The CEO of Square Enix America and Europe, Phil Rogers, posted on the European Square Enix blog, asking for fan feedback, among other things. A member of Operation Suzaku, a group dedicated to getting Square Enix to localize Final Fantasy Type-0 for the West, contacted Mr. Rogers and asked about Final Fantasy Type-0.
Here is what Phil Rogers had to say:
Thanks for the note and I’ve done a ‘lot’ of reading, which has been great actually to read what people think and feel. On the one hand it’s great that people care so passionately about our games, but on the other it’s clear we’ve frustrated some people out there which certainly is not our intention.
So to your point, I’ve seen your Facebook page and I hear your question clearly. I’ve posted on the blog that this is one of the first questions I’m going to tackle. It’s not a quick question to answer but I’m looking into it and I’ll update everyone when I can. But I mentioned (again on the blog) that I don’t want to get hopes up as localising previously released games sometimes isn’t possible when the team have moved onto other projects. But I will look into this thoroughly.
Thanks for the email,
Although this is not concrete proof that we’ll see Final Fantasy Type-0 in the future, it is a good sign. Final Fantasy Type-0 is part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis group of Final Fantasy games and was released for the PSP in Japan, back in 2011.
