Final Fantasy XVI Reveals Three New Clean Illustrations Highlighting the Dominants

The official Final Fantasy XVI Twitter account has shared three new clean illustrations of the game’s cast. The first piece of artwork highlights the Dominant of Shiva, Jill Warrick, likely before she reunites with Clive in the game’s opening hours.

The second illustration showcases Jill and Cid’s adopted daughter, Midadol Telamon, at the foot of a still-active crystal. Lastly, a clean version of the #1803 July 6, 2023, Famitsu issue cover art highlighting the Dominants has been shared.

Final Fantasy XVI is a more action-heavy entry than its predecessors, with a Devil May Cry V designer even taking the helm. Throughout the title, players will control the protagonist, Clive, as he confronts various Dominants, humans who have been cursed with the power to become Eikons.

Clive is the “First Shield of Rosaria,” sworn to protect his younger brother Joshua, who’s the Dominant of Phoenix. However, following a certain tragedy, Clive swears revenge on the Dark Eikon Ifrit.

The producer, Naoki Yoshida, describes this game as akin to his experience with the first Final Fantasy, as “playing the lead in an epic motion picture.” The reasoning for this title’s action-oriented approach and more classical fantasy setting was to “appeal to as wide a range of gamers as possible.”
