Square Enix has officially announce the Remastered version of Final Fantasy XII. Meaning that long time rumor we heard ages ago was indeed true. An HD version of the classic PS2 title (the last Final Fantasy title for the system) has a new trailer, and a brand new name and it has brought with it a new vigor for fans of this unique Final Fantasy title. Keep reading below for all the details on the hotly anticipated Final Fantasy remake that will be coming to the PlayStation 4 next year.
First things first, the new official title released by Square Enix is Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age! Worry not Western friends, the title will be released in the West as well in 2017, confirmed by Square Enix.
Now, let’s check out the trailer for the remake of Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age
Isn’t it GORGEOUS! The familiar locales are a renewing breath of nostalgia, as Ivalice is of course as gorgeous as ever.
Final Fantasy XII was the title that gave us Bangaa, Viera, Sky Pirates, and political intrigue all set in the world of Ivalice, a beautiful, diverse, rich area full of some of the best orchestration in a Final Fantasy title. So, what can we expect from Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age?
- The HD remaster will be based on the Final Fantasy XII International Zodiac Job System
- Revamped character models
- Revamped cutscenes
- 7.1 surround sound audio
- High quality voice acting
- Both Japanese and English voices will be available
- The introduced turbo-mode will be improved
- The Original Score has been re-recorded
- Players can choose between the original and re-recorded version of the soundtrack
- Load times will be reduced
- The title will be available on the PlayStation 4
- Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age will be available in 2017, with a Western release also in 2017.
This was one of my personal favorite Final Fantasy titles, the tie-in wit the Zodiac symbols and the summons, the more “grown-up” political story, the well-rounded characters, the rich world of Ivalice, all of these aspects tied into a title that can’t be missed.
