Last July, Final Fantasy 16 producer Naoki Yoshida confirmed that the title would have a Story Focus Mode and Wearable Assists to help less combat-savvy players. In a new interview with 4Gamer, director Hiroshi Takai (translation via DeepL) has confirmed that there will be New Game Plus where players can carry over all their equipment and abilities into a new playthrough.

Your level also carries over, which you’re going to need since enemies are stronger as well. In addition to this, a higher level difficulty mode is also present. More details on this have yet to be revealed, but it should satisfy those who want a challenge.

Final Fantasy 16 is out in Summer 2023 for PS5. According to Takai, development is about 95 percent complete, and a release date should be announced by the end of 2022.
