Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Story Stems From Director’s Love of History

September 4, 2014Written by Mark Labbe


Final Fantasy Type-0 HD director Hajime Tabata has explained that the game’s story actually stemmed from his love of history.

In a recent interview with Siliconera, Tabata talked about how loves history. He originally wanted Type-0 to have more historical elements in it, but ultimately ended up putting in more elements of the Fabula Nova Crystallis mythology.

I personally love history and I really wanted to create something that involved real history, but to include some modern evaluations into the storyline and express it in that light. I wasn’t able to do everything I wanted to do with, but it was kind of like a child-run in essence

Tabata then went on to talk about how his love for history started when he was just a child, as his father was a history teacher and “always had history books lying around at home.” He explained that he has a particular fondness for the American Civil War, and would love to see that “make its way into the game.” Whether or not it will remains to be seen.
