There’s been quite a bit of news for the Final Fantasy series, ranging from a new director for Final Fantasy
Versus XIII XV, to a surprise release of Final Fantasy IV on Steam, and even a delicious offer of a demo for Final Fantasy Versus XIII XV.
I really should quit it with the ‘Versus XIII’ jokes but they just hit me like lightning. Sorry, I hope that wasn’t too much.
Anyways, what could be the cherry on top of this cake? How about a release of Final Fantasy Agito+ on the Vita? But wait, it’s only in Japan still? According to Hajime Tabata of Square Enix, it will definitely be localized. While localized does not equal the same as released – Type-0 was originally localized but never planned to be released – it does give players some hope, as Tabata has noted he does want Western audiences to experience the game.
That, and Type-0 was finally given a release date of March 17th, 2015 for Western audiences due to demand for the game.
Serving as both a prequel and companion to Final Fantasy Type-0, Agito+ was originally released for mobile devices in Japan. If players chose to download the digital version, it will be free-to-play with offered micro-transactions. The packaged retail version of the game will run about ¥3,800, or roughly $34.99 USD.
The release date is announced for January 15th, 2015. Hopefully at the upcoming Tokyo Game Show, we’ll hear more information about a release of a localized version.
