Final Fantasy Agito XIII Is Now Final Fantasy Type-0 [Update]



When we discovered a trademark for Final Fantasy Type-0, we were expecting a new game. What it really is, is Final Fantasy Agito XIII on the PSP with a new name. And it’s coming soon…Summer 2011, to be precise.


Final Fantasy Type-0 will come on 2 UMDs. The game will have over 30 voiced characters, for whom Square Enix are recording dialogue. “Big name” voice actors will be employed for the roles. Director Hajime Tabata says Final Fantasy Type-0 will have a new system, a single player game with multiplayer features built with to create an original play style.


The game isn’t related to Final Fantasy XIII any more, and Square Enix hope to spin it off into its own series. This is probably why they also trademarked Final Fantasy Type-1, Type-2, And Type-3.


[Update: Game trailer now included in post.]
