Square Enix's upcoming RPG Final Fantasy 16 has been given a fairly high PEGI rating for the time being. Accordingly, the role play could be approved from 18 years. However, that is not yet final.
With Final Fantasy 16 We could expect the first role-playing game in the long-lasting series, which will be released from the age of 18. This indicates a preliminary PEGI age rating.
The first Final Fantasy from 18?
The trailer for Final Fantasy 16 was a bit bloody. You are not used to that from the RPG series. It seems like Square Enix is targeting a more adult audience this time around. After all, that worked very well with The Witcher 3, for example.
A PR email from Square Enix indicates that the Pan European Game Information (PEGI) has tentatively given the game an 18+ age rating.
However, that does not have to mean that it stays that way. The release of the role-playing game is still a long way off and a lot may change before the launch. Square Enix may decide they want to bring Final Fantasy 16 to a wider audience in order to sell more copies. In that case, it is conceivable that the team will reduce the violence and blood a little.
Still, it looks like we can't expect a title this time around that is aimed at younger players. There are no cuddly characters or comic-like graphics. Everything is trimmed closer to reality with the typical Asian game look. Incidentally, the look of the role-playing game should be improved by the time it is released. There has been some criticism that Final Fantasy 16 doesn't look like a next-gen game in the first trailer. Producer Naoki Yoshida explained that they really wanted to show real gameplay instead of a render film. And the graphics will be further optimized until the release.
