After confirming that Final Fantasy Type-0 is coming to next-gen consoles, fans had just one question: "When?"

Well, we don't yet have an exact date, but Square Enix did tell Joystiq during a hands-off demo at PAX Prime that it'll arrive "within the next year."

The high-def port of the PSP game that only released in Japan is a "speedy, action-oriented" spin on the franchise formula. I find that amusing because as far as I can tell, "speedy and action-oriented" is no spin at all; it's just the way things are now. Anyway, the game features 14 playable characters, real-time combat, and a "more mature tone." Western gamers can also expect four difficulty modes, which is good, because Japanese gamers found it quite difficult.

Eh, just give me Kingdom Hearts III .

Seems like they would give us everything except for what the fans truly want, like Kingdom Hearts 3, FF VII remake, etc.

Stop the FFVII remake talk now… However Xenoblade Chronicles on the 3Ds is an utter treat, I reckon I will have to give into a 3DS now, it was the best game inplayed this gena and to have that portable would just be amazing 😀

I don't think so, Vivi. I won't stop until a FF VII remake happens. Deal with it.

I'm sure they'd make that plat impossible. If it adds a Tifa marriage ending I'm in.

I won't get the plat if it makes me do a bunch of lame chocobo racing.

I have wanted Type-0 since it was first announced years ago. I sure as hell wanted it more than 2 more XIII games. =S

i always trained my chocobos with greens so it would be impossible for them to lose, then run races while watching a movie or something.

Kingdom Hearts III probably has 3-4 more years to go at least. This will come first.

I'll get it if it's good, hell maybe the action stuff works this time. These guys sure are slow on ports though.

Strangely I was at Walmart and saw a FFXV video playing on the Playstation kiosk, at the end it still called itself "part of the VERSUS saga" I'm not sure if saga was the was the exact word but saga, world, universe, you get the point. Get ready for more wacky sequels in this Versus world.

If it went from Versus XIII to XV Versus, then what is it Versus to now? Just put out a game that doesn't suck!

Haha, interesting hey state this is a speedy process, yes no doubt due to the fan translation they completely trampled on. I still don't believe they had any intention in releasing Type-0 out of japan prior. The announcement was half-arsed too, slapped on at the end if a trailer with no indication if actual development, sloppy S-E.

I learned not to care anymore for anything SE related. after waiting years (and prolly many more years to come) for versus 13 (now 15) and kh3, im just tired of their lack of respect to the fans.

I'm interested in this. I remember getting really excited about the concept when it was first announced as Agito XIII, and then the silence, and then the transformation into Type-0, and then the non-translation on the PSP, and now it's coming to PS4, and getting a Western release (and reportedly retail) at the same time. I know a lot of people here are really down on S-E, and I understand why given the esteem that many of the PSXE members held them in in years past, but they do still make decent games.
I hold Lightning Returns (and the whole XIII saga) in higher regard than many on here seem to, and Dissidia and The Third Birthday were pretty great too. I'm also looking forward to KHIII and FFXV (and the new Sleeping Dogs, but that's not S-E proper), so the company is still capable of goodness, in my opinion.

Anyway, long story short, this is on my PS4 purchase list (if I ever get around to getting a PS4 :/).
