    Default Final Fantasy Type-0 is new name for Final Fantasy Agito XIII

    Final Fantasy Type-0 is new name for Final Fantasy Agito XIII


    What was to be the PlayStation Portable entry in Square Enix's "Fabula Nova Crystallis" series is now considered a spin-off title with a new name: Final Fantasy Type-0. Director Hajime Tabata resolved the mysterious trademark filings at Square Enix's 1st Production Division event in Japan today, noting that the change from "Final Fantasy Agito XIII" seemed appropriate given how different the more action-oriented design of Type-0 had become from Final Fantasy XIII.

    Though it will now distance itself from XIII, Type-0 will continue to embrace the PSP -- in fact, when it ships in Japan this Summer, it'll come on two UMDs. According to Siliconera's translation, the doubled storage will accommodate over 30 voiced characters. Judging by earlier trailers, Final Fantasy Type-0 will also feature multiplayer battles.

    We'll contact Square Enix to learn more about its plans for North America.

    So, basically it has nothing to do with 13 now.

    Actually the combat system in 13 was pretty bland... Not bad but action sounds better for the way they made that game unless they're completely changing the story / graphics then it should be ok.

    I also prefer more mellow games on psp, so action actually might be a bad idea on second thought, my hands tend to cramp on SFA3MAX, YS 7 and Peace Walker during long play sessions.

    It really is all in how you look at it. If it is still part of the Crystallis series then it is still set in the XIII Universe.

    And the fighting system for XIII was pretty much just a small upgrade from the original ATB from the VII/VIII games. So it will be interesting to see what more action-oriented will mean.

    I guess it means less automatic?
    In mean in IV/V/VI/VII/VIII/IX you at least had to think about the actions you select. While in XIII, with the exception of some boss fights, you might as well select auto battle. All the thinking goes into what optimas you select.

    I'm glad there's finally some timeframe for a release date. I've been waiting a while for this game.

    That doesnt make sense why would they release this in umds when
    the NPG is coming very soon
    i mean come on sony what are you doing

    and for type-0
    type-1
    type-2 etc
    hmm
    thats not really worth it
    they are expanding on this series a little bit to much
    but at least FFXIII-2 looks amazing and versus is going to be another versoin of 7

    Testing it so it doesn't get hacked so easily like the original PSP maybe?

    I agree, I mean VII was just really popular to warrant it's spinoffs at least.

    this game has been so badly delayed that they've already started work on final fantasy 14. thats why they dropped the '13'

    I think 'action-oriented' means it'll be real-time.
    Kinda like Phantasy Star Portable, I'm sure.
