How Long Does It Take to Beat Final Fantasy 16?

Final Fantasy XVI should take players around 30 to 40 hours to complete when focusing on the main story. Completionists are a different story, though, as doing everything in the game can potentially take 70-80 hours (possibly longer). These include side quests and Notorious Mark bounty hunts — each of which can be time-consuming. These numbers can vary greatly depending on skill level and whether you take your time exploring every nook and cranny of the FFXVI world.
