What was to be the PlayStation Portable entry in Square Enix's "Fabula Nova Crystallis" series is now considered a spin-off title with a new name: Final Fantasy Type-0
. Director Hajime Tabata resolved the mysterious trademark filings
at Square Enix's 1st Production Department event in Japan today, noting that the change from "Final Fantasy Agito XIII
" seemed appropriate given how different the more action-oriented design of Type-0
had become from Final Fantasy XIII
Though it will now distance itself from XIII
will continue to embrace the PSP -- in fact, when it ships in Japan this Summer, it'll come on two UMDs. According to Siliconera
's translation, the doubled storage will accommodate over 30 voiced characters. Judging by earlier trailers
, Final Fantasy Type-0
will also feature multiplayer battles.
We'll contact Square Enix to learn more about its plans for North America.
