Final Fantasy Type-0 Rides Out On A Chocobo In October

By Ishaan . July 19, 2011 . 8:59pm

It’s a good day for Final Fantasy Type-0 news. Square Enix just announced a new release date for the game, along with a new trailer. Following its delay out of summer closer to fall, the game is now pegged for an October 13th release. Here’s the trailer:



While a U.S. or European date hasn’t been announced, Square Enix’s Tetsuya Nomura recently stated that the company is looking into an overseas release for Final Fantasy Type-0.

  • Hmm if we’re lucky we’ll get it early 2012.

    • Advent_Andaryu

      It’s only taking Square Enix one month from the Japanese release of FFXIII-2 to localize it the US, which is not that long at all. If this game is a huge success then I bet we’ll get it by Christmas.

        FFXIII-2 is getting that treatment because they’re localising it as they’re developing.

        Type 0’s overseas release is still up in the air even right now.
        The amount of characters that need voice acting (they said around 40) also means they might need more time that usual.

        If they decide to localise only after the Japanese release we’ll only see this game in English next year (probablky summer if they’re quick).

        • Advent_Andaryu

          Very true, good point. XIII-2 does seem to be more geared towards the western market.

  • This new trailer is completely AWESOME! Finally they revealed the release date and new characters! I just love Seven since I saw her on that old concept art made by Nomura-san (that one that shows 12 characters). CAN’T WAIT for a western release of this game! *-*

  • Release it over here so it can be pirated like crazy

    at least it’ll fare better than other psp games since it’s final fantasy

    • like how theres no other JRPGs other than FF XIII whenever i go to shop
      its frustrates me to no end

      • Online shopping fixes that problem

        • well that poses another problem actually >.<
          i have no idea how to shop online plus i live somewhere where the mailman can't come most of the time

    • DisgaeaGuy11

      I think it’ll do well if it’s released for download on the Vita. No piracy to speak of there, and there won’t be for a very long time, if there ever will be.

  • I love it. SO much that I don’t even know what to type. I watched it like, 5 times already and I still can’t get over how beautiful it is. Izana don’t die ;_;

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Wow… I’m speechless. I think this will make me almost forgive everything SE’s done up til now. Almost. And I think I just fell in love with Seven. Dominate me, my new mistress… O_O

    • Yu_TheKing

      XD She’s like Ivy just as a teenager. Love her voice along with Deuce’s, Hate Jack’s though. The game is going to be amazing. I just hope we get it not too far after the Japanese release. I might not be able to stop myself from reading spoilers.

  • RagnaXBL

    Wow i still can’t believe this game is on psp

  • I’m more excited about this than any other SE game. Other than Versus. Versus was awesome lookin’.

    This and Versus. SE, don’t mess up now. ;)

  • Yu_TheKing

    They should’ve made Deuce blonde or a red-head or something. Still <3 her anyway. I want this so much. They're killing me with the details.

  • Vyrhn

    october 13? sooner than i expected, looking forward to it, also i hope it get localized soon :)

  • darkfox1

    omg I’m gonna love playing this game so much. The amount of characters and the relationship between all them are gonna be cool to watch. And the gameplay man hype

  • Aoshi00

    Some major seiyuu cast, Goku voicing the old lady lol (like she did in One Piece..)  Kamiya Hiroshi’s Machina sounds cool…  and being a FF game on 2 UMDs should have tons of voices unlike Last Promise..

    I’m glad they aren’t calling this XIII Agito anymore (almost forgot the original name like Kinect being Natal before) since it really has nothing to do w/ 13 at all.. they really should change the name for Versus too as we won’t get that game in a while..

    • PrinceHeir

      love Hiroshi Kamiya :D

      Bakemonogatari FTW!!!!

      ehh i think they should stick with Versus XIII since they did say the share the same crystal mythology and all.

      cannot wait for this.

      Oct 13 is my B-day. my present is gonna be awesome :P

      • How about if they just called it FF Versus but its still part of FNC.

        Oh well it looks good either way.  Name isnt that important unless they want to really expand upon it like with Type-0

  • Best out of the 3 FF’s. Mai waifu Kana Hanazawa.

    • Guest

      sorry but u get Cadetmster as your waifu

  • PantsuKun

    Spine-tingling. 8D

  • importing the LE Jp!! 

  • OMG Seven…Oh how I love you. Seven, Sice and Rem <3

    Shiva looks extremely wonderful!

    • Yeah, Seven is really hot. <3

      • AzureNova

        Seven looks just like Lightning from XIII lol

  • Holy…crap.

  • joesz

    Spensa, you forgot to mention that the theme song will be performed by Bump of Chicken:p

  • Syltique

    It’s just flawless.  

    The rock music fits perfectly with the dark nature of the game, and is used to great effect in the trailer.  I couldn’t believe that part where the Byakko soldiers just shatter into pieces from that laser.

    It looks like the best cast of any FF game ever made.  Deuce looks amazing, strutting around.  Jack is brutal.  Seven looks like one of my favorites.  Ace looks like a great leader.  Queen, Nine, Sice, I can just go on and on.  And we still have 3 main characters left to reveal (Trey – Archer, Cinque – Handgun, Unnamed – Mace)!!!

    Between the raw action shown in this trailer, the expansive exploration through towns and world maps, the music, the cast …. I’m just blown away.

    • Yeah, the trailer was presented perfectly, and the cutscenes and music were awesome! Also, that moogle’s voice was adorable!

      • Shinji Kazuya

        The Moggle was so damn cute with that voice and ending the sentences with “kupo” and “po”! <3

  • imaguni

    Just take my money, Squeenix! :( It’s yours! Go on! 

  • OMG that’s embarassing. They have all the same face.
    There are like 5 female character who look like Lighting, and 5 male character who all the same as tidus/vann !!

  • SolNeko

    Best thing that happened to psp imho. localize it SquareEnix!

  • I like what I see, I’d buy this ASAP if localized.

  • Shinji Kazuya

    Excellent! Epic!! Outstanding!!!
    I WANT IT! CAN’T WAIT!! :<

    The soundtrack is so awsome! Can't wait to grab the OST!

  • Since Square Enix usually works fast, i hope that we can get this late this year or early next year….

  • AzureNova

    That trailer was absolutely stunning! The music, and visuals looked very good, and there wasn’t one character I really didn’t like. I cant wait to get my hands on this!

  • Raksha5 Akashi

    Jack, Jack ^^ I always loved him, and now I love him even more <3 His voice! Isn't it Zack's voice?

  • SerendipityX

    Looks great but I’d be even more hyped and excited if we had overseas release date. (>_<)/

  • One more reason why playing on handhelds is so much better than playing on HD consoles. 

  • I don’t know, this looks to good to be true. I don’t want to be disappointed like with FFXIII.

  • Gosh this looks utterly terrible. They need to just kill off the series now. All they are doing is spewing out graphically-pleasant piles of garbage. The Final Fantasy series used to be amazing. This is just filth. It has the same fate that Breath of Fire has, Castlevania…. It’s just sad.
