Producer Naoki Yoshida said a new FFXVI trailer was on the way. Well, it turns out it debuted during the June 2, 2022 State of Play. It also ended up with a Summer 2023 launch window.
The new trailer begins with someone bringing up the Dominants. It then brings up that the power people use “wears away” at them. Hints of another war appear.
From there, the trailer goes over the FFXVI combat system. It shows fights against various foes. Both humans and traditional summons we’ve seen for years show up. The trailer ends with a number of familiar summons mentioned before showing them in action. Phoenix, Titan, Garuda, Ramuh, Shiva, Ifrit, Odin, and Bahamut all show up.
Here’s the newest look at the FFXVI State of Play June 2022 trailer.
We already knew a new FFXIV trailer and additional announcements were coming. In December 2021, a delay was confirmed and a Spring 2022 window was set for announcements. Then in April 2022, Yoshida said it was nearing the end of its development. Once the June 2022 State of Play was announced, many suspected FFXVI would appear.
Final Fantasy XVI is in development for the PlayStation 5 and will be out in Summer 2023.
