Relive a new era as Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age heads to Switch, Xbox One today

Square Enix has just announced that it has released its remastered RPG Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age for Nintendo Switch and Xbox One today. The re-release gives players new content, a new soundtrack they can switch on the fly, as well as 60 FPS capabilities for Xbox One X users.

Based on the 12th numbered entry in the smash hit FINAL FANTASY series that has sold over 6 million units worldwide, FINAL FANTASY XII THE ZODIAC AGE has re-worked the game’s design and re-mastered their visuals in full-HD, making full use of current generation hardware capabilities to improve the graphical and audio quality for the ultimate play experience. FINAL FANTASY XII THE ZODIAC AGE takes place in the breath-taking world of Ivalice, where magic is commonplace and airships fill the sky. The small kingdom of Dalmasca is caught between warring empires Archadia and Rozarria, and the lone heir to the Dalmascan throne, Princess Ashe has devoted herself to forming a resistance to liberate her homeland. The story begins when Ashe meets Vaan, a young thief who dreams of flying free in the skies, as their adventure changes the destiny of the world’s greatest nations.

This version includes the ability to switch soundtracks from modern to classic, a trial mode, as well as a variety of new enhancements including:

  • License Reset Function: By talking to Clan Centurio’s leader Montblanc in Rabanastre, players can reset and change their party member’s jobs, allowing them to customize the jobs of their party as desired.
  • Additional Gambit Sets: Gambits allow players to customize their party’s AI. Players can now create three unique sets, allowing players to switch between sets for different situations, such as map exploration or boss fights.
  • Improved “New Game+”: Allows users to start the game with party members at level 90 and carry over some items like weapons, magic and gils obtained during previous playthroughs
  • Specific to Xbox One X – Supports 60fps

Ron loved The Zodiac Age, as seen in his review for the PlayStation 4 version. Stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.

  1. I found the gambit system to bee very cool but I just couldn’t get into the story…not that there seemed to be much story.

    I am glad the offer the speeding up battles setting though that will make a lot of tedium go away.

  2. Yeah, the story picks up later but the 4X speed and the right gambits makes the game play itself. Good for leveling, though.

  3. When I did that I found that while it was pretty the story was such … well rubbish that I lost interest in the game.

    Darn shame too because I think the setting is really interesting.
