Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, the old PSP action-RPG turned PlayStation 4 and Xbox One remaster, has been confirmed for a launch date of March 17, 2015 in North America. (It’ll be out on the 19th in Japan, and the 20th in Europe.) The game will retail for $59.99.

Included in that price will be a voucher to download a playable demo of Final Fantasy XV, the way too long in development continuation of the core numbered series formerly known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII. The demo, subtitled Episode Duscae, will contain “elements from the opening sections of the full game, but alters story progression and more to create a unique first-play experience.”

Further unifying the two titles, Square Enix has announced a restructuring of the Final Fantasy XV development team, replacing Tetsuya Nomura as the game’s director with Hajime Tabata, the director of the original PSP Final Fantasy Type-0 and its newfangled HD remake. This move will allow Nomura, who created the characters, story and universe of Final Fantasy XV, to focus all of his attention on finishing Kingdom Hearts III, yet another Square Enix title that has been mired in an overly long development cycle.

Hopefully this move will help speed things up for both titles before gamers just stop caring anymore. Of course, the sad news here is the fact that Square Enix still won’t give any indication of when Final Fantasy XV or Kingdom Hearts III will be completed. We can only pray that 2015 will be the year for at least one of them, but I for one am not holding my breath.
