Square Enix acknowledges fan demand for a western release of Final Fantasy Type-0

Fans awaiting a western release for Final Fantasy Type-0 very well may get some answers soon, if we’re to trust the words of Square Enix America and Europe CEO Phil Rogers.

Two weeks ago, Rogers posted a bit of an open letter, encouraging fans to share their questions, comments and other feedback with him via email. Operation Suzaku – the main force behind Type-0’s fan movement – recently received a response that, for better or worse, might eventually clear up the mystery surrounding the fate of the title’s rocky situation.

“I’ve seen your Facebook page and I hear your question clearly,” said Rogers. “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. But I mentioned (again on the blog) that I don’t want to get hopes up as localizing previously released games sometimes isn’t possible when the team have moved onto other projects. But I will look into this thoroughly.”

Until now, Square Enix has remained coy about any sort of release outside Japan, despite localization having been mostly completed over a year ago. While Rogers can’t really promise fans anything, at this point any sort of conclusive dialogue on the situation would be more than appreciated.
