Final Fantasy Type-0 Western Localization Teased By Scenario Director

While I prepared to resume operations after Hurricane Sandy forced me to go offline for safety reasons, Gamespot was conducting an interview faaaaar from the mess with Final Fantasy Type-0 scenario director Hajime Tabata. Much of the interview focused on his efforts with Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy Type-0. Near the tail-end of the interview, editor Jonathan Toyad asked Tabata if there were still any plans to release Type-0, a PSP game. Tabata replied:

“Due to market reasons, we are taking a clean slate in terms of our plans. We feel strongly about bringing this title to the fans in North America and Europe, so if an opportunity arises that can become a conclusive factor, we are prepared to go into consideration right away.”

In other words, make noise and hope for the best. Realistically however, this is a PSP game. Right now the PSP market in the west is all but dead with focus shifting to the Vita. I’m guessing when Tabata says “if an opportunity arises that can become a conclusive factor…,” not only could this be about market status (i.e. what games are being released), it could pertain to how exactly they can deliver this game. The no-brainer would be to release the game on the PSN store and make it exclusive there. Or maybe it could hint at something bigger…
