did my party just try to hit on someone
I think I read a fanfic about this once
If you’re a huge Final Fantasy fan like me, then surely you’ve heard of the news from TGS earlier today/last night!
Square Enix has finally announced a release date for Final Fantasy Type-0 HD - March 17th for North America, and March 20th for Europe.
The company’s YouTube page has just released a TGS trailer for the game - all in Japanese, but IGN has leaked an English 25-minute gameplay video that they’re currently in trouble for (at least that’s what I heard, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this were true).
The game will come with a voucher that’ll redeem a playable demo for the much-anticipated Final Fantasy XV, which has also been graced with a TGS trailer that I’ll be posting separately in just a bit.
Excited yet? I’ve been excited since the game came out in Japan for the PSP nearly 3 years ago. It was originally released for the PSP in October 2011, with plans for an overseas release - but due to declining PSP sales the project was scrapped. An HD remake for current-gen (PS4 and Xbox One) was announced at this year’s E3.
Not sure how I feel about the English voices though - but I like Rem and Seven’s so far. Ace’s…ehhh. The extra voices - soldiers talking on the comm, the narrator in the beginning - sound kinda mechanical to me, but I’m trying not to complain so much because I’ve been waiting for localization news for so long and I finally have it. Maybe I just need to listen to more footage? I’ve played the original PSP version a few times so I may be used to the Japanese voices too. Who knows…but at least the game’s release is just six months away!
Square Enix has been notoriously quiet about Final Fantasy XV (previously Final Fantasy Versus XIII) in the…I think it’s been 8 years since it’s been announced, but they finally opened up…a bit, about it at this year’s TGS with a trailer showing some gameplay and cutscenes.
Interestingly, Tetsuya Nomura, who was previously attached to the project as director, has been replaced by Hajime Tabata (known for Final Fantasy Type-0, Crisis Core). Nomura is currently focusing on other projects, mainly Kingdom Hearts III (another game that’s been kept under wraps by Square Enix, but at least we know it’s being worked on now).
Tabata has expressed that FFXV will focus on brotherhood, which can sorta be seen in the footage of this trailer and this recently released official artwork (cute, they’re having a little roadside barbecue). I think he also mentioned that it’s going to be like a “road trip movie”…which can also be seen with the car and all of them huddled in it.
No news of a release date has been announced yet as the game is still well under development, but there will be a playable demo called Episode Duscae that’ll come with the release of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD next march.
Looks pretty fun, and I’m excited for it!
