The Final Fantasy Type-0 Demo Will Be Available Next Week

By Ishaan . August 4, 2011 . 8:49pm

Earlier this week, Square Enix announced that they would be releasing a Japanese demo for Final Fantasy Type-0 on the PlayStation Network sometime in the future. It turns out that’s a lot sooner than expected — the demo will be available next week.


You’ll be able to grab it on August 11th both from the game’s website and off the PlayStation Store. You can read up on just what the demo will include in this post. The full game will be available on October 13th in Japan.

    Well damn, I was completely wrong on that one. Looks like I have something to mark on my calender. Still hope for a new demo w/ more aerial combat at TGS, though.

  • Nice, hopefully this site runs through the demo for us. 

    • godmars

      Yeah, its not like some of don’t have JP PSN accounts and can try it ourselves.

      oh wait XD.

      • You don’t need JP account XD Just download it off their website and be lost in a world of wonder *___*

    • Yu_TheKing

      Or you could go to 

      It’s where I get all my demos :3

  • Woo, can’t wait! :D  It looks so good and screenshots/videos hardly ever do a game justice. Looking forward to seeing it in motion in person.

  • Don’t know japanese? Who cares? Bring on the demo! XD

  • Barrit

    Edit: Damn!.. totally read the article way too fast. lol

    • Exkaiser

      “You’ll be able to grab it on August 11th both from the game’s website…”

  • and I got my PSP a month ago. PERFECT.

  • Zonic505

    WOW, that was quick! Can’t wait to try it out.

  • SlashZaku

     Don’t remember the last time I checked out info on the game (characters, story, gameplay, ect..  Just know about the whole localization thing as of late).  I’ve kind of been on a ‘blackout’ for it.  Will surely nab the demo though.

  • Learii

    • maybe next year of summer.

      • Learii

    • Christ

      just play it in japanese, and then play it again in english. that’s what i do all the time. even if i don’t understand i’m not 100% spoiled this way, and actually i don’t care about spoilers. i care most about the gameplay. I CAN’T WAIT, NEXT WEEK, COME FASTER

  • yes i cant wait for this demo am dying!!

  • wow check this out for those who will import this like myself as alwaysl

    check the benifit of the demo.

    Square Enix has announced an availability date for the free Final Fantasy Type-0 demo that was first revealed in Famitsu this week. You’ll get to try out the game’s “Natsubi” sampler on August 11. The demo will be released via PlayStation Store and the game’s official site.
    Those who play the demo will unlock special summer clothing for the game’s characters. This can be carried over into the final version.

    picture of these summer costume. link of artcle and picture.

    • Yu_TheKing

      Thanks for the link. Rem looks adorable and Ace seems surprisingly muscular. 

  • I hope this comes to the ‘states as a PSP Remaster game on the PSN. So people will actually play it. On their PS3s. It looks…interesting. I’d check it out, even though it kinda just wreaks of, “Let’s slap the Final Fantasy name on a Monster Hunter clone!” if you  ask me. Love to be proven wrong though! :)

    • Seriously, why compare every game to Monster Hunter? Type-0 isnt even a Monster Hunter type of game, its a real time action rpg with missions, multi playable characters, world map and story.
      MH is about hunting huge monsters and using them as armors and weapons.
      Two different games, if you gonna compare Type-0, at least say its look like Crisis Core or Kingdom Hearts.

  • SolNeko


  • man many cool games comin out in october final fantasy,ultimate ninja impact etc

  • sandra10

    And so will my body. ;)

    That actually sounds dirty now that I think about it…

    • Yu_TheKing

      >owo< I'm not gonna touch that with a ten foot pole.

  • i guess its time to update all those CFW PSPs :P

  • Yu_TheKing

    Awesomeness at its peak. Still waiting for a NA release announce though >:U

  • great !! so, it will be easy to get the demo? or it’s just for psn japan?

    • Yu_TheKing

      You’d just have to use their website or another PSP demo hosting site, that is, if you don’t have a japanese psn account

  • AzureNova

    Sweet, time to get the PSP out again.

  • this is gonna rock

  • PrinceHeir

    hope to see new features in this demo ^^

  • after such a long wait, its quite nice of them to give us a free taste of it two months in advance of the official release (and two years in advance of the western release *trollface*)

  • YES YES YES! Now I must wait until its announced in America,

  • dragoon_slayer12

    Hopefully the demo releases in the us sooner rather than later.

    • HausofJuanito

      its not coming to the US this game wasnt even properly announced in NA/EU

      • Type-0 is trademarked in the USA, as are the possible sequels, if I recall correctly.  It might be a while but I’m sure we’ll get it.

  • Even though they haven’t “offically” announced this in NA has anyone known SquareEnix to not bring over a Final Fantasy game? I know there are a good number of them but SE isn’t shy about bringing something state side.

  • im so downloading this. but my japanese is rusty as hell.
