[UPDATE – Dual Language, Auto-Save, New Soundtrack] Final Fantasy XII HD Remaster Confirmed, Gets Teaser Trailer And Screens
[Update] Square Enix has released some new details on FInal Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age. According to the publisher, the game will be getting a dual language option, the ability to switch between the original soundtrack and a rearranged one, tweaks to high speed mode, a new auto-save feature and shortened load times.
[Original Story] Square Enix has been doing an excellent job in making older entries of the Final Fantasy series available on modern hardware. The only game that had yet to be made available on modern consoles and PC was Final Fantasy XII, but it seems like players will soon be able to enjoy the game on PlayStation 4 in the near future.
Earlier today, Square Enix shared on its official Japanese YouTube channel a new trailer for the highly requested Final Fantasy XII HD Remaster, which will be called Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age. Not much is currently known about the remaster, other than the fact that it will be released on PlayStation 4 next year. No other platform has been confirmed at the time, but it’s a PC release is not unlikely, given how all Final Fantasy games, not counting Final Fantasy XII, are available on Steam.
Some screenshots have also been made available, and you can check them out right below.
While it hasn’t been specified, it’s likely that the Final Fantasy XII HD Remaster will be based on the Final Fantasy XII International release, which features, among a variety of new features, the Zodiac Job System. In the original Final Fantasy XII, players are able to unlock the full License Board for all characters; in the International version, players need to choose a Job from a list, and are only able to unlock license available for the specific job, which cannot be changed after the initial selection.
Final Fantasy XII HD Remaster will launch sometime during 2017 on PlayStation 4. We will keep you updated on the game as soon as more comes in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news on the new Final Fantasy series remaster.
