PlayStation Now is Getting a Series of Classic Final Fantasy Games Throughout the Holidays

The enhancements included in Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age have been detailed last month by Square Enix producer Hiroaki Kato, who also confirmed that the game will come with PlayStation 4 Pro support.

When creating the HD version of the visuals, we were careful to preserve the unique graphical texture of Akihiko Yoshida’s character illustrations while enhancing the expressiveness with modern technology.

And so, not only did we increase the resolution of the character models, but we have also strived to improve the textures such as the skin, hair, cloth, leather, metal, and any other material.

We have also improved the expressiveness of light and shadow by implementing modern lighting technology. The world inside the game can now be enjoyed with a greater sense of atmosphere and depth as we have enhanced the natural blur (depth of field) and soft lighting (ambient occlusion).

Oh yes, the resolution increases even more if you play this title on a 4K compatible TV with a PS4 Pro, so please try it out if you have the environment to do so.

Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age launches exclusively on PlayStation 4 on July 11th.
