Final Fantasy XII remaster heading to PS4 in 2017 - Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age for PS4 News

UPDATE: Square Enix has released further details on the Final Fantasy XII remaster, confirming that it will include the 'Zodiac Job System' introduced in a Japanese-only follow up to the original release, letting players take part in a 12-job character progression system.

It will also feature character models and movie scenes "fully remastered in high-definition", plus newly-recorded background music, "high-definition voicing" and support for 7.1 surround sound. You'll also have the option to switch between the original and newly remastered soundtrack.

On top of that, there'll be a new trial mode that lets players battle against enemies "in up to 100 successive battles", along with the usual new features like trophy support, auto-save and shortened loading times. The game will arrive in the UK next year.

ORIGINAL REPORT: Final Fantasy XII is being remastered for PS4, Square Enix has announced.

Due for release in 2017, the RPG will feature remastered high-definition visuals and be titled 'Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age'. Further details have yet to be confirmed, although you can check out a 2 minute teaser trailer above or the first screenshots here.

You probably shouldn't expect a complete remake similar to Final Fantasy VII Remake, however: this looks similar to the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster released by Square Enix last year, sporting improved textures and resolution over the original release.

Final Fantasy XII launched on PS2 back in 2006. The next game in the series, meanwhile, Final Fantasy XV, arrives on PS4 and Xbox One this September.
