[UPDATE]Final Fantasy XVI Will Be “Action-Oriented”, Producer Says
[Update] Gematsu provided an extended summary of what the Final Fantasy XVI producer Naoki Yoshida stated regarding the game being action-oriented. You can find this summary here.
[Original Story] Final Fantasy XVI is going to be an action-oriented game, according to producer Naoki Yoshida.
Speaking in a new interview, as reported by active time boop, the game's producer confirmed that the next entry in the series by Square Enix is going to be action-oriented. The team, however, is putting effort into supporting players who are not very skilled at action games, so it is likely that the game will feature some sort of easy mode for those who just want to enjoy the story. The only Final Fantasy XVI trailer that has been released so far hinted at a much more action-oriented experience, so Naoki Yoshida's statement is particularly surprising.
Yoshida briefly discussed FF16 on a radio broadcast he was invited to primarily to discuss FF14.
He said that FF16 is "action-oriented" and that they're putting effort into supporting players who are less-skilled at action games -- also that they're working hard on the story. https://t.co/G3C2jmm3Rr

If something gets spoken about, someone will pick it up on social and it starts to spread around and people will form expectations.
