Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age Release Date Revealed

The updated and remastered FFXII is coming to a PS4 near you this July!

The worldwide release date of the remastered Final Fantasy XII was announced at the Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary event's Opening Ceremony today. Originally unveiled in June last year, PS4 owners will be able to pick up The Zodiac Age on July 11th in North America and Europe, or July 13th in Japan.

Heavily updated from the original release on PS2, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is based on the improved International Version of the game that was never released outside of Japan (oh, the irony). Improvements include the addition of a revamped job system and relevant License Boards, faster movement speeds and numerous battle tweaks.

The HD remaster also includes -- naturally -- a full update on the graphics and sounds, bringing the already pretty-for-the-era game up to modern standards. Improved loading times and auto-save functionality will also be included, all of which are welcome additions.

If you can't wait that long to re-experience the wonders of Ivalice, we've already shown off some updated gameplay footage from E3 2016 for you to enjoy.

There'll be more Final Fantasy related news in the coming days as the 30th Anniversary continues, so stay tuned!
