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.
