Update: Moments after posting the info below, PlayStation tweeted that the information was put out in error, and that the game, in fact, isn't coming to the Vita, only to PS4. So Vita owners can start holding their breaths again, I guess.
Vita owners, exhale: Final Fantasy Type-0 is finally coming westward.
Square Enix announced the news in a press release today, saying that the long-awaited JRPG will be coming to both PS4 and Xbox One, and then announced the Vita localization in a separate post on the PlayStation Blog. Not much other news was revealed at this time, though Square Enix also revealed that Final Fantasy Agito will be making the journey to Europe and North America as well, for iOS and Android devices.
Read on for the press release and a single screenshot!

– 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.
