    Default New Final Fantasy XVI trailer revealed during June State of Play

    This one is very heavy on showcasing the summons. Looks like they fight each other in combat.

    It seems like characters can transform into them or at least use their powers.

    Imagine training up your whole life because you know you have the power to turn yourself into a summon. Preparing yourself, working for years to master a skill, then in battle your finally ready to transform yourself for the first time and you turn into the chocobo summon

    The aesthetic, story, vibes, they all look smurfing rad as hell. I'm getting kinda Attack on Titan vibes with the eikons. The voice acting and music is great as well.

    Not too sure what to make of the gameplay footage in battles though. Far too early to make a call, of course, but doesn't look entirely like my cup of tea.

    It's been known since the first trailer that characters transform in to summons. We seen Joshua transforming in to Phoenix once he went in to a rage after seeing whatever character that was get slaughtered in front of him. The ones that can transform are called the "Dominants" who summon forth an "Eikon".

    As for this trailer, I really enjoyed it. Personally I think that the combat looks great, and I'm glad to see that the Stagger system that was introduced in XIII remains in place. This encourages the player to switch up the playstyle rather than just spamming attack. Turn based Final Fantasy is definitely a thing of the past now - the series has definitely evolved. Some might not like that, but it is what it is, and if XV and FFVIIR are anything to go by I'm sure the game will have some type of slow down/tactical mode as an option for players not so confidant with the fast paced mechanics.

    I'm intrigued by the 1vs1 summon fights. We pretty much can tell from this trailer that Clive is Ifrit. If the battles shown are pulled from the game then we can see that Clive (Ifrit) has a battle with Joshua (Phoenix). Clive also seems to be up against BTM (Big Tall Man/Titan), and UBL (Unknown Blone Lady/Garuda). I'm assuming you fight these characters head on as humans first but then there's some kind of gauge that fills before the characters transform in to their Eikons? I wonder whether these scenes will be interactive in anyway, with Quick Time Events or ways to increase attack power? Who knows! But I'm intrigued and can't wait to find out more about the game!

    The story is intriguing me. The gameplay looks a bit better than what I've seen with XV and VIIR but we'll have to see when we get our hands on it whether it's actually good or not.

    Course I don't have a PS5, nor do I have enough reason to pick one up yet, so it may be a hot minute before I ever get to play this entry.

    I could not care less for the battle system, but if it has some nice exploration and quests, Iím sold on the gameplay anyway. Everything else looks great and I canít wait

    looks great visually, basic plot ideas sound good. the gameplay looks fine so far but i'll wait until i see more. the VA still bother me - i just don't care for this kind of received pronunciation crap and the usual associated dialogue. mothersmurfers saying ponce trout like "henceforth". smurf off. say chocobo instead.

    Nothing blew me away but I felt the same way with FFXV and that ended up being fun. The summon battles look cool!

    I am here for everything about it apart from the UI. I feel like the UI elements could be designed to much better compliment the visual direction of the game.

    Right now it just looks like medieval fantasy but with an FFXIII/Dissidia style UI plastered on top - it's so jarring.

    Coming from the XIV team I'm sure the UI will be customisable, with the option to turn off floating numbers etc.
