PlayStation's State of Play event finished up Thursday with an epic Final Fantasy 16 trailer, revealing that the Square Enix game is scheduled to come out on PS5 in summer 2023. It also gave us our first look at the RPG's gameplay, the action-oriented combat system and its summonable Eikons.
The Eikons will be familiar to fans of the series as the elemental beings that have traditionally been available to summon in battle. Each name is chanted in the trailer's music: Phoenix, Titan, Garuda, Ramuh, Shiva, Odin, Bahamut and Ifrit.
Final Fantasy 16 is set in the world of Valisthea, and you play as the sword-wielding Clive Rosfield -- who may be linked to Fire elemental Ifrit.
"Awaken child of fate, awaken Ifrit," says a rather conniving-sounding voice in the trailer's final moments.
