Final Fantasy 16 will showcase the power of the PlayStation 5

Yoshi-P boldly claimed that the upcoming mainline Final Fantasy installment will be a technical marvel that will push the PS5 to its limits.

Yoshi-P is looking to put another legendary title on his resume with Final Fantasy 16.

Final Fantasy 16 is an upcoming PlayStation 5 exclusive that has so far impressed fans with its graphics. But, companies have burned gamers so much over the past decade with trailers that set unfair expectations for what the game could look like when it finally comes out. As a result, some are doubting that FF16 will look as good when it comes out next summer. If you ask the game's producer, Naoki Yoshida, though, he's more than happy to make fans expect.

According to translated comments made by the man who's affectionally referred to by his fans as "Yoshi-P" at a recent Final Fantasy 14 live stream, FF16 is going to "become a game that is like, 'Look at the power of the PS5!'"

In the same live stream, Yoshi-P clarified that the "Revenge" trailer, for FF16, which launched at The Game Awards, all contained real-time footage.

The PlayStation 5 has no shortage of games that have tried to push it to its limits. We won't need to look further than the two GOTY candidates, God of War: Ragnarok and Horizon: Forbidden West, as examples of games that delivered on all expectations like graphics. Last year, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart showcased the power of the proprietary SSD of the PS5 as it let players switch seamlessly between worlds with zero loading times.

Final Fantasy 16 could end up being one of the best-looking games of its generation so far.

As a PS5-exclusive title, Final Fantasy 16 has the benefit of being developed solely for more powerful hardware. Yoshi-P is a lot of things, including the guy that put Final Fantasy 14 on the map, but he's not known for setting false expectations.

Judging from his high praise for FF16, Square Enix will go all out to guarantee it's a better game than expected when it hits the store shelves on June 22.

Everything we've seen about Final Fantasy 16 suggests that it's going to be one of the best games in the franchise.

Speaking of Final Fantasy 16, Microsoft recently revealed that Sony has blocked the game from ever coming to Xbox platforms. This implies that FF16 is only coming to the PC after six months - not the Xbox Series S/X or the Game Pass.
