Final Fantasy Type-0 still isn’t coming to the west anytime soon.
That harsh reality was reenforced at Tokyo Game Show, where several sources in and outside of Square Enix confirmed the continued non-existence of the game’s localization. According to 1UP’s Jeremy Parish, “no less than four people I talked to at TGS made it very clear that the English version of Type-0 is moribund, at least in its current form.”
All of this despite various reports that have pointed toward some sort of localization or another.
Perhaps the only good news to come out of this debacle is a separate confirmation that Final Fantasy X HD, which was revealed last year for PS3 and PS Vita, is still in development. It may be slow in coming “for some reasons” that were not specified.
Final Fantasy Type-0 released to critical acclaim and impressive sales when it released last October in Japan. Since then the game has seen adaptations into novels, manga and other merchandise with an Ultimate Hits version is due out on December 6th for ¥2,940.
