    Rub it in our faces won’t ya SE?

    Unless this is a sign it’s coming, which I doubt, curse you, SE.

    • DemonicX

      A while back they stated that they were working on a US version, but just never confirmed any release date.

      • MrRobbyM

        I heard. But that’s the thing, a while back. It’s been a long while since we’ve heard anything and with the state of the PSP in the US, I assumed the localization was canceled.

        • They can rely on the VITA, because well, the Vita really needs help with more games atm :S

          • MrRobbyM

            That’s really the only likely chance the game has at being localized and even that is being a bit optimistic.

          •  Well, we’ll have the FF 25th Anniversary event to look out for…! Not that I have any hopes whatsoever of seeing that game featured in the Western event, but oh well.

        • LightZero

          I could easily see it coming to the 3DS given how popular it is compared to the Vita. Sure the Vita is possible too but that system is doing pretty badly at the moment. 

          • MrRobbyM

            I don’t think they would port it to a different system just to localize it. Unless they plan on doing the same for Japan and then adding stuff that wasn’t in the original game, then I doubt that.

          • LightZero

            It’s simple they can do a Type 0 International as well know SE is shy about doing those. They can re-release it for the 3DS with some extra content. Either way it’s going to be on a different system. The PSP is pretty much dead in the west. Right now the 3DS is the money maker. Business wise it would be the wiser decision. 

          • MrRobbyM

            @LightZero:disqus Pretty much what I had in mind.

      • Srsly do people still use this “point.” It was obviously a lie. That or just hopefulness. Plus that has been close to a full goddamn year now. There hasn’t been an ounce of “news” about its localization since that false statement.

        •  Supposedly voicework is complete.  Take it with a grain of salt.

          • Yah… that too was several months ago. If it were complete they would release it because voice acting isn’t free and to put so much money in just to say nah we won’t sale it would be incredibly stupid.

  • Jesse Thompson

    SE hates their customers, why else would they be price-gouging them for the DLC songs.  Do the math on how much the game plus ALL the DLC comes out to be (with the future releases planned)…

    • Jesse Thompson

      Got bored enough to figure it all out.  Apparently it price dropped from $39.99 to $29.99 already.  Pretty fast huh?  As usual with Nintendo, us “first-in” people got the shaft.  At any rate, there are currently 32 DLC songs going for $0.99 per, with 12 more added by the end of Sept.  So if you want all the DLC you’re paying premium rate for a gimmicky 3DS game, not much of a story either.  Grand total by the end of September = $73.55 w/o tax.  Grand total as of today = $61.67.  At this point and further, all the DLC actually costs more than the game itself…

      Let’s face it, we’re suckers for Final Fantasy and our nostalgia factor, but there’s a point when it just becomes painfully obvious that SE is farming that cash cow hard.

      I haven’t really LOVED a FF game since probably FFX, and that one I still wouldn’t say is my absolute favorite.  To each their own, but meh…FF has really lost it’s luster for me.  Just take a look at my profile photo and you’ll get it. :)

      • First-party Nintendo games don’t drop in price for nearly all of eternity, so perhaps you’re referring to get shafted by retailers (not Nintendo) dropping the price of Theathrythm, a Square-Enix game, after a certain time period?  I think it should still be pointed out that you don’t have to purchase the entirety of the DLC catalog if you don’t want to.

        • Jesse Thompson

          Sure, I don’t have to do anything, but my point remains that these songs should not be as over-priced as they are.  And I am indeed speaking with my wallet to SE.  You’ve got me on my mistaken ire about the price drop itself, but still…it dropped very quickly.

          My unspoken point, which MrRobbyM pointed out, was that all of this DLC could have been released with the game itself.  This was merely a pre-planned cash-in by SE.

    • KHSoraKeyBlade

       How is this any different from what happened to both Rockband and the Hero series?
      You don’t have to buy every song they offer for dlc. They are merely offering songs that could not be put on the game card to begin with. I myself have bought around 7 or 8 songs and it doesn’t bother me. At the end of the day they are just additional songs to make the game have some even more replay value (even though the Dark Notes in the game keep me playing for ages as it is).

      Basically, if you don’t like it don’t buy it.

      • MrRobbyM

        I agree with you but “They are merely offering songs that could not be put on the game card to begin with”. Ohohohoho. No. Most DLC, especially with how SE has been working as of late, is just another way of getting money. I’m sure they could have fit a bunch of more content.

        • Jesse Thompson

          Yeah MrRobbyM, that was kind of my point…the majority, if not all, of these songs could have been released with the game itself.  This was all planned from the very beginning to get more money out of the game.

        • Syltique

          Actually, I heard they packed the 3DS cart to capacity.  

          • MrRobbyM

            I highly doubt that’s true. It’s a pretty basic rhythm game.

          • thundergodCN

            But the cut scenes themselves take up a huge portion. So that alone could be why. 

          • Either it wasn’t the biggest cart or it is a lie.

        • KHSoraKeyBlade

           I was under the impression that the 3DS card was packed as much as they could because that was said by the director of the game.
          They did say though they would release dlc from the beginning because there was far too many songs they couldn’t add to the game. I mean there is like what 50 songs or something on the game any ways right? I have no idea to be honest.

  • No No


  • Zonic505

    Man, I really wish they’d put some of the remixes from Dissidia as DLC.

    Anyways, think I’ll get The Extreme & Fight 2 this month.

    & if anyone’s wondering, the Ragnarok theme is from FF11, Force Your Way from FF8, Matoya’s Cave is from FF1, & Tower of Mage’s (or Magician’s Tower) is from FF2.

    • Syltique

      Seriously, the Dissidia remixes are just superior.  I hope for Theatrhythm 2, they fully remix the entire game’s music.

      • CrimsonalCore

        I think the DLC will handle that. It doesn’t make sense to release Theatrhythm 2 when this is 25th Anniversary. But then again, it’s Square-Enix so it’s up to them.

  • Farid Belkacemi

    So Type-0 is coming… Like Versus XIII ? :D

    • No.

      • Farid Belkacemi

        No sense of humour ? *.*

        • Not a very a good one I will admit. Sorry.

  • Syltique

    Man, who picked that song?  It’s one of the least interesting songs on the Type-0 OST.  I could think of like …. 40 Type-0 songs I would pick before that.

  • kevinposta

    “What becomes of us”
    Funny because that’s pretty much what I’m asking myself about the game.

  • September 20th:
    Force your way (FFVII)
    Ragnarok (FFXI)
    Matoya’s Cave (FF)
    Tower of Mages (FFII)

    • Internet is Crash

      Force your way is FFVIII which is probably the only dlc song i want out of that list :))

  • With this Type 0 has some form of Westernization I suppose.  It’s kinda odd how they love keeping us in the dark about Versus and Type 0.  Aside from the vague “Give me your money” statements.

  • Where’s my Castle Pandemonium?

    • It’s coming. They already made an orchestrated version for one of those FF OST collections so I’m sure it will appear in the DLC list eventually.

  • Lazulis

    …I wonder if people will actually buy that Type-0 song…it hasn’t had that much exposure to the US, and starting Type-0’s exposure this way is kinda…

    • Sebastian Lothian

      Bought it.

  • GaiunxWolfenX

    where is you are not alone??? T.T

  • “The Extreme”, “Force Your Way”.
    People can say what ever they want about FFVIII’s gameplay, but they can’t argue that the person who named the songs chose the coolest names he could come up with!
