E3 2014: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Regales Its Tale on PS4

Posted by Sammy Barker

Here we Agito again

Final Fantasy Type-0 has been the source of Western JRPG fans’ desires ever since it released in Japan almost three years ago, culminating in the creation of a very public unofficial translation. Alas, it appears that publisher Square Enix has heard your pleas for the legendary PlayStation Portable release, as an upgraded version of the classic has been announced for the PlayStation 4 and Vita at E3 today.

"I’d like to start this out by thanking everyone who let us know how badly you wanted this game,” senior manager Sakura Minamida wrote on the PlayStation Blog. “Ever since the original PSP 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, I’m here to tell you that it’s coming and it’s going to be in HD.”

There’s no word on a release date or a price point just yet, but we suspect that the mere confirmation should be enough to send a smile across your sleepy chops. For those out of the loop, this is widely regarded as one of the better Final Fantasy titles in recent times, adopting a gameplay system similar to fellow PSP favourite Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII. Are you one of those people that’s been patiently waiting for this game? Show no Strife in the comments section below.

Update: The PlayStation Blog has updated its original article, stating that Final Fantasy Type-0 is not coming to the Vita, after all. It's still definitely coming to the PS4, though. We think...

I'd play the hell out of this on PS4.

EDIT: So no Vita version? This seems insane. Square Enix can't even get their blog posts right!

Just a quick update on this story: the PlayStation Blog originally listed this for the Vita, but it's since updated its article stating that it's only for PS4.

How is it not coming to Vita...? This is personally the best AND worst news of E3 so far.

I'm quite distressed at the decline of the Final Fantasy series and the amount of time and lack of detail SquareEnix put out there. In my opinion it was better as just squaresoft. I have dumped so many hours into the different iterations over the years. 7 is still my all time favourite followed by 12. Why can't these be brought to ps4 :(

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D I'm sorry you can't help but laugh at a handheld exclusive making its western debut on PS4 and Xbox One. No PSP or PS Vita. Oh Square Enix i love your f*** you messages, Why would PS4 and Xbox One fans be asking for this? A HD remaster of a handheld game.

You may wanna change the title at some point. It's pretty disappointing for whoever gets his hopes up only to be crushed in seconds.

I love to use my Vita as a "continue my game on the go" handheld where I can play games on the PS4 and continue them on the Vita through cross-save. This being a portable game, they are missing out on a key feature of the Playstation ecosystem by not bringing it to the Vita too.

That was an amazing troll by SE! Vita owners were breaking down in tears on the PS Blog, and then oh, sorry, PS4 not Vita! Where's that gif of Dwayne Johnson applauding when I need it?

I don't really get how the whole remote play thing works since I only have a VITA and a PS3 and remote play sucks on the latter, but wouldn't it be possible to play this on VITA via remote play? Obviously is not the same as a VITA release, but still...

Missed this yesterday. To be fair I missed everything non-Nintendo related yesterday. Was like when I was a teenager seeing Mario 64 for the first time as everything they showed excited me so much. Anyway, the missus loves this game and bangs on about more than I do about Hatsune Miku so guess her birthday/Christmas present is sorted whenever this is out.
