A post on X from FINAL FANTASY XVI has a special video message from producer Naoki Yoshida confirming plans to bring the RPG sequel to Windows gamers. The almost 4:00 minute clip is an assault on the ears, and even native Japanese speakers will have trouble hearing an un-mic'd Yoshi-P over the blaring music. But English speakers will have to rely on the subtitles anyway, so the mute button is a viable option. The video announces the release of a new free update for the console edition and tease two upcoming paid DLC packs. But as noted above, the big news for PC gamers is the upcoming chance to play the game. Here's word:
As I mentioned earlier, we’ve seen so many opinions and reactions from our community of FINAL FANTASY XVI players. But one thing that came through particularly strongly was how people wanted to see more of Valisthea’s story and spend more time with her inhabitants. To accommodate, the development team has started work on two installments of paid DLC.

Finally, while FINAL FANTASY XVI was released as a PlayStation 5 exclusive, we are aware that many of you have been asking for a PC version. So, allow me to take this opportunity to officially announced that development on a PC version is currently underway. I hope to be able to give you more information on both the upcoming downloadable content and the PC version before the end of the year, so please stay tuned.
