PlayStation and Square Enix have revealed some new products coming to coincide with the launch of the massive upcoming PS5-exclusive, Final Fantasy XVI.
Firstly for anyone jumping into the world of PS5 specifically for the new sequel, there’s going to be a PS5 console bundle that comes with a download code for the game, much like the ones we’ve seen for games like God of War Ragnarok and Horizon Forbidden West.
Perhaps more exciting though, is a limited edition Final Fantasy XVI DualSense controller and a Final Fantasy XVI PS5 Cover. These both feature striking designs with the cover based on the game’s title logo and the DualSense controller featuring iconography and motifs from the game.
Check them out below:
The Final Fantasy XVI console bundle will be available in Australia on the game’s launch date of June 22nd with pre-orders reportedly opening soon. So far, sadly the controller and cover have only been announced for Japan but we’ll absolutely be keeping an eye out for local information on any of those. Pricing in Japan is as follows:
PS5 Console Final Fantasy XVI Bundle – 67,980 yen (approx $770 AUD)

We got the chance to go hands-on with a few hours of Final Fantasy XVI earlier in the year and said, “Regardless of the session having a more narrowed focus on combat and Eikonic battles, the two-and-a-bit hours I spent immersing myself in Final Fantasy XVI has painted a reassuringly positive picture. It’s been in good enough hands this whole time that I’ve always felt rather confident in the game to really bring the single-player Final Fantasy experience back into good stead, but knowing what I now know and playing what I played I’m almost certain that this will be the Final Fantasy to truly wow the world once again.”
