Hajime Tabata, the director on Final Fantasy Type-0, has expressed desire to continue with the Type series, provided that the first one is successful.
Speaking with Square Enix Europe staff, he revealed that the studio has already gone ahead and secured trademarks for more titles under the “Type” brand. However, their development depends on how much impact the first Type title can make.
“I would like to make more Type games and make them into a Final Fantasy series. We’ve registered trademarks for it, we’ve gone that far so we want to continue it,” he said. “I’d like to make the Type series the kind of series where we can do the kind of stuff that we really can’t do in the mainline numbered series, so make it a really alternative kind of Final Fantasy.”
The Final Fantasy Type-0 director also revealed that the game will retain its Japanese theme song ZERO by Bump of Chicken, in the West. It will come with English subtitles so that the western fans can understand what the words mean.
“It’s a really good song and we thought it’d be best to keep the original appeal and impact of it for the fans,” he said. “We discussed it with Bump of Chicken and the final verdict is that we’re going to keep the original Japanese version as it is, included in the European version too.”
