Jason Clement posted a article in Industry NewsFinal Fantasy Type-0 is a game that RPG fans have been wanting to see released outside of Japan for a long time, and now Square Enix is making dreams come true today by announcing that an HD version of the game will be localized for release in North America on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game's director Hajime Tabata mentioned that the voice of Western gamers was instrumental in the decision to release the title State-side. Also announced for Western release is the currently-in-production Final Fantasy Agito (already released in Japan) for iOS and Android devices. Agito features a war-torn land called Orience, where players will create their own customized character (including choosing gender, hairstyle, and more) as they aim to become Agito, which is the prophesied savior of Orience. The game will be provided as a free download with in-app purchases. For now, neither game has a confirmed release date or window, which seems to allude that they may be 2015 (or beyond) titles, but it's exciting to know that both are on the way nonetheless.

Jason Clement posted a article in SonyIt isn't often that a big Final Fantasy game doesn't make its way westward, but that's exactly what happened with Final Fantasy Type-0, a PSP game that came out two years ago in Japan. Originally titled Final Fantasy Agito XIII, the game underwent a name change sometime throughout its development and was also shifted from being a mobile title to a PSP title. Of course, the PSP scene was largely dead (or so Square believed) in the West at that point, so Square Enix saw little point in bringing it over, though much of it had been localized according to 1UP's Jeremy Parish. However, Square Enix's Hajime Tabata recently aired some news about Type-0 as well as the newly announced Final Fantasy Agito in an interview with 1UP, saying that the latter will definitely be localized. However, he cautions that a game being localized does not guarantee a release in the West, as Type-0's situation showed. The good news is that Tabata says that fan enthusiasm for Type-0 as well as the shifting portable market have caught the company's eye, and though it has yet to be greenlit for a full localization, it's in the final stages of planning and he hopes to bring it to the West through PSN. Hopefully it happens, as a number of Final Fantasy fans have long clamored for the game to release outside of Japan, and it was critically acclaimed by Japanese review outlets. Time will tell if Tabata's hopes pay off. Would you want to play Final Fantasy Type-0?
