Square may not have had any news about Final Fantasy XV or Kingdom Hearts 3, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t bring any Final Fantasy news to E3. After originally being a psp release several years ago, which remained only in Japan, Final Fantasy Type 0 will finally be coming to the West in the form of a next gen HD remake for PS4 and Xbox One.
A lone screenshot has accompanied the announcement showing a snippet of how it will look on the PS4. The recently released mobile game, Final Fantasy Agito, currently available in Japan for iOS and Android will also be getting an english release for western audiences.
No details on an expected release date has been announced so far, but hopefully we won’t have to wait too long.

SQUARE ENIX ANNOUNCES FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0 AND FINAL FANTASY AGITO FOR NORTH AMERICA
The World of Orience Destined for Next Generation Consoles and Mobile Devices
LOS ANGELES (JUNE 10, 2014) – FINAL FANTASY® fans are in for a treat with the announcement of two highly anticipated SQUARE ENIX® titles: FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0™ and FINAL FANTASY AGITO™.
Originally released in Japan in 2011 for the PlayStation®Portable handheld entertainment system, FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0 will be coming to the West as an HD remaster for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. In addition, FINAL FANTASY AGITO, already available in Japan, is confirmed for a Western release on iOS and Android devices.
“The voice of our Western fans was instrumental in the development of FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0, and we’re very excited to release this title soon,” said Hajime Tabata, director of FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0. “The new PlayStation®4 system and Xbox One gaming and entertainment platform have really helped to re-envision this dynamic and turbulent world of Orience.”
The war-torn land of Orience is also the setting for FINAL FANTASY AGITO, where players on iOS and Android mobile devices take on the role of a cadet in the Dominion of Rubrum as they aim to become Agito, a prophesized savior of Orience.
Some key features for FINAL FANTASY AGITO include:
Character Customization: Create a unique character in the world of FINAL FANTASY AGITO. Players have access to a variety of character customization options, including gender, facial features, hairstyles and more.
Player Choice: Interact with other cadets at Akademeia, including key characters from FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0. The decisions players make at the Akademeia will affect the course of history in the game, which in turn will affect the worldwide player community.
Missions: Players can head out on missions to raise their level, and find/craft their ultimate weapon. Players can also confront powerful enemies in large-scale, cooperative battles involving the entire FINAL FANTASY AGITO player population.
FINAL FANTASY AGITO will be available for free download with in-app purchases on iOS and Android Devices. No release date has been confirmed for either title at this time.
