Kitase Unsure Of Final Fantasy Type-0 Western Release

Despite Square Enix preparing Final Fantasy Type-0 for a release in Japan this summer, the Japanese publisher has said absolutely nothing about a release outside of Japan. And recent comments from Yoshinori Kitase, the game's producer, do little to comfort fears that it may never release outside of Japan.

I am disappoint.

I hope we hear more about this soon though. I really would be devastated if Type-0 was Japan-only.

It not. Square is not like Namco. They are confident that fans will support the Final Fantasy Franchise. So it defiantly coming to the USA. When i get the Vita, i will defiantly be buying the game.

I'll believe it when it comes from the mouth of SE themselves. The fact that Kitase himself isn't entirely sure does not bode well. Considering the game is out this Summer in Japan and that SE hasn't said a lick about a Western release is disconcerting. With the imminent launch of the Vita by year-end, you also have to question if they're worried about the timing.

Don't read into this wrong, this is a hugely profitable opportunity for Square Enix. They WILL release Final Fantasy Type-0 in the West. The question is how will it be delivered? It may come as a PS3 HD port in the West, or as a launch title PlayStation Vita.

Yeah I gotta agree. SE won't just skip over the game for the US. I mean it's been in dev for quite awhile and has had alot of money put into it. It would be quite stupid of SE to skip a US release.

I personally would love to see it released as a HD PS3 port as it's quite a good looking game but I don't know if they would be willing to do that so soon.

Looking back however it makes sense now that the game was not at E3 as they would not want to hype it up if it may not be getting a normal release here.

That would be a shame if it doesn't see a western release.

If we get Square Enix PSP games like The 3rd Birthday, Dissidia 012, and Tactics Ogre, we will definitely get FF Type-0.

I think they're really worried about the timing, especially with the imminent Vita launch.

With all those previous games, they announced a Western release pretty early on. For Type-0, they've said nothing.

Vita has BC with digital releases of PsP games though.

Every FF game gets localized. This will too.

He just cant say

Theres 0 percent chance it isnt in the english language

ff gaiden for the ds took a year to announce

VampiricDragon2714d ago

chillax. Of course hes not allowed to say anything

EVERY FF for the last 15 years has come over here. So its not even debatable

TenkoTAiLS2714d ago

Lucky you said 15 years, cause there's been a few that never made it over previously, that has been rectified now, but Final Fantasy 2,3 and 5 never had a worldwide release originally.
