How long does Final Fantasy 16 take to beat?

Yoshi-P, a director and designer of Square Enix game company, recently gave some information to Famitsu about how much time gamers will spend to beat Final Fantasy. According to him, the main story part of the Final Fantasy 16 game will take you around 35-40 hours for an average gamer.

This time can vary if you try to discover all the hidden features and side quests of the game. Naoki Yoshida added that if you like to watch cutscenes to feel the game’s atmosphere, or want to pass the game to 100% completion, you may spend more than 75-80 hours in the game. The game producer wanted to make a 20 hours main story, but, luckily, changed his mind.
