I guess these games are a big deal? Because over 3 million players bought the 16th entry of Final Fantasy around the world. A standalone tale that takes place in the land of Valisthea, a fragile peace is smashed when protagonist Clive Rosfield’s father and brother are killed by a mysterious Eikon known as Efrit. His life crumbling before his eyes, Clive eventually rises up and sets forth on a quest for revenge.
As a timed PlayStation exclusive, the fact that it reached this milestone in such a short span of time is quite impressive and Square Enix isn’t letting go of the gas with this one! The publisher is offering a demo for the curious which features the prologue of the game and a taste of the action you’ll experience later on in the game. Your save will carry over to the full title, if you choose to continue your journey in Vasistha.
