Final Fantasy Type-0 fan's English translation shut down by 'certain game company'

The fan-lead English translation of Final Fantasy Type-0 has been taken down due to "threats and false accusations."

The story is too old to be commented.

It almost seems like Square Enix wouldn't have had to shut him down if they did their damn job years ago.

Oh wait.

They could have reached out and teamed up with the project members. I mean, why not? They could have at least been more tasteful about their approach.

Inception743d ago

Agreed. Just like Xseed who bought the licensed from a fans who already translate the PC ver of YS: Oath In Felghana. It's a great move from Xseed and that will make fans felt appreciated.

But this show how square-enix are out of touch from their fans.

Kind of reminds me of Sega. Fans spend years creating an epic remix of Streets of Rage which after playing, would happily have paid for a console port.

Instead Sega stayed quiet until the day it was released then said 'no, TAKE THAT DOWN" which they are within their rights to do but wouldn't paying these guys a couple of quid for their work and creating the port not be a win/win for everyone?

Another worthwhile Final Fantasy project was butchered by Square, who would've thought that Square will butcher something. They never do that! Especially since Enix merger.

I like to think that between us and retarded management of this company there are people who waited until the last possible moment with this in order for the project to deliver. You know, normal people.

Yeah, it always annoys me to see dedicated fans working hard in their own time and off their own bat on projects like these... then being shut down. Square could easily work with them, tacitly ignore them or even recognise the DEMAND and get involved!

Supply & Demand.

There was a demand for something and Square wasn't supplying it so somebody else attempted to.

Then Square got hurt feelings because somebody did what they couldn't.

s-e should have done this when they was starting the project. tbh this fan translation will probably kill off some of its sales for the hd port.

its such a shame that s-e could not see the potential of this game years ago though.

Too late, I already finished it in English

Chaos_Raiden743d ago

Square Enix pisses me off now. They could just shut down the fan project's translation with better approaches.

hkgamer742d ago

its such a shame, s-e has every right to do this, but they must have done it in the worst way possible.

they could have easily shut down the project before its completion, or before these guys put so much effort into it.

Pozzle741d ago

Exactly. It's not like the translation team kept their project hidden, so you'd think Square would have shut it down loooong before now if they truly had a problem with it. It seems very vindictive to wait until the patch was finished to shut it down. All that hard work for nothing. :(

Toon_Link743d ago

What a bummer! Glad I thought this might happen and nabbed it right away before it could get pulled. Hopefully people will be able to find it elsewhere.
