Final Fantasy XVI producer Naoki Yoshida appeared this week on the Tokyo FM radio show One Morning, where he briefly talked about the development of the upcoming game. Much like Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy VII Remake, the latest chapter in Square Enix’s long-running RPG series will be more “action-oriented,” but not at the expense of its story.
“Final Fantasy XVI is quite action-oriented. It’s a Final Fantasy featuring story and action,” Yoshida said during the radio show as translated by Gematsu. “We really want players to enjoy the story, so we’re preparing a mode for players who want to focus on story. Since we have quite the substantial support actions, we’re of course preparing something easy to operate and smooth to play.”
As for the actual storyline, Yoshida hinted at a tale of hardship that adults could relate to, as he felt that certain challenges could only be understood by an older generation that had experienced “the good and bad of reality.”
