Ain't no thing like me, except me. I am the biggest half behind this website and love to write about my deep love for fighting games, (J)RPG's and Destiny. Really do not like Call of Duty and absolutely love pizza.
Final Fantasy Type-0 was the first high-profile Final Fantasy game to not be localized in the West, the wait is almost over Type-0 HD is bound to release soon.
Final Fantasy Type-0 HD features 14 playable characters, all of them are cadets in Class Zero at the Magic Academy Peristylium Suzaku. Each character wields a different weapon and a unique fighting style.
Aside from Machina and Rem, the members of Class Zero are named after the Japanese pronunciations of playing cards.
“Since the dawn of eternity, four lights of hope have shone upon the world.
Men flock to these lights, around which they build four peristylia.
Each peristylium becomes their faith and society, the path upon which they are set.
The Vermilion Bird – wings of fire to lift the heart.
The White Tiger – steely arms by which to seize knowledge.
The Azure Dragon – unclouded eyes that see all beneath the sky.
The Black Tortoise – a rigid shield and a well-guarded blade.
But when nine and nine meets nine,
Tempus Finis shall be willed upon them.
For without the Agito, their world—called Orience–
must persist in its spiral.
In the land of Orience, it is said that “when Tempus Finis arrives, the crystal will guide Agito, those who will balance the world.”
Many interpret this as “saviors, called Agito, will emerge when the catastrophe, referred to as Finis, befalls this world.”
—The Lore of Orience
Though a peace treaty is supposed to be in effect with the world’s four countries, Cid Aulstyne has sent his l’Cie soldiers to intercontinental war with the neighboring countries. Conquering Lorica for its crystal, the Milites military focuses its attack on the Kingdom of Concordia and the Suzaku Dominion of Rubrum. However, with Byakko’s newly developed weapon named Crystal Jammer, the Suzaku crystal that kept Milites at bay at Rubrum shatters, leaving the nation vulnerable to attack and is forced to surrender to the superior nation. However, still possessing the powers the crystals gave them, the students of Class Zero refuse to surrender and proceed to fight back.
These are the kids from Class Zero, our only hope at a better tomorrow!
