Final Fantasy XVI Demo Save Carries Over to Full Game

In the PlayStation Blog discussion of the Final Fantasy XVI hands-on session, it came up that the demo save data will carry over to the full game. Senior Specialist, Content Communications Gillen McAllister brought it up while discussing the features of Square Enix’s upcoming RPG. However, the announcement only told us that detail and didn’t reveal when this trial will appear. It only noted the Final Fantasy XVI demo “drops ahead of the full game’s launch.” Previously, Producer Naoki Yoshida noted in an interview that we could expect the trial to appear about two weeks before the game launches.

The reveal did tease what this initial Final Fantasy XVI demo will entail. It will look at early moments from Clive’s life. Part of this segment also came up during general preview sessions. This means we’ll see Clive when he’s younger and potentially serving as a First Shield of Rosaria to protect his brother Joshua.

Final Fantasy XVI will come to the PlayStation 5 on June 22, 2023. There will be a six-month exclusivity period. There is also a PS5 console bundle with a digital copy. A demo will also appear for the game ahead of its debut, but there’s no set date for its appearance yet.
