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 Vandal.net.
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!

Hello everyone! It’s, of course, your man, Ethan, here at FinalFantasy-XIII.net! Late last month I was privileged enough to attend a somewhat under wraps event being held by Square Enix, on behalf of FinalFantasy-XIII.net, in LA.
As most members of the forums have figured out, this event was of course in regards to the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII-2. Square Enix was kind enough to fly me and a few other staff members from some other Final Fantasy related sites out to LA and attend the event. What’s more is that not only did I get to play an almost complete version of Final Fantasy XIII-2 but I got to meet Producer Yoshinori Kitase and Art Director Isamu Kamikokuryo and have some of my questions regarding the game answered!
It was all a very cool experience and I’d like to take this time to give a shout out to Square Enix and their PR department for making it all possible.
Click through to read my impressions of the game!
Square Enix announced today that North America would be receiving a collector’s edition for Final Fantasy XIII-2. A lot of members of the forums were skeptical if Square Enix would release one, but now their fears can be put to rest.
The collector’s edition will include:
- A 4-disk soundtrack of the game.
- Packaging with artwork done by Yoshitaka Amano.
- An artbook of concept designs that will contain “a variety of never-before-seen illustrations, environments and more.”
The collector’s edition is priced at $79.99 and looks like it’s worth every penny.
