all the tracks

i can't tell if the one playing on the teaser site is a new recording since it's been a long time since i've really listened to it
http://www.jp.square-enix.com/ff12_tza/


i saw about this from a push notification from the ff portal app which just said 'ffxii the zodiac age release period announced' and i was a little scared it would be some spin-off mobile game but you pulled it off square, thank you

I've listened to it a few times now and by the sound of the strings/violins playing right before the epic part, plus little details and oddbits here and there that are different (particularly the 2nd violins right before epic part), this is definitely a new recording, at least parts of it.

hhhhhhuuuuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh


okay heart definitely pounding nao

So hyped, I was saying to my friend a couple of days ago that this has to be getting announced soon and here it is. Looking forward to playing it through again, I only cleared it once when it was released and have forgotten most of it, so it will be like rediscovering it all over again.

Now that they have a strong hardware, do you think they will keep this feature or remove it?

^ Very interesting question.
If they decide to expand on the capacity/ queue logic, we'll be seeing a lot of interesting changes in game mechanics. Which means there'd be tons of new micro management strategies to create - it'd really change some of the fights completely. You'd no longer be able to use Break to still Yiazmat, or spam Berserk/Attack with Holy/Flare/Ardor etc.

Same with all the various glitches and cheats. They fixed some of them for Platinum ed/ IZJS (< 0 percent chance glitch), so who's to say they won't do more for a remaster/ new game mechanics? I can totally see them removing the spawn/ Immobilize glitch, and the ATB reset glitch.

This will set up an entire new speedrunning category. Or maybe not, seeing how "popular" IZJS is with the speedrunning community

I'm so hyped for this! I haven't played FFXII since it first came out and I've definitely never played the Zodiac version before. I can't wait to get more details about this. Hopefully we'll hear more about it at E3.

I just woke up and this was literally the first thing I saw when I checked Facebook. Talk about a great way to start off your day!

Nice, now I might finally finish this game. Between the Zodiac Job System and grinding-times cut by two thirds, I daresay it's doable now.
