We are aware of how time-consuming role-playing games can be, and Final Fantasy 16‘s duration is no exception. The majority of Final Fantasy gamers are aware of this, but newcomers shouldn’t expect a one-and-done game they can finish in a weekend.
Thankfully, even before the Final Fantasy 16 release date arrives, we already know about how long it will take to finish the game. Find out how much time you will spend in what may be one of the best PS5 RPGs before you pre-order Final Fantasy 16 and embark on your adventure in the world of Valisthea.
Final Fantasy 16 length
Director Hiroshi Takai stated in an interview with Everyeye that Final Fantasy 16 will take 35–40 hours to complete. If you choose to venture off the beaten path and finish everything in the open world, this time might rise to 70 hours.
Many people shouldn’t be surprised by this. Final Fantasy XV, the most recent major Final Fantasy game, has a base story that can be finished in about 28 hours, and a full completionist run can take many players over 90 hours to complete, according to How Long To Beat.
As you can see, Final Fantasy 16’s length is about average for the series. Nevertheless, there are plenty of other things to look forward to in Valisthea, such as learning more about the Final Fantasy 16 characters before the game releases and all the different Final Fantasy 16 Eikons you will encounter.
