Final Fantasy Type 0 HD Review

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD will arrive on PC via Steam on August 18th, publisher Square Enix has announced.

According to Squeenix, the PC version of the game has received several enhancements. The in-game battle camera has thankfully been improved, the game has full suport for Steam achievements and trading cards, support for scalable motion blur has been added, and a customizable dynamic screen shot mode. In addition there’s controller support and support for higher resolution graphics.

Pre-order the game and you’ll receive the Master Chocobo as your courier and Moogle as your ward in DotA 2, along with a special Final Fantasy Type-0 HD loading screen.

Square Enix has also divulged the game’s minimum system requirements:

  • Operating System: Windows 7, 8, 8.1 64bit
  • Processor: CPU Core i3 2.5GHz
  • Memory: RAM 4GB
  • Disk Space: HDD/SSD 30GB
  • Video: GTX560Ti or AMD Radeon 7790 mp4 [H.264]
  • Sound: DirectX XAudio2API
  • DirectX: 11 and over

And these are the recommended requirements:

  • Operating System: Windows 7, 8, 8.1 64bit
  • Processor: CPU Core i5 2.7GHz
  • Memory: RAM 6GB
  • Disk Space: HDD/SSD 30GB
  • Video: GTX750 mp4 [H.264]
  • Sound: DirectX XAudio2API
  • DirectX: 11 and over

Originally released on PlayStation Portable in Japan, it took some time before Type-O HD made its way to the West. Final Fantasy Type-0 HD was released on PS4 and Xbox One in March of this year.

Despite its age, and despite being a bit rough around the edges visually, Type-0 HD is one of the more interesting games in the series to be released in recent years – not to mention the darkest. The story revolves around a class of 13 students, the so-called Class Zero, as they seek to defend their homeland from the onslaught of the warmongering Militesi Empire. What follows is around 30-40 hours of death and tragedy, though there are moments of levity along the way.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD walked away with a respectable score of 8/10 when I reviewed it earlier this year. “Rough around the edges but with plenty to like about it, Final Fantasy: Type 0 HD is a decent addition to Square Enix’s long-running franchise,” I wrote in my Final Fantasy Type-0 HD review. “Just don’t expect production values to rival the publisher’s best.”
