Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age makes its PC debut with a host of new features.
The PC release of Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age follows last year’s successful PlayStation 4 reissue, which has so far sold over one million copies. The PC version features the same visual and gameplay enhancements, as well as a remastered soundtrack, plus new Speed and Trial modes.
In addition, the PC release gets its own range of improvements. There’s full controller support, Steam Trading Cards, and 60FPS gameplay. The port is also compatible with 21:9 ratio ultra-wide monitors, and up to three HD screens can be used to create an almighty 48:9 display.
Elsewhere, you can access New Game Plus and New Game Minus options from the start of the game, plus there’s new functionality that grants players max License Points and Gil from the configuration screen.
The feature we’re most excited about is the option to switch between three versions of the game’s majestic soundtrack: the Sakimoto original, the re-orchestrated version, and the soundtrack version.
Final Fantasy XII developer Q&A
There’s a new Final Fantasy XII trailer to celebrate the game’s release, but of more interest to fans will be the new Q&A video with producer Hiroaki Kato, and director Takashi Katano.
Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is on sale until February 8 for the discounted price of just £27.99 / €39.99. The game includes a bonus three-track digital music compilation and a Steam Skin illustrated by Isamu Kamikokuryo.
