Final Fantasy XVI is about to drop and to say that we are hyped would be an understatement. Thanks to the recent FFXVI-dedicated State of Play and the demo, we now know plenty about the next instalment, from its story to its new hybrid model combat system and all the different types of boss battles.

FFXVI is set in Valisthea and revolves around the epic life of Clive Rosfield, Shield of the Grand Duchy of Rosaria and one of the few Eikon wielders in the world. For those unfamiliar, Eikons are mythological beings with tremendous power that can be summoned by what’s called a Dominant.

Clive is part of the ruling family of Rosaria, but when his younger brother, Joshua, reveals he is the Phoenix’s Dominant, Clive is passed over as the Royal lineage’s successor. From what we know about the plot so far, we visit different periods in Clive’s life and learn early on how Joshua loses control of the Phoenix Eikon, resulting in devastating consequences.

Upon launch, Final Fantasy XVI will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive, with no ports coming until sometime later.

Before we get started, every preordered version of the game will land you some special in-game bonuses, such as the Gil Boost Accessory: Cait Sith Charm and the Braveheart Weapon. As far as we know, there’s no other way to attain the items outside of preordering, so make sure you grab ’em while you can.

Gorilla Gaming currently has the cheapest price available, with $79 (down from $114.95). However, you’ll have to pay a minimum $5 delivery fee to have it posted to your address.

Amazon Australia has the next cheapest preorder price for Final Fantasy XVI at $84.99 with free delivery. That’s probably the cheapest you’ll see the upcoming Final Fantasy game drop to, so it’s definitely worth nabbing if you don’t want to head in-store to pick up your copy. From there, JB Hi-Fi and Big W are both following with $89.

Next up is the Deluxe Edition, which comes with a copy of the game (of course), a map of Valisthea and a steelbook case. Unfortunately, everyone appears sold out of the Deluxe Edition at the moment, but we’ll be sure to let you know if any stock becomes available.

JB Hi-Fi was offering an exclusive bonus where you’ll receive the Realms of Valisthea patches when you preorder. However, it was only valid for online deliveries. EB Games also had its very own limited edition steelbook cover featuring Clive Rosfield, but alas, no stock.

Since Final Fantasy XVI is a PS5 exclusive for now, PC gamers will have to bite the bullet and grab a PlayStation 5 console if you’re hoping to play it ahead of next year. Amazon Australia is the only retailer offering a game and console bundle at the moment for $904. You can grab yours here.

You can buy Final Fantasy XVI as a PlayStation 5 exclusive in Australia on June 22, 2023.
