If you're approaching the end of the game, you may be wondering "Is there New Game Plus in Final Fantasy 16?" For some reason, if there’s one thing people want to do after completing a traditionally lengthy RPG, it’s play through it again. If you want a reason to go through it again, check out our Final Fantasy 16 review.
Final Fantasy 16 flips the traditionally turn-based franchise on its head in a way that makes the previous title look slow by comparison. By bringing on some of those who worked on the action-oriented Devil May Cry 5, it even has convenient links to the divisive Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin in a roundabout sort of way. And both games flourished with their post-game appeal.
