Final Fantasy Type-0 English Patch Removed Due To Legal Threats

Fan translation creator Sky created an unofficial fan translation patch for Final Fantasy Type-0 on PSP just before E3. During E3, Square Enix announced that they would be making an official translation and HD version of Final Fantasy Type-0 for PS4 and Xbox One. This announcement was well received, although there was some anger among fans when the game was incorrectly also announced for PS Vita by the Playstation blog.

Adding more drama to the release, Sky has been asked to remove his long worked on translation patch of Final Fantasy Type-0 and any posts about it. Sky said he has received legal threats and will post more detail at a later date.

I think this is a massive bummer. Translations aren't an easy task, especially when you're a fan and not being paid by as company to do it. As I mentioned in my original post about Type-0, I'm sure fans who have been asking for a Western release of the game from Square Enix would have supported the official release anyway.
