Over the last year, Square Enix has announced a slew of new Final Fantasy projects, including expansions for Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Final Fantasy XIV, as well as the next major game in the series, Final Fantasy 16. It looks like the publisher isn’t stopping there either, as rumours are pointing to another new Final Fantasy spin-off game.
Speaking with Fanbyte, sources confirmed, that Square Enix is working with Team Ninja, the studio behind Ninja Gaiden and Nioh, to develop a new Final Fantasy spin-off inspired by games like Dark Souls and Nioh.
This will be a more accessible take on the genre, so don’t expect it to be as gruelling as a Souls game. Apparently, there is already a playable demo planned for this summer, similar to what Team Ninja did in the past with early demos for Nioh. This game is currently expected to be announced at E3.
The final little piece of information we have on this is that it will apparently be a PS5 console exclusive, with a PC release coming a bit later down the line.
KitGuru Says: I loved the Nioh games, so I’m intrigued to see something similar in a Final Fantasy setting. It looks like we have our first surprise of E3 to look forward to.
