell, then expect blood to be removed.
I did get the vibes this was a darker story when they showed the trailer but I'm still surprised it's going to be m just because se usually want to appeal to a large audience
Yep. Same. I always assumed FF titles were kid friendly since most associate the franchise with relatively wholesomeness.
Some of the games, such as FF VIII, deal with some really adult-oriented themes. I wouldn't say the series is kid friendly.
Yeah, it's about time they acquiesce to the reality that FF is really not for a general audience. The most successful SP games this gen are all squarely in the T or M rating category anyway, they might as well embrace the darker tones in their games.
Games can be bought online alot more these days meaning not many ppl will have issues getting the games. Plus GTA sells god like numbers, as well as CoD so I don't think they got much to worry about
Good!. Well, although i doubt i can see it as a true dark, gruesome, cruel, matured story because there are chocobos in it (and maybe moogles too)
That sounds stupid saying that, chocobos are like horses use in war from what I seen they ran over a guy and I think plucked his head I believe.
Yeah, a cute "horse". But i can live with that.
You're right, cute creatures can't exist in a true, realistic, mature worl- -sees a squirrel running outside my window- ...nvm
The guys head getting cut off and the blood being sprayed on the child made this pretty obvious.... maybe it’s just me.
Yah honestly not a fan so far, doesn’t feel like FF
You should play the older FF. This is just classic FF with next-gen graphics.
@kaedro I've played most of the original FF's, this is way different, starting with the combat. Was hoping for at least something like the ATB or something somewhat turned based. Since they've had FFXV which had terrible action combat and FF7 which has good action combat, its time to make a change if we want it to go back to a classic FF feel.
combat wise yeah it is, but they've been heading this was after 12 TBH. A more action geared FF As for tje setting, yeah this is more in line with classic
This feels more like FF than the last SEVERAL FF games.
i mean we knew that from the trailer. All the blood definitely indicated this.
Final Fantasy XVI turning into Final Fantasy XXX! Looking forward to hearing more.
good, a mature FF is always very welcome.
I am really excited for this. Never played 15, but I will play this one
was that not obvious from the trailer?
YES! I've been waiting for this! Now just make a compelling story, interesting party members and for the love of God let us explore the entire world with an airship like in FF 1-9.
PLEASE be true. Type-0 was Mature rated and it was underrated.
Its a pity they didn't do this with the FF7 Remake instead of censoring everything (following the trail of blood at Shinra HQ was removed) some of the main characters not dying like in the PS1 version. Im questioning whether Aerith is going to die in the second part.
In the picture, under the rating: PROVISIONAL
I'm loving the new direction Square Enix is going with Final Fantasy. Day 1 on PS5.
Well, since there's blood hopefully they go full throttle and add in nudity, higher curse words like fuck, and whatever else they can put in.
M is not the highest rating out there. AO is possible. I doubt SE will push that boundary. I am guessing this is for explicit gore scenes and partial nudity. More like an American soft R rating.
Ah yes, Square Enix in the nude. NIce.
Well, Final Fantasy is dead. Really don't know why square is going into that direction with my once favorite franchise but they totally killed it for me with FFXV.
People talk about franchises that need to take a break.... LOL. FF is at the top of my list.
