Final Fantasy Type-0 (ファイナルファンタジー零式 Fainaru Fantajī Reishiki?) is an action role-playing game developed and published by Square Enix for PlayStation Portable, and later for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The original version was released in Japan in October 2011. The high-definition port, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, is to be released worldwide in March 2015. Type-0 is part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis subseries, a set of games sharing a common mythos which includes Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XV. The gameplay is reminiscent of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, with the player taking direct control of characters and taking them on missions and large-scale battles. Outside of the graphical improvements, the HD version is largely identical to the original PSP version, although the original's multiplayer functionality was dropped, and additional difficulty levels were implemented.
The story focuses on Class Zero, a group of twelve students from the Vermillion Peristylium, a magical academy in the Dominion of Rubrum. One day, the Militesi Empire launches an assault on the other Crystal States of Orience, seeking to control their respective crystals. When Rubrum is attacked, Class Zero are called into action and become entangled in both the efforts to push back and defeat the forces of Militesi, and the secret behind the war and the existence of the crystals. The setting and presentation were inspired by historical documentaries, and the story itself was written to be darker than other Final Fantasy titles.
