Here, for your enjoyment, is an official Square Enix comparison video that shows how they've transformed Final Fantasy Type-0 from a dark ugly PSP game to a GORGEOUS new-gen console game.

Well, OK, it's not that gorgeous. Everything looks a touch too glossy, and a lot of the textures are clearly carried over from the original release. But this video is fun to watch, and it's exciting to think that in just under two months, we'll finally get to play a console Final Fantasy that doesn't involve Lightning.

I had a chance to play a bit of Type-0 HD last Friday‚ÄĒnot enough to really get a feel for the characters or combat system, but enough to see some promise. The camera is a bit of a concern‚ÄĒthe controls are very, very sensitive and there doesn't seem to be a way to change that‚ÄĒbut I'll reserve judgement until I get to really sit down and spend some time with this thing.

The game is out March 17 for PS4/Xbox One. For more, read my interview with director Hajime Tabata.
