September 2020 Trailer[edit source]
Thought this info might be covered since the story so far covers the protagonist’s childhood and adulthood. The childhood arc revolves on the hero as a ward of his village’s archduke and protector of the archduke’s son Joshua, whose horror from witnessing his father’s murder causes him to manifest two Eikons of Fire: Phoenix and Ifrit. The adulthood arc has the hero, motivated by revenge, being a soldier who appears to be in service to the invading empire seeking to acquire the Mother Crystal and eliminate the threat that the Eikons pose.
Here’s hoping that more info is presented soon to complete this first impression, especially the official spelling of Joshua’s name.18.104.22.168 02:45, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

Names of the realms[edit source]
Anyone notice some references in the names of the Realms, that are familiar in some way? Well, here's what I noticed:
- Grand Duchy of Rosaria - Located in the western part of Valisthea. The name resembles that of Rozarria, an empire from Final Fantasy XII, located in the western part of Ivalice, that is the name of the world of Final Fantasy XII. Coincidence?
- Dhalmekian Empire - closely resembles the name Dalmasca, that was a central region in Final Fantasy XII
- The Iron Kingdom - When I read the description, I couldn't help but notice, that it strongly resembles The Iron Islands from Game of Thrones. The Iron kingdom are a group islands, that are isolated and aloof from other nations. The Iron islands in Game of Thrones, though part of the Seven Kingdoms, are much the same; isolated and they don't rely on anyone but themselves. Their warriors are called Ironborn, and in Iron Kingdom their people/warriors are called Ironblood. So much in common, I think Game of Thrones has been a partial inspiration in Final Fantasy XVI setting. Sonic87, 30.10.2020, 12.00 UTC +2.
