During this year's PAX West trade show in Seattle, Square Enix delivered some good news for everyone waiting for the release of Final Fantasy XVI on personal computers. As reported by Gematsu, in a video released during the event the studio announced that it is actively working on a version of the game designed for PC.
In addition, the developer of FF16 also has two paid DLCs in the pipeline. We are expected to receive more information about the expansions and the PC port before the end of this year..
However, this is not the end of pleasant news for Final Fantasy fans, because since yesterday owners of the game can download an update. It includes alternative costumes for several characters, as well as the option to change the "skins" of weapons while keeping their current stats. In addition, players will get a brand-new Onion Sword at their disposal.
Yoshida added that based on the community's comments, the developers have prepared several minor improvements for the game. One of them is the ability to try out different controller layouts.

Recall that, according to recent reports Square Enix was supposedly not satisfied with the moderate popularity of the new installment. At the time, the Bloomberg agency and IGN editors reported that the game's sales at the end of the second week after release were said to have dropped by as much as 90 percent in Japan.
Company representatives immediately responded, saying they were satisfied with the game's sales, which reached 3.5 million units in the first week. Nevertheless, given that the previous installment of the series enjoyed higher sales, one might suspect that the developers were not very eager to celebrate.
