It turns out that the next Final Fantasy XVIdoes not rely solely on its game of thrones joking medieval aesthetics. According its MSRB rating in Brazil, FFXVI is considered mature for its sex scenes, drug use, and fantasy hate crimes.
According to a Reddit Translation the rating of the game on the Brazilian site Ministério da Justiça (their Ministry of Justice and Public Security), Final Fantasy XVI presents a cacophony of “extenuating circumstances” such as:
- Sex scenes (which are not fully shown) ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
- “Intentional Deaths” (ㆆ_ㆆ)
- Torture scenes depicting suffering victims (ಠ_ಠ)
- Drug use (¬‿¬)
- Prostitution (＃°Д°)
- Sexual content (which is shown and discussed) (。﹏。)
- And hate crimes （⊙ｏ⊙）
Although this news may surprise you, we already knew that FFXVI would be more mature than its predecessors because its producer, Naoki Yoshida, said so in a interview with play area.
“When you’re trying to tell a story with tough adult themes, those ratings can end up being a bit of a hindrance. And you find yourself changing the things you wanted to do in the game based on that rating,” Yoshida said. play area. “This time, to make sure we could tell the story we wanted in the way we wanted, we decided to pursue a Mature rating in most regions that will release the game.”
G/O Media may receive a commission
Despite the bastard FFXVIit is Mature content rating details, the aforementioned themes and topics aren’t entirely new to the franchise. Last year, Square Enix has updated its MMORPG guidelines, Final Fantasy XIV, allowing its users to engage in consensual and private erotic role-playing games as long as they were “conducted in a private space”. Admittedly, banging the ugly ones or “making love” in FFXIV for romantics, it’s basically doing squats while being uncomfortably close to your special friend. But it’s real to FFXIV players, damn it, and all the power to them.

Final Fantasy VII Remake also had its fair share of mature content, although it was rated T for Teen for its language, suggestive themes, alcohol and tobacco use, and violence. Cloud Strife and his gang of eco-terrorists have been repeatedly tortured, almost sex-trafficked, and witnessed domestic terrorism through Shinra dropping an entire colony on top of another colony. However, it would seem that the only thing that separates FFVIIR of FFXVI is the level of detail that the latter devotes to both his dialogue and the training time of his camera FFXVIsex scenes and hate crimes.
Personally, knowing that FFXVI presents hate crimes moves me to tears. I cry ironically, don’t worry (～￣▽￣)～. Why this ironic laugh in the face of fantastic hate crimes? Well in November, FFXVIthe producer of, Naoki Yoshida, poorly explained to IGN why the fantasy game world of Valisthea didn’t have non-white people saying they thought racial diversity would be a violation of FFXVIthe “narrative limits”.
“Ultimately, we felt that while integrating ethnic diversity into Valisthea was important, over-incorporation into this one corner of a much larger world could end up violating those narrative boundaries that we originally set ourselves,” Yoshida said. IGN.
With that in mind, my mind raced at a mile a minute wondering both what prompts FFXVIHate crimes rated by adults and what fantastic group will be the recipient. Will Hate Crimes™ be directed against people with bunny ears? Cat girls? Or worse, the British-sounding native ? The possibilities may be endless, but they sure will be. a little white and, as the children say, it’s fine.
FFXVI is slated for release on PlayStation 5 and PC next summer.
