Final Fantasy Type 0 Sells Almost 500,000 Copies

Final Fantasy Type 0 has sold nearly 500,000 in its first week of sales.

FF Type-0 released on PSP in Japan on October 27th in the same week as Kirby Wii and Idolmaster 2. FF Type 0 sold more copies than the other 2 titles combined, making the game one of PSP’s most succesful titles on launch.


Hajime Tabata, Director of FF Type 0, says of the game:

“The main concept of Type-0′s story was a group of youngsters caught up in a war between countries. That, along with the concept of “the weight of life” and the Fabula mythos, is the foundation of the plot. I think everyone will unleash their hatred towards death as the plot unfolds.

Creative Director, Tetsuya Nomura who has worked on many Final Fantasy games said in an interview:

“This is the first time in the series’ history with so many leading characters and so many voice actors. That’s because, the story was crafted on a character-by-character basis. If we had only given voices to the main characters, then the impact of the sub characters would have diminished–that’s why we decided to give them wonderful voice actors as well.”

There is still no news of a release in the West though, apparently, Square Enix is working on bringing Final Fantasy Type 0 to an international audience.

  1. Forgive me but what is FF type 0? I have heard of the title and nothing else?

    I imagine that they will bring it to the west within a year. :) I think i will now go and see what FF type 0 is. It’s not that ryhme game is it?

    • Final Fantasy Type-O is the new name for final fantasy agito xiii….the psp title in the fabula nova crysillis series of which ff13 anf ff versus 13 are also parts. rest assured it isnt that ryhme/rythm game for the ds.

    • Final Fantasy Type 0 is standalone Final Fantasy game, an action RPG. Only released on the PSP. It supposed to be the first of a new Final Fantasy series, like hoe FFX led to FFX – 2

      • Cheers. I really hope that we never ever see another 10-2. *shudders*. I didn’t know that a hoe led to FF10-2. ;)

      • We’re gonna see FF13-2. That’ll be pants. Just waiting on FF13 Versus.

  2. I hope there will be a way to play this game without having to own a PSP. Wasn’t there something about PSP games on the PS3 a little while ago? This, please!

  3. I would love to have a go of this xx

  4. Yeah the Japanese voices are good but i bet when the game comes here and is dubbed those voices won’t be as good of course i hope i’m wrong
