Final Fantasy 16 was finally revealed to the world during the PlayStation 5 showcase and some were very quick to criticise the graphics of the game. As you can imagine, the developers pointed out that the graphics weren’t final. Kinda like every first trailer of any game in development.
Naoki ‘Yoshi-P’ Yoshida confirmed that graphics are still being worked on and will be fine-tuned before release.
“I saw some comments saying that if we [released a CGI trailer], they wouldn’t see the game until 2035. So we decided to release a proper trailer.Yoshi-P to Yoko Taro.
You can follow the panel here, called Stroll with Yoshi-P, over here thanks to subtitles by Audrey.
Besides being told that more information is on the way in 2021, there is little else to go on. Hopefully, Square Enix has learnt to be better on the timing of these trailers, after releasing trailers of several other games many, many years ahead of release. Maybe this title is closer to finished than most of their games are when revealed. Of course, that could be wishful thinking after living through five or more years from reveal to the actual release of several games.
