Ever since Final Fantasy Type-0 released in Japan in 2011, Final Fantasy fans have been clamoring for a localized version. Those fans won’t have to wait much longer as Square Enix announced today, during their E3 announcements, plans to release an HD remaster of Final Fantasy Type-0 on the PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe. Here is the press release:

Originally released in Japan in 2011 for the PlayStation®Portable handheld entertainment system, FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0 will be coming to the West as an HD remaster for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. In addition, FINAL FANTASY AGITO, already available in Japan, is confirmed for a Western release on iOS and Android devices.

“The voice of our Western fans was instrumental in the development of FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0, and we’re very excited to release this title soon,” said Hajime Tabata, director of FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0. “The new PlayStation®4 system and Xbox One gaming and entertainment platform have really helped to re-envision this dynamic and turbulent world of Orience.”

Type-0 was announced as part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis, a collection of titles that were all in development around the same time. Although not all of the titles are directly related, they share a common mythos. The other Fabula Nova Crystallis games include the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, Final Fantasy Agito (a prequel to Type-0), and Final Fantasy XV (although it was known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII at the time).

Final Fantasy Type-0 takes place in a world divided into four nations. Each of the nations is blessed with a crystal that grants them unique powers. The four nations coexisted peacefully under a peace treaty until a high commander of one of the nations broke the treaty by staging an invasion using advanced military technology.  A group of highly skilled students at a magic academy organize themselves to defend their nation from this foreign threat.

    From PSP to PS4? Seems like the Vita would be a more logical fit. If it was designed to be portable experience. Ill still probably end up buying it though.
