Inb4 all of the "lol FFXIII sux" comments. tongue

But seriously, I think that this could just be Final Fantasy XV. Though a sequel to XIII would be nice....

Could be a strategy/RPG for a handheld like Tactics.

Hmmmm....."Type 0" seems to be written in a Military Game-font.

I thought there were supposed to be two other XIIIs (Versus and some other game with a latin title)... Did they stop production of them? And yes, I'm aware these aren't actual sequels to the main XIII and are more or less like side stories.

You mean Agito? They're still going, actually. Info on the series here.
Speculation at this point is useless. With only a name and logo (and only in one region!), it could well end up unreleased. We all remember Chrono Break, right?
At least this has a logo.

I'd rather get Versus XIII then another true sequel.

I don't know, I think XIII is pretty well set up for a sequel. With all of the world-building done, they'd have room for a decent plot.

Another one? Already?
That's why he wants you to have the money. Not so you can buy 14 Cadillacs but so you can help build up the wastes

They're already doing that with Tactics Ogre.

So. From the article.

It appears Square Enix has another Final Fantasy spinoff in the works. By searching Europe’s trademark database, we discovered Final Fantasy Type-0.

Yea, that's DEFINITELY worthy of a whole news article! A trademark! In Europe! Clearly, this is a game announcement that has tons of details forthcoming.

...nobody in the gaming press really does care that they just make up the news, do they?

Don't get used to this.
[up][up]But that's just a remake.

[up]How is that making something up? It's not even a whole article, just three short paragraphs.
This could be XIII-2, XV, another installment of Co FFVII (VII's the only one in the series that did that Blade Runner kanji-mixed-with-english thing), another portable spinoff, anything. Keeping my fingers crossed that it's XIII-2, though. There's so many Sequel Hooks in XIII's ending, it's ridiculous.
Off to greener pastures. Peace out

I just traded in FFXIII and a couple of others to get Brotherhood for free.

Worth it.

Something tells me I'm gonna have to trade in my PS3 version of XIII and just buy the 360 version.
The Leading Man
Why would you do that?
21 Customer30th Dec 2010 08:22:28 PM from GA , Relationship Status: Charming Titania with a donkey face
Because I still haven't bought a new PS3 yet (currently saving for a better laptop) and my save data is gone anyway.

Well, there are my player trophies or whatever that's associated with my PSN account, but I don't care about those.
The Leading Man
No, I mean why would you buy FFXIII again?

It wouldn't be the first time I've rebought games (i.e. some of my PSP games and then rebuying Bayonetta for the 360 after my PS3 died). And at this point I just want to be finished with XIII so I won't have to worry about spoilers anymore.
A-HYUK!
I've rebought plenty of games before, when I got the urge to play them again.

Back to the op:

This could be a game. Or...this is exactly like Chrono Break - a trademark leading into a pile of nothing that the press trots out because they know fans desperate for news will give them hits. This is far more likely, since patents and trademarks are registered all the time and go nowhere. But they show up a lot during slow news cycles because it's a great way to pretend that a major game got announced with the right spin.

The article, and the second one linked, both take a minor piece of information and blow them up into something they're not. That is making up news.
