All-Star Cast: The Japanese version features many prominent voice actors, to the point that the final trailer before the release date consists of introducing the Loads and Loads of Characters alongside the names of who provides the voice for them.
Before the character names were divulged, everyone was some degree of [weapon]-[honorific].
The developers' nickname for Queen was "Class President."
Fan Translation: A mostly completed version by SkyBladeCloud and team was released in June 2014. Two days later, Type-0 HD and Agito were announced for localization, and the patch has since been taken down at Square Enix's request.
A special endgame scene involving Carla, Cater and King, three of the four characters voiced by Haruhi Suzumiya actors, can be viewed if requirements are met.
Despite none of the Haruhi cast voicing any of the scene's characters in the dub, the HD version's translation references Haruhi directly, with the scene's title being "The Melancholy of Carla Ayatsugi".
Here are the party setups according to this trope:
If your party consists of Eight (Tadakuni), King (Hidenori) and Jack (Yoshitake) you have the Team Nichibros.
Add Ace (Glasses) or Queen (Yoshitake's sis) if necessary.
If your party consists of Machina (Akashi), Jack (Murasakibara) and Nine (Midorima) who were both melee type, you have the team GOM.
If your party consists of King (Gintoki), Jack (Sougo) and Rem (Jugem-Jugem), you have the team Silversoul.
If your party consists of King (Tomokazu Sugita), Trey (Yuuichi Nakamura) and other characters like Ace (Yuuki Kaji), Queen (Ami Koshimizu), or even special character Kurasame (Takahiro Sakurai), you have the team Rubrum Encounter.
If your party consists of Machina (Erecpyle Dukakis), King (Leon), Jack (Gustave) and Ace (Variation), you have the team ED.
In the English localization, you can hear some familiar voice actors like Yuri Lowenthal playing background characters.
Vaporware: The game was infamous for this for a while; it was announced in 2006 as a cellphone game (that is, something traditionally very easy to put together), and it was 2011 before we got a release date... on the PSP, on two UMD discs. For a long time, people speculated that the project had just been canceled.
The creators of the game admitted that development on the game didn't even really start until 2008, two years after it was announced, and even then it had to be kept to a minimum for the first year so they could focus on The 3rd Birthday.
Everything about Agito has suffered this aside from Agito itself. A localization was announced alongside Type-0 HD. Nothin' doin'. A remake called Agito+ was announced for the PS Vita. Nothin' doin'.
What Could Have Been: What was from all evidence a single Fabula Nova Crystallis game is no longer named Final Fantasy Agito XIII and might be developed into its own series.
