Summons have long been a staple of the Final Fantasy series, and everyone wants to know about the Final Fantasy 16 summons, known as Eikons.
These mythological beasts have long been an influence behind the many critically acclaimed games in the Final Fantasy series. Therefore, it is again expected that these monsters will play a crucial role in the game, much to the enjoyment of players.
Final Fantasy 16 does not use the term “summons” in-game. Instead, they are referred to as Eikons. Summoning an Eikon will be different to other games in the Final Fantasy series where typically the player will not control the summons.
However, there will also be consequences to summoning Eikons, which is different to previous games. Summoning an Eikon drains life from the user, reducing their lifespan, so summoning cannot be done as freely as in previous games.
What Eikons Exist in Final Fantasy 16?
The player controls a character named Clive, who will gain many Eikons throughout the story. These powerful beings can turn the tide of battle, but using them comes at the cost of some of Clive’s life. Each Eikon represents an element and features deadly attacks, making them a potent but costly weapon.
The full list of Eikons is still unknown, although, we have already seen some gameplay and trailers that have showcased some of them so far.
We are still yet to see if all of the Eikons will be playable and how much of each one we will see during the game.
