Final Fantasy Agito also coming to western smartphones.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD

Square Enix announced Final Fantasy Type-0 HD for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at E3 in Los Angeles today.

“The voice of our Western fans was instrumental in the development of Final Fantasy Type-0, and we’re very excited to release this title soon,” said Hajime Tabata, director of Final Fantasy Type-0. “The new PlayStation 4 system and Xbox One gaming and entertainment platform have really helped to re-envision this dynamic and turbulent world of Orience.”

Additionally, Final Fantasy Agito is coming to western smartphones as a free-to-download application. Find details below.

The war-torn land of Orience is also the setting for Final Fantasy Agito, where players on iOS and Android mobile devices take on the role of a cadet in the Dominion of Rubrum as they aim to become Agito, a prophesized savior of Orience. Some key features for Final Fantasy Agito include:

  • Character Customization: Create a unique character in the world of Final Fantasy Agito. Players have access to a variety of character customization options, including gender, facial features, hairstyles and more.
  • Player Choice: Interact with other cadets at Akademeia, including key characters from Final Fantasy Type-0. The decisions players make at the Akademeia will affect the course of history in the game, which in turn will affect the worldwide player community.
  • Missions: Players can head out on missions to raise their level, and find/craft their ultimate weapon. Players can also confront powerful enemies in large-scale, cooperative battles involving the entire Final Fantasy Agito player population.

Watch a trailer for Final Fantasy Agito below.

Note: A previous version of this post said Final Fantasy Type-0 HD was also coming to PS Vita. This was an error on the PlayStation Blog‘s part.

    LMFAO!!! SQUARE WITH THE BEST SURPRISE ANNOUNCEMENT.

  • Teh_Akod

    And its also coming to Vita.

  • Ghost Doge

    Calling @mrfinalgamer:disqus.

    • MrFinalgamer

      YOU DAMN RIGHT DAWG!!!

    • Samsara09

      Yeah,so did I!Our victory!

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      It baffles me that they don’t mention this in their press release.

      • Takane Shijou

        I thought they made it rather apparent how they feel about the Vita last night.

        • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

          They usually focus more on Vita at other game shows. It makes sense when you think about it.

          It’s important to remember, the press events at e3 are also for the shareholders and investors. Which is why we usually get a bit of other stuff mixed into the events. (Usually boring.)

          I hate to say, but the shareholders and stuff are mostly interested in what Sony is doing on PS4.

          • Takane Shijou

            Which is why they won’t make the mistake of calling it Vita TV and went with Playstation TV. The decision makes sense to me, but it still stings a bit.

            • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

              Yeah, I understand.

      • Samsara09

        Probably because it was everyone’s dream to see it on vita.

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        Even after all this coverage, you still find time to change your avatar after all this time, haha. Impressive :p

        • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

          I did it yesterday. =P

          I realized my other picture was like a year old.

          Plus, I was at a hall party on Sunday, and was just like, ‘you know what, I’m suave.’

      • DarthBrian

        They only say it’s coming to VIta in the Blog. The press release only mentions PS4 and Xbone. There’s some shady shit going down here IMO.

        • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

          Some community manager is definitely messing with Vita owners right now. xD

      • Zackasaur

        Meanwhile, the PS Blog press release ONLY mentions the Vita version.

        This is getting people pretty confused!

        Pre-ordering immediately for both Vita and PS4. <3

  • pixxxelz

    BELIEVE~ XD

  • talesoffan

    Needs a PS3 release as well.

  • Karysonson

    HOLY CRAP! THANK YOU!!!

  • Samsara09

    Everyone,I have a suggestion.BUY THE VITA VERSION.
    With the PS vita tv,the big screen is ours.We should give some boost to the vita,in order to get more games to it,especially rpgs.We have Tales of Hearts R,Persona 4 Golden,and now this.

    EDIT-Forget it.This game is PS4 and XBONE only,it seems.

    • DarthBrian

      Yeah, I agree. Give Vita some love. Jeez. >_<

    • Wolf Star

      Fuck that I’m buying both!! PS4 and Ps Vita!! Double dipping!! :)

      • Samsara09

        THAT IS MY BOY/GIRL!Let’s rock this party!

      • pixxxelz

        Same here any word on cross play/save though?

        • Samsara09

          X/X-2 had it,so…

        • Wolf Star

          I just found out it’s PS4 and Xbone only :( oh well getting for Ps4 then :)

    • Zackasaur

      I am DEFINITELY buying this for both Vita and PS4. c:

      But I’m playing it first on Vita without a doubt.

      • Samsara09

        There is the vita TV,buddy!

        • Anime10121

          PS4’ll likely have improved graphics

          • Samsara09

            Screw graphics.I am gonna have my shining vita rpg collection…persona 4 golden,final fantasy Type 0,Tales of Hearts R,(maybe) Tales of Innocence R,(Maybe) tales of the tempest R(This game is the last remake)

            • Anime10121

              Welp I prefer more PS4 titles (as I already have plenty Vita ones), I may buy it on both though…

              • Samsara09

                This is pointless.PS4 only.So,back to square one,lol.

                • Anime10121

                  Yep XD

                  Preordering day one when Amazon updates :D

                  • Samsara09

                    Square one to my shining collection I mean.

                    Honestly,I am now doubting if I am gonna buy a vita for Hearts R.Square looks afraid of getting in the boat…and there aren’t many rpgs…

                    I am gonna wait a bit more.

    • Ping92

      SE tricked us vita owners!

      • Samsara09

        It did!But I think that was a communication mistake.

  • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

    I’m Crying Right Now!!!!!!!

  • Kuro-Law

    PS Vita!!!!! YHHHHHHHHHH

  • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

    Hate & Love Relationship With SE Is Getting Out Of Control. One Moment I Hate Them and The Next I Love Them.

  • Samsara09

    This is our victory,fellow fans!Now,let us savor it!

  • Kuro-Law

    Release date?

    • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

      2054

      • Kuro-Law

        Should have seen that coming.

  • DarthBrian

    OMG! YES! COMING TO VITA!!! :O

    Oh, also coming to PS4 and Xbone?

    Why? o_O

    • Six

      Because those platforms are selling and the Vita is not.

      • DarthBrian

        Well, maybe a game like this that’s on Vita and nothing the fuck else will help sell the motherfucker. >_<

      • Zackasaur

        The Vita is still significantly ahead of the Xbone in sales. :P

        The PS4 has about caught up to it.

        The Vita has the highest attach rate (most games sold per system owner) by far, though.

        • DarthBrian

          Excellent point, fine sir!

    • Luna Kazemaru

      i’m more shocked its comin to xbone lol

      • DarthBrian

        Yeah, I’m legit shocked at that too. Either moneyhatted or Square-Enix thinks people who own Xbones have any interest in this game whatsoever. Not sure why they’re spending so much money to localize 3 versions. Should only localize the Vita version. Idiots.

        • new_tradition

          The Xbone version is more or less going to be the “why the hell not” version like KH3. They’re putting it on there just because. If it means more money for SE, than great.

        • Luna Kazemaru

          or they just don’t want to commit to hard and hoping for extra cash

        • Six

          I can’t imagine any scenario where Microsoft paid money to get this on their platform.

          Final Fantasy XIII didn’t do that poorly on 360, and with XV coming to the Bone, this doesn’t seem that far-fetched.

          • Elvick

            XIII had 360 exclusive advertising in NA. Yet PS3 still sold better. And the drop off was far more massive on 360 for XIII-2 and LR.

            If SE would just advertise to the audience that by default cares more, they’d do even better.

            • Six

              The Final Fantasy audience is on Playstation. It’ll sell better there no matter what, so why not try to use some advertising to build up an audience on another platform as well?

              It’s a win-win.

              • MrFinalgamer

                Rather a win-win-lose
                Fucking square not supporting the Vita >_<

        • MrFinalgamer

          Well…this game is set in a war, and the xbone is associated with FPS war games, and it’s an action RPG, so I think this, and FFXV will do great on the Xbone =/

          • DarthBrian

            Dunno about ‘great’. >_>

            • MrFinalgamer

              Definitely better than FFXIII, that at least I can be sure off.

        • ghost_wolves

          I’ll be getting this on the One along with lots of other great titles (Ori, Cuphead, etc.). Please stop stereotyping people based on what console they prefer to play games on.

  • new_tradition

    What I wanna know is if there will be a significant difference between the Vita and console versions, possible cross-buy promo so that I could enjoy the PS4 version if I want to later, and of course, release dates *_*

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      Have to wait for trailers and game footage I suppose.

    • Zackasaur

      Don’t expect cross-buy.

      I am definitely buying for both Vita and PS4. If I had to pick only one, it would be Vita.

      But this deserves maximum support.

      • new_tradition

        I guess…Vita is my preferred choice here too. I did say this was gonna be one of the games to make me get a Vita, so again, just need a release date and I’ll start saving up ^^

  • PhoenixAutomatic~♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪~

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I’m dying of happiness.

  • MrFinalgamer

    Awesome to see this localized, but they’re basically dooming the Vita version, when putting it on consoles too =P

    • LustEnvy

      Not true. If FFX-HD is any indication, people love their FFs on the go as well.

      • MrFinalgamer

        …in Japan. Over here the Vita version was outsold, like 7:1 (or 6, not sure)

        • Elvick

          Pretty sure we have never seen full sales figures. ie; digital and physical

          • MrFinalgamer

            WELP!! It doesn’t even matter now, it ain’t comming to Vita =P

    • Samsara09

      not necessarily.THERE IS THE VITA TV,
      Also,supporting the vita version is smarter.But yeah,people will buy it more for the PS4.

      • GetOffMy_Lawn

        But people aren’t going to buy a vita, memory card, Playstation TV, and the game when they get just the game and a PS4. Honestly, the PS4 is probably a better investment seeing as how Sony straight up ignored the Vita last night in terms of software.

        • Samsara09

          Screw this.the game is not coming to the vita.Just to pS4,XBONE.
          Oh well,my plans were dashed.Good for me,that just means I will spare some money.

    • rurifan

      One would hope it would be a cross-buy ….

  • Six

    Day one on Vita out of principle.

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

    I wonder if they will actually use the fan translation to help speed up the process for localization though. They can probably just pay the team some kind of fee for their work and sign a contract stating they won’t be credited in the game for it, but yeah… XSEED did it with Ys before, so anything is possible.

    It certainly wouldn’t surprise me if they went this route anyway.

    • GetOffMy_Lawn

      I wish they would. I feel bad for that team that literally JUST finished that fan translation, like, yesterday, and now this is announced.

      • new_tradition

        I’d like to think they did it so they can get SE to show their hand. I feel liked it worked xD

      • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

        Maybe if they were *faster* with their patch…

    • MrFinalgamer

      I believe the game already has english voice acting (someone on Gaf confirmed), so they probably already have the game translated.

      Still, dick move from the translator by releasing it, before E3.

      • bero

        How is it a dick move? SE showed no interest in localizing it so some fans did it for them.

        • MrFinalgamer

          There were numerous teases by Square France about a localization happening, not to mention Tabata said last year how they were in the final stages of consideration.

          • bero

            Teasing doesn’t mean shit until an announcement is made. For all we know they could have decided to not release it.

            • MrFinalgamer

              Type-0 was never teased, until that point. To randomly start teasing it means SOMETHING is coming.

              And again, Tabata said it was coming.

    • Anime10121

      Well if rumors were correct, the translations been done for years…

  • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

    Getting it on PS4 & PS Vita

  • HighBrowDrifter
  • TheExile285

    This made my day.

  • TreizeX

    It’s funny how the English patch came out two days ago

    • Samsara09

      and now SE just got half the work done for them!

      • GetOffMy_Lawn

        Plus, there’s already english voice acting apparently on the PSP version…

        • rurifan

          Where did that come from?

          • GetOffMy_Lawn

            They had started a localization on the game, and apparently they recorded voice overs in English before it got canned. I don’t have a source for this though, so I could very well be wrong. I just remember reading that.

    • Zackasaur

      I downloaded that, but I’m definitely waiting for the legit version, now. c:

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Awesome news!

  • Zackasaur

    OMFG I AM FREAKING OUT AT WORK. SPINNING IN MY CHAIR.

    AND I DO ACADEMIC RESEARCH AT A UNIVERSITY. THEY MUST THINK I JUST DID SOMETHING AWESOME.

    GOD DAMN IT.

        • GetOffMy_Lawn

          Good point, I always forget about that!

    • Anime10121

      Agreed! XV has been “coming soon” since 2008 :/
      I need definitive terms Square :/

      • Samsara09

        probably 2015.After all this,I can wait a year or two!

        • Six

          Late 2015 for Japan, March 2016 for US and EU. Calling it now.

          • Samsara09

            Yeah.Well,after this,I can feel my devotion,patience and strength increasing a thousand fold!
            hell,I wouldn’t mind waiting a year or two for this!

          • Anime10121

            Thats a SE time frame for ya XD

  • Elvick

    Day 1 for Vita and PS4.

  • Zackasaur

    SQUARE ENIX WINS E3.

  • http://ryuz4ki57inenglish.wordpress.com/ Thomas FROEHLICHER

    HERE’S 500€ GIVE ME PS4+VITA VERSION!

    • http://ryuz4ki57inenglish.wordpress.com/ Thomas FROEHLICHER

      oh sh** seems the Vita version was a mistake… TAKE THE 500€ ANYWAY!

  • EX+

    I look like a right bell end. Here I was wondering why the hell SE was bothering with E3. bow down to your master.

  • TheExile285
    • Ping92

      oh shit…

    • futuristic_imagination

      argh… looks like I will have to save some money for a PS4 and Type-0.

  • DarthBrian

    They just updated the Blog post. It’s now NOT coming to Vita! WTF? >__<

    • new_tradition

      WHAT THE HELL?! D:<

    • GetOffMy_Lawn

      I figured something was up with conflicting reports. Well, at least we’re still getting the game!

    • KingNigma
    • Samsara09

      Screw them!Oh well,PS4 is it?Great,I will have to buy it sooner than I expected

    • Anime10121

      ROFL u have GOT to be fukn me?!

      • Samsara09

        Man,this is probably a mistake.I doubt they would screw us like this!
        Looks like it isn’t.*Facepalm

        • Anime10121

          Well technically, this is the PSBlogs fault, since the Press Release only mentions PS4/one

          • Samsara09

            Yeah.Well,this is still our victory!
            This means Square is gonna SWARM the PS4.I am giggly….

    • Elvick

      /wrists

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Pretty stupid considering it was originally on a handheld, lol.

      • Samsara09

        we are still getting it.Half a victory.But goddamn it…

  • Luna Kazemaru

    Lol nice job there…

  • Lara Croft
    • $61526767

      Mhmmm… Dammit, gotta get that Ps4! Type 0! :D FINALLY WE GET TO PLAY IT!! HYPE!

    • GetOffMy_Lawn

      When I read the first tweet I honestly thought some troll had hacked the account. So if this is the only correction we’re getting, I’d say we’re still pretty lucky.

      • Samsara09

        better than nothing.Gotta accept it.

    • Samsara09

      Fuck.Now I have to get a PS4 sooner than I planned.Hmmm….Type 0 and XV,both for PS4?This is good.Seems like Square is gonna swarm the console,lol.

      • futuristic_imagination

        Now we have to wait for a release date…. hopefully its enough time to save money and get a PS4/Type-0.

        • Surgeon of Death

          will probably be this year to fill the ff15 lack this year

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            Er… Lack of FF this year? NA got the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD remaster and JP got Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call with NA and EU getting it later this year. Just because FFXV hasn’t released yet doesn’t mean there’s a lack of FF :p

            • Surgeon of Death

              took you a while to type that. I forgot about x hd lol. Curtain call well…..

  • Six

    wait what

  • bero

    These fuckin cunts! It’s not coming to vita.

  • MrKappa

    Not gonna coming to the Vita huh? Well they’re gonna have to do a lot of work to make this worthy of being a PS4 title.

    • Nesther

      They’re going to upscale it to 1080p, add trophies and call it a day.

      • Zackasaur

        They’re going to do a loooot more than that. At a minimum, you’ll see new controls, 1080p, 60fps, layers of anti-aliasing, and trophies.

        In all likelihood, you’ll also see new lighting and improved textures. In fact, it’s even possible that they’ll add polygons and improve the models. They did that for both KH 1.5/2.5 HD and for FFX/X-2 HD.

        EDIT: I forgot to mention the higher quality audio.

        • bero

          That’s quite a dream.

          • Zackasaur

            It’s hardly a dream. It’s a realistic expectation based on all of SE Japan’s other HD remasters. They’ve done it on every one of them.

            • Anime10121

              Hope so, that’d be awesome!

        • rurifan

          Mmmm 60fps, I’ll take it!

          Some of the “PSP remasters” on PS3 ran at a horrible frame rate, it was quite painful. I tried Sora no Kiseki for 10 minutes and went back to it on PSV.

      • Anime10121

        Sounds bout right

  • Zackasaur

    Wait, the Vita announcement was a mistake? That’s fucking terrible.

    This is the most botched game announcement of all time.

  • Reda1234

    and here I though they were going to do something good for a while… fucking square enix, the vita should be the main platform.

  • GetOffMy_Lawn

    Does anyone know if this will effect Final Fantasy XV’s development at all? or vice versa?

    • Anime10121

      Tabata IS Co Director and this IS SE, so yeah, safe to say its affecting XV’s development :P

      I mean what DOESNT at SE :(

      • Samsara09

        For the sake of our sanity,let’s not go this way.Don’t think about it.

        • GetOffMy_Lawn

          He’s probably right though. Two Final Fantasy games being developed for a brand new console…. One will probably end up delaying the other. This is a PSP game being upgraded to a PS4 game. New development will be necessary, most likely. I would be worried if not.

          • Samsara09

            Even so,don’t think about it.it is not a matter of realism,because we have no really reliable data to follow with.

            • GetOffMy_Lawn

              Historical Precedent.

              • Samsara09

                all right.Oh well,I am not in a haste here.

        • Anime10121

          Just being realistic knowing my favorite dev…

    • Zackasaur

      No in the tiniest way, no.

    • new_tradition

      Seriously, A PSP to Vita game might have been a tweaked HD port, but surely a PSP to PS frickin’ 4 port has to some new development done to it. I wouldn’t be surprised :/

      • Zackasaur

        It wouldn’t affect FFXV at all, though.

        We’re looking at no resources being pulled from FFXV, since this would be done my a remaster crew… Much like how KH 1.5/2.5 took nothing away from FFXV/KHIII.

        • GetOffMy_Lawn

          But they won’t want to release them too close together. One would inevitably overshadow the other.

  • ConkerBFD

    NO, NOOO, NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! I don’t have enough money to buy so many games!!!!! GHWAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa………………….

  • Kuro-Law

    How does this even make sense. It came out on psp 1st. Wtf square?!?!?

  • shogunknight

    What the? Why no Vita?

  • EX+

    I have a feeling this was their plan.
    Reveal Type-0 HD and leave KH3 and FF15 out of E3 to avoid overshadowing of any kind and then reveal a gameplay trailer for FF15 and FFT0 with release windows and a story trailer for KH3 with some gameplay at TGS.

    • Samsara09

      yes,this was a smart plan.

    • Anime10121

      Well Hashimoto DID say it was a timing thing why they wouldnt be at E3…

  • Luna Kazemaru
    • Kuro-Law

      Exactly

    • Anime10121

      Perfect gif usage

  • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

    I’m guessing FF Type is becoming a franchise and this HD remake is the start for PS4 & Xbone. My guess is FF Type 1, 2, and so forth will becoming to PS4 & Xbone.

    • Anime10121

      It’d be a good way to reboot the franchise so the numerals dont get TOO large :P

      • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

        LOL!!!

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Wow. PS Blog failed it seems. Well, at least we are still getting the game. While it isn’t as good as an actual Vita version, you can at least remote play it on the Vita if you get it for PS4.

    Still, epic fail PS Blog. I can understand why folks are upset.

    • rurifan

      Honestly it seemed a little strange to port a game from PSP to PSV, since the PSV could already play it. (Nevermind cries of western fans left in the cold.)

      I like my PSV but I’m more excited for JRPGs on the PS4, so no disappointment here.

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        Actually, porting a game from PSP to Vita makes more sense than porting a game from PSP to PS4. Vita is essentially the PSP, just in HD, lol.

        • rurifan

          Sense in terms of expanding the market and selling more copies of the game.

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            Marketing has nothing to do with it. It was originally a handheld game, so it wouldn’t be weird at all if it was ported to Vita.

        • Budgiecat

          tell that to Nintendo lol

        • Articuno76

          IIRC architecturally the PSP/Vita are very similar so making a HD port that ran at a higher resolution wouldn’t have been that hard. Heck, many developers have been doing just that.

          And with FFX HD performing quite strongly on the Vita this decision to omit the system seems strange.

          I’d understand if no one cared. But almost everywhere you go on the internet the Vita version being conspicuous by absence is almost bigger than the localisation announcement itself.

    • DarthBrian

      The post was made by a SQUARE-ENIX employee!!!

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        I’m not sure exactly how that works. They might just email stuff to PS Blog to be posted under so and so name.

        Still, you would think before posting it the PS Blog or someone would have checked that.

      We believed for a Type-0 HD, and it happened, now we MUST believe for a Vita version!

      BELIEVE~

      • Samsara09

        Man,this is so freakin funny!We rallied our asses to get this game to the vita and they release it for PS4.

    • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

      Who is Shahid, and why is it related to this game?

      • Elvick

        He works for strategic content at SCEE.

        • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

          But the game is made by SE, and they get to decide what it’s released for. <_< So I don't see how blaming him makes a difference.

          • Elvick

            Blaming him is useless, but he can still work on publisher relations and try to get it to happen on Vita. He already admits he has been trying.

            Thus why I posted the tweet.

    • GetOffMy_Lawn

      WTF does he mean NOW?! Was this just some sorta experiment?!?!

      • Luna Kazemaru

        what he mean is that they will keep trying to make it happen for the vita

        • GetOffMy_Lawn

          Ah… this announcement seems so far out of left field and so poorly executed, I am a little paranoid…

    • DarthBrian

      What does GAF have to do with this? :p

      Are they so special? >_>

      • Zackasaur

        It’s just one of many metrics of demand.

    • new_tradition

      Please make it happen, dude. Type-0 was gonna be one of the killer apps to make me buy a Vita. I’m not gonna run out and buy a PS4 for Type-0 :/

      • Budgiecat

        But what if type-0 PS4/XB1 is being remade too powerful for da Vita??

        ..

        .

        (yeah right)

  • MrFinalgamer

    Tabata said this game was designed for handhelds, and that it would come as such! Why Square? WHY?????

    BTW, don’t know if it means much, but Shahid is working in trying to get a Vita release

    https://twitter.com/shahidkamal/status/476448551031943168

    • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

      No he’s not. He’s sitting on his fat ass and lying to people.

  • Luna Kazemaru

    everyone is blaming shahid now….really

    • Zackasaur

      Blaming him is dumb.

      He failed in the #1 request of his mission, yes… But it’s ultimately SE’s fault.

      If he can get a Vita version done, I’ll have to send him some fan mail in appreciation.

      • Samsara09

        if that guy is any good,we may get a vita version later.After all,all they need to do is copy paste the PS4 version.

        If this game doesn’t come to vita,then he can give up his project.

      • Elvick

        He didn’t fail, Tales was #1 and we are getting it.

        • Zackasaur

          In Tweets, yeah. Not in overall desire. lol FF fans were just more broken-spirited after all these years.

          But he’s definitely not a failure.

        • Budgiecat

          meanwhile, at Sega…

      • MrFinalgamer

        The number 1 game WAS Hearts R. And it’s coming over. Hopefully he can work something out for the Vita. Boy LOVES the Vita.

        • Samsara09

          well,Innocence was second,right?

          • MrFinalgamer

            Innocence is probably dependant on Hearts sales, not to metion Hearts IS not as old.

            A LOT of people were asking for Type-0 though. So it’s easier to bring this over.

            • Budgiecat

              I want Yakuza 5

        • Luna Kazemaru

          lol gaf is apparently calling him useless

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            Neogaf calls a lot of people useless though, lol.

            • Luna Kazemaru

              neogaf is a useless waste of space imo

              • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                Well, I wouldn’t go far as to say that. We’ve had leaks start from Neogaf. Every place has its evil though.

          • Samsara09

            they say trash like to call others trash.

        • Zackasaur

          In number of tweets, yeah. In overall demand, Type-0 was immensely far ahead of Hearts R.

          Organising more Twitter accounts isn’t really the only metric of hype they used. They’re far smarter than that. lol

  • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

    Welp At Least We Finally Get To Play It. Just Hope It Doesn’t Cause FF XV To Be Pushed Out Of 2015.

    • Zackasaur

      It will have zero impact on FFXV. Anyone who thinks so is utterly uninformed.

      However, FFXV was never openly slated for 2015… So that doesn’t mean it will release in 2015 regardless. We just don’t know yet.

      • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

        FF XV is most Likely coming next year. I remember last year. Nomura was asked if XV was coming out this year and he said he was targeting 2014 but he can’t confirm it because he knows the game might not be completely finish by the end of 2014. This rumor came from neogaf and N4G wouldn’t approve the story. So the game is probably coming 2015.

        • Zackasaur

          I’m definitely not saying it won’t release in 2015. c:

          I’m just saying that we don’t know. And if it doesn’t, we DO know that Type-0 HD has nothing to do with it.

          • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

            There is a reason XV didn’t get shown a this year’s E3 and that’s because SE didn’t want over shadow this announcement. Think about it. Why is it they keep saying FF XV development is going well but yet they can’t even give us a 1 min 30 second trailer of the game. It wouldn’t hurt them to give us a sneak peak. The problem is KH III & FF XV are big games and can easily make FF Type 0 HD & KH 2.5 become less relevant. Obviously in my opinion I think Square will show FF XV & FF Type – 0 HD at TGS while saving KH III for Jump Festa.

            • Zackasaur

              I’m definitely not disagreeing. lol

              SE have a well-known policy of balancing which games they show and when they show them in order to either prioritise new announcements or games that are closer to release.

      • Samsara09

        BELIEVE IN 20XV!

    • Surgeon of Death

      its coming in 2015 most likely but I will pray for 2014

  • Kickersu18

    i was so hyped for the vita version… i have no words for this.

  • shogunknight

    You could have at least ported the original game to the vita if it was so hard for you SE. I mean its the handheld community that was always asking for the game and then they ditch the main platform that needed it. What rubbish

    • Zackasaur

      Most Vita owners will have a PS4, and there is Remote Play… Plus, it’s an official Type-0 in the west, and remastered!

      This is definitely great news.

      But the lacking native Vita version… You are right. That is rubbish.

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

    Dam, PS4 version get

    Maybe the Vita too

    • miyamoto

      use Remote Play on Vita when you’re outside the house?

      • Zackasaur

        I will!

      • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

        Sony said they don’t guarantee remote play off-net

        • Anime10121

          It works, as long as you got a good wifi connection

          • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

            Oh nice

  • Six

    Looks like I’m in for the Xbone version now. Hopefully SE rights this wrong and puts this on Vita.

  • BlueCereal

    Lol no Vita version. Well since I don’t own any current gen consoles I’ll just play the PSP version with the English patch.

  • Pyrofrost

    Well, I’m happy with this announcement. I have plenty JRPGs for my PSV, and I would like some on PS4.

  • http://xanhisam.deviantart.com/ xanhisam

    Is it just me or does it look like they’re porting the whole thing to Luminous?

  • LordKaiser

    I was almost decided for a Wii U and now this tackles me XD

    • $61526767

      And yet, out of nowhere.. lol

    • Quetzalcoatl9999

      I’d definitely grab a Wii U, this game doesn’t even have a release date yet.

    • bloodiOS

      I don’t grab anything but just sit back, meditate, and await for the inevitable price drop.

  • Quetzalcoatl9999

    Of course, Vita is dead in the west, Square-Enix isn’t going to bother to release it. Even if this Shaid guy tries to bring it to Vita, it’s not gonna be soon.

    I don’t know why people are upset here, they should be GLAD that SE is bringing this game to the west.

    This is a personal choice, but i’d rather play it on consoles than handhelds.

    But hey, if you really want to play this on a handheld, you can download the fan translation.

    • EX+

      Ikr? PS4 version is gonna be 10x more beast than the Vita version would be. Plus, are people forgetting that VITA and PS4 connection?

      • Quetzalcoatl9999

        Is remote play confirmed for this game?

        • EX+

          No but do you really think they’ll leave it out?

          • Quetzalcoatl9999

            Probably.

        • Anime10121

          EVERY PS4 game has remote play (its required if memory serves)

          • Quetzalcoatl9999

            Good to hear, but this is bad news for Vita, this game definitely would boost sales for it, specially in the west.

            But yeah, Vita is dead.

            • Anime10121

              It is dead in the west, but fortunately, unlike PSP, its still getting localizations :)

              • Quetzalcoatl9999

                Yeah, that’s good, kinda surprised that games are being localized despite the mediocre sales.

                • Elvick

                  Hardware sales mean nothing without software sales.

              • Budgiecat

                PSP is getting Brandish in the West :P

                  Its getting tits too

                  • Budgiecat

                    cool

                    I like tits

                    • Anime10121

                      Everyone should like tits, one of the best role playing games ever!

      • MrFinalgamer

        “Plus, are people forgetting that VITA and PS4 connection?”
        Congrats, you just highlighted the main problem with Sony’s approach with the Vita. It’s a streaming machine. I thought this was supposed to be a handheld, that was capable of playing its own games. I didn’t pay $200, so I could stream games. Really it requires minimum effort to port it on the Vita. Namco already showed how pathetically easy it is to do that (see: SAO Infinite Moment), so why isn’t Square doing this? People WILL buy it, and it’s very cost effective, so why NOT release it on Vita?

        • Dede Ogbe

          ^This.

        • EX+

          Probably can’t be bothered to do it.
          I mean, if they were to make it for the PS4, XBO and PSV, the PSV version would have to be significantly downgraded. Apparently, that takes a lot of time and money.

    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

      Hard to compete with 3DS. But there are some great games on it. Like Persona and Ys Celceta.

      • Quetzalcoatl9999

        Of course, 3DS is a beast.

        I’m more interested for Monster Hunter 4 than a bunch of indies and ports for PS VIta.

        • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

          I don’t have a 3DS but my lil bro does, and I watch Bravely Default. I get jealous. But I do have a Vita, PSP, PS3, PS2, and a PS4. So no big deal. Used to have and XBOX360 and Wii, but had to sell them.

        • MisterHoot

          I disagree partly. The vita was finally starting to get some interest, also with Freedom Wars, Oreshika and Soul Sac delta which recently released, all exclusives (in addition to, admittedly, ports and indies, although some of these indies are beasts).

          But that kind of attitude from SE and Sony’s general disinterest doesn’t really cement confidence

    • Budgiecat

      It better LOOK like a PS4 game then because there’s some compressed graphical stuff going on in type Zero PSP (primarily the world map and minimized townz)

  • ayb_91

    That’s good. But, is it going to take forever till it gets released? I wonder of our precious SE would have a bit of mercy on us. :)

  • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

    I love this news. This is great. I hope this comes out at the end of this year. Maybe Nov’s end or December.

  • Zechs

    Not for Vita, wow… this is the funniest news I’ve ever heard rofl. Still, looking forward to playing it on PS4.

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      SE sees the system as dead in the west, they would’ve ported it way beforehand

  • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

    Finally an JRPG to play with a mature story but not so gritty-looking characters. With this, I’ll have more to play till XV or Batman AK comes out. This and Tales games.

    • Anime10121

      You assume this’ll be out before Batman…
      jk
      I hope its out later this year as well

      • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

        Batman was suppose to be out in Oct. I have it on reserve and everything. You know how heated I was when that got pushed back? But it’s ok, the game already has lots of gameplay shown, it’s coming along. I hope we all get to play it soon, like Feb. 2015 at least.

    • Samsara09

      Man,I feel dashed.This proves Square doesn’t intend to board the vita sinking ship.I really want to buy a vita,especially for hearts R…but man,I feel like shit,I don’t want to repeat the xbox 360/tales of vesperia fiasco.I am happy this game is coming…but man.

      • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

        It’s fine. Just get other stuff on the Vita. Non-Square games. Like Persona or Conception 2 or Ys Celceta. I don’t like Persona or Conception but I know they’re fun games.

        • Samsara09

          Gotta have faith!
          but man,that stroke me in the gut.Well,as I said,I am out.My last bastion of faith,tales of hearts R,just got trashed.

  • Budgiecat

    no Vita version : /

    Well hopefully that means they wont go cheap on the revamped character models and backgrounds…

    Now watch this give S-E another excuse to push back Final Fantasy XV another year…

    • shogunknight

      Hah, you wish

      Most likely. ‘Re-envision’ doesn’t sound like copy and paste sub PS2 models.

      • Budgiecat

        I wasn’t exactly impressed with FF X HD..

        • Bobby Jennings

          Neither was I. You got that win.

          But Type-0 was bigger than FFX imo.

          • Budgiecat

            yeah and heavily compressed on the PSP so they’ll have to do a lot of major redesigning

            I certainly do not want an Akiba’s trip PS4 effect

      • Anime10121

        :(
        WUT? Looks awesome! And this is the VERY beginning of the game. I mean they started the game from the first cutscene…

      • Anime10121

        Also, you see that open world with them giant lvl 40 something monsters in the second map?

        • Bobby Jennings

          Well it’s the combat that bores me. Everything else looks nice.

          This has multiplayer right?

          • Anime10121

            Dont think so…

            • Bobby Jennings

              I coulda sworn they showed 2 people playing together during the reveal..dunno

        • Bobby Jennings

          I think so?

      • Budgiecat

        You played Xenoblade?

        • Bobby Jennings

  • MrFinalgamer
    • Samsara09

      wait!tales of hearts R isn’t gettin dubbed!Just subbed.If that’s so,we should be thankful this game is releasing on PS4!The vita should change it’s name to “mortis”-Death.

      • MrFinalgamer

        Don’t know whether to be happy, or sad that they’re putting in minimum effort on the game..

        • Samsara09

          That shahid bastard is a poser.That campaign of his is shit.He managed to get hearts R.Oh,but not dubbed.Fucking funny.For months I have dreamed with playing this game.All of a sudden,my hopes were stomped.

          • MrFinalgamer

            We got the game. Does it really matter if it’s dubbed? It sucks, but we’re getting it. If it’s this, or nothing, I’ll gladly take subs.

            • Samsara09

              Well,to me it matters.I can’t support something the company itself doesn’t believe in.I will be repeating the vesperia fiasco all over again.

              • MrFinalgamer

                The game was getting a limited run exclusively on gamestop. It’s not about not believing in the product, but rather keeping numbers realistically. Tales of is niche on consoles. Having a niche game come over to a poorly selling console is a risk in and out of itself. They’re doing everything they can to make it cost-effective.

                • Samsara09

                  even so,with xenoblade,monolith soft believed in the game enough that they dubbed it.I don’t care much about the “oh,it was european voice actors,they weren’t as expensive”.it is the thought that matters.

                  My friend,I am not opposing you.If you wanna play this game,feel free.Have fun.I apologize for leaving you like this,after all my talk about buying this game and the vita.

                  • Anime10121

                    Different scenario.

                    1. It was on the most successful console of the last generation (vs. being on the least successful console/handheld period in a LONG time)

                    2. It was Nintendo who dubbed it not Monolith

                    3. It was a new ip they wanted to see succeed vs an established ip that even though its seen tons of releases in the west still generally sales like crap.

                    4. Xenoblade is FAR more ambitions than any Tales of game (and I love the series)

                    • Samsara09

                    Consider that has nothing to do with Monolith Soft believing in the game (not that they didn’t, obviously), that has to do with the game being published by a first party, big company like Nintendo on the most successful home console of the last generation, and still they made the US release really painful with delays and Gamestop exclusivity.

                    Tales of Hearts R, on the other hand, is being published on the weakest selling platform of the current gen by a company who decided to translate it only because of the fans outcry, and for obvious reasons they want to be cautious in order to avoid losing money on it (that’s the way they made that distribution partnership with Gamestop for the US, just like Nintendo did for Xenoblade). The game is still going to be great for Tales fans regardless of the dub they use, don’t miss out on it because of the Type 0 disappointment.

    It’s unfortunate that I missed the moment due having to attend lectures but damn, I’m so happy. This is dreams come true!

    • MrFinalgamer

      You missed the overjoy, and the despair of no Vita version…It all happened within minutes!

      • bloodiOS

        You can blame me for that. I was secretly hoping for it to be exclusive to 8th-gen home consoles if a remaster does indeed happen. This way, it has been set up to be perfectly profitable.

        • MrFinalgamer

          THANKS BLOODIOS! You’re almost as bad as Obama!

    Good news:
    it’s for Ps4 and HD.

    Unfortunately:
    it’s not coming in ps vita.

  • Samsara09

    We should be happy that type-0 is ditching the vita.That console was forsaken even by god!I just read that Hearts R won’t get dubbed,simply subbed.Honestly,since every rpg company is practically boycotting the vita,we should lend a hand!

    Whoever wants to play the vita and tales of hearts R is free to do so.What matters is having fun.Know this:This console probably won’t have a future.You may waste your money.But,even so,have fun.

    • Budgiecat

      (Namco)

      • Samsara09

        i doubt Atlus will release another game for the vita,I doubt SE will ever release an game exclusive to the vita,and namco is now shitting us with this.

        The vita should call itself “Playstation MORTIS”,for it is a dead console.

        • Budgiecat

          Maybe we’ll get Digimon and God Eater 2 Burst besides Sword Art Online…

          • Samsara09

            Well,I respect whoever may have fun with this console,since this is what video games are for.But this console is trash to my eyes,I am afraid.

            • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

              Trash with a lot of fun games.

              Does that make us dumpster divers?

              • Samsara09

                they say that,more often than not,one’s trash is another’s treasure.All a matter of perspective.

    • Anime10121

      I dont think its confirmed yet, all they said is that its coming to the west with Japanese audio and english subtitles. That doesnt mean its ONLY coming that way… at least I hope not D:

      • Samsara09
        • Anime10121

          Well damn…
          Oh well, still gonna get it…

          • Samsara09

            I respect your choice,don’t worry.But,this means that,if by some slim chance we get the other remakes,they probably won’t be dubbed.
            Not even graces had this treatment.

            • Anime10121

              I wouldnt say that… I think its just because its on Vita and they dont think its worth it…

              • Samsara09

                Well,the fans themselves could produce a patch then,like with type 0.Why get our hopes up for this?
                We even had translations for the DS version.

                • Anime10121

                  1. Its official
                  2. Not everyone hacks their consoles
                  3. I wanna support this series

                  • Samsara09

                    1)Being official is just a formality.

                    2)Ah yes,it is hacking?i didn’t know :D,sorry

                    3)We already support it,by buying graces,xillia and in the future,xillia 2 and zestiria.Besides,namco isn’t being honest with us here.They themselves are supporting something they don’t believe in.

    • Kevadu

      But I actually prefer subbed to dubbed…of course both would be ideal, but how often do they do that?

      • Samsara09

        I get what you say.Man,I hate this situation,i feel like shit.I really wanna support namco,but I can’t support something they themselves don’t believe in enough to take some risks.

  • Pyrofrost

    My god, this comment section. Did this place become GAF or something?

    • Samsara09

      Well,this is internet.Expect shit like this anywhere you go.I do have to apologize for my part in the mess down there,though.I am incredibly pissed.Not about type 0,but because of Hearts R.

      • Pyrofrost

        Being part of the same community as some of the filth posting here is nauseating.

        • MrFinalgamer

          O_O jesus, isn’t filth going too far?

          • Pyrofrost

            Depends on who you ask.

        • Anime10121

          Ignore it, for the most part, I try to as well…

          • Samsara09

            it is hard.

          • Pyrofrost

            It’s kinda hard when there is such a shitstorm going after Western audiences are finally getting a game they BEGGED for.

            I mean, yeah, the announcement was flubbed; but, shit, PS4 and XBone is better than none at all. Which is what they had before today, outside of that hack translation.

            I swear, people can’t be happy about anything.

            • Anime10121

              It is the internetz…people like to complain here just because they can :/

              But yeah folks should be happy either way, I mean, if you dont have a system that a game you want is gonna be released on, dont whine, buy the system, play the game, and have FUN (which a lot of people seem to forget is what this hobby is really about)…

              I mean, it aint like any of these games are coming out tomorrow, they got plenty of time to save :/

              • Six

                Playing games? Having FUN? Pfft. That’s not what this hobby is about.

                It’s about being as bitter and cynical as possible.

                • Pyrofrost

                  And death threats when you get news you don’t like, lets not forget that.

                  • Six

                    To be fair, I don’t think Kamiya got any death threats this time. Of course, he still had to put a few fanboys in their place on Twitter.

                    • Pyrofrost

                      More devs should be as courageous as him about doing that. I mean, I understand fans having a grievance about not getting what they want; but, the Western Japanese gaming community has a tendency to take things entirely too far.

                    • Six

                      Definitely. Things like Final Fantasy XIII going multi-platform, Dragon Quest IX on DS, and Bayonetta 2 on Wii U are all announcements I’d like to forget.

                      Thankfully Scalebound, Bloodborne and Devil’s Third were all met with very little butthurt besides some thinly veiled concern trolling.

                    • Anime10121

                      I still lol at that one where somebody told him he made the wrong decision on console and Kamiya said his whole life was a wrong decision XD

                • bloodiOS

                  Nah, it’s about what I love the most: salt =)

                  • Anime10121

                    Ah the beautiful taste of good salt with fries :D

              • Samsara09

                People forgot about this,or pehaps they never considered video games as simply fun.

            • Samsara09

              people always complain for the sake of complaining.

        • Samsara09

          filth is quite a compliment.

          People need to think before they post,but it seems they lose the capacity,when in a crowd,anonymously online or in a online community.

          it isn’t just them,though.In siliconere,I got harassed by a cocky mod simply because i asked them to watch the page about hearts R not being dubbed.

      • Pyrofrost

        Pretty much what a bunch of this thread sounds like.

        Personally for me, SE has been delivering non-stop awesome for me over the past year and a half.
        I really have no complaints about them, outside of the fact that they have a bunch of IPs that they are letting rot.

        Other than that, I’ve been happy with them.

        • Samsara09

          Yeah…like TWEWY.Wait…there is still one or two more annoucement,right?

      • Anime10121
      • Samsara09

        banned.Can’t say it was undeserved.

      • Hidayat246

        for some reason the first UMD will not be translated (forever) but only second UMD and is not even 100% completed

        did that guy know about it????
        i want to laugh now!!!!! wkwkw

  • http://ladymulti.livejournal.com/ LadyMulti

    Cool, yet another game to add to the things to make me poor list.

  • EX+

    The VITA is practically dead.
    Of course it would’ve been a good idea to release it on the VITA, but let’s just be happy that we can get the HD version of the depressing, yet good game on the PS4 and XBO as opposed to an amateur fan translation by people who think they can match up to the pros.

    • Anime10121

      I agree mostly with what you said, but there’s no reason to take a dig at the fantranslators who put in a LOT of work for a game it seemed like SE was ignoring for the past few years…

      • Articuno76

        It wouldn’t surprise me of Square Enix “re-appropriated” the fan translator’s work.

        • Anime10121

          They’ve supposedly been sitting on the translated version for years… Remember even the voice actors were wondering why it wasnt out…

          • Samsara09

            there were VAs?

            • Anime10121

              Plenty of folks who confirmed they did voices for the game. Not gonna look for em right now cuz to busy E3ing :P but its out there and easy to find on Google

              • Samsara09

                sure.

        • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

          Then they could be sued

        • Samsara09

          they need to pay,this is how things work.I doubt the guys who did it will keep it to themselves,if Square asked politely and offered a heavy sum to them.

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Amateur fan translation…? Yeah, I’m assuming the team that was working on translating the PS3 version of Tales of Vesperia were amateurs too? Or how about Valkyria Chronicles 3?

      Just because it’s a translation by fans doesn’t mean it’s being done by amateurs. Just take a look at fansubbers. A lot of them do make professional work from non-profit jobs they do as a hobby.

    • Samsara09

      What Tetsuya said.Don’t underestimate the fans,especially when they spent months and years for this.

  • Articuno76

    No Vita release despite how well FFX HD appeared to be doing on the system?

    • Samsara09

      the vita version sells were 1/6 of the total sells of the game.In other words,the other 5/6 were the PS3 version.Hence,the vita version flunked,heavily.

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      Even in Japan the PS3 version outsold the Vita, I highly doubt it would be different overseas. Why do you think the Vita sees so many digital releases in the West

      • MrFinalgamer

        To be fair, the PS3, and Vita numbers were REALLY close in Japan, if I remember correctly.

        • Samsara09

          the world isn’t japan.Times are changing,for better or worse.
          if you check the total sum,especially western,you will see the disproportion.

          • MrFinalgamer

            I know, just saying the Vita version sold really well in Japan, in comparison to NA.

            • Samsara09

              don’t worry,but you get what I say.

      • Articuno76

        The PS3 has a massive userbase compared to the Vita and has been out for considerably longer. But that didn’t stop the Vita version doing well.

        And looking at comments across the internet I’m really struggling to see how they could stand to make a loss on a Vita version. Even if it was a digital exclusive.

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

    It’s very simple, don’t like the game don’t buy it. Complaining won’t change anything

    • MrFinalgamer

      Complaining did net us a phisical version of One Piece on the Vita =P

    • Samsara09

      interesting,XIII will stay in the PS3,while the better games of the fabula novus crystalis will be on the PS4.Quite ironic.

      • SOforever

        yeah that is weird :) hmm…

        • Samsara09

          Maybe that was intencional,lol?Jokes aside,PS4 will be full of final fantasies.I am happy.

      • SOforever

        yeah but it doesn’t matter since I pan to buy PS4 anyway. wii u is a (maybe)

            PS: adam sessler was on spike TV Microsoft pre show yesterday

  • bloodiOS

    I wonder if there’s going to be a price drop on the PS4 by the time this game comes out…

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Type-0 PS4 bundle. They should do it.

      • bloodiOS

        Nice idea! Would definitely shift a lot of units in Japan.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Yeah, that’s what I was thinking. They have had a long time to play the PSP game, but I think any Final Fantasy game bundled with a console would sell well in Japan :p

          Plus, it would just give people more incentive to buy a PS4. They could do it again when FFXV and KH3 come out.

          • bloodiOS

            If they make a custom Type-0 skin for the bundled PS4 and not just cheap out by including the regular model, I’ll pre-order in a heartbeat.

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              I still need to order a PS4, but yeah… Not quite ready to do that just yet. My PS3 still has some life left in it :3

          • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

            Well actually quite afew of my friends have bought a PS4 and are playing western games like Killzone and WatchDogs. There’s a reason why SE localizes some western games there

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              Japan does enjoy Western games, but I still believe Final Fantasy has a greater hold on them over something like Killzone.

              • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

                I wonder how much the younger generation there has changed though

                • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                  Honestly, I’d think the younger generation is the one pushing for more Western games like Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, so forth and so on. You see the older generation wanting to hang onto older franchises and such, basically like a tradition.

      • Hidayat246

        XBOX bundle too

      • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

        Nah most in Japan already have or played it on PSP plus it wouldn’t sell more than the Destiny bundle

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Yeah, I know most have already played it on PSP (see below), but if you honestly think the bundle wouldn’t sell more than the Destiny bundle, then I’m going to have to call you crazy, man :p

          • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

            Well Japan isn’t getting the Destiny bundle

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              Don’t know, don’t care. Anything Final Fantasy sells in Japan. That was my point.

              • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

                Well Japan would rather get a FFXV bundle

                • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                  Well yeah…?

                  I just said in a comment below that they could do the bundle again once FFXV or KH3 come out >_<

                  Geez, Shin.

                  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

                    I see, well I don’t always take the grand tour

  • new_tradition

    I guess one other thing to take way from this is that we know SE will be focusing on 8th gen systems more or less from now on.

    They said no more Final Fantasy on 7th gen, and that seems to be the case. I don’t think it would have been hard to make Type-0 for PS3, but they went ahead to PS4 anyways. A hypothetical FFXII HD now seems more likely to be a 8th gen game now to boot.

    (Kind of makes sense now: FFXII HD, Type-0 HD, possible FFX-3, and then FFXV, in the span of 2 years or something…)

    • bloodiOS

      Still need a Raitonin-uguu~ Remastered Collection though.

      • Samsara09

        that relic should stay forever,forsaken,in the PS3.

        • new_tradition

          Relic? FFXIII is one of the prettiest games ever on PS3 :O

          • Samsara09

            form of speech.jokes aside,if it gets to the PS4,i hope it gets remade from scratch.

      • Hidayat246

        what is that???

        • bloodiOS

          =)

          • Hidayat246

            that emotion is not answer my question -_-

            • bloodiOS

              ;)

    • Samsara09

      I honestly doubt they will remake XII.But they may.
      While I was fairly interested in X-3,I ain’t anymore.Basically X-3 is about killing Tidus and rectifying X-2,probably.i can’t support this.

  • MrFinalgamer

    If there is ONE silver lining (besides Shahid trying to get a Vita version…BELIEVE), is that Ace no longer looks like Aya Brea from PE.

    Just look at them! They’re nearly identical!

    • new_tradition

      Aya and Cloud still look like they have the same face to me. Compare the CG of them both crying with blood on their faces. Can’t tell the differences o.o

      • MrFinalgamer

        I don’t know, they look pretty similar, specially with their hair styles being almost identical.. Kind of like Lightning, and Seven.

        • Samsara09

          maybe it is a cameo,lol.
          Maybe that was intentional.

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            Well, both games are part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis series, so theoretically… Lightning could be thrown in as a cameo into this game or even FFXV since that’s part of the series too, lol.

            • MrFinalgamer

              Or maybe…Nomura just wanted to finish as fast as possible, so he just took some of his earlier designs, and changed the hair =P

              • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                People are always reusing resources, so that wouldn’t be surprising.

        • bloodiOS

          Ace looks like Aya, Sice looks like Fang, Seven looks like Lightning, and Jack looks like Zack *LOL*

    • Samsara09

      Shahid and his bullshit idea(#jrpgvita)can go to hell.he deceived me.if sony were really interested in rpgs,they would have payed namco to dub Hearts R.

      • bloodiOS

        They care enough to bring Oreshika 2 over. Good enough.

        • Samsara09

          fair enough.

    • Gigus

      Its all up to Sony now if they want it on vita.

      • MrFinalgamer

        Hopefully we do. Originally we weren’t going to get the Vita version of Miku, and FFX HD took a while to get announced for the Vita over here, so maybe we’ll see something soon. Maybe even at Gamescom (believe…)

        • Gigus

          Its in sony’s court now, all they have to do is convince SE that a portable counterpart is worth investing on and you’ll have your vita version.

          This is all about investment man. I still want a vita version but knowing a ps4 (sexy sexy) version will be out instead made my interests in a portable version irrelevant.

          • MrFinalgamer

            My problem is that Tabata said that he wanted to bring it as a portable game, since he made the game with portables in mind. Its like MGS Peace Walker. It’s nice to play it on the PS3, but it’s clearly suited for the PSP/Vita (if you downloaded…which you should, the second analog stick feels so good!).

            • Gigus

              Yeah but I’m not Tabata so he doesn’t really know what I want XD. The only thing he knows for certain is that I wanted a western release.

              As for Peace Walker, its half/half. I loved playing that game regardless on whatever platform it was on but since a console version came out, my preferences leaned towards that because it used the games features to its full potential. The only thing that the portable version has over the console version is the soldier recruiting feature but thats not much to go on by my standards.

              • MrFinalgamer

                I just prefer playing games on a handheld. And, if it’s mission structred, like Type-0, and Peace Walker, I just prefer them on a handheld (reason why I bough Sly 4 on the Vita…and because I didn’t have a working PS3 XD)

                • Gigus

                  So this is where we part ways XD Though I still don’t mind a portable version still doesn’t mean I’ll play on it more over a console version.

                  • MrFinalgamer

                    If it’s the same price, and the performance is good, why not? Although, that’s mostly because I’ve gotten so used to handheld gaming this last year or 2, without a console to use. =/

                    • Gigus

                      I felt the same way when my ps3 had a mild stroke XD I’m just hoping that if they do a vita port, they’ll do it right and use all the features it has to offer.

                      Wishful thinking: the console version better not be some crappy HD port :(. They have enough tech to abuse to make it not feel like a port.

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      You saw that image at the end of the Agito trailer? I believe that’s in-game graphics. =3

                    • Gigus

                      nope gonna watch will update this comment.

                    • Gigus

                      Awesome! (just saw it)

  • Gigus

    Aww shit! Didn’t expect this :D

    • MrFinalgamer

      You missed the overjoyness of people, and my despair, realizing it wasn’t coming to Vita =(

      • Gigus

        At least a console version gives you more initiative to buy a current gen console (pretty sure you might get a ps4 over an x1).

        • MrFinalgamer

          I’m definitely buying a PS4 for KH3 (8 years and counting for a sequel…), and MGS V, and a lot of other games, maybe even Type-0. We might get it on Vita, but I would LOVE to play both a console version, and a portable version…

          • Gigus

            Cross-play mang! Thats another marketing sales point for sony to convince SE its profitable.

            • MrFinalgamer

              Hopefully, they can convince them hardheaded executives!

              • Gigus

                I can definitely tell you sony will lose a share if they do this. If they did bundles for a reasonable price, they’ll definitely pull off a hat-trick to meet half way.

                • MrFinalgamer

                  Indeed. Their biggest mistake with FFX, Killzone, LBP, and Uncharted is the lack of bundles for those games (specially Killzone). Bundle the red Vita, with Type-0, and you’re golden!

                  • Gigus

                    If they had a handheld console bundle for that, then it’d be way too saturated causing a loss in sales.

                    The bundles Im talking about is bundling both the console and handheld version for a reasonable price. Something SE needed to do with FFX/X2.

    • Samsara09

      Don’t worry,you just missed some shit,aside from the reveal.don’t even trouble yourself in reading this comment section.

      • Gigus

        I could careless about the no vita part. Im just happy for a western release :D

        • AdamBoy64

          And that’s a great attitude to have.

          Although I’m not much of a FF fan, I’m really happy for all the fans to finally get this game in the West.

          • Samsara09

            honestly,getting it for the PS4 was a bargain.i will be spared from having to buy PS death(the vita)

          • Gigus

            If I didn’t have a ps4 maybe I’d complain slightly XD What matters is that its getting a western release and thats the type of attitude that people should be having.

  • 罪罰

    Good.

  • jujubee88

    Erm, the way the Playstation ecosystem is now, VITA owners can play it too.

    I agree to those w/out PS4 (such as myself) that if you wanted this game on native VITA this blows. I get that. But, hey, buy a PS4 and if you have a VITA than you’re set.

    A sucky consolidation prize, but, ya. It’s not like SE ever feigned interest in VITA to begin with. I’m not sure they ever will unless future VITA sales or PSTV prove otherwise.

  • AlphaSixNine

    What’s even more insulting to not getting a Vita release is that SE is releasing it to XBOne too. Seriously? People didn’t buy XBone for JRPGs they want f*cking shooters. How does this make sense? Listened to your fans my as*. Everyone that voiced their desire for the game wanted it on Vita.

    I don’t dislike a PS4 release but excluding Vita and saying they listened to the fans is just plain insulting.

    • Six

      Thanks for telling me what I want.

    • MrFinalgamer

      Like I said a couple of hours ago, I bet this game, and FFXV will sell quite a bit on the Xbone. Why? They’re not turn based RPGs, unlike FFXIII, and they’re both a 180 in comparison to what FFXIII offered.

      • Six

        Final Fantasy XIII sold a million copies on 360.

        This mentality that the Xbox fanbase is nothing but ignorant meathead dudebros really needs to stop.

        • bloodiOS

          Gariya would beg to differ.

              *LOL* By the way, just curious but why do you keep deleting your accounts anyway? Recently, you would always come back with the same name so… what’s the point?

              • Six

                Stuff comes up or I just want to stop posting for a while, and just getting rid of my account gets me to stay away longer.

                I hadn’t planned on coming back, but that Devil’s Third announcement made me.

                • bloodiOS

                  I knew you would be jumping in joy at it. Looks like our prediction was way off though. I thought for sure it would be a XBO exclusive.

                  • Six

                    I figured it would be either Microsoft or Nintendo. I’m not exactly jumping for joy just yet though, because it’s looking kind of rough right now.

                    I want to believe in Itagaki and Nintendo though.

                    • bloodiOS

                      I would probably buy a Wii U when it launches.

        • MrFinalgamer

          I’m not saying FFXIII sold bad on 360. What I’m saying is that Type-0, and (defintely) FFXV will most likely sell better due to a much different approach to the series. A lot of people don’t like turn based combat, but do enjoy action RPGs, and the number of people that enjoy ARPGs is (IMO) growing.)

        • AdamBoy64

          Well said.

      • AlphaSixNine

        Sure but the “fans” they said instrumental to the western release wanted it on Vita. Suddenly they give it only to XBOne and PS4? Not on the platform fans vocally declared they want it in? Nobody asked for a PS4 version let along XBOne but they are saying fans are the reason for it. No one will complain if they didn’t exclude Vita.

        • MrFinalgamer

          Bloodios wanted it on the PS4, though (THANKS @Bloodios:disqus)

          I feel you, though. I definitely wanted it on Vita, but hey! Maybe they’ll surprise us, like with FFX HD, which looked like they were going to skip the Vita version!

          • AlphaSixNine

            I mean when it was still on PSP and no one thought it will come to PS4. PS4 never even existed at that time the begging started. Everybody expected it on Vita if it ever gets remade or an HD treatment for obvious reasons.

    • jujubee88

      Multiplat release is just par for the course.

    • Bobby Jennings

      No. Everyone voiced their desire of wanting it period.

      They’re not going to release one of their best games on a dead console.

      No offense but the Vita is currently lacking here in the US.

      • AlphaSixNine

        And that treatment and mentality is exactly why

        • Bobby Jennings

          Indeed

          Like, he’s dumb? What do you mean “fried”?

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            He’s going to be without a job. He’s cooked. He’s done. If he’s banking his career on getting this game on Vita, he’s pretty much screwed.

            • jujubee88

              Really? Why? He signed a bunch of indies on PS platforms, so he did his job.

              • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                Type-0 isn’t a “bunch of indies” though.

                  Neither was Hearts R ;)
                  BELIEVE~

                  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                    …Are you seriously comparing Hearts R to the likes of Type-0? You’re waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay off base here, man, lol. You can’t compare Type-0 to Hearts R.

                    Type-0 has way more demand and is far more important than the Tales R localization ever was.

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      I’m saying, he has already brought over non-indie games. So it’s definitely possible. Maybe even a PSN release, at the very least.

                    • bloodiOS

                      According to the man himself, Hearts R has more demand for some reason though:

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      They already have a translation, including VA, so I extremely doubt it.

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      The game is coming to the west. He promised to bring a game to the west. He delivered.

                    • Samsara09

                      And this is why I hate the “exact words” trope.Now that you mention it,he never said it would get dubbed as well,we thought it was implied.

                      And I just got even madder.If this guy thinks he can outsmart me like this,he can go to hell.

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      Not much demand, but rather, Tales fans were more organized, than FF fans. He said Type-0 started off incredibly strong, but Hearts had the better legs.

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      The man is lying, lol. I don’t know what kind of poll they ran or how it was conducted, but Type-0 has generated more buzz than Tales of Hearts R ever did, so I believe his information is faulty, honestly.

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      He made it so people had to put #jrpgvita, and the game(s) they wanted. Tales had the longer legs, and he decided to go for that. If it was based on popularity alone, Type-0 would’ve easily won, though.

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      We’ve had plenty of games to take our minds off of Type-0, so at the time… Tales of Hearts R was probably fresh in the minds of the public. Of course that’s what they would be thinking of at that point in time, but if you were to mention Type-0 again, they would change their mind and probably say, “Actually, we’d like Type-0 more if that’s actually possible!”

                      Plus, I imagine that some people simply voted for Tales of Hearts R because Type-0 was getting a fan translation, so you can consider that to be an unknown variable in the equation to the poll which could have lead to falsified information.

                    • Samsara09

                      as MrFinalgamer said,tales of fans are more organized,since they are used with bugging the comapany till they release games…

                      Usually all final fantasy games are localized without fail,so FF fans lack experience.Plus,the fanbase is horribly divided lately,

                    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

                      Playstation Strategic Content Manager, or something along those lines. He brings a lot of indies to the Vita, and recently Tales of Hearts R.

                      He did appear in Gamescom last year.

                • jujubee88

                  Wth is this? Shahid did his due diligence with workable parts on the indie scene so even if his job is say to get an game(s) on an PS platform(s), he did it!

                  I’ve only heard of how hard it is to work w/ Japanese giant companies, so I wouldn’t blame him.

                  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                    I couldn’t care less about his involvement with indie titles, honestly. If he manages to bring Type-0 to the Vita, then he’ll have respect. Until then *shrugs*

                    • jujubee88

                      We’ll see if he actually cares to earn your respect. But, as I said, his job doesn’t hinge on that.

                    • Samsara09

                      Well,usually I appreciate a good professional and try to keep it respectful,but honestly…in this case it is complicated

                    • jujubee88

                      Well, if enough outrage and social media backlash happens then, ya.

                      But Shahid works hard on actual indie stuff that’s coming out, a lot and in good quality. So if people get him fired than imagine the type of employer Sony are losing.

                    • Samsara09

                      Maybe he will be put on the fridge,lol…or demoted.If he is really that good,they may keep him around.

                      but if this happens,his career is practically over.He won’t be going anywhere.

                      He should have researched how much Sony was willing to financially compensate the rpg companies for the hassle of localizing games like type 0 and hearts R .

                      he can only blame himself for this mess,I am afraid.

                    Well,his campaign was a farce.He failured to get hearts R dubbed,just subbed.If that was the case,a fan translation patch would have been better.

          It’s a sarcastic, in a joking way, response. That’s how comfortable he is and others who interact with him are. It’s just him telling everyone he’s gonna do something about it. Whether or not he delivers is a mystery.

        Thanks. Didn’t see that tidbit.

  • jujubee88

    People are getting super emotional about this right now. Not to anybody’s surprise, I suppose.

    • SOforever

      many of us have wanted to play this game for YEARS :) now only FF XV remains

      • jujubee88

        Oh ya, I know. Everyone one Gematsu should know this as fact.

        • jujubee88

          I’m also referring to the fact people wanted this on VITA.

          • SOforever

            I’m 50/50 on the vita handheld but MIGHT get PS vita TV though

            Really though Vita only has a handful of fans outside Japan, no company will take that risk

            • jujubee88

              What do you mean “fans”?

            • MrFinalgamer

              Quite a few people seemed to be pissed at the PS Blog about E3 having little to no Vita support. Don’t even go to the Type-0 HD post. 500 comments, and most are just people pissed off about no Vita release.

              • jujubee88

                I’m not sure what shinasure was talking about there..

                • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

                  The Vita has a low install base outside Japan

                No Vita!? Xmas is cancelled!

                • MrFinalgamer

                  Lol, you read that comment? Also, the news has like a 2.6/5. That’s exaggerating at this point XD

                  But maybe we might get the game on Vita now?
                  BELIEVE~

                  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

                    Sony will probably ask SE due to them screwing up the blog post and all the backlash

        Am I the only person who never cared about this game?

        • jujubee88

          No. I don’t care much about it, kinda like you.

    • Samsara09

      people exaggerate too much.Just ignore them.Honestly,some comments here bother me.

      • jujubee88

        I will. :)

  • Six

    So, do you think this will be DD only or will it have a physical release as well?

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      Physical

    • MrFinalgamer

      Based on how gorgeous that image with Ace is, retail, easily. Too much effort, for just a DD only. Plus, this game is being used as a decoy to distract people of FFXV =P

      Golly, not sure I want to read pages and pages of people who think that Square owe them something.

      In saying that, it would be nice if it was on Vita as well, but some people act incredibly entitled.

  • bloodiOS

    I wonder how much more detailed are the characters’ panties going to be… Will they have proper curves and elevations now?

    http://andriasang.com/comysp/

    • Samsara09

      it will be fanservice in GLORIOUS ULTIMATE HD

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      I wonder if the post image is an in-game screenshot. *drools*

      • Samsara09

        it probably is.I remember seeing a in game video showing the panties.

      • MrFinalgamer

        If it is, Ace looks BADASS. Like, he’s ready to fuck some people up…with cards! FF’s Gambit is ready to end this war!

      • Gigus

        not sure about that one but the image at the end of the agito trailer is another indication of what the HD version will look like.

    • MrFinalgamer

      Squeenix will put some next gen cloths physics to the panties! Obviously, THIS is the reason they’re putting it on the PS4 only! It explains SO much.

      • Pyrofrost

        I approve of panties @ 1080p and 60fps.

        • bloodiOS

          1080p@60fps camel toes will be divalicious.

    • BtShadowX

      Feminists are going to be real mad ^_^

      • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

        Most don’t even know about this game

        • bloodiOS

          That won’t be the case when it launches on the PS4 and XBO.

      • Quetzalcoatl9999

        why?

      • new_tradition

        A article about the designer talking about how much effort she put into panties probably won’t be a big deal. AFAIK, there’s nothing about flashing panties in the actual game :P

        But I’m still curious about that weird stalker camera thing I saw a vid of once. Some lady character in Type-0 and you’re spying on her in her bedroom, wtf. I still don’t get what that was about…

        That does bother me a tad bit, but if I can spy on some guys, I’ll be good. Equal opportunity fanservice I never say no to >:D

    • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

      It’s a deep dark story about standing up against oppression and people focus on the panties?

      • Pyrofrost

        It’s not like biology stops working just because times become dark and oppressive.

        • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

          No I mean, isn’t it time to think deeper? Sex is fine. But panty shots and lewd jokes ruin an epic story IMO.

          • bloodiOS

            If they force it in during a cuscene, maybe, but they’re not. This is strictly optional stuffs.

            • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

              Like skits in Tales games?

              • bloodiOS

                Even more cryptic than that. The game doesn’t tell you that you can view panties. That’s something you find out yourself.

                • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                  Ok, I’ll just not do it then. It’s like looking at the panties of Batgirl. I respect them as heroes, they’re not to be sex symbols.

            • MrFinalgamer

              A certain company should take notes on this.
              *cough* Atlus, with that hotspring event added in P4G *cough*

          • Pyrofrost

            It more or less whether or not you allow it to do so personally. I’ve been meddling in Japanese entertainment long enough to compartmentalize things, rather than allow that sort of thing to take away from the overall experience and story.

            • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

              Ok then. As long as it’s not like those harem Compile Heart games where the whole plot is about breast size and hot springs.

              • Pyrofrost

                Pretty much. I mean, yeah, there are games (like the ones from CH) that are heavy in fanservice and have terrible stories. The stories are garbage from the get-go; so the fanservice is a ploy to rope in more buyers and to help cover up the shit story and characters.

                However, if we were to shrug-off any story and character driven Japanese game as sub-par, solely on the grounds of fanservice, we’d miss a lot of real gems.

                • https://www.behance.net/cobaltcomet KOKAYI5

                  Fanservice is fine in small doses for me. As long as the whole game isn’t some 4th wall break RPG genre parody. As long as the jokes don’t ruin an otherwise deep story.

      lol, I remember that. My old comment is still there too.

      Let’s see, that was about 3 years ago. My opinion now…Still the same.

  • bloodiOS

    I’ll be happy if the quality of in-game models matches the non-real-time cutscenes ones of the PSP version.

  • DarthBrian

    I’m still upset about no Vita.

    • MrFinalgamer

      A lot of people are. Not just Neogaf, though maybe they’ll surprise us with a Vita version, like with One Piece getting a physical version, and Miku coming to the Vita.

      • DarthBrian

        Miku. <3

      • Elvick

        Miku coming to Vita later… after fans were begging for the Vita version when Sega asked about if people were interested in the PS3 version… and after Miku Vita was shown off at E3 with “no plans” for localization…….

        And then it was digital only to boot…

        Hardly a good situation IMO, but at least 2nd is doing it right.

        And Bamco with One Piece is awesome.

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      At least we’re getting it and if Sony is smart due to all the backlash since page two they’ll at least get SE to release it digitally

      • DarthBrian

        Hopefully.

        How was the theater thing for the conference by the way?

        • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

          Nothing special, basically they played a bunch of trailers till the conference started and at the end had some dev interviews that I didn’t stay for.

          We did get a code and poster though

          • DarthBrian

            Was the poster cool?

            • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

              Was ok I guess but I attached two pictures if you refresh

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

    I wonder what changed at SE, there were way more complaints about a FF7 remake than this and SE said ffff yooou, well actually Yochi Wada did.

    Porting Type-0 would be cheaper of course but with all the backlash about no Vita version today it would be in Sony’s best interest to at least offer it digitally or those PS TV sales are going to be REALLY bad

  • bloodiOS

    It looks a tad rough… (for now, anyway.)

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      Probably alpha footage, will probably be as good as the FFX remaster

      • bloodiOS

        Uh… this already looks better.

        • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

          Then why say it’s a tad rough

      The game looks great, but now I’m curious, why does the PS4 have a trademark…mark, while the Xbone doesn’t?

          zero
          ya shouldn’t feel bad :) I made a YouTube video expressing my joy to FINALLY play this and I already have 1 dislike. Which is why I put comments on APPROVED now. A user basically said “_ SE now I have to buy a PS4 wah” so deleted their comment

          I have been following this & FF XV since about Fall 2006. I have seen SO MANY rant videos because people were upset because FF XV wasn’t at E3

        • Shippoyasha

          Call me morbid, but I love it when comments breaks down sometimes. It’s entertaining if nothing else.

        Not everyone I’m afraid. ; ;

    • MrFinalgamer

      If you’re talking about some of my comments (I wouldn’t blame you). I’m VERY sorry. I was incredibly happy (to the point of tearing up a bit…not kidding) when I saw the initial Vita post. Seeing it not come to the Vita made me incredibly bitter/salty & disappointed, so that caused some of my early comments. I apologize for such comments.

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        I understand. It’s easy to get emotional and caught up in things. It’s like I said below though, no one person is at fault.

  • bloodiOS

    I wonder if Square Enix is handling the remastering process or it’s going to be outsourced to Virtuos Games like last time…

    • Quetzalcoatl9999

      I think it’s gonna be outsourced considering that FF X HD was outsourced too

  • Quetzalcoatl9999

    You know, i like to play those games in my sofa, specially long JRPGs, i don’t understand why ppl like to play these games on handhelds.

    • MrFinalgamer

      I like playing long JRPGs on the go. They’re great time sinks. You can grind, do a quest, ect, and still have more to do. It makes grinding more bearable, and works great for mission based RPGs, like Type-0.

      With a console, I’m starting to just want to use one for cinematic experiences.

      • Quetzalcoatl9999

        Well, i can understand people who travels a lot play these games, but i’ve met a lot of people who game on handhelds and they almost never leave their house. xD

    • Elvick

      Too bad this game is designed on a handheld, so unless they really overhaul the game… it’ll suck on a console.

      It’ll look barren and small on PS4/Xbone. It’d be less of an issue on PS3/Vita/360. But SE gonna be retarded. I mean, they’re not in Sega or Capcom levels of fail yet. Gotta race to the bottom!

  • bloodiOS

    PSP for $49.99 and fail, or Vita for $49.99/$39.99 and fail? Nope, gotta be PS4/XBO for $59.99 and profits =D

    • Quetzalcoatl9999

      Make sense, PS4 has a very huge installed base and it keeps growing.

      Square-Enix and any company is looking for profits.

    • MrFinalgamer

      They could just re-use the assets from Agito with Type-0, and with a translation already done, the only issue, cost wise, would be the packaging, which I think with decent enough sales, they could cover those costs.

      • bloodiOS

        All in all, they have no interest in a dead platform (as far as the West is concerned.)

        • MrFinalgamer

          They released FFIII on the PSP, months after it was “dead” in NA.

          • bloodiOS

            Well, maybe because it has a larger install base and that was more or less of a simple cash-grab of a port?

            • MrFinalgamer

              I think people wouldn’t mind a “simple cash-grab” of Type-0 on the Vita…at least, I wouldn’t.

              • bloodiOS

                There’s still the issue of tiny install base…

                • MrFinalgamer

                  People buy software for the Vita, specially for a game that’s not been released over here. =(

                  • bloodiOS

                    Not enough people though xP
                    I mean, think about it, PS4 and XBO together would dwarf the Vita’s install base many times over.

    • new_tradition

      Why would the PSP version be 49.99? :O

      • bloodiOS

        At the time when Type-0 was first released, a big-budget PSP game would still likely be priced at $49.99. Of course, since PSP is long dead, it ain’t happening. Vita however, right off the bat, games’ price would vary between $49.99 and $39.99.

  • Quetzalcoatl9999

    Would you buy this game if it were digital only for Vita? It’s a very big game btw (2 UMDS)

    • MrFinalgamer

      The japanese version is around 2.4 to 2.6gb, and it would probably go beyond 3gb with upgraded graphics…meh, why not?

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Just because it was put on 2 UMDs does not mean it was a big game. A single layer UMD only holds 900MB worth of data. If you’re like me and like to rip these games, you can see there is usually 100+ MB worth of padding on the UMD (i.e. useless data just to fill the UMD).

      Even a dual layer only holds 1.8GB, so in total, it could be 3.6GB in size, even though it’s not. Hell, even if it was… You can find PS2 games that were easily twice that size. Gran Turismo 4 alone was 8GB on a dual layer DVD. Most PS2 games actually fit pretty easily on a single layer DVD and were generally between 1.4 to 3.0 GB big though. UMD was the worst form of medium I have seen for data since Sony’s flop with the Betamax.

      • Quetzalcoatl9999

        This is an HD game, it’s gonna weigh more.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Lol no

          It’s being upscaled. It doesn’t mean it will weigh more. They are simply going to format it to fit HD quality, but there won’t be this significant increase in size.

          I’m sure the Blu-Ray will show you it’s going to be like 20+ GB, but I’d be willing to bet you at least 10GB of that will be padding. The game will probably come out to be closer to 15GB or so, most of which will be because of the sound more than anything since it’s using a different sound format for PS4/XBOX One as opposed to PSP, so that’s going to take up a lot more space.

          • Quetzalcoatl9999

            15 GB is still a lot for Vita…

            gotta get those expensive memory cards.

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              …Vita release isn’t official. Only PS4 and XBOX One for now. It might come out on Vita, but don’t hold your breath. For now, just expect it on PS4 and XBOX One as planned.

          • MrFinalgamer

            I might not know a lot in terms of technology, but I’m 100% THIS isn’t just a simple upscale.

              Well, I didn’t mean it in a sense of taking a 250×250 picture and stretching it to 600×600 or anything like that, lol. I just meant it more along the lines of… They will probably just reuse textures and such rather than build the graphics from the ground up in order to save time on development. Now, if this was being released through the Luminous engine, that would blow minds… But it’s probably just going to be upscaled to simply look better in a bigger resolution, but still a little rough around the edges :p

              • MrFinalgamer

                If they’re just doing that, then I have to ask…why the fuck isn’t it getting a Vita release!? D=

                • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                  No idea. The industry makes a lot of decisions I don’t understand.

      • bloodiOS

        The only reason the game was so bloated in size was because similar to Final Fantasy XIII, instead of being rendered in real-time, countless non-CGI cutscenes are actually video files and they were encoded at high bitrate to keep the quality relatively pristine. If they approach a hypothetical Vita version the same way, a larger amount of bandwidth would be required to attain the same level of quality at the Vita’s higher resolution (after all, there are 4x the amount of pixels in comparison of that of the PSP.) So, again, if they follow the same approach as the original PSP version, 2 Vita game cards would undoubtedly be required to contain the whole game. Ideally speaking, I would prefer that if they were to put the game on the Vita, at least make sure all cutscenes are real-time (exclude the CGI ones.)

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Yeah, but I’m not talking about Vita here. I’m not even bringing that into the equation since it has only been officially announced for PS4 and XBOX One >.>

          • bloodiOS

            Perhaps I should’ve replied to your other response to @Quetzalcoatl9999:disqus instead?

    So many whiners at the PlayStation Blog

    • Anime10121

      I dont even wanna see that :/
      I can only imagine the crying since that’s where the missinformation originated…

        Whining gets nothing accomplished

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Well, that’s not entirely true. Whining has accomplished a few things. It just depends on how you go about doing it.

        • MrFinalgamer

          The #novitanobuy is a thing on twitter.

        • MasterSensei

          Well it got this game released over here didn’t it?
          (Well whining is a strong word to use) but there was a large petition signed of over 10,000 people (I think? there could have been more) and they all had to send a tweet or a nice Phone call to Square to ask them to release the game (It was operation Suzaku… unless that had nothing to do with it? which is kind of sad…)

          But OH WELL, the past is in the past and we finally to play the game! What else is there to say?

          • heero2001

            Whining didn’t get this game here. PS4 and Xbox release success got this here.

    • bloodiOS

      Vocal minority =D

      • Anime10121

        And many of them will still end up buying it once they get PS4’s XD

        • bloodiOS

          Gotta conform xD

      • Izzeltrioum

        Gotta say SE’s fanbase doesn’t have what it takes to be the king of Vocal Minorities–Such righteous benefit belongs to us Tales Fans. Our dedication led Namco to unleash positivism embracing the already-mentioned series here in the west, starting with Tales of Graces F.

        • bloodiOS

          Which is why I didn’t specify which kind of vocal minority =)

    • MrFinalgamer

      Lots of comments getting deleted. And I mean A LOT. Like, pages worth of comments.

      • Elvick

        A lot of them were spammy though. Some people were posting the same type of comments multiple times. Which is spam.

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

    Sweet, Sony is cleaning up the comments

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      The damage has already been done. It’s not going to be so easy as to just delete the anger :p

      • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

        Some of the comments were illegal

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          “illegal” ?

    • MrFinalgamer

      TBH, that’s not a good way to go around it. I still don’t understand how they could fuck up THIS bad. The fact that the Vita had a VERY poor showing at E3 was already getting people pissed off. This was just icing on the shit cake =/

    • bloodiOS

      Just lock the comment thread and let them bottle it all up xP

  • Kobracon

    So soon after the fan translation was released….coincidence?

    lol but seriously, this is cool news, better late than friggin never at least. And we get the Agito phone game too. Vita woulda been nice but meh, I already have a PSP and can go test out that translation.

  • ShinGundam

    Looks like they ripped CG models, put it in the game? or what? I don’t think PSP game looks like that.

  • bloodiOS

    Graphics aside, the scale of the environments in FFXV better be as large, as diverse, and as exquisite as XCX or Square Enix will look like a joke in my eyes.
    [EDIT] I just realized I posted this in a wrong thread…

    • Anime10121

      The trailer “seemed” to have large environments last year…but we’ll see

  • tokyobassist

    Ok I just got home and saw this while I was taking a dump and I literally force shat out of excitement and disbelief. I am SO excited for this.

  • PrinceHeir

    I just hope they make a Vita version if PS4 and Xbox One becomes successful.

    To be honest, they should have ditched Xbox One and went PS4/Vita combo.

    Everyone would have been satisfied :P

  • EspadaKiller

    S-E should have made a Vita version. Sigh.

  • carrebeannut

    why this for next gen, this belongs to handle. just give me FF15 dammit not this.

  • AdamBoy64

    It sounds like this game won’t be pushing towards the limits of the PS4 – it’ll probably play identical on PS4 and X1.

    • bloodiOS

      Probably won’t even be pushing Wii U’s limits xP

      • AdamBoy64

        Haha, yep. Gotcha.
        So, basically – there’ll be no real issue just picking it up for whatever system you’ve got.

        • bloodiOS

          Would be for the best, really. I mean, there’s only so much remastering can bring after all. Beside, unable to bring out optimal performance across 8th-gen platforms from what originally was a PSP game would seriously scream incompetence.

          • AdamBoy64

            Right, I certainly see your point.

            Did you like the game, Bloodios? (I’m assuming you’ve played it from previous posts).

            I’m wondering if it plays like a mainstream FF title, or whether it’s a different game genre.

            • bloodiOS

              Nah, not yet, which is why I’m so excited now ;)
              Gameplay are pretty action-oriented based on the PSP demo that I played. That said, it doesn’t feel non-mainstream to me.

              • AdamBoy64

                Ah nice.

                I guess I was wondering if it was like one of their turn-based strategy games or a spin-off like that.

                Hearing it’s action-oriented is great. That makes me pretty interested in it now.

                Thanks for the info.

                • MrFinalgamer

                  Gameplay is basically a faster, and more fluent version of Crisis Core. Which technically is still the ATB, but with free movement, but meh.

  • MrFinalgamer

    Let me add some fuel to the dying fire that is the dreamy Vita version.

    Acording to Kagari/Erren Van Duine, Sony approached Square for a Vita release, Square turned them down. She does have connections, and knew of Type-0 HD before hand, so take it as you will. Maybe the meltdowns will make Square reconsider?

    • bloodiOS

      Squeenix: “That ship has sailed, son!”

      • MrFinalgamer

        Also, from what she says, that teaser image won’t be much different from the main game. They’re trying to rush it out ASAP, which means…hope you enjoyed the graphics in that image!

        • bloodiOS

          If it was a game I have already played, I can assure you that I’ll be whining to high Heaven but honestly, given that I wasn’t able to play the original PSP version, I couldn’t care less. Just give it to me ASAP!

          • MrFinalgamer

            True, but again, maybe after the whining that happened today, they’ll reconsider? Kind of like Namco, and physical release for One Piece, or SOA with Project Diva F on the Vita.

            • bloodiOS

              Honestly, my main concern for this is the mini-loading between sections of an area. Graphics I don’t mind, but they better sort out that shit. I prefer that loading times are non-existent (given the fact that we’ll have to install the whole game to the HDD.) I also don’t care if they cheap out and aim for 30fps, but the performance better be rock solid. By the way, the image I posted doesn’t seem to be rendered at native 1080p either (even the texts were blurry.) So yeah, I think/hope that the final version would look better running at native 1080p. Would be great if they use 4xMSAA but if they cheap out and use FXAA… I wouldn’t mind either. I do hope that they’ll switch all the non-CGI pre-rendered cutscenes to real-time at least. And they better have access the source materials that were used to render the CGI cutscenes, because holy shit, upscaling from 480×272 to 1080p would look gross as fuck!

              • MrFinalgamer

                That’s my main problem with this being on console right there! This game is literally designed with handhelds in mind, and would need a big overhaul for it to work on consoles, like a AAA FF console game. That’s why I want it so bad on the Vita. It’s like PW for me. It works well on consoles, but it feels great doing some missions, then putting it away, then come back. Nothing can replicate that awesome feeling IMO.

                I think we’ll see gameplay at TGS, or at least a trailer, and see how they changed the gameplay.

                • bloodiOS

                  I’m pretty sure there were a lot undesirable mini-loadings during just one mission. Being on the Vita won’t change that.

                  • MrFinalgamer

                    Just like in PW, but if you’re doing 1 or 2 missions, it doesn’t bother me as much. But if you’re doing 5-10 in a long play session in your TV, it WILL get annoying.

                    Also, that 5 minute timer on the co-op better get removed.

        • Elvick

          If that’s true… why the fuck isn’t it on PS3 too? (and 360 I guess)

    • Pyrofrost

      Nothing personally against you, but all the meltdowns is the primary reason I’m hoping SE sticks to their guns.

      • MrFinalgamer

        I just think that they’ll do a straight port, with better graphics, and that just can’t work with Type-0. The game is designed around doing quick quests, and doing them on the go is just more organic, than on console. Even if it costs me some pretty graphics, I would like to play this game in its intended form.

        Like playing Tearaway, without all of the Vita’s features. Sure, you’ll get to play the amazing game, but not the original intention. Hopefully they make it work for consoles, but I doubt it =/

        • Pyrofrost

          It’s not the first portable to console HD remaster ever done.

          They’re making Birth By Sleep work, I’m sure they’ll manage.

          • MrFinalgamer

            Just like Killzone, and Uncharted, BBS always felt like a “console experience”, since it was KH1, and 2, but with a much more creative battle system. =P

            There’s just some portable games that can easily translate to consoles, and some that need some work to feel good. Type-0 falls in the latter lMO

            • Pyrofrost

              You’re really just grasping at straws man. Have you even played Type-0?

              (yeah, I understand “in your opinion” and all; but I really need to ask now)

              • MrFinalgamer

                Seen the missions on the demo, but that’s it. Trying to stay as “clean” as possible for the hopeful HD release (kind of like with VC3…someday, we’ll get this game)…looks like I finally got it…heh.

                • Pyrofrost

                  Ok, I figured I would ask.

                  I can understand having the game on your preferred platform; however, just outright rejecting it because it’s not on the preferred platform just doesn’t register with me.

                  I mean, there is no definitive experience to be had by playing this game on a portable. If anything, it’s a game that was begging to be put to consoles from the get-go; however, was made for PSP more out of obligation.

                  • MrFinalgamer

                    After a couple of years of playing handhelds only, I’ve grown incredibly use to playing them. They feel so comfortable now, my bias for them is just showing. I really need to get another PS3 ASAP! O_O

                    • Pyrofrost

                      I enjoy playing on both handhelds and consoles. It doesn’t really make a difference to me, as long as we get the games.

                      The fact that Type-0 is even seeing a Western release is a huge victory. That, is enough for me to celebrate regardless of the platform.

                    • novurdim

                      It may be for you, but when the last years’ main “fighting force” was vita-community and they don’t even get the game, it feels more and more like a Pyrrhic victory. As much as I try to respect your opinion, I must that it’s almost vain and pointless.

                    • Duo Maxwell

                      Yeah. People who did no shit eventually get the game, and people who keep on fighting got shit on. The world sure is a nice place.

                      I bet you aren’t even a part of the community that asked for the localization of Type-0.

                    • Pyrofrost

  • SOLOmio

    Everything BAD that I wanted to say already been Said! Is Dark times at Square Enix! they should do the “No more Fantasy” Series!

    • bloodiOS

      Dark? It’s feeling so bright right now, actually.

      • SOLOmio

        sorry I meant SE japan! I still didn’t see anything appealing from them besides the on work FFV(tha I hope it doesn’t suck as XIII-sequels) and KHIII!

        • bloodiOS

          You don’t have to worry about FFXV sucking, because it got Nomura leading it and the writer of FFVII and FFX behind it.

          • MrFinalgamer

            Isn’t the base story by Nomura? I love the story in KH, but boy, oh boy is it a mess. I sure hope FFXV’s isn’t like that!

          • SOLOmio

            Now that’s good news and it’s kinda of relief cause I don’t wanna spend my time and money with dlc endings and plot the should never been there in the first place!

        • MrFinalgamer

          OMG! Finally someone notices FFV’s greatness! Don’t you love the corny story, and the awesome job system!? =D

  • LunarHaven

    I for one don’t care about handheld versions of games that obviously look better on a TV. I’m 100% for TV gaming, I don’t like epic RPG’s being on small handhelds lol Just my opinion though.

    • Duo Maxwell

      Keep up that faith, because they already said they won’t upgrade the graphic much.

    • AdamBoy64

      I much prefer bigger screens – you’re certainly not alone.

    • Bobby Jennings

      Buy the PSvita TV then.

      Though in this case, it doesn’t matter right

  • David Curry

    this is incredibly disappointing as a vita owner and traditional handheld fan… but i gotta say, the neogaf meltdown is gold from heaven

    • Shippoyasha

      Yeah, the response is just insane in Neogaf, Twitter, 4chan and Playstation site.

      Kind of makes me wonder if Square Enix will have to re-evaluate and think about a Vita port now.

      Mass gamer outrage has swayed minds in the past. It can be interpreted as whiny, but maybe SE may want to save face too.

      • David Curry

        on one hand, i dislike the trend of crowd-raging, and too many people expecting to get their way if they cry (and curse, and “shame”) hard enough. the screaming kids at toys r us, bullying their parents, are all grown up.

        on the other hand, i thought the point of vita was how simple it was to port assets from console games. when it was still called “ngp,” kojima productions showed a super-quick port of mgs4 running on the handheld. a port of type 0 hd can’t be that complicated or costly.

        i like type-0’s style, and wouldn’t mind playing an updated version with a graphics boost on vita.

        • Shippoyasha

          Yeah. I definitely am against shaming to change. It just churns my stomach. But handheld fans got really burned and they deserve a voice.

          Just not a pretty situation at all. And I definitely agree it can come across as whiny from another perspective.

      • Elvick

        SE already claimed to “listen to fans” when they put it on PS4/Xbone. When the people who have kept the hope alive over the years were PSP/Vita (handheld) fans primarily. Since you know… it was a handheld game.

        Not for a second did playing it on PS4 ever cross my mind when I was begging SE for it. ._. *Sigh*

      • Bobby Jennings

        re-evaluate? This is SE you’re talking about.
        They’ll just re-evaluate and not release the game at all in the US.

  • http://zefhar.deviantart.com Zefhar

    I’m very happy about this. I thought I wouldn’t ever see Type-0.

  • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

    Just a note – updated the gallery image with a 1920×1080 version. Apparently Square Enix U.S. media releases suck and Europe media releases rock, because they’re the ones who released it at 1080p.

    Also, got a 5000xsomething version of the logo.

    Edit: Also took the best screen cap of the teaser at the end of the Agito trailer you’ll fine online. =P
