Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Shows Before and After Trailer

SquareEnix showcases the evolution of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD

The previously Japan-exclusive Final Fantasy Type-0 is heading overseas in a big way. While it only saw a PlayStation Portable release in Japan, Type-0 will be seeing both PS4 and XBox One ports in both North America and Europe.

In celebration of the upcoming release SquareEnix, the game’s developer, has released a video comparing the graphics of the original PSP game to those of its fancier 1080p counterparts. The video serves its purpose masterfully, starting out with the already-decent PSP graphics and wiping to the newer and better-than ever graphics of the PS4 and XBO.

In addition, the SquareEnix has also confirmed that a downloadable playable demo of the highly anticipated Final Fantasy XV will be included with Final Fantasy Type-0 HD as a special bonus. The demo, titled ‘Final Fantasy XVEpisode Duscae-,’ will  include elements from the opening sections of the full game, and also alters story progression and more to create a unique first-play experience. The demo is activated by a voucher included with Final Fantasy Type-0 HD. .

Along with the graphics, the trailer also showcases a fair variety of gameplay. While familiar elements of Final Fantasy, such as Magic and Moogles, are present within Type-0, the overall feel is much more fast-paced and emanates a much darker, more serious feel as players take control of members of the Type 0 Military Academy and guide them through a world filled with sci-fi themes and ravaged by war.

Final Fantasy Type-0 hits North America on March 17th of 2015, and Europe on March 20th of the same year. Type-0 has a $60 price tag.

Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense.
