Game Idealist takes a look as to whether or not JRPG fans should buy Final Fantasy Type-0 HD on PS4 and Xbox One.
Considering we never got it in the west AND it's been completely revamped so it looks 100 times better than the psp? That's a definite yes.
The game looks awesome and it has a demo for FFXV. This is definitely worth buying for JRPG fans, not even a qusetion
Is it classic turn based or that new real time stuff that square went to after abandoning the superior combat engines of old?
"or that new real time stuff that square went to after abandoning the superior combat engines of old" I dont like turn based, so that makes your comment superior to mine or just you forcing your opinion on others?
I played the PSP one and just found it really weird. There's a weird card element and it's not like any other FF I've played. Maybe I'm remembering it wrong, but I actually thought Ff13 was better
I'm with you thekhurg, square has had a 11 year retreat, every other Japanese company has eaten their jrpg lunch. And now they want to feed us more of there j-western-action rpg remake. Slap in the face! Why don't square get the action rpg fan to buy their action rpg's like people bought the turn based? I know I know they say it takes 5-6 years to make an AAA turn based JRPG. But they should have given up on this force feed action a long time ago. Or at least sale the IP's to Sony, Microsoft, or Nintendo by now.
Personally I still see it as a cash grab (a portable game remastered and sold at $70). That and a way for them to expand the PS userbase (primarily in Japan). It will be worth it for me when the price halves though for sure. I don't need a demo for a game that I know I'm going to play. We've already waited so long. Another year or so is nothing in the scheme of things.
the first thing im shoving into my ps4 is the FFXV demo disc i dont care that much about type-0
There isn't a FFXV demo disc...
@Kurisu im sorry THE DIGITAL DOWNLOADABLE DEMO now that i think about it it wouldnt make since if it was a disk but what matters is theres still a demo and i dont like how many people disagree about me wanting to play the demo
I don't think people are disagreeing with you because you want to play the demo. More so the fact that you're automatically shunning Type-0 HD when people have been crying out for a Western release for years. I played the Japanese PSP demo a few years back and it was a lot of fun. Maybe you should give it a chance.
@Kurisu Dude theres never a final fantasy game that i never played ive played type-0 on psp and u cant blame me for prioritizing a final fantasy game over the other
Only tools pay $60 for a demo. Type-0 will be loads more enjoyable than that bloody demo.
If it were not for Bloodborne, I'd be getting this. Love to get for the FF15 demo too, but Im afraid it may just sit there for awhile. But it looks amazing and I will play it eventually. I also think that if square is smart, after they use the demo to sell a bunch of games, they should make it free for everyone...b/c it will only help their cause...I think. Maybe, they figure only die hard FF fans will buy 0 and thus will be nicer concerning Duscae. I actually have faith in 15 though.
Are you aware that the FFXV demo is limited to first print copies of Final Fantasy Type-0?
Same here, i could even imagine the FF15 demo being available on PSN one day. As I'll be getting it anyway, i don't need to play the demo.
Short Answer: YES! Long Answer: YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEES!
@Gaffyh: Yeh type-0 on psp was so weird. The camera was horrible and felt a bit clunky to me.
what kind of question this even is?
I'll get it most likely but not until it's a lot cheaper. Too many backlogged games and I just bought Korg Volca Sample so no cash for it. lol * I wouldn't even play the FF15 demo anyways. I want FF15 to be as great as an experience as possible so I'm trying to avoid as much gameplay and screenshots and info as possible. I've only ever played FF7 in the main series, and FF11 & FFTA2 for other games in the FF world.
FF1,4,6,9,10, TA, and the original Tactics are all worth a shot depending on your tolerance for old-school RPGs. FF11 and its first couple of expansions were phenomenal, though painfully difficult, grindy, and sometimes wholly inaccessible.
I keep forgetting about the release of this. I'm on the fence still. I like RPGs and all, but I miss the turn based ones. I've had my action fill. There's not much thought and/or strategy involved in ARPGs IMO. Also, the demo isn't something that will make me buy it either. I've waited for Versus for a loooooong time, I already know I'm going to get it. The demo would just irritate me playing the same thing over and over until the game hits retail. As for Square saying it take 5+ years to make a good AAA RPG, I'm inclined to disagree. They do it once, and then they have something to work from. Problem is, they're making excuses not to do it once.
Definitely, and it comes with Episode Duscae.
Like others said, its a no-brainer actually. The game looks good, it seems to be more fun than all FF 13 games together and last but not least it also has that FF15 demo.
It looks like two games (lvl 99 cap for the demo) in 1 for myself wich is great.
No level cap is great, but once I've explored the demo I don't plan on burning myself out.
@Kurisu If the blue brontosaurus are lvl 99 or lvl 70+ , i'll fight them until i win . If i dont need to be lvl 99 to beat everything i wont grind till lvl 99.
Reminds me of the dinosaurs from 13. I hated that game so much though that I couldn't grind past the point where they one hit KO me.
i dont see why it wouldnt be worth buying. its a decent effort on a HD port, we could see that they spent time on this instead of just rushing something out. the exclusion on multiplayer mode is kinda sad but i most likely would have just ignored anyway.
I feel like it's been years since there's been a JRPG I've really like, but I keep trying them out. I'm hoping this will scratch that JRPG itch, at least until Persona 5 comes out. My dream would be a new Dragon Quest on consoles that follows in the footsteps of DQVIII. Hell, even a DQVIII remaster would be amazing.
I played and beat the PSP translation a while back. I highly recommend it to any Action JRPG fan! Can't wait to play it again with HD graphics.
Couldn't hurt to try it and stuff. Never know if you will like a game unless you play it and stuff.
Even if it didnt come with FFXV I would still buy it
Only if you can stomach the shity battle system (this goes for old school JPRG fans) & just to experience the story that's it, but it will be hard for someone who hate this brainless action crap to eat it in da face for so many hours until it finish the game, but what can you do blame the new gen of kiddie gamers, they love to button mash brainless in every game they play if this trend continue strategy & thinking will be completely removed from JRPGs, we will just hack n slash our way through, so much fun right?
I would like you see you wining even 1 stage in FF Type 0 whit just button smashing . Are Action RPGs a new thing?
Button mashing will lead you to fail a mission in Type-0. lol. Good luck with that.
I've played the PSP version. It gets difficult. You can't win with button mashing.
As an old-school RPG fan I've got to say that action RPGs have the ability to be just as strategic and rewarding as turn-based ones. At first I thought KH and Elder Scrolls games were just mashing the attack button, but as you come across more difficult enemies, you are forced to think more about healing, positioning, guarding, weaknesses, timing, etc. As for mindless battle systems, I would have to cite Ni No Kuni. I loved the art style and story, but the battles were way too easy and tedious and the majority of your spells and moves just felt arbitrary. The monsters also start to feel overly derivative once you've gone through enough of the game.
The closer the release date, the more I want the chance to play Episode Duscae. So it's been pre-ordered. The more I learn about Type-0 the better it seems. They've really gone to great lengths with this HD remaster, and here is the proof: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
TBH, I'm going to buy it because of FFXV demo.
Should be on the vita.........-_-
I agree but i cant deny that it looks a lot better now especially the Character models so im happy to get it for ps4
It's definitely worth buying a Vita for, I am SOOO happy that Square-Enix listened to their fans who petitioned for this game to come to the west on a portable.....wait, they've decided to ignore those people and put a portable game on a HD console, HUH?!?!
does anyone know the graphics comparison? are they equal between X1 and PS4?
This generation you should buy your multiplattform games always on ps4.
I disagree 100% I'm buying all multiplat games on the One because of my friends. I'd rather have people I know to play with then slightly better resolution
