Adding to the billow of screenshots and information on Type-0 are sixteen new screenshots courtesy of Famitsu. The screenshots give us a preview of the Mission system in Type-0 alongside first glances of Cid Oldstein (leader of Milites), Khalia Chival VI (174th Principal of Suzaku’s Peristylium) and Qator Bashtar (one of Milites’ Military Generals). Rem and Machina are included as well as the injured soldier that appeared in the Premiere Trailer.
After being nothing more than a teaser for the past several months, the full version of Type-0′s site has been launched giving us a preview of the game’s Battle System and Soundtrack. The ‘Characters’ section gives us another look at Ace, Queen, Nine, and Kurasame (all of which have been revealed in the past). More importantly, the previous section and ‘Prologue’ gives us a batch of screenshots showing us the detailed characters and areas of the game.
In the past week, coverage on Type-0 regarding both its characters and battle system had arose with scans. Today, Famitsu has released direct-feed screenshots showcasing Type-0′s class-specific characters along with their abilities and personalities. Last week, a male character named Kurasame was detailed as a teacher in Suzaku’s Peristylium Academy accompanied by a Tonberry. Other characters below in the screenshots include Nine, Ace, and Queen who were prominently shown in Square Enix’s Premier Trailer.
Nine, a lance wielding student, can use “Jump” abilities akin to the classic Dragoon class that damages enemies within range.
Ace wields a deck of cards and is portrayed as a young man with a puerile temperament. His cards have different actions, “Fire ST” being a prime example of a basic command casting a fireball at an opponent. In the screenshots below, Ace uses “Deck Open” where he is wielding floating cards and “Wall” which acts as a Barrier fending off enemy actions.
Queen is described as a candid and magnanimous student wielding a small sword. While her attacks are considered to be focused on close-range enemies, a special attack called “Cross” strikes enemies caught in its ‘X’ path and heals allies. She’s also caught using “Mithril Saber” and the aforementioned attack in the screens below.
Below are direct-feed screenshots displaying the powerful software on the PSP.
Only several days ago were we given screenshots of both gameplay and cutscenes courtesy of Famitsu. Today, a bevy of new images including the previous ones have been released on Game Watch. In one of the gameplay screenshots below, we’re given a look at Ifrit, a summon players can control for a set amount of time as indicated on the right. Hajime Tabata explains summons will be controllable for a set duration, and if killed in battle, can be restocked at a Peristylium base.
Not long ago did Tabata reassure us Type-0 will be the PSP’s most powerful software yet and it’s visually embodying his assurance. Cutscene images appear to be laboriously crafted on par with many PSP and PS2 titles to date.
Have a look at the brand new screenshots below:

Famitsu has finished up their coverage on the 1st Production Premier with the release of new Final Fantasy Versus XIII screenshots on their website. These screenshots were previously featured in scans in very poor quality. There isn’t an interview included with this release like there was with XIII-2 and Type-0 but that may be released at a later date. See the screenshots below.
UPDATE: Several more images released on Famitsu’s site. The images below are clearer since nearest neighbor interpolation wasn’t used for cropping.
Complementing the coverage of Final Fantasy Type-0 along with its sister titles this week, comes direct feed screenshots from Famitsu. Some screenshots appear to be in CG while others are clearly real-time showing off the gameplay. The two gameplay screenshots shows a party of three battling soldiers and another in what appears to be a mechanical enemy launching a full scale attack on its surroundings.
Check them out below!
To go with the original Final Fantasy XIII-2 screenshot released on the day of the 1st Production Premier, Square Enix has released two more screenshots as well as an extremely high definition render of Lightning clad in her new outfit. Although the screenshots are from scenes in the trailer, they aren’t simply direct feed captures. See them below.
