It was once known as Final Fantasy Agito XIII but it has since been renamed Final Fantasy Type-0 .

No matter what you call it, it's the new portable project from The 3rd Birthday director Hajime Tabata, and it holds a ton of promise. Thanks to Japanese publication Jump and a summary at Siliconera , we now have new details:

Specifically, we learn a bit more about two of the game's characters, Ace and Queen. Ace attacks with cards (weird, but okay) and Queen (the girl in the picture here) nails enemies with cool combos and "unspecified special techniques."
