Hope springs eternal for Final Fantasy fans and PlayStation Vita owners alike, as the director of PSP hits Final Fantasy Type-0, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, and The 3rd Birthday has expressed his desire to develop a game for the sales-deficient handheld.
Hajime Tabata was enthusiastic about PS Vita in an interview with Sony after being awarded for exceeding sales expectations with Final Fantasy Type-0. "I’ve always been creating Final Fantasy titles for the PSP, so I personally have an interest in a bigger device at the moment," he said. ". . . as one who creates games, the PSV is also the only hardware that can show such HQ graphics on a screen of that size with such high density and brightness."
While Tabata didn't reference plans for a specific PS Vita title, he did mention that the original vision for Final Fantasy Type-0 pegged the game as a full, console-quality Final Fantasy experience on a portable. "In the past, we created [Final Fantasy] Type-0 with the intention of completely investing a full-scale FF game on a portable console," he explained. ". . . so although I can’t say anything about the present, if there is a chance I would definitely love to create a game for the PSV."
Is there hope for a Type-0 port onto PlayStation Vita? Will Square bring a completely unique Final Fantasy installment to Sony's struggling handheld? Only time will tell, so stay glued to PSU.com for more developments as they unfold.

You might wanna go back and edit that article, I think you missed a few adjectives in regards to making the Vita seem like a dead system. It's like you don't even want the vita be around long enough for the guy to even finish making a new game.

Even if he did make a game on the vita we won't see it stateside anytime soon. It's all talk not enough action. Quite frankly I had enough of their bull. So annoying..
