Final Fantasy XVI – latest trailer already complete and coming soon, producer Naoki Yoshida saysLatest numbered Final Fantasy has "already come together considerably."
The latest trailer for Final Fantasy XVI is already complete and coming soon, producer Naoki Yoshida said during the “NieR Re[in]carnation x Final Fantasy XIV Collaboration Special” live stream today.
After talking about how Square Enix‘s American marketing team was upset with Yoshida for saying development on Final Fantasy XVI is “in the final stretch” during a recent interview with Uniqlo’s UT magazine, the following conversation between Yoshida and NieR series producer Yosuke Saito ensued:
Yoshida: “We said the next time we’d release information is in the spring… And I’m being told, ‘so when exactly is spring to you?'”
Saito: “After all, the NieR Re[in]carnation collaboration with Final Fantasy XIV is supposed to be in the early summer, and that’s already next week. Right now we’re in between spring and early summer.”
Yoshida: “No no… The trailer is already complete. But it was delayed for various reasons. I think it’ll come out soon.”
Saito: “I’ve seen some other footage as well. I was really impressed by what you guys made.”
Yoshida: “You were practically chuckling by how absurdly well-made it was. That being said, the development team has put in tremendous effort. From this point, we’re fervently playing it through, polishing, debugging, and thoroughly optimizing, so I think we’re going to take a little longer there. It’s already come together considerably. I feel like we should spend a little more time in that area.”
Final Fantasy XVI is in development for PlayStation 5.
