It turns out that the story and adventures of Final Fantasy 16 take place in a land called Valisthea.
The world is tied to 6 different Mother Crystals that have existed for generations. During this time, six powerful nations have risen around the Mother Crystal, and now live in relative peace in their respective places. As always in Final Fantasy, the blessings bestowed by the Mother Crystal allowed these powers to flourish and people to live comfortably.
Of course, we also learn that the crystals were responsible for “the countless wars” that eventually formed the six nations currently in the game: the Grand Duchy of Rosalia, the Holy Empire of Sambrek, the Kingdom of Warod, and the Republic of Dalmatia. , Iron Kingdom, and Crystalline Dominion.
Each place sees the world differently and, obviously, this leads to political disagreements between nations. However, we do know that the emergence of something called “Blight” spreading across the land has made these various forces desperate. In the midst of this tumultuous time.
In a radio interview ( Kotaku) Producer Naoki Yoshida said that while Final Fantasy 16 will be “action-oriented”, it will be “a Final Fantasy that features both story and action.” We want it, so we have a mode for those who want to focus on the story, ”and steps are being taken to accommodate players who prefer story over action.

Final Fantasy 16 characters and gameplay
Final Fantasy 16 is an action RPG. That said, you shouldn’t expect turn-based combat like the older entries. Instead, it resembles Final Fantasy 15. We’re also aware that Final Fantasy 16 isn’t open world, but Naoki Yoshida confirms that he will “find inspiration” from them.
Clive Rothfield is the protagonist, and a series of AI-controlled companions join the battle. The teaser site describes him as the eldest son of the Archduke of Rosalia and responsible for protecting his younger brother Joshua, the Lord of the Phoenix.
Thanks to Joshua’s connection to Akon Phoenix, Clive has been blessed by Phoenix, allowing him to use Akon’s fire and power to make himself stronger. As the story unfolds, Clive is said to have “been involved in a great tragedy”.
Joshua Rosfield is Clive’s younger brother and ruler of Phoenix — the Eikon of Fire. This means that Joshua has the Icon Phoenix within him, giving him special abilities and powers. It is reported. This tells us a little bit about the world, how we see Dominant and Akon.
Finally, Jill Warrick is the first girl we meet in the first trailer. She is friends with Clive and Joshua because at a young age she was removed from her homeland in the Northern Territories, a country that swore allegiance to the Grand Duchy of Rosaria, to broker peace between the two factions.
If you’ve played Final Fantasy 14, A Realm Reborn, you’ll recognize the term Eikon, called Primals. Dominants are treated differently depending on the realm: Some nations worship them as royalty, while others send them to the front lines as weapons of war.”

Permanent Economic Advisor Hugo Kupka said, “Once an obscure infantryman in the Republican army, his awakening as ruler of the Akon Titan propelled him to the forefront of Dalmec politics”. At the throne, he skims the heads of his subordinates and dictates their will. Titan is the big guy in the trailer and at height he looks like he’s 9 feet tall.
Garuda, on the other hand, is under the control of Benedicta Herman, one of the other icons. She is on a mission to find her second fire symbol and you will be on this quest. Play as Clive Rothfield. Harman apparently “transformed her talent for swordsmanship and cunning tactics into commanding elite Warlord agents”.

“We want the world, especially the younger generation, to play games. Also, mainstream games these days are intuitive games where a character shoots a gun or swings a sword at the push of a button. It’s a traditional turn-based RPG style, and command-fighting is no longer familiar to them. Combat in Final Fantasy 16 is very action-based…”
Yoshida continued, acknowledging that the game did not meet all the demands, saying, “Of course, I don’t think we can meet all the demands, so the first thing I said to everyone on the team was that we You have to make something that you think is fun and make sure it reaches people who like it.”
