Final Fantasy is an extremely well-known franchise within our sector, and we could be talking about the saga that managed to lay the foundations of its genre, in addition to turning it into a mass phenomenon. This in itself is an achievement, but we have to remember that it has managed to endure over time, so much so that we are now close to receiving the sixteenth installment of this franchise, a game of which we already brought you our impressions. For this reason, we are now at a time when features of the game are being revealed to us non-stop, so that we are sure of what we will find, and in this case We are going to talk about the absence of vehicles for this delivery.
The presence of vehicles, such as boats, is something quite common in this franchise, so much so that its previous installment revolved largely around the Regalia, a rather particular car. In this case, unfortunately for some of the most purist people in the franchise, it has already been confirmed, through an interview with Hiroshi Takai (game director) at Game Informer, where he explains all the details on this topic.
We will have to settle for the Chocobos
This Japanese executive has explained that, because the world of Final Fantasy XVI is based on a central map, in which you decide where you want to fast travel, they saw that “there was no need for any other kind of traversal system”. In this way, it confirms that, unlike the vast majority of the other titles in the franchise, in this game we will not find any means of transportation as such.
As Hiroshi Takai himself has made clear, “currently we only have walking and Chocobos”so yes, you do not have to be alarmed because the Chocobos will make an appearance (as we could see in a trailer), but what we will not have are vehicles in the most current expression of the word, that is, that we will not have cars, boats, aircraft, or the like.
Of course, and as we’ve dropped before, this may be a disappointment to some fans, but for now we think it’s best to wait. until the game is released on June 22 for PS5and judge for ourselves if the inclusion of vehicles was necessary or not.
