Famitsu.com posted up several new screen shots from Final Fantasy Type-0 (formerly Final Fantasy Agito XIII). The upcoming PSP RPG/Adventure game is shaping up to have some really slick looking characters and environments. We get a nice shot of Cid in his nifty captains hat, as well as some details about our Moogle buddies. It seems that Moogles will play a part in activating missions, and giving information.
We also get a peak at some of the twelve playable Class Zero students, as well as the new Gunshin summons. Final Fantasy fans will be interested to know the newest twist in this summoning system involves the summoning player to sacrifice themselves for the duration of the battle. This might create some interesting new battle strategies.
So far the games looks like it uses some of the game mechanics of Final Fantasy: Crisis Core, but will use some flavor of the party Active Time Battle system. Crisis Core is easily the greatest PSP game made, and I am hoping that status might toppled with this new contender. The Japanese release is still slated for this summer, but still no word on a US release date.
