As you could probably tell from the game’s trailer, Final Fantasy Type-0 has a rather heavy focus on what seems to be a war. This is the result of an invasion by the Milites empire who invade the city of Rubrum in Suzaku.
Milites is a highly technologically-developed empire, while Rubrum appears to be more of a magically-dependant one. At the centre of Rubrum’s magic is the Peristylium Suzaku, which contains a crystal within it. Milites have managed to develop a weapon that renders this crystal powerless and puts Rubrum’s forces at a great disadvantage.
The Peristylium Suzaku also serves as a magic training academy, which the main cast of Final Fantasy Type-0 attend. There are twelve of these characters, each of them specializing in their own weapon, which you’ve probably guessed from the image above. In addition to these twelve are protagonists, Machina and Rem, who we mentioned in a previous report that also explains the game’s battles and multiplayer aspect.
The image above isn’t the only screenshot Square Enix have released of Type-0’s main cast. Back when the game was called Final Fantasy Agito XIII, we were treated to a similar shot of the Peristylium Suzaku students, dressed in robes:
Final Fantasy Type-0 is slated for a release this Summer on the PSP in Japan. While we don’t have a release date yet, we do know the come will come on two UMDs.
