A Tonberry Follows This Final Fantasy Type-0 Character

imageFamitsu has a look at four characters from Final Fantasy Type-0 (previously known as Final Fantasy Agito XIII).


Ace and Queen were first shown in Jump, but Famitsu has a few more details. Ace has a cool appearance and a burning fighting spirit. He’s said to be childish and reckless at times. In battle, Ace uses cards to fight in tricky ways. Queen is sort of a contrast to Ace. Known for her integrity and honesty, Queen stands up against injustice armed with a slender sword.


Nine is armed with a spear and is mentally prepared to die with his comrades on the battlefield. Kurasame, another new character, is a cadet instructor for the Suzuku region. He’s accompanied by a tonberry.


In Final Fantasy Type-0 players control parties with three characters, which you can switch on the fly. You’ll face different enemy types and changing characters is key. Each character has their own weapon and abilities. It’s important to pick the right character for the situation. Targeting enemy commanders is a main strategy. Defeat a leader and the other enemies will surrender.


Final Fantasy Type-0 is slated for a summer release on PSP.

    So, he’s a Tonberry tamer?

    You know… I still have this memory of one such Tonberry wiping my entire team in FF6 dead with one attack that came entirely out of nowhere…

  • I haven’t seen a Tonberry ina Final Fantasy in such a long time… lol It looks so cute! :D Kurasama looks pretty bad ass.

    • Umm… your avatar… umm

      Didn’t you play XIII-1 past the main story? Plenty of Tonberries to get frustrated about.

  • a beastmaster! that’s so cool has a tonberry as a pet!!

  • Now please make a Moogle a playable character just like Mog.

  • WOW x 1000 + Infinity

    Not only does Kurasame look like a bad ass but a) he has a Tonberry, which is my favourite enemy in the entire FF universe (Cactuar is second) and b) his Tonberry looks badass. Kurasame is a pretty much going to get the most playtime out of all the characters.

    Best news I’ve heard all day.

      I don’t mean to dampen your enthusiasm….but I think he’s going to be NPC judging by the fact that the main cast are students and he is a teacher….and I kind of get the evil traitor vibe from him.

    “Ace has a cool appearance and a burning fighting spirit. He’s said to be childish and reckless at times.” I think I know what Sawada’s fav chara is going to be. lol Sorry Sawada but that was the honest to goodness first thing to pop into my head when I read it. I’m excited I hope the all these charas won’t convoluted the game though. So many charas to keep track of already. Please tell me SE did a good job of giving each chara a story worth caring about and not just general plot out lines and called it a day. High hopes for the game. :)

  • This game just sounds more epic and epic each time I hear about it. Ace using cards sounds cool, so will probably be a definitive asset to my party.

    Tonberry! Make me a sandwich!

    • I don’t know about the sandwich but you’ll definitely get a Chef’s Knife.

      • 9999hp gone??? noooo…..

        I will laugh my ass off if he can use his Tonberry’s knife as a weapon, and the sound effect every time he uses it to do ANY sort of attack is:


  • I love Tonberries. When they harvest right, they’re good enough to eat.

  • NoElixirs

    Type-0 will probably be the most enjoyable of the FNC bunch.

  • But can it evolve into a Tonberry King?

    • Only if you trade it while it’s holding a King’s Rock.

      • Yu_TheKing

        Omegosh Pokemon Reference *-*

      • Gah, it’s disobeying me. Time for more badges.

  • He’s so badass he as a Tonberry as a pet? O_O I sense a fave character coming on… XD

    The more I see of this game, the more I’m really liking the idea of it… :)

  • IceRomancer

    Wow I hope instructors are playable, especially if there all as badass as kurasame!

    • Ren

      Probably not, they already revealed there would be 14 player characters in total and those would be the 12 card named students + Machina and Rem.

      • IceRomancer

        Awww that’s too bad :(
        Well hopefully he’ll accompany you on some missions then!

  • Feynman

    The fact that the characters are described using the sort of terminology one might use to describe characters in a crappy shonen anime does not bode well for this game.

  • Is nine the one on the trailer which makes a brief appearance? He’s so cool i’m so gonna play him!!Im exited for this game..!!


  • Nine’s voiced by Daisuke Ono and Kurasama’s voice by Takahiro Sakurai. lol can’t wait to see videos from the game. XD

  • Code

    haha approve owo; It’s about time Tonberry has his day in the sun — or you a cave or whatever opo;
