While Final Fantasy XVI is now available, Square Enix isn't done promoting the game, and today they released two new trailers. 

The first trailer comes from the western arm of the company and features soccer player Alphonso Davies, basketball player Angel Reese, Formula 1 driver Pierre Gasly, American football player George Kittle, WWE Superstar Xavier Woods, artistic gymnast Suni Lee, soccer player Gabriel Martinelli, and soccer player Alessia Russo as they play the game and welcome the players to it. 

You can watch it below.

The second trailer comes from Japan and it's a little more traditional, providing an introduction to the cast of characters you'll meet in the game. 

Final Fantasy XVI is currently available exclusively for PS5 and you can read our enthusiastic review in which our Andrew Stretch defined the game as "everything he could have hoped for and more" and "a deep story and fully fleshed out world that you'll want to be protecting."

PC version has also been confirmed by Yoshida-san himself, but Square Enix will need time to optimize the game for the platform, so we don't yet know when it'll launch. You can also read our interview with Yoshida-san and art director Hiroshi Minagawa.

Recently, we learned that PlatinumGames and the Kingdom Hearts team at Square Enix helped out with development. We also saw the release of a lovely trailer focused on the theme song by Kenshi Yonezu.
