What Is Final Fantasy Type-0?

Illustration for article titled What Is Final Fantasy Type-0?

A mysterious trademark for Final Fantasy Type-0 popped up in a European trademark database.


The trademark is for "Final Fantasy Type-0" and was filed yesterday. The trademark also included a logo, which is 零式, or "Type-0" written in Japanese kanji.

It's not clear whether the game is in fact a reboot, but Tomb Raider, which Square Enix now owns, is getting another reboot called simply "Tomb Raider".

Next month, Square Enix is holding "Square Enix 1st Production Department Premiere" in Tokyo's Roppongi Hills. New titles will be revealed at the event. Will Final Fantasy Type-0 one of them?

And is it a reboot? A remake? A prequel? What?

To be sure, Square-Enix polls and stock prices point to the fact that the Final Fantasy brand needs a rehash to survive after the decent but flawed XIII and the abysmal XIV.

And since they more or less bet 2010 on these two games...

I for one would love to see them abandon the mmo segment and make a truly epic Elder Scrolls style Seiken Densetsu (Mana series).

Alternatively, go back to their roots. To boost consumer confidence, stop remaking FF IV, remake 5 and 6 to multiplat while putting a team to work on a VII remake. Use the rest of the resources to make an epic XV.
