Rumour – Unannounced Final Fantasy localisation in the works

Thursday, 20th October 2011 05:32 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Veteran voice actor Steve Blum has apparently prematurely outed an unannounced Final Fantasy localisation.

“Just wrapped up some Marvel stuff. Also started on King for a new Final Fantasy. Look for it mates!” Blum tweeted, reportedly deleting the message almost immediately – but not before it was screencapped, although NovaCrystallis could not confirm the grab’s veracity.

The tweet’s rapid removal suggests the game Blum is working on is under wraps, with the most obvious contender being Final Fantasy Type-0.

The PSP title has not been confirmed for Western release, with the relatively low sales of PSP games outside Japan considered a risk factor by many major publishers.

Under its former title, Final Fantasy Agito XIII, Type-0 was considered part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis series and therefore a major entry in the XIII sequence.

Steve Blum is a familiar voice to game and anime fans, appearing in Dragon Age: Origins, Bulletstorm, Madworld, Call of Duty, Samurai Champloo, Cowboy bebop and Naruto, among many other works.

    Hell yeah. Let’s have it. If possible, include the Japanese audio track as well to go with English subs.

    @1 – on a game that’s already two UMD’s?!? I seriously doubt you’ll see it have dual audio. UNLESS they did the smart thing and made an HD version of it for PS3. That will actually sell (and would probably have room for the dual audio…which is still no guarantee it’d have it, but there’d probably be room). Even a Vita version has a chance of selling well. But releasing Type 0 on PSP in the West is going to cost more than they’ll make. You could make the greatest game in the series and if it’s on PSP, it’s not going to sell as much as a console version over here.

    One can always hope. And yeah, it would be way more popular on PS3, still happy that I get to use my PSP again although playing on PS3 is much more comfortable.
