Final Fantasy Type-0′s Hajime Tabata wants to create a PlayStation Vita title

By: Erren Van Duine

Crisis Core and 3rd Birthday creator Hajime Tabata has a lot to be proud of these days.

Having produced a successful line of portable and mobile titles, the director was lucky enough to receive one of Sony’s yearly PlayStation Awards for outstanding sales performance. Final Fantasy Type-0, which saw its release in Japan last year, was the focus of this achievement.

SCE took the time to interview Tabata following his acceptance of the award, which included his thoughts on the PlayStation Vita, as well as his desire to someday make a game for it.

“When I first experienced it, I thought the screen was indeed large and beautiful. The touch screen function worked well, overall I had an impression it was an exceedingly good piece of hardware. Since I continued making Final Fantasy titles on the PSP, I myself have an interest in going to a larger device, and as someone concerned with game production, there is nothing other than the Vita that offers that largeness and high density, high luminescence, and ability to draw high quality graphic images.

“With all that in mind, it’s a very appealing device. I already had wanted to create a genuine Final Fantasy title for mobile devices and I ended up making Final Fantasy Type-0, so I can’t say immediately that there is something in mind, but if there is an opportunity I’d definitely like to try making a game for the PS Vita.”

While of course not a direct confirmation by any means, it begs the question of a Vita version of Final Fantasy Type-0 being a real possibility – most notably for the west.
