The new installment of Final Fantasy is one of the most anticipated games of 2023 and a barrage of new details tell us that it will not be for children.
Final Fantasy XVI has already passed the classification of the Entertainment Software Rating Board or ESRB. The content ratings body has given the game an M tag, making it suitable for ages 17 and up.
The ESRB website also provides various details about what the game will be like to launch in June 2023.
“This is an action role-playing game in which players take on the role of an enslaved prince (Clive) searching for his missing brother. From a third-person perspective, players explore a fantasy kingdom, complete various quests, and engage in battles against enemy soldiers and fantastic creatures (eg, trolls, orcs),” he explains.
The ESRB also talks about what the combat mechanics will be like
“Players use swords and magical attacks (for example, fireballs or lightning) to kill characters in close combat. During combat sequences, players can perform cinematic attacks or finishing moves by following on-screen instructions. The battles are fast-paced and are accompanied by impact sounds, screams of pain, and huge explosions.”
