Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, the remastered PS4 and Xbone port of the PSP original, launched today. (As a result, FFXV footage has been spilling all over the internet, including video of the eidolon available in the demo. Beware of spoilers.)
In case you’ve missed it: we’ve previously detailed just how Final Fantasy Type-0 HD differs from the original, and there are videos which compare the updated visuals with the old.
Square Enix has one last promotional video for the game, which you can watch above. In addition, a clip was recently released that hints at a possible sequel.
Here’s what the company has to say about its newly released FF title:
Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Available Today
Square Enix announced that one of its most highly anticipated action role-playing games, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, is now available on disc and digitally for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft.
Set within the war-torn world of Orience, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD features a fast-paced combat system and a mature storyline. Players step into the fray as Class Zero, a group of 14 cadets from an elite military academy in the Dominion of Rubrum. The country is being overrun by the aggressive Militesi Empire, and players must strategically utilize the full range of characters’ powerful abilities to combat invading forces.
“Western audiences are the reason we decided to bring Final Fantasy Type-0 to the high definition consoles,” said Director Hajime Tabata. “We also wanted to invite players to experience a small taste of what’s to come in Final Fantasy XV.”
- High Definition Visuals: The world of Orience is brought to life in rich and vivid detail, coming to modern consoles in gorgeous, newly rendered HD visuals.
- Customizable Parties: Choose from 14 playable members of Class Zero to control, each with distinctive weapons, abilities, and combat styles.
- High Stakes Battles: A bloody, action-packed battle system where every attack carries the weight of mortality. Enter a world where a common fire spell incinerates foes, and the deadly Killsight is an instant fatality.
- A Mature Final Fantasy for a New Age: The Crystals fuel the flames of war, shedding light on young heroes who must cope with decisions that will mean the difference between life and death, and the rise and fall of nations.
- Japanese Voice-Over Included: Play the game with English or Japanese voice-over audio with English, French, or Spanish subtitles.
- Remote Play: Supported for the PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system.
The Day One Edition of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD also includes a download code for Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae, a demo of the highly anticipated Final Fantasy XV title taking place within the Duscae region. Players control the protagonist, Noctis, as he travels with his companions across the vast area where they battle monsters and enemies, and survive treacherous dungeons.
Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is now available in North America for $59.99. The exclusive Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae downloadable demo is available only while supplies last for the disc product. The digital version of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD comes bundled with Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae for a limited period.
