Εδώ και λίγα λεπτά η Square Enix έχει γεμίσει την επίσημη ιστοσελίδα του Final Fantasy XVI με “τόνους” νέων πληροφοριών για τον νέο τίτλο της σειράς. Ενδεικτικά αναφέρουμε ότι μάθαμε τα ονόματα και το βιογραφικό των χαρακτήρων του main party. Παρακάτω μπορείτε να δείτε μια εικόνα με τους τρεις χαρακτήρες, καθώς και το βιογραφικό του καθενός.
Clive Rosfield (main protagonist)
The firstborn son of the Archduke of Rosaria. Though all expected him to inherit the Phoenix’s flames and awaken as its Dominant, destiny instead chose his younger brother Joshua to bear this burden. In search of a role of his own, Clive dedicated himself to mastering the blade. His practice pays off when, at just fifteen years of age, he wins the ducal tournament and is dubbed the First Shield of Rosaria—tasked to guard the Phoenix and blessed with the ability to wield a part of his fire. Alas, Clive’s promising career is to end in tragedy at the hands of a mysterious dark Eikon, Ifrit, setting him on a dangerous road to revenge.
The second son of the Archduke of Rosaria and Clive’s younger brother by five years. Joshua awoke as the Dominant of the Phoenix soon after his birth. Despite his noble upbringing, Joshua treats all his father’s subjects with warmth and affection—none more so than Clive, whom he deeply admires. Joshua often laments that it was he, the frail and bookish younger son, who was granted command of the firebird’s flames, and not his stronger, braver brother. While Clive will gladly throw himself into any danger, Joshua quails at the sight of a carrot on his dinner plate. But carrots become the least of his concern when he, too, is swept up into the tragic events that change Clive’s life forever.
Born in the fallen Northern Territories, Jill was taken from her homeland at a tender age to become a ward of Rosaria, securing peace between the two warring nations. The Archduke insisted that she be raised alongside his sons, and now, at twelve years of age, she is as much a part of the Rosfield household as Clive and Joshua. Ever kind, gracious, and unassuming, Jill has become a trusted confidant to the brothers.
Μέσα στην ιστοσελίδα, η Square Enix, έχει επίσης δημιουργήσει ενα κομμάτι αφιερωμένο στον κόσμο του Final Fantasy XVI, της χώρας της Valisthea και των έξι βασιλειών της: Grand Duchy of Rosaria, Holy Empire of Sanbreque, Kingdom of Waloed, Dhalmekian Republic και του Iron Kingdom.
Το Final Fantasy XVI θα αποτελέσει έναν time-exclusive τίτλο για το PlayStation 5, χωρίς να έχει γίνει γνωστή η ημερομηνία ή περίοδος διάθεσης του.
