SquareEnix showcases the evolution of 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 XV –Episode 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.
