Square Enix teases PS4 remaster of Final Fantasy XII

MANILA, Philippines – Ahead of E3, Square Enix has announced a PlayStation 4 remastered version of 2006 role-playing game Final Fantasy XII.

The title, now called Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, will reportedly be based on Final Fantasy XII International Zodiac Job System, which was a re-release of the game with a modified character development system.

Famitsu added in its report that Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age would feature improved character models and better cutscenes, as well as auto-saving, shorter load times, and an enhanced turbo mode for faster play.

While the music has been re-recorded, it has also been rumored that the game will feature English and Japanese voicing, as well as a choice between the original musical score and the re-recording.
