And, here it is:

“In Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, players are transported to the grand world of Ivalice where magic is commonplace and airships fill the skies. War has engulfed the kingdom of Dalmasca, leaving it in ruin and uncertainty. Princess Ashe, the only surviving heir to the Dalmascan throne, devotes herself to the resistance to liberate her country. Accompanied by Vaan, a young man who lost his family in the war, together these unlikely allies and their companions lead the fight for the freedom of their homeland.”

The is an updated version of the Playstation 2 classic released over a decade ago, with new HD remastered graphics, 7.1 surround sound, gameplay improvements, new game modes and more.

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age will be available for the PlayStation 4 on July 11th, 2017. For more information, visit:

Personal thoughts: I thought I said goodbye to the original game of long ago, but suddenly its strange beauty in both the story and gameplay calls me back (espcially from this trailer). the original was not my favorite of the Final Fantasy RPGs but does have a special place in my collection for what it was looking to do. I really like the character designs, though not as emotionally invested in them as a group. I think this because there was more game than story content. The challenge and better part of the game is within configuring the characters for combat and the difficult side quests. I think I will pick this up eventually, in hopes that this version will be a truer, more defined version of the original.
