Final Fantasy Type-0 HD’s Ending Hints at Type-1 Sequel

It seems like spoilers from Square Enix’s upcoming Final Fantasy Type-0 HD are already here.

Featured above, you can view a video recorded from the very end of the game, just prior to the end credits, so please be forewarned there are SPOILERS in the above video.

However, the trailer gives us a massive hint at a potential sequel. This corroborates with game director Hajime Tabata going on the record as saying he’d like to make Final Fantasy Type-1, before making Final Fantasy XVI.

When the game was originally developed back in 2011, it was poised as an essential restart for the series. It’s also worth mentioning that back in 2011, Final Fantasy Type-1, Type-2, and Type-3 were all trademarked. Is Square Enix looking to create another trilogy, akin to the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy?

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is launching on both Playstation 4 and Xbox One this coming Tuesday, March 17th.

    Hey, maybe they’ll use XV’s engine and not HD a PSP game? Just a thought.
    What I would want is a trilogy for the Vita, but SE is allergic to my happiness apparently.

    I mean I wouldn’t buy it, but seeing something different on the PSN store wouldn’t hurt.

    This is a bit worrying. Square Enix doesn’t do a consistently good job of making direct sequels to their Final Fantasy iterations. X-2 and the XIII sequels bear a generally negative opinion, and XII’s DS sequel isn’t really talked about.

    I might be a bit naively excited, but I have yet to actually play Type-0.

    I’ve heard plenty of people consider X-2 and XIII-2 (bleh, that feels horrible to type) better than their counterparts.

    Then again, this is the Final Fantasy fanbase we’re talking about.

    XIII-2 and X-2 do certain things better, I’ll agree with that, but generally (in my opinion) they do other things worse. XIII-2 may have ironed out some kinks in the original XIII battle system, however, the main characters are less appealing, and the narrative can be a little bit murky at times. X-2 returns to a good jobsystem/ATB battle style, but the entire game’s aesthetic was pretty annoying to me at times.

    honestly XIII-2 and Lightning Returns were a lot better then the original the series got better with each entry in my opinion can’t say the same about X-2 though.

    The problems with XII-2 is that it’s on the DS where as XII players would be on Sony consoles for the most part. Also being a SRPG less people are likely to be keen.

    Personally I enjoyed X much more over X-2 but the latter had an interesting battle system (characters can change their class during battle though once I found something that worked I never changed it). It felt much less challenging than the first and the story felt very off – it had one or two good moments but otherwise a solid ‘meh’. I never felt that X needed a sequel and the game didn’t feel like it was aimed at me anyway.

    If TYPE-0 is as good as people says and the devs stay the course and don’t do a FF13 all over again, the FF series might have a chance of coming back on top again. Let’s hope the same for FF15

    I agree, the two sequels are better in terms of gameplay mechanics, but the thing about XIII was that the story really ENDED in the first game. It was bittersweet, sure, but the characters earned their happy ending by learning that they were capable of more than they thought. Then XIII-2 rolls around and it literally undid a couple of characters’ development from the first game, and the main protagonists didn’t really have much satisfying development beyond that. Lightning Returns comes around and all the characters need to RE-LEARN the meaning of hope and that they can do anything if they try. There were a couple of moments in Lightning Returns that were done really well, regardless, however, and XIII-2 did have one of the better franchise villains, in my opinion.

    X had the same problem in it’s sequel. The first game finished the narrative at the end of the game, but then the sequel comes and tries to pick up the finished narrative, and ti just doesn’t really work out, in my opinion.

    Great, so that can come out and be unlocalized for 5 years too?
