It’s been nearly a year since the release of Final Fantasy Type-0 in Japan, and other than a few rumblings that didn’t amount to anything — we’re still waiting on an announcement for localization abroad. Perhaps an announcement of no localization.
Things have been mum about the PSP game — other than a potential update for PlayStation Vita, which hasn’t really gone anywhere on this side of the pond. Over the last several months, I’ve seen the chatter about this game start to fizzle and fade in favor of pecking at Final Fantasy Versus XIII breadcrumbs. Not a good thing.
Are we approaching the point of no return? Will the anticipation wear off to a point where the localization is no longer anticipated? What sort of precedent does this set for future Final Fantasy games? I think one thing is for certain: the quieter we are about the game’s localization status, the greater the chance it has to slip through the cracks.
I didn’t expect the day to come again where major Final Fantasy games were without localization, and hopefully, that’s something we can avoid.
