Final Fantasy XVI is getting a lot of attention this week after the release of our impressions of seeing the new Square Enix game live, and it's another PlayStation 5 exclusive that we hope will dispel the bitter taste of Forspoken.
The game will be released on June 22nd, and the date has been set on fire: there is no danger of a delay, according to the author.
Today it has been confirmed that there will be a demo two weeks before the release that would allow us to keep track of our progress in the final game. It has been confirmed in an interview on Famitsu (translated by Genki_JPN).
Although the game will not be released until June 22, it should be kept an eye out a few days before, during the weeks June 5 and 9 that will be when the demo will be released.
Impressions from Final Fantasy XVI
Will Final Fantasy 16 be released two weeks early?
This is great news for Final Fantasy fans who want to try out the game's real-time combat system and get their story started. It's also in keeping with Square Enix's recent development.
Square Enix RPGs such as Octopath Traveler 2, Triangle Strategy, or Bravely Default 2 also had demos weeks before they were released, which allowed you to play the game from the start, the first hours, and afterwards.
On top of that, you'll have completed the entire game two weeks ahead of schedule (and on top of that, during E3 week and Summer Game Fest, which we hope will "catch" the hype).
It's still too early to know exactly how it'll be played on Final Fantasy XVI. However, in the meantime, you can read our exclusive interview with Yoshi-P and check out his graphics modes... because it'll be a full PS5 exclusive (without PC) during a good season.
