Final Fantasy 16 will offer an action-oriented combat system and will not revive the turn-based past of the franchise. We’ve known that for a long time, but producer Naoki Yoshida – who is mainly responsible for the success of Final Fantasy 14 – revealed what was behind this decision in an interview.
That’s why the Final Fantasy 16 team decided to take an action approach
For several generations of consoles, all character actions can now be performed in real time […]without having to scroll through a command system. It’s now common for gamers younger than me to love such games. As a result, having to select an input like Attack to perform an action during combat doesn’t seem to make sense.
One system all of them in one: But not only young people should be addressed with the action system. Even those who “don’t normally play RPGs” can have fun with Final Fantasy 16, according to Yoshida. However, he does not want to make a judgment about which of the two variants is the better one.

Here’s what else we know about the combat system: In previous interviews, Yoshida announced details about the fights in Final Fantasy 16. For example, there will be tons of skills that your characters can use in battle.
In addition, clashes between the powerful Espers will take place. The summoning of the godlike beings will play an even bigger role in the next part of the series than before. And the giants can now compete in kaiju style.
