The lights are on
Originally unveiled as the mobile title Final Fantasy Agito XIII (before its name change), Final Fantasy Type-0 only saw release in Japan when it was finished in 2011. Despite pleas from series fans, Square Enix never brought the game to the U.S. – probably due to the PSP's flagging support. Now, this unconventional entry gets a second chance to find an audience.
In a press release, Square Enix has announced that an HD version of Final Fantasy Type-0 is on the way for new-gen consoles. The PlayStation Blog initially reported that the game was coming to Vita, but has since posted a correction retracting that statement. No release date was specified.
Though the possibility of the game coming to the handheld seems strong (especially considering its PSP origins), we can only count on getting to play this adventure on PS4 and Xbox One for the moment.
Our TakeI was never surprised that Square Enix held Type-0 back from a North American release, but it always disappointed me. I've read and heard some exciting things about this installment, so I'm looking forward to the chance to play it for myself.
