I am a huge geek and gamer, and if you don’t know that about me, well, then you don’t me very well. I grew up playing video games. It all started on the NES (Nintendo) system and grew from there. I took a few years off but when I hit high school and Final Fantasy IX came out, it was all over. My cousins were staying with us for a few weeks while they waited to close on their house and I was home sick. I picked up my cousin’s Playstation controller and proceeded to “be sick” for the rest of the week. I just could not put it down. Since then I have played back as much of the Final Fantasy series as I could, and have continued forward. It has changed so much over the years but remains to be an amazing series. I love the way battles have evolved and how you can now see your enemies before approaching – and the summoning – ahhhh, I love modern technology!
So of course, as soon as I heard that Final Fantasy Type-O HD was coming out, I had to have it. While researching, I discovered the collector’s edition. I decided that it was well worth the extra few dollars and pre-ordered it. Boy am I glad I did because it is sold out many places now! Unfortunately, I have not had time to play this game yet – things have been busy with a remodel of the house – but I plan to dig in to it very soon! I feel bad for my husband because it means I will be glued to the TV at night when the girls go to bed.
One of the most highly anticipated role-playing games of all time, FINAL FANTASY® TYPE-0 makes its Western debut on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One as FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0 HD. Featuring the immersive story, memorable characters, and production values the series is known for, players are transported to Orience, a dark, FINAL FANTASY world governed by crystals and torn apart by war, as the nation’s youth are swept into its conflict. Step into the fray as Class Zero, a group of fourteen students from an elite military academy whose country is attacked by an aggressive neighboring Empire. Using the powerful abilities and magic of all fourteen characters in fast-paced action RPG combat, players must face the brutality and injustices of war to uncover the secrets of its genesis. Immerse yourself in a stunning array of enhanced images in this high-definition remastered version of Final Fantasy Type-0, which was originally released in Japan in 2011 for PSP.
Collector’s Edition Extras:
- unique golden steel case
- composer’s selection soundtrack
- a FINAL FANTASY® 200 page manga
- the FINAL FANTASY® 80 page art book
- Ace’s cards
- unique Duscae demo
Overall, I think the Final Fantasy Type-O HD Collector’s Edition is well worth it – if you can still find it. The art book is beautiful and Ace’s cards are really cool. Watch my unboxing video below.
