Chocobo-A-Go-Go: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Out Aug 18th

Last time we checked in with teens-in-a-war ARPG spin-off Final Fantasy Type-0 [official site], we’d just received word that it would be coming to PC “soon”. Thanks to the press release that just landed on my desk, I can tell you that “soon” is August 18th. Obviously you should never preorder anything ever but if you were to preorder this ‘un, you’d be able to cross the streams of in-game menageries by adding a chocobo courier to Dota 2. You can also have “a Moogle (Class Zero) as your ward”. I quoted that directly because most of the words didn’t mean anything to me.

The trailer below is Playstation-branded, having been released when the HD version came to Sony’s machine, but it does contain some groovy music and should give you some idea as to whether the Young Adult teen-team stylings are to your taste.

In other Final Fantasy news, Alice’s dreams of boy band roadtrips and beautifully rendered eggs and toast are still on hold: Final Fantasy XV’s PC release has not yet been confirmed. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is still on its way to us though, although no release date has been mentioned.

    New FF? Must be a Typo.

    Well, you can check reviews of the PS4 version to see if it’s up your alley. Now the only thing in question will be the quality of the port.

    Hmmm. May save me the trouble of tracking down the English ttranslation patch for the original PSP version. Or not. Too many other time-wasters scattered around my hard disk, you see…and the last decent solo FF was XII.

    …And what the fahrvergnügen is a DOTA, anyway? Some sort of S&M slang? No, wait–it’s that mindless clickfest that tweakers like to play on their week-long meth binges, right? SeriousIy–I have yet to meet a single person that actually plays that crap.

    DOTA is a thing that Valve (like Nintendo with their handhelds before them) discovered to almost literally print money for them.
    With the equivalent of the DOTA World Cup coming up Valve put out an online companion tool for it, that would shit out free hats for the owner depending on if they jumped through certain hoops at $20.
    At the start of that tournement thay had made SIXTY MILLION DOLLARS IN THREE MONTHS ON THAT ITEM ALONE. 25% OF WHICH WENT INTO THE PRIZEPOOL.
    NONE of which covers how much money they are making from the associated chests and individual itemsets.

    “We’re still going to make HL3” they claim in the exact tones usually reserved for the phrase “We can stop taking Crystal Meth anytime we want”

    But they wont. We all know it.

      Guess you never played a modern multiplatform game. Specially one has heavy on cutscenes and videos as the Final Fantasy series.
