Square has been consistently quiet and indecisive about releasing Type-0 in the west, but this could change soon if Square Enix’s CEO of the Americas and Europe Phil Rogers has his way.
YEEEEEEEEESSS. I need this in my life.
If you have the chance, play the Japanese version with the fan translated English. This Final Fantasy game puts all the others since IX to shame. It's downright amazing, what I'm hoping XV will be like.
As much as I'm sure it's a fantastic game, I don't trust people with a IX bias. Mainly because it's far from my favourite in the series (it is good though, don't get me wrong).
It's not the best, but it's the "last good one" IMO.
Considering X is my favorite game ever (tied with TLoU), I doubt that's true for me. Lol but if it really is that great then we need this to come over, at least an HD Vita port
It's one of my favorites. I actually like it as much as I did VII. Even VIII was great, IMO.
its not out yet is it? i know there was one with the disk 2 menu translated but sk....de isnt done right?
last i checked the translation wasnt finished and i on my second play through on the Japanese version it certainly is one of the best ff
Better not get hopes up too erly...
Don't count on it. This is Square-Enix. Unless they change the name, I wouldn't get my hopes up.
They'll release it as Final Fantasy XVI. *facepalm*
@disagrees: You can pout all you want to and disagree with what I'm saying but Square-Enix's track record speaks for itself. Last Remnant anyone? Versus XIII becoming FFXV and multiplat ring a bell? Any of you that trust SE to actually listen to what fans want (and before Abriael chimes in, FFXIV is not SE listening to what fans want because if it were they'd have got it right the first time) are forgetting the way they've been for 8 straight years. Naivety is your prerogative, realism is mine.
It's a shame, but you can't always get what you want. Square-Enix has made some questionable choices this gen, but you and lots of others make it seem like they haven't made a good game in a decade or something. They just haven't pleased everybody, and it's a bigger deal than ever before because internet and social media and everything else is so much bigger than it was back when even XII came out. So many of the people hating on XIII, for example, have never even played the game. I'd argue taking a reserved approach to Square-Enix and anything they do- they DID give us TWEWY and Nier this gen, two superb titles- but I don't think too many WANT to give them much of a chance.
Well I played FFXIII. I hated FFXIII. Before FFXIII was released, my personal worse FF title was FFII. Now, FFII is by far a superior game to FFXIII. Square-Enix have earned the ire of their userbase. Foregoing logic, they took inspiration from shooters to make a Final Fantasy game. There are no two genres that are more disparate than JRPGs like Final Fantasy and FPS' like Call of Duty. So arrogant were they, they believed they were the dictators of console success due to their success during the PS1 and PS2 eras, completely forgetting that their success was directly attributed to the fact that they put out high quality games that the majority of JRPG fans loved. They rested on their laurels, thought they could mishandle a franchise and mistreat the fans without consequence, they foolishly offered exclusive content to a fanbase that showed no interest in said content, they lied, they delayed, and they kept using closed mega theatres to keep information away from gamers while making backdoor deals that didn't help anyone in the end. Churning out some decent handheld games does not sound like the same company responsible for masterpieces like Final Fantasy IV, Final Fantasy Tactics, or Chrono Trigger. When the company was Squaresoft, the games gracefully handled the delicate balance between story and gameplay so that even if a game technically was linear, it never felt like it was because you were still given enough freedom to poke around searching for things, talking to people, and just exploring. Now, Square-Enix are synonymous with linearity, repetition, and most recently boob jiggle. Boob jiggle. From a company that created 2 of the most long lasting JRPG masterpieces in the world in Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest. Square-Enix have squandered their chances. They don't deserve the benefit of the doubt until they can show us that skill and talent that brought us the aforementioned masterpieces of gaming history.
No one should get their hopes up for this game I agree. Still it's nice someone addressed it. Hell, I say do an HD upgrade on it and release it on Vita/PS3/PS4. Otherwise a digital PSP download will suffice. The longer they wait though, the less they'll make off that route.
release on vita and I will buy vita.
HEll yea an exclusive Final fantasy would definitely push me to get a Vita.
This game makes me want to learn Japanese.
Blows my mind that this hasn't gotten released yet.
The fact that this game, a final fantasy title nonetheless, hasn't seen a release out of Japan tells you quite a bit about the state of affairs at Squeenix. I suppose they feared the piracy that plagues the PSP, but releasing on two platforms (psp/psvita) could've covered the cost plus benefits.
The last great FF was X or XII imo. I have extremely high hopes for XV but type 0 has been the only one worthy of the name in a lot! This is awesome news.
It's baffle me why SE don't re-release this for PS3/Vita and localize it -_- And it's crazy that a lot of people want to play Type-0. But all we hear from SE is they will focus on making mobile/social game, even when they got a big loss on their financial.
As little as I relish the impending digitalisation of games, I'll play this game no matter how they decide to release it. I'll make an exception for it that is. I'll settle for whatever is the easiest way for them to release it, I really don't mind. If it has to be a digital version for the ps3/Vita with english subtitles, so be it.
I hear that the story is good but this battle system it's not to my tastes, it's literally a non-stop skill spam-fest exactly how FFXV is going to be, ofc there is a lot of people who is going to like that (those who don't like to think) but before u get your self hyped better check some gameplay videos first with battles & be sure that u r interested to play a game with this battle system, the battle system as I read is similar to some other garbage game SE did 3rd Birthday.
Turned-based is played out, kid. Old news. Sure, I liked it in the older versions, but I'm embracing the new generation.
So, the people who think action-RPGs are played out? What about them?
@Whatever I played the japanese demo and it still the same ATB with magic and summon. Only they update it with some fresh approach, like now you can bring 7 characters on the field (from total 14 playable characters) and swap them in a blink of an eye in the middle of battle. Not only that, your friends can help you in battle when you play on ad-hoc mode. They also bring classic world map again and you can eksplore it with chocobo or airship, just like old time FF. But not only that, now there's an RTS element on world map when you can deploy your troops and fight Byakko military troops (the antagonist on this game). It's really fun and different from other FF, and not even close on comparison with The 3rd Birthday.
This is how Type-0 battles is: http://www.youtube.com/watc... I check it already & I repeat I don't like this battle system for many reasons, first there is no tactic to win whatsoever u just spam your best/stronger skill/spell again & again & again & that's it, second u control just 1 character & that's because guess what the battles is in "real-time" the other characters play on their own, some AI control them & u know I hate to have controllable characters by AI in my party, I want to give individual commands to each one of my pt members as I did in all the previous FF games from I till X. So in short, u control just 1 character, the battle system is spam-fest & the rest characters is on auto-pilot, all those elements mean 1 thing, that "I DON'T LIKE IT" simple as that.
"first there is no tactic to win whatsoever u just spam your best/stronger skill/spell again & again & again & that's it," Err, do you read the video description? "-Chapter 7 - Defeating Lv.99 World Map Monsters. During the previous chapters you have to run away from these monsters, but now with my Lv.99 Rem with Meteor and Proof Of Agito. they are nothing." That video only show where to beat rare monster with Rem on lvl 99 and the best magic + equipment to beat those monster. Every RPG is really easy if you reach maximum level and the best equipment that outgun your enemies -_- "second u control just 1 character & that's because guess what the battles is in "real-time" the other characters play on their own, some AI control them & u know I hate to have controllable characters by AI in my party, I want to give individual commands to each one of my pt members as I did in all the previous FF games from I till X. " Yes, you can control / give individual commands to your party member if you don't like the A.I. That's why I ALREADY SAID: you can swap to other party members in the middle of the battle. It's faster this way rather than to wait every turn like classic turn-based. And EVERY RPG on this gen are like this, such as Ni no Kuni, Tales, Persona, etc with dual option: manual / auto (A.I). If you don't like this style than you surely miss a lot of amazing RPG.
@WhateverBlah I think its funny how someone can comment about how game play is going to be when they never played it. You make it sound like Final Fantasy turn based games had so much strategy to it which has the same amount of strategy as FF type-0. You have those same monsters where you use similar strategies in every final fantasy game. And its funny you basing off a video where the guy is level 99 fighting easy monsters. Every final fantasy game if you have all characters at level 99 the game would be a cake walk except that few side monsters.
@Inception "Yes, you can control / give individual commands to your party member if you don't like the A.I. That's why I ALREADY SAID: you can swap to other party members in the middle of the battle. It's faster this way rather than to wait every turn like classic turn-based." And how exactly u can do that when the battles is so fast-paced? can u pause the battle in order to think? I doubt that.. so if u swap party members to give them commands the battle will still continue while u thinking what to do, no thx I don't like that & the AI is there even if I don't give them commands they will still hit on their own they put the AI because the fights is fast paced & it's not effective to control multiple characters & because it will be much better & more effective to concentrate on just one. So in short nothing u said make me change my mind, the battles is fast-paced - no good for me, if u decide to swap each time to each party members to give them commdands individually the battle doesn't pause - no good for me, AI is still there in order to do your work... yep NO GOOD FOR ME, fck those "modern" JRPGs who play like that & was made for the lazy/brainless kids of today, I prefer to play old classic JRPGs than any of those garbage.
@Whatever "And how exactly u can do that when the battles is so fast-paced? can u pause the battle in order to think? I doubt that.." You doubt it because you're not even try it by yourself. ME, on the other hand, already play it and don't have any problem with the game. Nor any of my friends who already beat the full game in japanese. "so if u swap party members to give them commands the battle will still continue while u thinking what to do, no thx I don't like that & the AI is there even if I don't give them commands they will still hit on their own they put the AI because the fights is fast paced & it's not effective to control multiple characters & because it will be much better & more effective to concentrate on just one." I don't understand your complain. The classic FF also did the same thing with ATB: the enemy still attack you while you're thinking what action you want to give to your party. Except FF I, II, III, and X who not use ATB. But by your complain, i'm thinking right now that you never play FF in your life. "So in short nothing u said make me change my mind" In the beginning you already stuck with your own opinions, even you misunderstood the game mechanic by posted the video with characters on lvl 99 + the best equipment. I don't think i can change that kind of stupidity ^^ "yep NO GOOD FOR ME, fck those "modern" JRPGs who play like that & was made for the lazy/brainless kids of today, I prefer to play old classic JRPGs than any of those garbage." I'm trying to have a good-nice-polite discussion in here. But fuck it. You just a kid who can't think with your brain and blame the game because your brain don't have the capacity to understand how to play it. Good day kid.
@whateverblah So your main complaint, is that it is a spam fest that requires no thinking. But, then complain that the gameplay is too fast to think properly. I think the real problem is your inability to perform quick thinking. Games are so much harder when you get to think about what move to do for 10 min.
Ive always wanted to play this game...please come to the vita somehow.
Take my cold hard earned money!
Let's pray that SE still want 'our cold hard earned money' >.<
Wada is no longer with the company. So they should want our money now. lol!
please have it as a psn download. I rather play it on the big screen and enjoy the great cgi graphic that SE never fails at than on the measly lil PSP screen
goddamn i hope this is true.
A HD version for PS3/PS Vita would be awesome, and will definitely buy the PS3 version.
They should really put it on PS3.
