New Final Fantasy Type-0 trailer links to larger lore

FinalFantasyType0HD 8

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD may just be a PSP remake, but it still had an important impact on the Final Fantasy universe when it was originally released in 2011. Part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis universe, the lore spreads across the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, as well as into Final Fantasy XV. While this latest trailer is for Final Fantasy Type-0, avid fans may see some elements or lore from the other games, too.

Here is the legacy trailer:

It makes me particularly happy to see franchise standards in the trailer. From cactuar to flan, favourite summons and even Cid, it feels like a real Final Fantasy game. I like that the crystal universe carries over between games, although I’m not totally convinced that I like the lore behind it.

I find the whole crystal idea and terminology to be rather convoluted and it doesn’t offer those things that I normally like in a Final Fantasy game. Don’t they know that JRPGs should all be about fighting for a cause and then realizing that your cause was wrong all along only to resist and fight against your former allies? The crystals are okay, but thanks to a bunch of new terms and confusing mythos, I just didn’t find Final Fantasy XIII as gripping as previous games in the franchise. While Type-0 could add more clarity to the lore, I think the Crystallis universe just far too convoluted.

Are you amped for Type-0 HD to release? It’s not long now? Are you hoping for it to fill your JRPG loving heart, or are you keeping expectations low until you read reviews?

    Fabula Nova Crystallis universe is actually really amazing, but its never explored and explained well in the games, AT ALL. Only reason I love it is because I read the wiki to understand wtf is going on lol That said, this game supposedly has some great lore and you’re gonna have to play twice to figure it all out. ALSO, new details emerged that they added a secret cutscene that hints at Type-1 , HYPE HYPE HYPE. Can’t wait for Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!

        YUP lol, the games did a horrible job of explaining it. Freaking XIII just threw ALL the info into those kak datalogs….Once I read the Wiki however, dayum, mind was blown. The origin of Fal’cie and the Gods that made them was just WAAAAAAY TOO good. I hated that XIII never expanded on it. Hopefully Type-0 does a better job.

      Well now is as good a time as any. XV is gonna be much more accessible and grounded in ‘reality’, hopefully when XV comes out you’ll give a chance ๐Ÿ™‚

        The game has always looked intriguing however there was always some reason I never got to play it.

    I watched gameplay and saw how the combat works. Now I’m very unexcited…

      Why? Not into action based combat?

        If I want action based combat I’ll play literally 2 billion other games out there that do it a lot better than FF, even if the combat was like Star Oceans I would be stoked but this system just reeks of the auto battle system that I hated. Final Fantasy should be and will always be to me awesome turn based tactical combat, FF 10 had it 100% right why did they have to change it…

          Hmmm, I don’t know, this is a spin-off though that was on PSP, it doesn’t have to follow the gameplay of past titles. FF XV, while action maintains a lot of that tactical edge. Unfortunately, turn-based has been dying out when it comes to FF ๐Ÿ™ It’s unfortunate but separate battle screens and all that is all fading out, I feel your pain.

            Well I can wait plenty of indie games are getting it right these days and they cost a fraction of the price of these AAA behemoths they will keep me busy till someone make’s a AAA JRPG that everyone wants, or a half decent MMO
