Operation Suzaku is a group created by Final Fantasy fans for the sole purpose of making sure Square Enix hears the loud, ongoing demands for a western release of the PSP title Final Fantasy Type-0 (also called Final Fantasy Agito). Square has been consistently quiet and indecisive about releasing Type-0 in the west, but this could change soon if Square Enix’s CEO of the Americas and Europe Phil Rogers has his way. Operation Suzaku reached out to Mr. Rogers regarding a western release of the coveted Final Fantasy title and he responded today, saying:
I’ve seen your Facebook page and I hear your question clearly. I’ve posted on the blog that this is one of the first questions I’m going to tackle. It’s not a quick question to answer but I’m looking into it and I’ll update everyone when I can.
Mr. Rogers stresses that he doesn’t want to get anyone’s hopes up and reminds us of how difficult it can be for previously released games to be localized, but any official news on a western release of this game would be greatly appreciated. I’d honestly be happy with a digital only release with English subtitles. Let’s hope for the best and keep our expectations in check.
