Take a look at the German box art for the standard edition of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD.
I wonder what made SE get rid of the logo from the original game https://www.google.co.uk/se...
What kind of game is this? There's like 4 or 5 FF games coming out now and I'm confused as hell. Is this single player fair or some MMO type thing? and where does this fall in the series? Its crazy bro!
Basically this game started life out as a mobile game, Final Fantasy Agito XIII. The mobile version later got scrapped and had its name changed to Type-0, and it was then released as a PSP title in Japan in 2011. It's a single player game, although there were plans for multiplayer early on in development. As far as I'm aware the game has a mission structure so there aren't any open worlds to explore and things like that, but I may be wrong. You play as Class 0 which consists of 12 students from a Magic School each with different fighting styles. It's action based and attacks are mapped to face buttons. You can switch between 3 characters during battle and when one dies you can call on one of the 11 other characters (there are 2 other playable characters, Rem and Machina, who I believe are essential to the story but aren't part of Class 0). The story itself revolves around a war between different nations.
Thank you for the explanation.
in like 2006 Square Enix announced Fabula Nova Crystallis, a series of games including Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Final Fantasy Agito XIII Agito XIII was meant to be a mobile game, but they ditched that and shifted it to PSP game while changing the name to Type-0. so this is the HD remake of Type-0 (Agito XIII). obviously Versus XIII eventually became Final Fantasy XV and SE are thinking about releasing FFXIII trilogy remaster so yeah there's a ton of Final Fantasy games on the horizon (after getting Lightning Returns and FF X|X-2 HD this year). we probably might even get Final Fantasy XII HD soon
I definitely would like to see a XII HD. Hopefully they work on that after XV. I didn't give XII the chance it deserved and I didn't complete it. Got lost somewhere and never got around to continuing. Seeing as I no longer have a copy of the game, or a PS2, I'd buy it.
No worries :) Personally I can't wait for this game. Some are quick to write it off simply because it's a port of a PSP title, but I'm just glad it's being localised so I can finally play it. There was a Japanese PSP demo that also released in 2011 which I downloaded, and although I didn't understand it I had a lot of fun playing it.
I really like it, its a nice change from the usual bland but iconic final fantasy box arts!
I prefer the standard white box with the game symbol. Luck the collectors edition will have it.
I like the traditional logo-only box arts better. still kinda miffed about only the first-print copies getting the FFXV demo
dat USK logo =/ never did like that huge logo plastering over my sexy box arts
i think they need to start developing and marketing other games besides just surviving off of the final fantasy name
I actually like it, like the gold theme although it's just another take on the typical "angry-stare white male walking towards the player".
Yeah, I don't know why Ace gets to take the spotlight on the front cover. I guess he was the first character revealed in the original Agito XIII trailer, and he symbolises 1. First character, first student of Class 0, first game in the "Type" series of Final Fantasy games? Maybe that's the logic behind it, or maybe I'm just looking way to deeply in to it xD
Yeah it's kind of hard to tell what way Square wanted to advertise it. I mean throughout the game I guess he is shown off a little different to the rest since he uses cards to battle and some people think it's unique (which it is) and comment on it, but I guess it's a little difficult to nail it all down since there's no real one protagonist by any means in the game.
