News and Updates

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.

UPDATE: It was a hoax. Someone photoshopped it and claimed he just deleted it. Never trust anyone.

It’s a good thing voice actors can’t keep their mouths shut. Steve Blum, voice actor behind pretty much everything, has posted on his Twitter claiming that he just started voicing King “for a new Final Fantasy”. This could be the first confirmation that Final Fantasy Type-0 will be receiving an international release. He has since deleted the Tweet in an attempt to cover it up but it’s far too late now.

The only thing left is Square Enix to announce their plans which should hopefully happen soon.

Since 2006, we’ve all assumed Agito, and now Type-0, would be released worldwide like any Final Fantasy title. That assumption has been called into question with producer Yoshinori Kitase unable to confirm a release outside of Japan. Gaming Union questioned Kitase about Type-0′s release at E3.

“As you may know very well, with the PSP market, the situation is very different in Japan than outside of Japan. We are having to be very very careful in how we decide what would be the best way to deliver the game to all the gamers. At the moment I can’t give you any confirmed decision, so please be patient for a little bit longer.”

It seems unlikely that the game won’t see an international release, especially with the official site being updated during E3. It just seems they haven’t put much thought into the idea yet. We can remain fairly confident that the game will see the light of day in the West eventually but for now, we can’t be sure.

2006 was a simpler time when exclusives were exclusive and the idea of Final Fantasy XIII appearing on Xbox 360 was ludicrous. In 2008, Square’s promise that Final Fantasy XIII would be exclusive to Playstation 3 was shattered when they revealed that the game would also be appearing on Xbox 360. There were tears for some, suicides for others but there was a last flicker of hope for the nearly extinct “console exclusive” when it was announced that Japan would be exclusively getting the PS3 version. Those days are now over.

Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy XIII will finally be coming to Japanese shelves with a couple of extras the original release didn’t include. The new edition will include the English voices as well as a new “Easy Mode” (It was hard?). It will also be priced at ¥4,980 which is half of the cost of the PS3 version. The game, now known as “Final Fantasy XIII Ultimate Hits International” will be released December 16th, almost exactly a year after the PS3 version.
