E3 2014: Is Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Further into Production Than We Think?

Before or after The Last Guardian?
The legend of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD's localisation stretches as far back as the Japanese release, following the rumours that it had been fully translated and dubbed. Two years later, with the announcement of the PlayStation 4 remake of the PlayStation Portable exclusive, it turns out that they were true. Since the big reveal, voice actor Orion Acaba spoke on his Facebook page about how it had been two years since he finished recording for his role. He wasn't the only one to speak up either.
So, how does that affect those eagerly awaiting the title's release? The lengthy translation of the gigantic PSP title could easily cut a few months off the project. It would also mean that there would be less work once development is completed, as all of the casting and voice direction of the massive main cast would be complete. This doesn't mean that we will see the game any time soon, however – especially considering Square Enix is known for taking its time. In a recent interview with Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX's co-director Tai Yasue, he explained the difficulties of creating remakes for newer consoles. How long do you think that this re-release will take? Place your bets in the comments section below.
