Final Fantasy 16 is only a year away, but the entire game is now playable from back to back.
Naoki Yoshida, a Square Enix veteran and Final Fantasy 16 producer, said in an interview that the game is pretty much done and that there are only a few tweaks, fixes, and refinement that must be made before it can be unleashed on the whole world.
"Right now, the game is fully playable from start to finish, but we have a lot of voiceover in several languages that must be recorded," he said. "Final Fantasy 16 is a very action-oriented game, so were also doing a lot of playtesting to improve the difficulty levels, as well as finishing the cutscenes, and being involved in a full-scale debugging process.

Here''s hoping that the game will stick to its nice-and-vague ''Summer 2023'' release date, and that there will be no more delays between now and the game finally being in our out-stretched, greedy hands.
It''s not the first time that we''ve heard that the game is fairly ready to fly either; back in April, Yoshida said that Final Fantasy 16 is in "final stages of development."
"For those who have grown up and realized that reality isn''t helpful to you, and who have drifted away from Final Fantasy, we hope that Final Fantasy 16 will be a game that will bring back the pleasure you once had," Yoshida said in the same interview.
When the series begins next year, we anticipate this exciting new addition in its glroy. So far, it has only been officially announced as a PS5 game, although it''s rumoured the title will be released for PC (and possibly other platforms).
