As a self-professed Final Fantasy fan, Erren created Nova Crystallis in 2009 as a place to collect the latest information on her favorite series. As owner and Editor-in-Chief, she also spends her time writing for RPG Site as Senior US Editor.
Final Fantasy Type-0′s localization has been on the table since 2010 if an employee’s resume is to be believed.
Alongside his work for titles such as Crisis Core: FFVII, Nier, and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers, he has a listening for Final Fantasy Type-0 which has been in the works from “December 2010 to present.”
This jives with previous reports that localization had been worked on as recent as the beginning of last year. Previously, several voice actors had come out and contacted Operation Suzaku with news that FF Type-0′s localization was nearly finished, but Square Enix had decided to put the project on hold due to the PSP’s declining market share in the west.
At this point Square Enix hasn’t really said much, aside director Hajime Tabata having admitted messing around with a HD port at some point over a year ago. Is there still some shred of hope? It’s possible this employee’s CV is outdated, but we’d like to believe otherwise. Of course, only time will tell.
Square Enix has updated their Facebook page with the first official look at the Noctis perfume teased a while back.
Curiously, it’s listed as FINAL FANTASY eau du toilette Noctis – with no mention of Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Such a detail is notable because both the FFXIII and Advent Children versions both specify their title of origin, as seen on the official product page here. Merchandise manager Hidemi Matsuzuka promises more information will be shared soon. The current release timeframe for this product is sometime this summer.

The character creation tool in a Realm Reborn has seen some updates since we first saw its reveal last year.
Project Manager Fernehalwes updated the official FFXIV blog with a bit of an update on the situation – the team having promised even more options in the character creator system since its inception. New options appearing in Phase 3 will include height sliders, more varied color options for things like hair color, and the option to pose your character in other locations including Ul’dah and Limsa Lomminsa.
With FFXIV set to steal the show this E3, the team is hard at work on preparations for additional promotional content. The game’s release date and collector’s edition details are expected by the end of the month, as well as Phase 3 beta by the start of June.
If it wasn’t obvious already, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will be heading to E3 this year.
As quite possibly the star of Square Enix’s booth space, the company is teasing quite a few reveals for its revamped MMO over on the Lodestone forums. As preparation is in full swing alongside the imminent launch of Beta Phase 3, the team is planning for several surprises – including some “exciting battle content” that attendees will be able to sample at the show.
Although E3 itself isn’t open to the public, Square Enix plans on releasing a wealth of new videos, live stream entertainment, and of course some exciting announcements. The show will run from June 11-13 – that’s less than a month away – so stay tuned!
Square Enix has posted a bit of a “first impressions” video with several highlights from guests who took part in their Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX event a few weeks back.
Square Enix Europe hosted the event in London where fans were able to see the English version of the game, having seen its Japanese release a month earlier. The video they’ve uploaded today is more of a promotional trailer – complete with thoughts from those who attended. Check it out below.
