Two weeks ago, Phil Rogers (CEO for Square Enix in the Americas and Europe) posted on the European Square Enix Blog in order to share his vision with all the fans around the world.
But more than that, he also asked to be flooded by feedback from fans. It was of course a great opportunity for our cause to be heard. So I grab my keyboard and sent him an email about Final Fantasy Type-0. I also asked you to do the same. And the good news is: he answered me.
Thanks for the note and I’ve done a ‘lot’ of reading, which has been great actually to read what people think and feel. On the one hand it’s great that people care so passionately about our games, but on the other it’s clear we’ve frustrated some people out there which certainly is not our intention.
So to your point, 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. But I mentioned (again on the blog) that I don’t want to get hopes up as localising previously released games sometimes isn’t possible when the team have moved onto other projects. But I will look into this thoroughly.
Thanks for the email,
Even if he can’t promise us anything, knowing that Final Fantasy Type-0 is one of his priorities is great. Also, knowing that the game is already localized, it should not be an issue that the Type-0 team is working on something else.
Operation Suzaku will keep trying to convince Square Enix and Sony to release Final Fantasy Type-0 for the West. With more than 1,000 followers on Twitter and 25,000 likes on Facebook, we now need 1,377 petition signatures in order to meet our third milestones. Once meet, I will reach Square Enix JP and Sony.
