It's been a year and a half since Square Enix released the PSP role-playing game Final Fantasy Type-0 in Japan, and the publisher has not yet said a word about a possible U.S. release.

Enter the fans. A group of dedicated translators are doing their best to release an English version of Type-0, and you can see the first footage above.

I'll be following this one closely. Buzz out of Japan suggests that Type-0 is excellent, and if Square Enix won't let us play it, at least these guys might.

I've reached out to Square Enix to ask what they think of this whole thing, and whether it will affect plans to rebrand Final Fantasy Type-0 as a browser game release Type-0 outside of Japan. I'll update with any comments.
