Originally a PlayStation Portable available only in Japan is now getting a high-definition release on Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Originally launched October 27 2011 as part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis series that encompassed Final Fantasy 13 and Versus 13 now known as Final Fantasy 15. It promises to smooth out the controls, visual overhaul with character models significantly improved and the resolution bumped up.
As Hajime Tabata was on the helm of Final Fantasy Type 0 it seems quite a good idea to bundle a demo for the upcoming game that he will be directing, Final Fantasy XV. Every copy of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD will include a download code for the special demo of Final Fantasy XV called Final Fantasy XV – Episode Duscae.
Final Fantasy XV – Episode Duscae will take place near the beginning of Final Fantasy XV so you don’t have to worry about any major plot spoilers and you’ll be able to explore a certain part of the world and experience the new battle system.
It’s not surprising to see a demo bundled with another game but at least this makes sense as both have the same person behind. It’s essentially a taste of what Hajime Tabata has done in past and shows what to expect from his work, as he said : “The voice of our Western fans was instrumental in the development of FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0, and we´re very excited to release this title soon”.
Final Fantasy Type 0 HD and Final Fantasy XV – Episode Duscae will be available in Europe on 20th March 2015.
