Final Fantasy 16

Just like most other Final Fantasy games, it will feature a new cast of characters in a new world with many familiar faces. The game is being produced by Naoki Yoshida, the director and producer of Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn.

During its reveal Square Enix released a trailer titled Awakening, where we got to know that the game will revolve around the bodyguard of a special child, Joshua, who's the son of an Archduke and seems to carry the spirit of a familiar summon or Eikon within his body. It was also shown that after some pretty significant trauma, Joshua will lose control and lead a battle of epic proportions between Phoenix and Ifrit.

The trailer also gave us a look at two summons, Titan and Shiva, along with a number of other familiar creatures.

The game will be set in the world of Valisthea, where there are six major factions: The Grand Duchy of Rosaria, The Holy Empire of San Breque, The Kingdom of Waloed, The Dhalmekian Republic, The Iron Kingdom, and The Crystalline Dominion.

Characters

The studio has already revealed a number of main characters that we will get to see in the game including Clive Rosfield, Joshua Rosfield, and Jill Warrick.
