In an interview with Famitsu, director Hiroshi Takai and producer Naoki Yoshida revealed the Duration to Final Fantasy 16. By his estimation, it will take players around 35 hours to simply reach the end credits, while those aiming to complete all the side activities and fully upgrade Clive may take up to 70-80 hoursa sign that there will be a large number of secondary activities.
“If you want to master and level up all the skills, get all the accessories, do all the side quests and do all the monster hunts, it will probably take you about 70-80 hours,” Yoshida said.
The producer added that he initially targeted a duration of around 20 hours for the main story alone, as he had the idea that today’s gamers were “too busy with other things”. But with the formation of the game, the total length has increased significantly.
Yoshida also noted that those looking for a challenge to test their skills, once Final Fantasy 16 is finished, will be able to try out the new Game+ mode, called “Final Fantasy”, with more difficult battles and some very different ones. In addition to this, there is also an optional high-scoring combat mode, complete with online leaderboards.
We remind you that Final Fantasy 16 will be available on PS5 starting from June 22, 2023. If you haven’t already, we suggest you read the guide we posted last month.
