[dropcap size=small]F[/dropcap]or the 30th anniversary of the Final Fantasy series, a special event was held in Tokyo to mark the occasion. During the celebrations, Square Enix treated fans to some delicious slices of Final Fantasy goodness, and one big tasty morsel came in the form of a release date announcement for the remastered re-release of Final Fantasy XII on PS4.
Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age – which originally came out on the PS2 back in 2006 – is set to release in North America and Europe July 11th, before the July 13th release date in Japan. The remastered edition will see XII improved in “true HD” with enhanced sound and visuals, as well as implemented trophy support for the PS4, and brushed up battle design and job systems with “modern advancements”.
FINAL FANTASY XII THE ZODIAC AGE improves upon the 2006 classic FINAL FANTASY® XII, now more beautiful and easier to play than ever. The high-definition remaster introduces several modern advancements, including reconstructed battle design and a revamped job system. With newly implemented trophies and share functions, as well as stark visual and sound improvements in true HD for the first time, players both returning and new to the game will experience a grand adventure that spans the world of Ivalice in an entirely fresh and improved way.
The remaster also promises to implement an improved character levelling system, all new modes, true 7.1 sound and auto-save features.
The remaster of Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age was first announced during E3 2016. Square Enix then went on to showcase some of the remastered environments and improved gameplay in action at the Tokyo Game Show soon after:
