Final Fantasy XV demo arrives next year, Type-0 HD dated

2 min read


Oh I’m turning Japanese I’m turning Japanese. Right now, the Tokyo Games Show is blazing a trail of new announcements, most of which happen to be in some sort of language that I can’t understand. Still, some info is beginning to leak out of that trade show. And it’s all good news for Final Fantasy fans today.

First up, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD. It’s been around the console block a couple of times now, first popping up all the way back in 2011 on the PSP. An action-RPG, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is another entry into that daft Fabula Nova Crystallis series of Final Fantasy games, but actually far more decent than you’d imagine. That game arrives on March 17 of next year.

Accompanying Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, will be a voucher that will allow players to download a Final Fantasy XV demo early, according to a Game Informer story that got pulled. Thankfully, AGB got a screen capture of the story, because this is the internet after all. Dubbed Episode Duscae, the demo will be set in the early parts of the game, but retooled in a manner to make it a more palatable demo experience. It’ll be available on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Well it’s about damn time. It feels like Final Fantasy XV has been in development forever now, a game that happens to be almost as mythic as The Last Guardian. At least one of them is finally making it out of development hell then.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
