Another Final Fantasy hits PlayStation 4 and this time it's a remaster of a well loved (I presume) PlayStation 2 title.
Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is a remaster of the 12th instalment in the main Final Fantasy series from Square Enix. Final Fantasy XII was originally released on the PlayStation 2 back in March 2006, and continues the franchise's JRPG gameplay. XII did however take a slightly different approach compared to its predecessors, using an Active Dimension Battle system for enemy encounters in real-time. In addition the random encounters is not in this instalment which in my opinion is a good thing.
Unlike the original PS2 localised release, this version is based on the Japanese International Zodiac System, where the player can set job roles for every character in his team. These job roles stick with the characters throughout the entire story. The story itself is reported to take at least 50+ hours to complete which is pretty good. The gameplay is also locked to 30fps while the graphics have been remastered. The Zodiac Age also offers English & Japanese audio options.
This Steelbook Launch Edition is basically the game in a steelbook case plus a download code for the original background music soundtrack. Not much to say but it's got some really nice art on the front side of the case.
