Final Fantasy: Type-0 HD attempts to bring a bit more “grounding” to the typical Final Fantasy story, inspired by historical wars and battles. The game focuses on a group of students who form an alliance known as “Class Zero”. They hail from Vermillion Peristylium, a magical academy situated within the Dominion of Rubrum. When the Militesi Empire launches an assault on the neighbouring states to control crystals, Class Zero is called into action, becoming entangled in the war.
Presumably as a result of the game’s design, the storytelling in Type-0 HD is incredibly disjointed and expects far too much from the player for what will essentially amount to a throwaway world and universe. From the moment you load the game, it barrages you with all kinds of names and cities and factions that you have to remember in order to comprehend what’s going on in the story. Except that the story is so disjointed that it’s nearly impossible to keep up without constantly revising.
