Kitase confirms Type-0 localization – Update

November 27th, 2011 by Tony Garsow

Speaking with Spanish site Vandal, Final Fantasy series producer Yoshinori Kitase commented on the status of Final Fantasy Type-0’s localization. The following is a translated excerpt from the interview:

“Type-0, as you must know, was launched in Japan last month, so it’s over. We are working on version for the U.S. and Europe and will know something soon. Versus is not out yet in Japan, but last January there was a trailer. We are working hard to finish it. In the coming months we will say something more.”


No word yet on a release date, but now you can breathe easy folks.

Update: Other European websites have reported that Kitase “can’t say anything yet” about localization. A slip? A farce? We’ll be looking into it, but you might have to take this story with a grain of salt. (I’m not taking down the video yet!)

Update #2: It appears the original site that posted the article has stealth-edited the information about Final Fantasy Type-0 out of the article. Whether this was intentional or instructed by Square-Enix for prematurely revealing information remains to be seen.

    Sweet, I was a bit worried that Type-0 wouldn’t get localized despite the good amount of units it has sold. That game is too great not to be localized. The demo was fantastic and I’m sure I would’ve enjoyed it a dozen times more if I had more of an idea of what I was doing.

  • Shiva

    YAY!!!!!! 😀 😀
    I’ve been playing both of the demos and i was really hoping for an english version.

  • Gexus

    YAY! Wow!

    More confirmation that not only are we actually getting an English version of Type-0, but Versus is getting all the attention it needs from Square-Enix as well, they’re finally finishing it!

    This certainly brightened up my day!

  • lalik

    Alright! I was beginning to lose hope on this game!

  • Cody

    Dang finally I can rest easy.

    But I’m worried its another fluke =/

  • Envodeferym

    You also have to think that with the new demo being released that some kind of news about Type-0 was going to be released. They wouldn’t just release a new demo for a game that’s already out, just because. Anyway, hope that this is genuine and not another farce…like the last time.

  • Cody


    I’m curious about the demo too. But, it’s kinda odd releasing a new demo in Japan after the official release of the game? furthermore the fact it’s a second demo. Kinda makes me think it was just another demo to get more customers in Japan interested in the game, if the first demo wasn’t good enough for them. All hopes to a localization! ><

  • caleb

    finally! i hope its not a mistranslation or something. i have both demos, the newest one actually lets you breed a chocobo, i NEED this game.

  • dan hibiki

    Yeah!! Now I’m happy!

  • I am fluent in Spanish and English, and I have seen the original site (in Spanish) and this is not an *exact* translation, but it conveys the same ideas as the original, its just some things might have been more exact if they were translated just a little different, but this one is the same, just sounds a little awkward in the wording and such.

    Pft. That was long. I am really excited about this localization though, playing through only a little of the demo (my Japanese is, well, non-existent at this point) but even those few minutes proved it is an astonishing game worthy of the work to localize it.

  • gmoyajp

    faylo right!

    it’s falls news but eather way am sure there will be a USA release in the future or in the months to come i say over march 2012, will have some news or later then that.

    am sure it will be release one way or another.

  • Tony

    Yes, it’s not an exact translation, but the site itself has a rather good reputation. However, if there is any information that confirms beyond a reasonable doubt that this is incorrect, we’ll go ahead and amend the post and keep everyone updated with developments!

  • Shadowcatdoll09

    I hope this is true I want this game to come to the US so badly!

  • Square wouldn’t have any legal right to have that information removed if it wasn’t true, so something triggered them 😛

    *falls to floor laughing*

  • Just a little more information on the edit on Vandal. It now says that “There is currently not anything confirmed for Europe.”
    As opposed to earlier when it said
    “We are working on localizing it for America and Europe.”
    I would like to say that this would be quite an awkward mis-translation, in the updated version, it dropped a country. I truly think that this was a request from Square themselves.

    update 3 update 3 update 3 pleeaase!
