Square Enix’s Japanese YouTube account has just posted the above video, confirming that Final Fanatsy XII HD will be coming to the PlayStation 4. It has no release date, but “2017” was shown at the end of the video.
Want to know what you can probably look forward to in this version? Good news, I wrote about that shit when I detailed the “Zodiac Job System” changes right here:
Final Fantasy XII HD Coming to PS4 as The Zodiac Age
Mind, not all of those might apply to this one, but it’d be very surprising if most of that doesn’t hold up. I expect basically Final Fantasy XII: Zodiac Job System with a PS4-level HD treatment. Also note that the screenshots in that little slideshow above are from a feature I wrote last summer when FFXII HD was first leaked, and that most of the screenshots are from emulated PC versions that various users posted.
Unlike the other offline PS2 Final Fantasy games FFX and FFX-2, it currently looks as though FFXII will be skipping the Vita because fuck the Vita. Only the PS4 logo was shown at the end of this trailer.
Thanks go out to reader Aaron for the tip.
Quick Addition: A post on the PlayStation Blog has confirmed that the changes I mention in the gallery/slideshow above are in this game, plus auto-save and reduced load times, among a few other things. They also shared these three screenshots:
