Final Fantasy Type-Next concept art surfaces at Hong Kong PlayStation event By Andrew Ip on March 20, 2015 at 9:46 AM

During a special Final Fantasy Type-0 HD PlayStation event in Hong Kong this week, lucky visitors were able to catch a glimpse of some concept art from the next instalment in the Final Fantasy Type series.

The newly revealed concept art shows a setting akin to medieval Japan, however these are early concept shots which may or may not be representative of the current vision for the game. Nonetheless, the new images definitely stir up some excitement for the next Final Fantasy Type series game.

Without further ado, here are the concept art photos.

Note: Some concept art shots are blended in with real-life shots of the city of Hong Kong, these should not to be mistaken with game art.

    Cool! I hope we get a Type-1 that’s made with the luminous engine and for ps4 and not as a handheld. In some way I wish that Type-0 was being worked on much later for ps vita or ps4 so the game wouldn’t have been held back by the technology back then. But, oh well 🙂

  • Wazi the pa

    Feudal Japan themes mixed with modern Japan themes… And ALSO Samurai! Damn, that’s a badass combination.

  • Tom

    I got my Type-0 Collector’s Edition! (I live in EU)

  • stevenm281

    Nice!!!

  • I’ll get into it as long a they focus more on characters and develop the party as people. Plus lay off some of the army stuff. Rather just have a band of allies without the yes sir no sir stuff. And this time we dont need 13 characters.

  • Yes it is. I’m tired of knight and kings and vikings.

  • Adam Hedquist

    Where do you live? I live in Sweden and I haven’t got my copy yet and it’s evening here soon 🙁 I just recently wrote to the Square enix eu support about it, but I’ll probably won’t get an answer until Monday or Tuesday. It’s sucks!

  • It doesn’t feel like a FF imo.

  • Daniel Masterson

    Looks like an FF imo.

  • Ryu-Chan

    I’ve always wanted an FF set in a feudal-Japan sort of world. I’m really interested to see how they will mix the usual fantasy themes with the oriental environment.

  • Krijn van Alten

    Me too! Moreover, I got two while i ordered just one.

  • Noneofyourbusiness

    Cool! Even though a sequel had been talked about, I didn’t really expect one.

  • I don’t wanna talk about untill FFXV comes out u.u
    Hahaha.

  • Also they need to put this on PS4 from the start so that we can see a whole game of type0 calibur width a huge world map and have it on ps4. Type0 world a good hail back to the ff9 days.

  • Maybe each game will start a different class. I just hope they don’t try to pretend ace is evil now or some shit like in dmc4 tales of symphonia 2 and others.

  • LuxAlike

    Wow, awesome.

  • Tom

    Lucky you!

  • Sothe Zephyr

    and….xb1…..but….okay…il just….chill….over here….

  • Sothe Zephyr

    Looks awesome! Different from type-0…..idk im skeptical……..its….too different from classic FF formula….and dont jump on me “CHANGE IS A THING! ITS GOOD WAH WAH” stfu i know >.> Im just nervous….that i wont enjoy the new style….but if its a game akin to LR im down >:D Ace Returns <3 Oh god and in that bad ass armor too <3 Make it happen SE..him against Arecia and Gala for their treatment of Orience <3 ….i can dream lol

  • Tom

    I ordered from a local retailer, not from SE store. Usually the games are in stock 1 day before the official release so they have time to send it out. I hope you’ll get your copy soon.

  • Krijn van Alten

    Not of I have to pay 200 instead of 100 euro’s!

  • Krijn van Alten

    I orders it from the EU store too, bug I live in the Netherlands, which is a little closer to GB than Sweden. Did you got a mail about the fact that the order was shipped? I got that mail two days ago.

  • Tom

    I was lucky with a Resident Evil 6 purchase I made on zavvi.com. I wasn’t logged in when I placed the game in my cart. I started to make the payment on the items in my cart, it prompted me to log in. I entered my card details but it couldn’t finish the process. I tried my other card, with no avail. I logged out and in, and while being logged in I tried the paying process again. This time it worked. When I checked on my internet bank, I saw that they are taking money from both of my cards and later I received confirmation letter. 1 about a purchase, and later 2 letters about the 2 games I bought. But there was only 1 in my cart with 2 attempts to pay. Later they released one of the money. Okay, this might be a bit confusing at first. So it works like they pre-charge you or I don’t know how it’s called, that amount of money is reserved. Then later you are charged. But in this case only one of the reserved money was really charged and the other was released. But I ended up with 2 copies of Resident Evil 6. Sorry for the long story, but I though I might share.

  • Adam Hedquist

    Okey. Yeah, I got a mail 2-3 days ago that said something like my order has been successfully shipped. It’s so weird. Can you imagine how sad and frustrated I am? It really sucks when I see that people have been playing the demo the whole week and I haven’t even got my copy yet. 🙁

  • Adam Hedquist

    No, I don’t want that either. I hope in type-1 he’ll actually be the ”main” character, unlike in type-0 where they mostly focused on Machina and Rem. I didn’t even like Machina as a character, playing as him was fun though.

  • Adam Hedquist

    Thank you. I hope so too. I ordered it back in December so the frustration is unbelievable.

  • Noctis Pendragon

    A FF rarely feels like a FF (since FF VII) until you play it hours.

  • I agree I want them to have a small focused cast. We don’t need 13 characters s to train evenly. I just want about 4 or 6. Maybe they get the best story wise characters in agito and type0 and have them as the stars in the sequel.

  • They’ll likely do both. Maybe ecen wii by the time it comes out.

    A footage from the last SE FINAL FANTASY College Tour .

  • Sothe Zephyr

    It would be weird to release Type-0 on both but its sequel on only one console……

  • Exactly.

  • Andos58

    Glad I’m not the only one .Damn Machina stole all spotlights,that why I skipped 80% cutscenes of the 2nd playthrough .

  • Andrew Ip

    Like Tomb Raider right? 😛

  • Frostofthecwsw

    Not to be rude, just pointing this out in case you didn’t know: the TYPE games are MEANT to be abnormal Final Fantasy games. It’s Tabata’s thing. He really wants to keep making Type games whether they are direct sequels or not. They aren’t part of the normal numbered series for a reason. They are TECHNICALLY a spinoff.

  • Seeing as online rpgs have become the best money maker and crowd pleaser other than cell phone games I bet a type0 game will end up an MMORPG.

  • Justice V

    Think the modern HK stuff was just images of the game overlaid onto HK since the event was there, but not an indication the game would have modern HK settings in it.

  • I agree but this one is bizzare visually. 😛

  • stevenm281

    What is so bizarre about it?

  • LittleDoom

    Doubt it, square Enix already have their money maker mmorpg

  • Well then hopefully since this one won’t be online or handheld based I hope it’ll be less mission based. Games always seem short when they put what chapter you’re on or number mission. I want it ot be ff9 or a tales game. Where the cast just helps people and slowly stumble onto the stumble then they focus on it and try to solve it. The military and class thing is so boring.

  • Sothe Zephyr

    Well I know but okay?….I didn’t say that they weren’t, what i did say was that it is very different from Type-0’s world, which in and of itself, was pretty regular FF, albeit more realistic with architecture, etc. Im nervous that I won’t enjoy this asian style world, which isn’t really a worry as iv grown to love the art, but nevertheless; I didn’t TECHNICALLY say the TYPE games weren’t a spinoff or wasn’t supposed to be different. I expressed my uncertainty.

  • Sothe Zephyr

    Also because this will definitely be focused on Ace, like Lighting in LR. Well most likely based on “Rise from Ashes” and the concepts

  • Krijn van Alten

    I just got the mail form Square Enix back: I can get the second copy for free!

  • Tom

    WOW, now THAT’s a lucky case. What are you planning to do with it? Keep it and sell it later?

  • Krijn van Alten

    Sell it of course! I already have one, so I don’t need a second CE. But I bet there are some people who are intrested in having one, especially with the XV demo in it!
