The new Final Fantasy XVI trailer reveals that the land of Valisthea has been slowly dying for the past fifteen hundred years. The light of the Mothercrystals, which bless the land, has been fading. In order to hold on to their blessings, the trailer suggests, the realms of Valistheathe Grand Duchy of Rosaria, the Holy Empire of Sanbreque, the Dhalmekian Republic, the Iron Kingdom, and the Kingdom of Waloedare prepared for war. Sanbreque even goes so far as to invade Rosaria, with the mysterious Dominant of Ifrit summoning their Eikon during the attack.

Much like in the previous trailer, several Eikons are shown, including Odin and Bahamut. This trailer, however, reveals that the Dominants can also perform partial summonings of their Eikons, utilizing their powers while staying mostly humanlike. Joshua Rosfield, Hugo Kupka, and Benedikta Harman are shown performing partial transformations into Phoenix, Titan, and Garuda, respectively, with the latter two using those forms to fight against Clive. At the end of the trailer, a tapestry depicting the Eikons is seen, and the narrator warns of “a war of the Eikons.”

Final Fantasy XVI will release for the PlayStation 5 in Summer 2023.
