The trailer, named “AMBITION”, gives players a more in-depth look at FINAL FANTASY XVI’s backstory, including the realm of Valisthea and its rich cast of characters they will encounter in the game, including Dominants – single men and women who are blessed with the ability to call upon a dread power, which is unlike anything ever seen in the series.

The development team also posted new comments as they set their sights on delivering an unforgettable experience to gamers across the globe. “I'm happy to announce that our newest trailer—Ambition—is now live,” commented Naoki Yoshida, Producer, FINAL FANTASY XVI. “Rather than focusing on action as we did in our last reveal, this time we wanted to give the world a more in-depth look at FINAL FANTASY XVI's lore and its rich cast of characters—with the Dominants front and centre.”
“As the game edges closer to completion, the team has turned its full attention to debugging and final adjustments,” said Hiroshi Takai, Director, FINAL FANTASY XVI. “Now that things are starting to come together, the game is sizing up to be something truly special.”
