Square Enix today revealed a whole bunch of details about the world and characters of Final Fantasy XVI. In case you missed it, the latest and greatest Final Fantasy video game was announced earlier this year for the PlayStation 5, and while we might not yet know exactly when it's going to release, we know a bit more today about its setting than we did before. And to top it all off, Square Enix has also released a stunning new key visual for the upcoming title.
"Final Fantasy XVI brings players into a world where Eikons are powerful and deadly creatures that reside within Dominants—a single man or woman who is blessed with the ability to call upon their dreaded power," Square Enix says of the game. "The story follows Clive Rosfield, a young man dedicated to mastering the blade, who is dubbed the First Shield of Rosaria and tasked to guard his younger brother Joshua—the Dominant of the Phoenix. Unexpected events set Clive on a dark and dangerous road to revenge."
