Naoki Yoshida, the producer of Final Fantasy 16, said the next FF16 teaser would be released in October, giving fans another look at the next entry in one of the best fantasy game series. The announcement was made during the Tokyo Games Show, during the Japan Game Awards.
Yoshida is asked when fans will expect to hear more about Final Fantasy XVI while on the stage to receive the award on behalf of Square Enix, as previously announced in the autumn (found at 47:50 in this video note that the game is in Japanese).
Yoshida replies (via Gematsu) that he hasnt had a chance to speak with the marketing or PR team for FF16 recently, so he isn't sure how much he can say. However, he does say that I'll be able to release the trailer in the next month or so, and after that, I'll be able to provide an approximate timeline for when it will be released.
Final Fantasy 16 will be released in summer 2023, according to a Sony State of Play livestream. Players will be able to experience Final Fantasy 16 summons, known as Eikons, while other party members will be AI-driven.
The Final Fantasy 16 story may revolve around the quest for aether, one of the greatest Final Fantasy energy sources and described by Yoshida as akin to magical oil, while Yoshidas other main game, FFXIV, one of the greatest MMOs on PC, is currently planning its next narrative arc, according to Yoshida.
