dark, violent and explicit, according to the Brazilian rating

New information arrives on Final Fantasy 16. Not directly from Square Enix. At the moment, news is expected from the company dedicated to the development of the new chapter in the series during The Game Awards on 8 December. But, while the world of fans remains in suspense to see more about the game coming this summer, some anticipation comes from the Brazilian Ministry of Justice.

According to the information learned, in fact, it seems that in the Carioca nation, Final Fantasy 16 will be released with an age limit of +16 (coincide I believe? I don’t Denzel, cit). This type of classification, there in the homeland of CADE and Soccer, is applied in those games where it is also possible to trace serious issues. Violence, acts of hatred (racial or gender), and red light scenes (even if not shown in a completely explicit way). Other possible related themes: prostitution and drug use. All elements mentioned in the document attached at the bottom of the page in the links dedicated to the sources.

Information – those on the contents – that are reflected in the mood of the game already explained by Square Enix itself. In fact, on several occasions, the main personalities behind the project have told of a very dark world. The trailers echoed these statements. Meanwhile, the developers tell of a game that sinks part of its inspirations also in Game of Thrones. The HBO TV series, based on the cycle of novels by George RR Martin certainly does not shine for its sweetened contents and it is therefore plausible that a more direct visual language has also filtered into the game world.


Final Fantasy 16 is expected on PlayStation 5 during the summer of 2023. According to some recent commercials, it will be an exclusive 6-month timeframe on Sony consoles. After that, the way will open for publication on other platforms as well (PC, presumably, and Xbox Series X and Series S)
