The first review for Final Fantasy Type-0 has been released, and unsurprisingly, Famitsu are the first out of the gate with it. The four reviewers gave the game 10, 9, 10 and 10 respectively, giving the game a total score of 39/40. This is the same score FFXIII attained from Famitsu.
Update: Here are the scans:
A Final Fantasy Type-0 trailer supplied with the limited edition version of Bump of Chickens “Zero” single has made it’s way online. The seven minute trailer mainly consists of cutscenes with quite a bit of new footage. This is possibly the last trailer we’ll get to see, so let’s hope it can tide you over until the games release. If it just isn’t enough for you, a 10 minute version of the promo video is available on Nico Nico which includes a three and a half minute long cutscene at the end. Enjoy!
The theme song for Final Fantasy Type-0 has been leaked a day early. Zero by Bump of Chicken was due to go on sale on the 19th but the single has managed to make it’s way online to the masses, earlier than expected. It’s certainly not the greatest Final Fantasy theme song but for those of you so inclined, listen to the track thanks to the power of Youtube, below.
The full 12 minutes of Final Fantasy Type-0 gameplay from yesterdays Nico Nico stream has been officially released by Square Enix. There’s a lot to take in, including possibly the most terrifying Malboro in Final Fantasy history.

Hajime Tabata has blessed Nico Nico users with a live stream of some new Final Fantasy Type-0 gameplay. The gameplay includes regular battles plus traversing the world with a Chocobo, the the RTS style Battle for Supremacy, and Airship battles. The quality may not be great but Tabata is quizzed about certain elements of the game during the stream which more than makes up for it. GameFAQ members Flower Girl and Kouli have translated the interview.
Is it hard because it’s action oriented?
Compulsory gamplay up to the ending is of low difficulty. Please don’t panic.
It does not entirely come off as an action game since there are RPG commands you have to use to clear the game. Characters still depend on level as in RPGs for battles.
Is it alright to play this if I never played FF before?
You can play this without any problems even if you have never played FF before.
This shares the same mythology as FF13 though so players who played FF13 might feel familiar.
How much is the approximate gameplay volume.
It’s run through would be around 40 hours but it is impossible to clear everything in a single run through. (i’m not sure about this part but it goes) There’s an additional fight in the 2nd play through which completes the game but that does not mean players cannot enjoy the world after everything is done.
Will there be DLC?
[None they will charge for anyway. However he does reveal that there will be free DLC available if you link the game to your Square Enix Members account]

Thanks to forum member Iron Maw for finding this.
Hajime Tabata has been interview by Square-Enix’s own Gangan Comic Magazine, in which he gives a few brief new details on Final Fantasy Type-0. The interview reveals that they’re still keeping their cards close to their chest, even though there’s only two weeks until the games release.
The first thing Tabata announces is that the game should take approximately 40 hours to complete during our first run. A fairly respectable length, especially for a portable title considering FFXIII was 50 hours in length. Interestingly, Tabata also says we’ll be able to experience a different story surrounding Class 0 during our second play through. He doesn’t go into any detail about what we can expect.
Other than this, Tabata also says we can expect a thirteenth main character to go with the twelve announced so far. It looks like we might have to wait until the games release to see who it could be.
The official site for Final Fantasy Type-0′s soundtrack has been updated today with tracklistings of the entire 3 disc OST as well as previews for 8 of the tracks.
The previews include a wide array of the different music we can expect throughout the game. The soundtrack will be released a day before the game on October 26th in Japan and will come in both standard and collectors edition flavors. See more details about the soundtracks release here.
Square Enix has updated the Final Fantasy Type-0 website with an extended TGS trailer containing tons of new footage and the less than endearing theme song by Bump of Chicken. You’ll get to see all the recently announced characters in motion as well as what seems like a rather somber and spoiler filled ending. Watch all 5 minutes of it for yourself here.
