3rd Birthday director wanting to make sequel, framework for Type-0 sequel in place

Tuesday, 29th November 2011 08:58 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Square Enix’s Hajime Tabata has said he wants to make a sequel to third Parasite Eve game the 3rd Birthday, but work on a potential follow-up to Final Fantasy Type-0 may come before it.

Speaking to Famitsu, Tabata, who directed PSP games Type-0 and 3rd Birthday, said he’d like to make a fourth installment in the Parasite Eve series – something producer Tetsuya Nomura has already said should be in HD – but noted Square development policy will require him to work on a Type-0 sequel first.

In fact, a framework for it is already in place for what the publisher’s calling a sub-series, according to the developer.

Square has already registered domains for Type-1, Type-2 and Type-3.

Type-0 is out now in Japan, but has never been announced for western release. The 3rd Birthday released in April in Europe.

Thanks, Andriasang.

    Now just you wait a second, Tabata-san. Before doing anything else, please make the Western version of Type-0.

    I have a Japanese copy of Type-0, but I’m still to touch it. Need to actually find somewhere first that’s translated it before I play, probably.

    I’ve played both of those a decade ago, I’m saying based on their recent works you’ll be getting something along the lines of Mindjack.
