Final Fantasy XVI: Complete Walkthrough & Game Guide

Final Fantasy XVI – Complete Walkthrough

Welcome to our Final Fantasy 16 guide! Throughout the next few weeks we’ll be diving into every facet of the new Final Fantasy and helping you find the best ways to play the game and unlock everything there is to see. Unlike other Final Fantasy titles, 16 is far more action-orientated and as a result there’s a lot more emphasis on the combat.

We’ve played this one extensively and have everything you need to know about the game. From here, you’ll find links across to each of the individual missions for walkthroughs, along with links to FAQ guides and more.

Do bookmark this page though as we’ll be adding more and more articles over the coming weeks, including our ongoing coverage of the main missions, side quests and more!

Main Quests

Final Fantasy 16 is very story heavy game and most of what you’ll be seeing here is related to the main narrative. The game has a total of 68 Main Quests and 76 Side Quests, not to mention Notorious Marks (Monster Hunts). Below, our table has individual walkthroughs for each mission. We’ve also highlighted the Point of No Return just before Mission 25 too, but the game does also prompt you to this beforehand.
