It’s official! Square Enix has confirmed the existence of the long awaited HD remaster of Final Fantasy XII, dubbed Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age.
According to Kotaku (translating from the Japanese publication Famitsu), The Zodiac Age will be based on Final Fantasy XII International Zodiac Job System, rather than the standard version we received in North America in 2006. It will feature revamped character models and cutscenes, an improved turbo-mode, an auto-save feature, a re-recorded soundtrack, and shorter load times.
As of now Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is only confirmed for PlayStation 4 and will release in Japan sometime in 2017. It’s a safe bet that we’ll get it as well, but since Final Fantasy XII was a PS2 exclusive 10 years ago, I’m not sure we’ll see an Xbox One release.
