News and Updates

Square Enix announced today that Final Fantasy Type-0 will be receiving an HD Remaster to be released on the PS4 and Xbox One. The real news here though, is that it will be coming to not only Japan, but North America and Europe as well.

 Originally released only in Japan in 2011, Final Fantasy Type-0 was the only game part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis compilation whose release in the West was in question. Between that time and now, many rumors have come and gone about potential releases or cancellations. One thing is for sure, the fans have never let Square Enix forget that this was a game they wanted to play.

“The voice of our Western fans was instrumental in the development of Final Fantasy Type-0, and we’re very excited to release this title soon. The new Playstation 4 system and Xbox One gaming and entertainment platform have really helped to re-envision this dynamic and turbulent world of Orience.”   -Final Fantasy Type-0 Director Hajime Tabata

Square Enix also announced that the fairly new mobile title, Final Fantasy Agito, which takes place in the same world as Final Fantasy Type-0, will be coming to iOS and Android devices in the West as well.

Excited about this surprise announcement? Share your thoughts over on our forums.

For a long time, Western fans have been left in the dark concerning a localization for Type-0, and the news only seems to get grimmer each time we hear about it. However, a recent interview with none other than Hajime Tabata himself might bring a glimmer of optimism. As “moribund” as the the localization might be, S-E has not given up hope. You can read the entire interview here, but here’s the part you’re probably most interested in.

Hajime Tabata: “Due to market reasons, we are taking a clean slate in terms of our plans. We feel strongly about bringing this title to the fans in North America and Europe, so if an opportunity arises that can become a conclusive factor, we are prepared to go into consideration right away.”

That’s less than clear, but it’s also far more than many expected. Though the future for Type-0 is nowhere near certain, at least we know that the project hasn’t flatlined. Additionally, Tabata speaks in the interview of his work with Crisis Core and S-E and about his feelings on Final Fantasy in general. As always, if you have any thoughts, comments or even just exclamations of relief, head on down to our forums.

Nothing important to us (due to the lack of both Type-0 and UMD Passport outside Japan), but for the people it does apply to, Final Fantasy Type-0 is now available through Sony’s UMD Passport program for the Playstation Vita.

Obviously, the UMD Passport will give you the full game through the one file, as available on the Playstation Network. However, if you’ve been playing the UMD version and have the separate save files used on the two disk Physical Version, I can’t guarantee your saves will cross over properly for the Digital Version. So if anyone can test that out, please do let us know.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Final Fantasy Type-0 would be to North America and Europe by an interview Spanish site Vandal had with Kitase. Everyone rejoiced over the fact that the game would finally be coming to our coasts, but then doubt was thrown into the equation when the site removed the paragraph pertaining to the international release.

Thankfully, Type-0′s Ultimania has been released with an interview confirming that Tabata and the team are working hard on the overseas version of the game. It comes with more good news though. Tabata also says he’d like to do a direct sequel to the game (Type-1 as he unsurprisingly calls it) featuring the same characters and world. He even says he’d like to put it on consoles rather than a handheld. It makes sense considering the amount of effort they’ve put into the first, but he said it does depend on player reaction to the first, so buy, buy, buy, if you want more.

Ever since Final Fantasy Type-0 was revealed (as Final Fantasy Agito XIII) a few years ago its potential localization has been in question. In its original form as a cell phone game its chances were nearly 0, which would be quite befitting now. But as it’s now only released for PSP the chances increased dramatically and we’ve all been waiting on baited breath to hear about it travelling to western shores.

It would seem that wait is over however, thanks to a brand new interview with producer Yoshinori Kitase coming out of Spanish gaming site

Thanks to our very own forum member Lymle we have a proper translation of one very important question and answer:

What else can you tell us about the other Fabula Nova Crystallis games? We haven’t heard anything about Type-0 or Versus lately.

[Laughs] Type-0, as you probably know already, was released in Japan last month, so that one’s finished. We’re currently working on the North American and European versions which you will know of very soon. Versus hasn’t been released in Japan yet, but we released a trailer last January. We’re working really hard to finish it. We’ll reveal new stuff within the next few months.

And there you have it folks, if this interview is to be believed, we have official confirmation of Type-0′s western releases!

Square-Enix will be releasing a new Type-0 demo, despite the game being out for nearly a month in Japan. If you didn’t get your Type-0 fix with the Natsubi demo, hopefully this will help ease the burden. You start the demo out with an item that doubles your experience as well as all of the unlockable summer costumes already unlocked. Assuming you purchase the game, you’ll be able to carry over all of your progress into the full game. The demo is due on the 22nd of November.

As with all big Square Enix releases, Final Fantasy Type-0 will be receiving one of the impressive Ultimania Guides. As usual, the overly large book will be packed with Maps, Guides, Side-Missions, Ability and Skills tips, and everything else you could possibly need to know about the game and more.

Type-0′s Ultimania weighs in at a whopping 848 pages. It hits stores on November 30 for ¥2,100.

Final Fantasy Type-0 Sells 472k in First Week
Date: November 2nd, 2011 Author: Kitmitsu

Final Fantasy Type-0 has been out for a week in Japan and the sales for it’s first week have been released by Media Create. It’s managed to shift 472,253 units so far, approximately the same amount as Crisis Core sold on it’s first week. This puts it in the top spot for best selling game in Japan, followed by the new Kirby game and The Idolm@ster 2′s PS3 release.

What does this mean for us? Well the game is certainly a critical and commercial success. If anyone still had any doubts about Type-0 coming overseas, these numbers should hopefully put them to rest. Let’s hope Square thinks the same.

If you’re one of the few remaining people here that is unsure about the recently released Final Fantasy Type-0,  then you’ll be glad to know we’ve put up some impressions of the game. The post looks at parts of the story, different types of gameplay, and the customization available for characters and abilities.

It does contain minor spoilers from the first few hours, but I believe nearly everyone knows these anyway. The impressions are inside the Type-0 Spoiler Forum however, so if you don’t want to be spoiled, be careful how you leave the thread.

Short Final Fantasy Type-0 Impressions

It’s only a few minutes into the 27th, and live streams of Final Fantasy Type-0 have already begun. It’s taken 5 years but Agito is finally here! In Japan anyway. Now comes the real test of whether it was worth the wait. Let’s hope to see strong sales figures so it can be brought overseas.

Naturally, that may take a while. So if you’re like many of us who are impatient, a Japanese player is playing the game on a live stream so we can feel a part of the action. You can’t get spoiled much more than this, so those of you with a strong constitution will have to try your best to resist. Click through the link below to see the stream.

Update: He’s done for the day. Here’s a link to another stream currently going on:
