And some of the key Type-0 folks, and Type-0 is awesome.

Plot-wise too?

I thought so.

Really wish I knew Japanese or Square would localize Type-0. It looks awesome.

For an FF with a militaristic story with fantasy elements is fairly elaborate, not too hard to follow and satisfying in its own terms. Type-0 also has two endings and the script was written by Hiroki Chiba.

Personally I really like the opening sequence Type-0 has. Is different from what you see in other games in the series and it sets the tone very well.

I'm really surprised they didn't go the route of an HD version for PS3 yet.

In the few times they considered releasing Type-0 in the West, some internal reason came out that stopped the chance of that ever happening.

Lately you could think is gonna happen at any moment with the Vita. But that's wishful thinking right now.

It doesn't really feel like they've got too many big items on their plate right now; and I can't imagine an upgraded PSP game being too hard to take on.   ...I think what I mean is that it seems like a wasted opportunity NOT to milk the game that I'm surprised it wouldn't be a priority within the near future.

But hey, what do I know?

It really seems like a no-brainer, considering people in NA are clamouring for it.

I don't know, Type-0 feels very much like it was made for a portable system.  Probably because it was.  I'm not sure I'd want to play it on a PS3...

Vita, though?  Sure.

Why not? Plenty of psp games have worked well on PS3.

I remember reading a while ago in an interview with Hajime Tabata something about how porting Type-0 to PS3 goes against the design philosophy of the game, since it was made as a portable experience in mind.

Holy shit I should not have watched that intro, it makes me even more pissed off that we didn't get this game. That was fantastic! Grittiest stuff I've ever seen from the series and the music is great. Damn you localization team.

Fear not my son, a fan translation patch will be released in August, import a JPN copy and use thy CFW.

I don't know.
Square has been known to send cease & desist RIGHT WHEN SOMETHING IS FINISHED.

They allegedly got that covered.  The guy doing it got a Lawyer, and something about out of area (Spain?) laws protect them.  iirc...i shoulda read it better.

Yeah, another reason the translation patch isn't coming out til August even though they just finished it is because they're waiting to see if Square announces any kind of localization at E3, at which point they'll decide what to do next.
