What to expect for Final Fantasy at E3 2021
Of the three games, two have been confirmed to come out, while information regarding one of them is barely known.
1) Final Fantasy XVI
The latest installment in the Final Fantasy franchise from Square Enix is set to be Final Fantasy XVI. Even though the developers pulled the curtain recently, it is said that the game is quite ready to launch as a possible E3 2021 feature is set to happen.
Although the game was originally said to be a PS5 exclusive, a rumored trailer leak suggests otherwise. Among the many elements shown in the video, a section revealed that the game is also set to be released on PC as well, making it a PS5 timed exclusive.
Despite Sony deleting the video from the internet and Australia’s PS5 webstore telling IGN that it is a PS5 exclusive, fans of the franchise remain hopeful for a PC release. That all being said, it is almost certain at this point that FInal Fantasy XVI is confirmed to get a showcase at E3 2021.
2) Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is one of the most anticipated games coming this year. Even though the game was released last year in April for the PS4, Square Enix chose to release the game for the next-gen PS5.
On the final trailer on May 7th, some gameplay features and enemies were showcased by PlayStation, along with a possible release date of June 10th. The game will be PS5 exclusive with no further information about it being released on any other platform. With the date of release being so close to the gaming expo, fans are sure to get a feature at E3 2021.
Final Fantasy Origin
Developer of Nioh and Ninja Gaiden, Team Ninja is rumored to be developing a new Final Fantasy spin-off game for Square Enix. According to the rumors, the game is titled Final Fantasy Origin and is expected to receive a full showcase at E3 2021.
The rumors also suggest that the game is more in harmony with FromSoftware’s Dark Souls series and the mechanics of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. This suggests that even if it is a PS5 timed exclusive, there are chances of a future PC port.
