«Currently developing the latest title, Final Fantasy XVI, is at the last stage. Like a single player game Final Fantasy XVI aims to combine story and gameplay,” said Yoshida. “Unlike online games where multiple players participate at the same time, Final Fantasy XVI has an individual focus, which makes the story more exciting. And I think the story got pretty deep. I hope adults who have grown up understand the rules of society and move away from last fantasy thinking that «the real world is not as simple as a video game» may recall the enthusiasm they had then. That’s what we remember when we make this game.»
