E3 2014: Final Fantasy Type-0 Getting Remastered and Localized for PS4 and Xbox One


Dating back to an original Japanese PSP release in 2011, Final Fantasy Type-0 is coming West at long last. Not on PSP. Not even on Vita or mobile platforms. But on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Sweet!

The action-RPG installment of the Fabula Nova Crystallis subseries will be completely remastered in HD for the new-gen consoles.

“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,” said Hajime Tabata, director of FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0. “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.”

Square Enix isn’t sharing any other details about the HD release of Final Fantasy Type-0 right now, but the good news is you can finally stop begging and rest easy knowing that this long sought after chapter in the Final Fantasy franchise will finally reach North American shores. When? I have no clue. But it’s coming.

And if you missed the news earlier, Final Fantasy Type-0 mobile companion game Final Fantasy Agito has also been confirmed for North American Android and iOS release along with Final Fantasy VII G-Bike. These aren’t the major Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV bombshells you were probably hoping for, I know, but at least there’s a little something to get excited about at E3 if you’re a Final Fantasy fan.
