Final Fantasy XVI: Cid “Is A Very Interesting Character, With His Complex Life And Backstory”
If you’ve played Final Fantasy XVI, you know that its world, lore, characters, and story could be explored in more depth in a hypothetical expansion. Square Enix initially did not contemplate this possibility, but just yesterday the Japanese company began to assess the implementation of a future DLC in Final Fantasy XVI. Today there are more details about what the video game producer wants.
The GamesRadar medium echoes the statements of Naoki Yoshida, producer of Final Fantasy XVI, where he points out that he would like to make a DLC for Cid. He is the best character in the game for many reasons, he is brimming with ambition, charisma, and a sense of humour and his tone of voice is very serious. Yoshida has been asked who he would like another playable character to be, and the producer has noted the following.
“He’s a very interesting character, with his complex life and backstory,” he says of Cid. “This is not a business decision, but rather a personal and creative decision to make it playable in a future content update,” he says. As of today, there is no firm decision, but Square Enix is already considering it and they could give the project a green light in the coming weeks or months.
The last patch of Final Fantasy XVI
The latest update for Final Fantasy XVI has done away with motion blur and dizziness. Now we can adjust the motion blur level from the game menu. There have also been some visual improvements and some performance fixes. Naoki Yoshida himself confirmed yesterday that they would continue working on the video game according to the comments provided by the community.
A Classic Story?
The story of Final Final Fantasy XVI is one of betrayal, redemption, friendship, revenge, and stark contrasts. His inspiration is set in how Game of Thrones often works, because, in addition to all this family business, we have that at any time and without prior notice, an important character can lose his life, leaving you in complete shock.
In turn, how the story unfolds on a macro scale makes you stay on the edge of your seat all the time, because, at practically all times, something important is happening. To mention that indeed, this is one of the Final Fantasy more focused on the narrative and history part, being heavily loaded with spectacular cinematics with very violent and dark tones, in addition to the fact that the vast majority of conversations have voice acting, which we can tell you, is extremely well done.
It’s hard to say, but we think that after the little less than 40 hours, it took me to complete the game’s main quest. We can recommend to you that Final Fantasy 16 tells the strongest, most intense, and most important story in the entire history of the saga. How he develops his world and complex lore is only surpassed by how his characters are constantly evolving, making you feel interested in them and what is happening to them at all times. For all of the above, we also think that without a doubt, this is the best story that is going to be told in a video game, at least in 2023.
