In an interview with Famitsu magazine (translated by @aitaikimochi ), director Hiroshi Takai and producer Naoki Yoshida said that they thought about the playtime for Final Fantasy XVI’s story mode to take into account that players have lives outside of video games, so they wrote it in a way that allows players to do just the bare minimum if they’re too busy to do any side quests. The team initially aimed for a runtime of 20 hours, but the extra content they put in stretched that time to 35 hours.
“When the development of the game was just starting, I had the idea in mind that players nowadays are too busy with other things, so I wanted them to be able to at least try to complete the story,” said Yoshida. “I thought making the game something you could complete in about 20 hours would make sense, but more and more was added.”
“[Final Fantasy XVI] is a story-driven game that will take you on a rollercoaster ride,” said Takai. “You’ll see Clive’s entire way of life, and the game will probably take about 35 hours to finish. If we include the optional content, it will be twice that amount.”
When he says “twice that amount”, Takai means that the total playtime is between 70 and 80 hours, depending on how much players do, and there’s a lot to do. To reach the maximum time mentioned by Takai and Yoshida, players will have to complete all side quests, max skills, acquire all accessories and complete all monster hunts.
Lastly, there will also be a New Game+ mode called Final Fantasy Mode, which will allow players to keep their previous save game data and use it in a new one. The difficulty level of this mode is similar to that of Proud Mode in Kingdom Hearts, that is, it will take longer to beat the game this way. And for players who want even more, there’s a leaderboard that lets you compete with other players around the world.
Final Fantasy XVI arrives on June 22 for PS5.
