Final Fantasy Type-0 Fan Localization Has A Release Date

Angie Santiago writes: "Final Fantasy Type-0 has been heralded as one of the best games in the Final Fantasy franchise. It received a near perfect score from Famitsu (39 out of 40) and received high scores from other publications. Fans of the franchise here in the west were looking forward to being able to play this game but received the short end of the stick when a localization never happened."

Take that Square and your WRONG decisions!

Summons751624d ago

Yeah, with PsP phased out in NA having ZERO income and with Vita on life support and extremely low sales. It's clearly wrong of them to cut their losses and SAVE money by not localizing it because it WON'T be profitable.

Honestly they should just port it to the Ps3 then localize it.

Well, when Type 0 came out is when they should have been porting it. I agree with you and nidhogg. Square made the wrong decision not to port it to PSP back then, like 3 years ago. But of course it's too late now. FF games did reasonably well on PSP in the west, let alone the fact that the others were spin offs. Type 0 would have sold more than any of them

At this point they should PS3 port.

The industry shifted to a big business first attitude

But all hope is not lost.
Etc all do just fine with their niche stuff

And even Namco Bandai does fine with their Jrpgs

Reasonable budgeting can go a long way

After FFXHD sells well on Vita as it already has been in Japan, Square will reconsider a port and localisation. Also the problem isn't it would not be profitable. It would be. Enough people would buy the localized version to be profitable on day one. The issue is how profitable will it be. If it doesn't make as much of a profit as they think an equal investment in another project will, then why wouldn't they use those resources on the other more profitable project.

It's always funny when the fans have to make up for a companies incompetence... Squenix should have put the dubbed version out ages ago. Great work guys! Looking forward to the release!

tiffac0081624d ago

Its hard to support franchises and games when the companies themselves won't let their fans do so. Smh

zerocrossing1623d ago

Exactly. You would think that given the huge divide caused by FF XIII, Squenix would want to release Type-0 in the west to help lure back those fans who the new games alienated.

Maybe it has something to do with the Vita's poor sales so far? That, or Squenix are morons... Probably both those things actually.

So, is this something we're going to have to run off emulator? Not ideal, but I'd gladly play this way. I'd absolutely love to play Type 0 (which I've never played or even seen much of) on my Vita, but I'll take what I can get!

Shadowsteal1624d ago

How would you get this on a PS Vita?

Chrono1624d ago

No legit way, must use CFW.

kingdom181624d ago

Watch now SE will end up porting it to the vita and localizing it.
