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.
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.
