The War Rages On – Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Is Headed To A PC Near You

People simply cannot get enough of Final Fantasy! Even more, people simply cannot get enough of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD and I can absolutely see why; Western audiences had to wait so very long to get their hands on this title and now that they have…they simply don’t want to let it go. The only bad thing about the next generation release of this once PlayStation Portable game is that it was only made available on the PlayStation 4. For people like me who actually have a PlayStation 4 this is absolutely fine, but it is more for those people out there who do not! At the 2015 MSI Computex Gaming Night event, Square Enix announced that they will be releasing the game in all it’s true HD glory for PCs sometime in the near future through Steam which I’m sure you all know about. Hell, I’m sure you all spend most of your money during Steam sales, and now you’ve just got another game to add to the hundreds you’ve yet to even install …

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Review

Education. That irrefutably important facet of life that serves as one of the greatest sources of stress and drama in a young person’s life. Tests, teachers, relationships…war, combat simulations, top secret infiltration missions, murder. You know, all the hallmarks of school life…if your school just happens to also be a military academy. So don your colour coded cape and dive headfirst into your studies, because they may well be the only thing that keeps you alive in a world at war. Welcome to Class Zero, the most prestigious group from the most prestigious (and perhaps only) learning facility in all of Orience. Comprised of the best of the best, this group of teenagers is tasked with top secret military operations at the whim of their superiors and their so called Mother, the woman who provided them with their special abilities. Thus this less than traditional family spend the majority of their school days out on the battlefield, slaughtering the enemy militia who, in turn, throw some slaughter right back. Sure it isn’t the most educationally …

Hands-On With “Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae”

October, 2011 was when the original “Final Fantasy Type-0” was released on the PlayStation Portable over in Japan. That version of the highly sought-after video game was never released outside of the great country to the lamentation of all the fans who longed for the game with every fibre of their being. It’s now 2015 and that game has finally been released around the world on Sony’s next generation console the PlayStation 4.

Square Enix, the wonderful Japanese publisher and developer behind the game, have continued to provide the world with updates on the game through trailers, screenshots and just general news for months on end.

Final Fantasy XV and Type-0 HD Net Some New Screenshots

Though it’s been quite the wait for the not-so-Final franchise to receive its next addition, we’ve still got a ways to go until both XV and Type-0 HD hit the shelves and, subsequently, our consoles. In the meantime, Square Enix has released a few more screenshots to remind you that these titles look cool. This time around, we get to see Noctis jump into the thick of things and take on some generic soldier types, who I assume serve as the cannon fodder in this adventure. Seriously, henchmen need a union or something. Especially when they’re fighting against a Final Fantasy protagonist, and one who can teleport no less…or do a mid battle handstand. Shifting perspective a little, you might also wanna take a look at what Type-0 has to offer, namely images of students Eight, King and Sice (aka the coolest looking member of Class Zero). FF fans may also recognise some franchise regulars who may or may not be Ifrit, Shiva and Bahamut…they are…there’s nametags and everything.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD and Final Fantasy XV Net New Trailers

Courtesy of a little shindig known as Jump Festa 2014, the duo of upcoming Final Fantasy titles have received new trailers. Highlighting some of the title’s fast paced combat, Type-0’s trailer presents Class Zero’s struggle against those who would attack the Dominion of Rubrum, as well as the trials they faces as students of war. The innate maturity of which is captured by the haunting song that overlays the trailer’s opening, though it later fades into a more triumphant tune, not that it makes it any less sad. Not to be outdone, Final Fantasy XV also presents some of its exciting features and familiar faces, complete with full English voiceover. Additionally, you may enjoy looking at the towns that populate the game and create the world at large and showcase the more industrial vibe of the game…also there’s a giant Eidolon. It’s name is Titan and it’s big. -30-

Final Fantasy Type-0 – Traitors Of Orience Trailer

Like any real-life war, propaganda is used to boost the morale of a certain side’s men and women while simultaneously breaking the spirit of the enemy. Despite “Final Fantasy Type-0” being, well…a fantasy title, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have an air of truth about it. Coming only a day after the “Orience News Special Report” trailer which showed just a few of the main cast in a positive light, Square Enix delivers us another trailer which introduces us to more of the crew but is set out like an enemy propaganda film, showing these freedom fighters as cowards and backstabbers. “Final Fantasy Type-0” is set for a release in 2015 on the PlayStation 4 both in and outside of Japan but seeing as how it’s still a little while away, I’d say just enjoy what trailers we have right now and prepare for one hell of an RPG. -30-

A Look At…Final Fantasy Type-0 HD

A few days ago, we at SnapThirty were given the chance to visit the office of Bandai Namco Australia and take a look at the upcoming Final Fantasy Type-0 HD. Though not set to launch until March of 2015, we were also able to play a pre-release version of the game and get a feel for the next instalment of the FF franchise. Without getting too much into spoiler territory, the intro to Type-0 is quite the intense experience. Leaning heavily into the theme of war, the game presents a raw, emotional opening that isn’t all heroism and success. There really isn’t any majesty depicted in the world, with all of the magic and amazing technology being utilised for a violent purpose. As it is focused on a war between two powerful countries, the game does an excellent job of creating a propaganda feel to some cutscenes. Through a film reel grain filter and near emotionless narrator, the explanation of events past comes across with a historical air. This helps to set the mood of Type-0, and add information to …

Dubbed “The World at War”, said trailer provides a glimpse at the chaos that threatens to tear Orience apart. A turbulent war of nations threatens to tear the land apart. Fuelled with propaganda, this show of power from the Militesi ruling incumbent, Marshal Cid, attempts to justify the Empire’s actions and discredit Class Zero, Rubrum and the other states. -30-
