Medieval and crystals, I mean we could say it has more in common with Final Fantasy 1 at that point.

Ivalice has a blend of medieval and futuristic technology. I honestly, don’t get any of that vibe from what I’ve seen in the trailers. If anything it feels more in-line with FF11 or FF14.

Funny you say 14 as that's the thumbnail picture used!

Although, I have noticed Ivalice in it too. Hell, they even have a town ALMOST named Dalmasca with "The Dhalmekian Republic."

Which could easily be spun as an ancient version of Dalmasca.

Although to be fair. I noticed the "connections" early on in the games development, but have slowly come to expect to be wrong. It would certainly be cool, but I doubt it will be connected to any specific FF before it.

Some of the same people that worked on FF12 worked on FF16.

I mean, it looks identical to XIV visually, and the Mothercrystal is a thing / character in XIV, as are Eikons. Also, it seems to do politics like XIV does - very broad-brush, more focused on the aesthetics and the stilted language. Ivalice gets a bit more in the weeds with its politics. Also, games like XII and its sequel have a highly futuristic setting.
