Yoshida told viewers that a new trailer for the game was finished and would be released in the near future.

Square Enix had planned to release the trailer already but it delayed doing due to various factors, he said.
Yoshida also said the development team has spent a fairly long time polishing and debugging the game, and that it is almost complete.
This echoed a comment Yoshida gave in a recently published interview, in which he said development of the game was in “its final stages”.
Providing an update on the title last December, Yoshida said Final Fantasy XVI’s development had fallen almost half a year behind schedule.
With staff forced to work from home, he said the Covid-19 pandemic had led to unexpected production issues and that the game’s “next big reveal” wouldn’t occur until spring 2022.
Uniqlo will be selling a line of Final Fantasy t-shirts to celebrate the series’ 35th anniversary. There will be 16 shirts, one for each game in the series, which will go on sale in US stores on May 16.
