Final Fantasy XVI: Here’s What Comes in Each Edition

It’s official: Final Fantasy XVI is coming to PS5 on June 22, 2023. It will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive for at least six months, after which it may come to PC and/or Xbox — but Square Enix has made no announcements so far . FF16 will be available in a few editions, and you can see the pricing and contents of each below. Let’s get to it.

Final Fantasy XVI Standard Edition

At most retailers, the standard edition of Final Fantasy XVI just comes with the game itself, plus the preorder bonus (see below). But if you preorder from Best Buy, you’ll also get an exclusive steelbook case for free along with it.

Final Fantasy XVI Deluxe Edition

The deluxe edition costs $30 more than the standard one, but it comes with some physical items in addition to the game and preorder bonus:

  • Cloth world map of Valisthea
  • Special Clive Rosfield steelbook case

Best Buy is also giving away its exclusive steelbook case (different from the deluxe edition case) with purchase. So you’ll get two steelbook cases if you buy it there.

Final Fantasy XVI Collector’s Edition

The collector’s edition will become available exclusively on the Square Enix Store at 9pm PT Monday, December 12, 2022. It comes with the following items:

  • ifrit statue
  • Set of 8 pins
  • Cloth world map of Valisthea
  • Special Clive Rosfield steelbook case
  • Blood Sword (digital item)

Final Fantasy XVI Digital Deluxe Edition

The digital deluxe edition doesn’t come with any physical items, obviously, but in addition to the preorder bonus, it includes the following digital extras:

  • digital mini art book
  • digital mini soundtrack

Final Fantasy XVI Preorder Bonus

Preorder Final Fantasy 16 from any retailer, and you’ll receive the following digital items at no extra charge:

  • Gil Boost Accessory: Cait Sith Charm
  • Bonus Weapon: Braveheart

If you preorder a digital copy of either edition on the PlayStation Store, you’ll also receive the in-game item Scholar’s Spectacles.

Finally, as mentioned above, if you preorder the standard or deluxe edition at Best Buy, you’ll receive an exclusive steelbook case (see it here).

What Is Final Fantasy XVI?

This installment in the long-running series harkens back to the franchise’s beginnings by putting crystals at the center of the story line. In the world of Valisthea, crystals power the magic. As magic fades from the world, the kingdoms only intensify their battle for magical power. This leads the game’s protagonist Clive Rosfield to a revelation that he must destroy the crystals altogether. You can read more about it in our exclusive Final Fantasy XVI interview with the game’s director.
