So, I just played the Type-0 demo...

I gotta say, this game is fantastic. The opening cutscenes were absolutely phenomenal and it already showcased that it's by far the most mature game in the Final Fantasy series along with Final Fantasy Tactics.

The gameplay itself is really great. Though I had a ton of trouble knowing what the hell to do because I don't know a lick of Japanese, it was great and fun, nonetheless. The combat is smooth, fluid and really nice. I love how all 14 party members are completely different, and how you can switch between them on the fly. They're all fun to play as, too; each one can be a valuable asset to the team if you utilize them properly.

The combat is also fun because it's actually difficult. I actually almost died a few times during the tutorial mission. During the boss fight, I had to constantly dodge whilst attacking it from afar via Ace. During some of the missions that I tried, I had party members die in a matter of seconds-- this is very refreshing for the series, considering that pretty much all Final Fantasy games are ridiculously easy until around the 60% or 70% mark in the game.

Aside from that, the visuals are obviously the best ever seen on the PSP. If ported to the Vita or the PS3, Square Enix can just slightly touch up the in-game visuals and they'll be good to go. The pre-rendered in-game cutscenes and the pre-rendered CGI cutscenes are more than good enough to be impressive on any console.

The music is also great, and I have already heard many classic Final Fantasy themes, such as the Victory Theme, the Prelude, and the Chocobo Theme.

All in all, this can easily be the best Final Fantasy in YEARS; it just needs to get localized, and fast.

And personally, I'd love to play this on my PS3. Final Fantasy feels more at home on a console. However, I wouldn't mind if it was on the Vita, either, I just want the damn game in English!

You guys should try the demo!

Needless to say, all but the most ardent of the Lightning Saga fans are pissed at Square Enix.

You want to see Square Enix fans pissed watch them announce type-0 coming over on 3ds or ios. Then you'll see pitchforks.

JP. They localized it, but are never releasing it because no one outside of Japan likes the PSP it seems.

Now that sucks. I've been waiting for Type-0 to be released for Europe for quite some time now.

Noone is going to pay $40 for an iOS game, so it's useless putting it on that paltform. a 3DS version is their best bet. I wouldn't care. I would buy the game on XBox Arcade IF i have to.


In fact, i'd rather they put this on PSN and Xbox so it can be played with proper controller.
