A clarification has been posted in regards to "Final Fantasy Type-0 HD" on the PS4, Vita and Xbox One. According to an update from the official U.S. Playstation Blog on June 10, the original story stating that the remastered port will be coming to the handheld system was not true. Instead, Square Enix announced that the software product is only being released for the PS4 and Xbox One.

The clarification angered many Vita owners who were previously petitioning Square Enix to port the PSP game to the newer portable system. "Final Fantasy Type-0" was released in Japan four years ago but was never localized for western regions. The remastered port would have helped the struggling Vita system, which is barely selling in a lot of territories.

Instead, Square Enix decided to port the video game to the PS4 and Xbox One. Aside from the initial announcement, the publisher did not provide any other details on "Final Fantasy Type-0 HD." However, the software product should look better as it will most likely render at a higher resolution on the next-generation systems. Furthermore, the frame rate may also be increased.

"Final Fantasy Type-0" was known as "Final Fantasy Agito XIII" when it was announced as one of three games based on the "Fabula Nova Crystallis" mythology. The other two are "Final Fantasy XIII" and "Final Fantasy Versus XIII," which would later become known as "Final Fantasy XV." The 15th main installment was absent from E3 2014 although it was previously confirmed to be coming to the PS4 and Xbox One as well.

The "Final Fantasy Type-0 HD" release date has not yet been announced. However, Square Enix could be releasing the remastered port first in order to establish a fan base on the PS4 and Xbox One for the upcoming "Final Fantasy XV."
