Six years have passed since the last mainline installment in the decidedly not-so-final Final Fantasy series, making this one of the largest gaps between games in the series’ 35 years of history–though all that waiting seems to be for good reason. We only have one trailer for Final Fantasy 16, but what we’ve seen makes the game look like a high-fantasy epic combining the grandeur of older titles with the cutting-edge technology of newer games, making us hopeful that this next entry will be well-worth the wait.
However, with Summer Game Fest Live and plenty of Not-E3 showcases just around the corner, it seems likely our wait is almost over. In the next few weeks, we expect to hear a bit more about the highly-anticipated RPG–and maybe even get a release date. Until then, here’s everything we know about Final Fantasy 16 so far.
Final Fantasy 16 might not have an official release date, but a recent interview with the game’s producer, Naoki Yoshida, makes it sound like the game is coming sooner than later. On May 5, Yoshida told UNIQLO magazine the game is near the end of its development, before sharing a bit more about what fans can expect.
