Final Fantasy XVI Game Trailer

In this war of gods, where do mortals belong?

Final Fantasy XVI tagline

Final Fantasy XVI is the sixteenth installment in the Final Fantasy main series, and is the second of the series to be released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Unveiled at E3 2016, the game is the flagship of Square Enix's Ultima Chronicles: Final Fantasy XVI project. The game runs on the Lighter Genesis engine, a proprietary engine built for Square Enix's Ultima Chronicles games.

The game was released in Japan on December 17, 2017, and March 9, 2018 for North America and Europe - both of these the same as Final Fantasy XIII. A sequel titled Final Fantasy XVI-2 was announced on E3 2018. Further sequels including Final Fantasy XVI-3, Final Fantasy XVI-4, Final Fantasy XVI-5 and Final Fantasy Finis XVI have been released.

Gameplay

Joystick, Touchscreen & Motion Control

In the PS4 and One ports of the game, the game utilizes innovative LEAP technology. LEAP is a brand new, emerging motion control technology that supposedly is ultra sensitive and around "200x more sensitive than current technologies such as Kinect or Move". The main game developer, Ashwin Sharma, stated that although Square Enix has long wanted to incorporate motion control into their J-RPG games, conventional motion control did not accommodate RPG gaming. He said "current motion control technologies such as Kinect and Move are perfect for conventional action-adventure games as you can easily perform hacks and slashes, punches and kicks. However, RPG gaming, particularly Final Fantasy, requires you to scroll down menus a lot, choose, strategize and button press. For this reason, current motion control is not particularly viable."

He then commented on the game's Wii U port and the reasoning for why they put the game onto the Wii U: "Unlike current motion control, touchscreen technology is something else. Touchscreen is perfect for Final Fantasy as it takes out all that time spent scrolling in one touch. This is why we chose to port the game to the Wii U. Initially, the game was only to be used with the Playstation 4 and Xbox One for we felt that the Wii U could not graphically achieve what we hoped for. However, we quickly realized that compromising graphics may be a small price to pay if it means that people can have an enhanced gameplay experience. We realized the touchscreen of the Wii U could easily be the way forward for Final Fantasy."

He finally commented on the recently announced "LEAP" variations for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One: "We still felt extremely let down though with the Playstation 4 and Xbox One as we didn't want players to miss out on a greater game. This is when we approached LEAP. This innovative technology had already had me fixed, but I never thought of its possible applications to gaming. When someone proposed that we could use LEAP to create a fluid, interactive, motion controlled, sensitive, accurate and touchscreen-like gaming experience for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One gamers, it made perfect sense. LEAP is perfect as it is tracks the motion of your fingers, rather than the rest of your body, allowing you to replicate touchscreen on your TV using your PS4 and One. When we approached LEAP, they had been wanting to emerge into the game industry for a long time and felt that Final Fantasy could prove to be the perfect entrance into the gaming world. We quickly worked together, and came out with the brilliance that is Final Fantasy XVI on LEAP."

RTI

Final Fantasy XVI uses a system known as Real Time Interface or RTI. The premise of this system is to bring to "reality" the Command Synergy Battle battle-system used in Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2. The player has a list of commands that he/she can execute, each of which have specific "Charge Values". A Charge Value is representative of how long the command takes to be executed. A command such as "Fire" has a Charge Value of X meaning the attack is instantly executed. However, "Firaga" has a Charge Value of 3 meaning that the attack takes roughly 3 seconds to be executed.

The characters in the game has access to a variety of Modi. Modi are comparable to Final Fantasy XIII's Paradigms - roles which give players access to a variety of different skills. However, unlike Paradigms, Modi Shifting also rebalances your stats, meaning the players can do more damage in that particular role and makes the characters more balanced overall. The six roles that are initially available to the player are Soldier, Magician, Defender, Restrictor, Advancer and Purifier. These Modi can be upgraded by leveling them up and ultimately transforming them into upgraded versions of themselves with access to more abilities and greater stat bonuses.

Lumo Matrix

Within the game, the Lumo Matrix is the primary method of advancement. Based of the Sphere Grid from Final Fantasy X and the Crystarium system from Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2, the system allows players to build their Modi and their characters. MP (Matrix Points) is earned at the end of each battle and this used in the Lumo Matrix. The MP earned in battle is referred to as "Raw MP" as it hasn't been assigned to a particular Modi to be spent in the Lumo Matrix. Raw MP becomes "Modified MP" through a process known as "Modifying". Using a machine called a "Synthesizer", Raw MP can be assigned a Modi Attribute converting it into Modified MP. Modified MP is specific to each Modi and can be spent to advance its respective Modi (for example SOL-MP (Soldier Matrix Points) can only be used to advance in the Soldier Modi). Some Synthesizers, such as Industrial Synthesizers, need items known as "Dews" to be able to modify MP, however, not all Synthesizers require these.

The Lumo Matrix also enables users to directly enhance the players attributes. As well as using the Modi to increase stats, the player can use the "Base Matrix" to improve the stats of the character. Items referred to as "components" can be found, bought and dropped by enemies. Using a Synthesizer, these items can be used to create items known as "Cores" by a method called "Fusion". "Cores", like MP, can be assigned attributes and are initially in a "Raw" state. Using a Synthesizer, Cores can also be "fused" with items called "Gems". Gems have specific attributes. For example, a Green Gem carries a HP bonus attribute. Therefore, fusing a Green Gem with a Core will result in a Green Core, which can be spent in the Lumo Matrix to earn a HP bonus.

Scattered throughout the Lumo Matrix are also "Bonus Spheres" which assign extra attributes depending on which MP/Core is used on them.

Action Mode

The game also uses an "Action Mode", where attacks are directly inputted onto buttons and executed, using the D Pad to decide the "Level" of the attacks. For example, if the command "Fire" is inputted to the Triangle-button button, "Blizzard" is inputted to the Circle-button button and "Thunder" is inputted to the Square-button button, pressing these buttons with different directions can produce different moves.

Triangle-button = Fire
Triangle-button + → = Fira
Triangle-button + ← = Firaga
Circle-button = Blizzard
Circle-button + → = Blizzara
Circle-button + ← = Blizzaga
Square-button= Thunder
Square-button + ← = Thundaga
Square-button + ← = Thundaga

The moves assigned to each button is different for each Modi and can be chosen outside of battle. However by pressing the R1/RB button or tapping/motioning the icon on the screen using the Wii U or LEAP, you can select moves manually from a list.

Players can also be moved around using the Left Analog stick or left hand motioning.

Story

Chapter 0: Proposal

The story starts as Sky and Lola engage in a combat training in Sky's mansion. Lola plays a more tactical game, hiding in corners and throwing daggers towards Sky as Sky goes all out and attempts to scare Lola out of hiding. Lola jumps out at Sky and wrestles her to the ground, grabbing her sword from her clutches. However, Sky recoils and grabs Lola's main Twin-Daggers. As the two clash for a final time, Minim shuts down the training exercise and announces from a high point that lunch is ready. Sky and Lola bow, hand back their weapons, before embracing each other in a hug. As they out in high spirits from the training room, Minim guides them to the kitchen, serving a massive buffet. Sky is bewildered as to why Minim has cooked so much food. Suddenly, a number of armored soldiers emerge and surprise Sky - exclaiming it is her birthday. Sky is overwhelmed with gifts and thanks everyone for coming. After the party leaves, Lola and Minim come out with their own gifts for Sky - Minim giving her a sword sharpener and case and Lola giving her a survival dagger and attaching it to Sky's hamstring. Sky thanks them both as a figure rushes through the doors. Matthew rushes in offers Sky a bouquet of flowers and pecks her on the cheek. Sky questions him for picking flowers before rushing upstairs. Matthew is bewildered as Lola discusses how Sky has seemed disturbed recently.

Matthew rushes into Sky's room and notices that Sky is crying. As Sky notices Matthew's entrance, she stifles her tears. As Matthew probes further, Sky reveals that she has missed her family greatly over the past weeks - revealing that her sister, Rose, is at University and that her parents are deceased. Sky starts crying again and Matthew consoles her, saying that he is sure that wherever her parents are, he is sure they are very proud of Sky, something she herself questions. Matthew brings out a package and offers it to Sky, telling her to meet him later on at night, in the gown.

Sky emerges a few hours later dresses in the gown. Matthew comments on how beautiful she looks before escorting her out into a private car. They drive to a large restaurant where they have dinner. They come across a number of dignitaries and Sky asks Matthew why he picked this place. He responds saying that he picked it as it is very romantic. He says that he has a special surprise for Sky. He takes her into and shows her the ballroom floor. Matthew and Sky dance and then Matthew stops and takes Sky outside to an attraction called "Fly Hill". Here, they see the summer breeze and comment on how beautiful the entire scene looks. However, throughout the dancing and show, Sky feels uneasy and gets the feeling that someone is watching them. Matthew turns her around and proposes to her. Sky is overwhelmed but agrees and kisses Matthew. They go off in the car and Matthew reveals that he is going to start a new job as a journalist. Sky congratulates him but Matthew reveals that he is going to need to another Sector on the other side of the planet, ironically enough his hometown. Sky understands and kisses him good night. When she returns home, she is surprised Minim and Lola anticipating her return and having already known about Matthew's proposal. Sky retires upstairs, contemplating her new title as "Mrs".

Chapter 1: Duty

Sky awakes and gets dressed in her uniform. She is greeted by Lola and Minim and the three walk off to HQ. On there way, Sky runs into a thief who attempted to steal a woman's purse. She stops him but lets him off the hook when she discovers that he is trying to raise funds for his sister's operation. She, optionally, gives him some money to partially cover the cost of the operation.

As they arrive into the HQ, Sky is informed that there are a number of problems that need to be addressed. Sky firstly goes off for training and enters the training room. She fights a simulation and emerges just about victorious. She exists the room and is reinformed of the emerging situations. Sky understands and sets off to, optionally, embark on the quests.
