The official Final Fantasy XVI teaser website is now live. And with it comes new information about the scenario and the characters. Despite this just being a teaser website, there is a lot of information to take in.
This includes a brief introduction to Valisthea, the land in which Final Fantasy XVI takes place, and the six factions currently listed on the website – The Grand Dutchy of Rosaria, The Holy Empire of Sanbreque, The Kingdom of Waloed, The Dhalmekin Republic, The Iron Kingdom, and The Crystalline Dominion. If Rosaria sounds familiar to Final Fantasy fans, it is because this name was used in Final Fantasy XII, albeit with a different style of English spelling (the Japanese is the same). Each area has received a brief synopsis, detailing the style of government unique to each faction.
Additionally, more information has been disclosed about Joshua Rosfield, who made his debut in the Awakening Trailer, and the presumed main character Clive Rosfield. A character briefly shown in the trailer, Jill Warrick, has also received a short biography detailing her involvement in the upcoming story.
The Final Fantasy XVI teaser website has quite a bulk of information for users to read through for the time being.
And finally, there is a message from Final Fantasy XVI Producer Naoki Yoshida, it reads:
Final Fantasy XVI producer (that’s right, just producer) Naoki Yoshida here. How did you enjoy the trailer? The exclusive footage, comprised of both battles and cutscenes running in real time, represents but a fraction of what our team has accomplished since the start of development on this, an all-new Final Fantasy game. In that span, the team’s size has grown from a handful of core members to a full-fledged unit that continues to polish and build upon what they have created so far, all to provide players an experience unmatched in terms of story and gameplay.
Our next big information reveal is scheduled for 2021, so in the meantime, I expect everyone to have fun speculating, as we have a lot in store—not only for the newest entry in the series, Final Fantasy XVI, but for Final Fantasy XIV, too. Needless to say, I’ll be working hard on both!
