Square Enix is at least still thinking about taking Final Fantasy Type-0 to the West

Friday, 16th August 2013 00:39 GMT By Phil Owen

The PSP-exclusive Final Fantasy Type-0, released in late 2011, exists only in Japanese form, and no plans for a Western release have ever been disclosed. However, new Square Enix West CEO Phil Rogers mentioned responded to one of the many requests for a localized version of the game (courtesy mainly of these folks) in the comments of a blog post, promising that he’s looking into it.

“I’ve seen your Facebook page and I hear your question clearly. I’ve posted on the blog that this is one of the first questions I’m going to tackle. It’s not a quick question to answer but I’m looking into it and I’ll update everyone when I can. But I mentioned (again on the blog) that I don’t want to get hopes up as localising previously released games sometimes isn’t possible when the team have moved onto other projects. But I will look into this thoroughly.”

Not super exciting, but at least it’s on their minds.

HOWEVER, the quote above is pretty similar to one made by Hajima Tabata in November: “We feel strongly about bringing this title to the fans in North America and Europe, so if an opportunity arises that can become a conclusive factor, we are prepared to go into consideration right away.”

Thanks for the heads up, Lengendaryboss.

    I would be happy with just the original Japanese Voice acting and translate everything to English. It couldn’t take anymore then a few months at least or release an updated version for the Vita only and cash in again like SE likes to do rehashing everything. TAKE MY MONEY SE!!!!

    I still think the ideal solution is to just make an HD remaster of it and put it up on PS3, maybe with like Crisis Core and Dissidia or something.

    I heard they were localizing the game, but they stopped at about 90%

    Edit:

    Sorry, confusing it with the fan localization. Carry on . . .
