Final Fantasy XVI Reveals Pre-Launch Celebration Schedule

Today Square Enix had a juicy reveal to share related to its upcoming mainline Final Fantasy game Final Fantasy XVI.

I was silently hoping there would be some additional media like they did with FFXV. The demo, anime and movie added quite a bit to the story back then.

Except, the anime and the movie did a better job of telling a story than most of XV's game did. And it wasn't even included IN the game it was based off. Don't get me wrong, I actually really like FF XV. I think it's a genuinely great game despite it's story being disconnected and rushed at times. I just wish they'd done a better job of focusing all those story elements into the game itself. Rather than relying on outside media to do it before the game even released.

i watched the movies ... announcement thing and it was awkward as hell.

i liked the game but i shouldnt need to watch or read stuff to get actual story, just because the game doesnt provide it properly

saint_seya105d ago

Only game so far i paid in full before it was released, i hope i dont regret it :D

P_Bomb104d ago

Hey I’m with ya in spirit, lol! Just paid in full as well. Let’s go! 👊

We'll you'd think the announcement of DLC would have hinted at that. If the game did poorly they would have just moved on.

And if you bring up Forespoken DLC they sold a season pass at launch and had to do it.

That article should have never been approved to begin with, since stock market "news" is invalid on N4G.
It's also based on the literal fake news alleging that Kiryu-san said that FFXIV's sales disappointed.
I've been saying that was fake news for ages (the distortion was obvious like the sun), and today we got the receipts. Unfortunately, the many sites that ran away with that narrative without doing a shred of research will get away with it because they always do.

Wait for that Takashi Mochizuki spin!

I wonder what small IP they have in mind. I would love a Parasite Eve game that plays like the RERemakes and keeps the survival horror tone.

VersusDMC3d ago

We just got divine force and second story R(demo is on psn by the way) out in nov.

But i would like to see a AAA star ocean that looks as good as FFXVI or FF7R.

shinoff21833d ago

O yea. I got my star ocean 2 paid off, just playing the waiting game. I played 10 minutes of the demo and deleted it. Seen all I need to see.

Put about 250 plus hours into divine force. It would be dope as hell if a star ocean got the ff treatment.

Give me more PE please! I never got to play "the third birthday" but I would love to see the series revamped.

VersusDMC3d ago

Don't try the third birthday. It's as much Parasite eve as Dino crisis 3 is Dino Crisis.

The RE games sell well so i don't know why they won't make a PE game in the same style. Diversify their portfolio.

This ongoing saga hurts my brain. The game sold 3 million at launch. Case closed. The game sold great.
