Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age

One of my personal favorites was plowing through the Draklor laboratories with Zalera:
Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill!

Zodiac Age has officially surpassed the 1 million mark for a total of physical and digital copies of the game sold. As a reward, they've released a remastered version of the game's intro menu, which should have been in the fucking game in the first place.



And also, a new piece of artwork by Isamu Kamikokuryo!

I've said this before, but there are only two things that would make me happy when it comes to this game: a PC release and the ability to switch between the regular and Zodiac license boards. I expect the first one sooner or later but the latter will probably never happen.

Well, they've pretty much done FFXII/T: The Raid Series in FFXIV. I'd be very much surprised if they didn't follow that up with a release of FFXII for PC. Actually, I'd like them to do a PC port of Tactics too.
 
No Steam release, the happy news was that they are patching in the sky pirates den, there's a 32% discount on it soon in Japan and there's a Viera theme for PS4. They also promoted the OST.

"We're adding something back to the remake that we cut from the original."

That's good, I guess. :closedmonster:

Hahaha they're adding cheats? And the original sound files? Well someone got creative...

(I mean it's kind of like the 9999 hit cheat in FFIX. First I loved it and then I realized it's cheating me of the real game experience. I understand the license thing was frustrating for a lot of people but being able to see all the licenses up front fixed that. Also, this means the only OP limitation is in the equipment, which unlocks as you move forward with the story. IMO the double job system was cheat more than enough.

... I think I'm just generally against "story mode", which this cheat is. Are we playing a game or not? You can look up all the cutscenes on YouTube ffs)

Just out of interest, what is the difference between the "original" and "soundtrack" options for the background music? Compression?
From https://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/191202-final-fantasy-xii-the-zodiac-age/75558619:

"I believe Original is a reproduction of what the music and other effects sounded like coming from the PS2 sound card while OST is from the Original Soundtrack CDs. The difference would be like listening to an mp3 vs a CD. Some people will be able to hear a difference, especially with on decent audio equipment, while others will not."

*Shrug* Don't really see the point, but. Gotta catch'em all etc
