Final Fantasy XVI "Salvation" launch trailer previewed at PlayStation Showcase

Square Enix highlighted a new trailer during Sony’s PlayStation Showcase this afternoon, previewing nearly three minutes of footage ahead of Final Fantasy XVI‘s launch next month. The trailer, titled “Salvation”, is fully keyed in on the game’s story as well as its characters, locations and the large focus on Eikons and their role in the action battle system. It’s a meaty look, and while it does have a few things we’ve seen already, there’s plenty we haven’t.

In the trailer we see the harsh circumstances faced by the Bearers, those born with the ability to cast magicks at will, and we see the truth that lies behind the Mothercrystals, long supposed to have bestowed blessings upon humanity. The new trailer also offers a glimpse of the first steps of Clive Rosfield, the protagonist of the game, as he and his allies fight to take back control of their fate.

Catch the full trailer in English below. We’ve also added some new screenshots.


Final Fantasy XVI will launch for PlayStation 5 on June 22.
