On June 27th, Square Enix proudly announced that Final Fantasy XVI’s digital sales and shipments have surpassed over three million worldwide! The game was released on June 22nd and is currently a PlayStation 5 exclusive. Pretty impressive considering it’s only been out about a week, huh? Turns out, people have been really hungry for a brand new mainline Final Fantasy

If you need a refresher about Final Fantasy XVI, here’s an overview from the PlayStation Store page:

An epic dark fantasy world where the fate of the land is decided by the mighty Eikons and the Dominants who wield them.

This is the tale of Clive Rosfield, a warrior granted the title “First Shield of Rosaria” and sworn to protect his younger brother Joshua, the dominant of the Phoenix. Before long, Clive will be caught up in a great tragedy and swear revenge on the Dark Eikon Ifrit, a mysterious entity that brings calamity in its wake.

For even more information, you can always check out Final Fantasy XVI’s official site!

I’m personally waiting for a sale to jump into it, but for those still on the fence, Square Enix points out that Final Fantasy XVI has been reviewed quite well with over 20 perfect scores and general recognition as a “must-play title”. RPGFan’s own reviewer, Zach Wilkerson, seems to agree! While not quite a perfect score, I’d say it’s pretty close.

You can also listen to him and others on staff give their impressions in our latest Random Encounter! If you’re curious about the series as a whole, check out our “So you want to get into Final Fantasy” feature!

There’s also a demo currently available for Final Fantasy XVI on PS5 for those that want to try it before you buy it. Unfortunately, those waiting for the PC version still have to wait a little bit longer. Hopefully a release date for that port is announced very soon!

Word on the street is that Final Fantasy XVI gets kind of gay, which is always a good thing in my book! And hey, Clive is pretty handsome!
