Final Fantasy Type-0 began as a PSP, Japanese exclusive title, which pitted a class of teenagers embroiled in a world war against other nations and unseen forces. The game was never intended to be released outside of Japan, but a strong fan campaign prompted Square to announce in 2014 that a HD remake would be released for the Xbox One and PS4. Since then, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD has sold over one million units worldwide.

Square Enix has released the PC requirements for Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, as well as several screens showing off the PC port. The game is slated to be released on August 18th on Steam.
