Final Fantasy 16 is a party-relatedcombat for Yoshida

Despite the fact that recent projections have focused solely on protagonist Clive, Final Fantasy 16 will include party members in combat.

Fans have speculated that other actors will join battles, which the producer of Naoki Yoshida has confirmed to IGN, although they will remain AI-controlled.

"We didn''t want to overwhelm users in our newest trailer, so we focused solely on Clive''s battles. That said, for the majority of his journey, Clive will be accompanied by one or more companions. These companions will participate in battle as well as trade banter with Clive. "That said, the party members will be AI-driven so as to allow players to focus solely on controlling Clive." Yoshida

According to Jim McKind, he has a huge amount of unique abilities in his fully customizable arsenal. We wanted players to master these, and customize them to the point where they can use them more effectively and comfortably.

"But by distributing battle controls out across several party members, it may end up hindering the action, or just complicating things. "That''s why we decided we''d rather have players focus solely on controlling Clive."

Ryota Suzuki, the game''s director of battle, will play an action battle system from Dragon''s Dogma and Captain Marvel, but Yoshida insists that old fans will not be alienated.

"We know that there are a lot of players out there who might not excel at action games," Yoshida told Games Radar. "But those supporters do not need to worry, because we have been developing systems and in-game capabilities that will help those players."

Suzuki has made a significant contribution to the game''s atmosphere, including ensuring speed and stability.

"Our development team had very little experience creating action games, and in those first few days of development we really struggled. "That''s why bringing Suzuki-san really really helped us out," said Yoshida.

"And by bringing in this ultra-talented veteran in Ryota Suzuki, he was able to combine everything we had, then build upon that using his vast amount of experience on previous titles. Whether it be for the entire battle system, or the animation trees - Clive has so many different abilities, and being able to combine all of those abilities seamlessly without any stress, and have it look really, really natural, he helped us do that. His contribution has been fantastic, and without him we would not have

In combat, Clive will be able to use a number of skills from the Eikons he can gain, by example: a Garuda ability allows Clive to lift enemies into the air, which he may follow up with a Titan ground pound.

Eikons will be allowed to face each other as a result of the recent trailer.

"This battle system has allowed us to create a triad of very, very unique battles, and we have a variety of different types of battles," Yoshida told Games Radar.

"Whether it be Clive versus smaller opponents, Clive versus larger bosses, or even Clive becoming an Eikon and having these Eikon versus Eikon battles individually, these battles feel fresh and unique, and not repetitive. A lot of our Eikon versus Eikon battles were created specifically for that instance, and that system was not used anywhere else. So you''ll have something that''s fresh and fresh every time you play."

"For example, if you have Eikon A versus Eikon B, that battle will be similar to a 3D shooter. While another Eikon versus another Eikon will be more like a pro wrestling match, then maybe even a third with one Eikon versus another Eikon will transform an entire area into a battlefield." "We didn''t reuse these systems, and each one of these Eikon versus Eikon battles is unique and will change with each battle."

Final Fantasy 16 will not be open world, according to Yoshida.

The game will be available in summer 2023.
