Okay, this, I didn't see coming.
As announced over at the PlayStation Blog , Square Enix will finally release Final Fantasy Type-0 in the US and Europe. The game originally launched on the PSP in Japan in 2011, but has never visited any other territory.
Obviously, the PS4 iteration will be significantly upgraded, which will undoubtedly please fans of the franchise. On top of which, the spin-off Final Fantasy Agito is headed to Android and iOS platforms; Agito hit Japan last month and both games in question are set in the Fabula Nova Crystallis universe, the home of the Final Fantasy XIII story arc. Said Square Enix product manager Sakura Minamida:
"I’d like to start this out by thanking everyone who let us know how badly you wanted this game to come to North America. Ever since the original PlayStation Portable release in Japan, you guys have never given up on it, raising your voices in an effort to see this title come to North America and Europe."
Well, that's good news. It's not the FF I'd want to see redone on the PS4 but hey, at least it keeps happening. We got Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster this year and now we're getting an HD version of Type-0 …what might be next? Dare we hope…?
