Final Fantasy XII has been long due for a proper HD Remaster for the current generation consoles. Final Fantasy producer Yoshinori Kitase had talked about a potential Final Fantasy XII HD remaster depending on the success of Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD.
I really hope a FFXII HD becomes a reality
hands down my favorite modern Final Fantasy, even with the annoying English Vaan voice. Would love to play this on PS4 in proper widescreen HD.
I'm Captain Basch Fon Ronsenburg of Dalmasca!!
I want to play it on the Vita.
As far as I'm concerned, it's the only modern Final Fantasy.
Even on my BC PS3 and 55" HDTV FF12 still looks good and of course the gameplay is great. After a long hiatus FF12 brought back the options of active and passive turn-base switching which IMHO had been sadly missing since FF6. What made FF12 unique out of all the FF games was the fact that you did not move into a fight arena but fought in the area where you encountered the enemy. Also no more random encounters since you could see the enemy and if possible avoid them. Also the maps were so much larger. Note: FF13 allowed you to see your enemy but still used the fight arena as well as active turn base only and a more simplified version of the FF12 tactics programming. One feature which probably not many are aware is as you increased in levels lower level creatures avoided you unless you deliberately attacked them. @babadivad Now that brings back memories.
fully agree. i still have the game. The last amazing FF game i played. I expected SE to announce it at TGS but there is still hope.
Would love it on Vita and PS4. I wonder if Square would grant us crossbuy for once.
I loved XII too... more than X. Don't know if it's my favorite, but it's one of my favorites. Wish they would have just done a X and XII HD on one disc and skipped X-2.
Can't believe I leveled up all of my characters to 99. Crazy time grinding in this game back in the day. Still need to capture the last 2 summons. Might need to use a strategy guide or gamefaqs since they were so difficult to defeat. Haven't even beaten this game yet. My last save is somewhere towards the end. Not sure if I could go thru a remaster. Trophies would drive me insane lol
Never got to play it so playing it in HD would be nice.
My first FF game, never actually beat it cause I stopped playing right at the final boss.
Well, it is the only main entry that hasnt got the HD treatment; so i expect it to be more a matter of time than anything else
It would be so awesome. It's my favorite FF game almost, beaten only by FF IX.
I was pretty gutted it wasn't announced at TGS. I was so sure it would be. Need this game on Vita
Comes out November 3rd of this year. Hopefully that means they're waiting for SE to formally announce XII HD so they can start selling it! XII was pretty awesome and when an HD version gets announced, I'm guessing that means we're getting the international version, which I never got to play.
pcsx2, international in hd is amazing!
Xii and Xii-2 HD collection would be awesome
By XII-2 do you mean Revenant Wings that came out on DS? If so then I fully agree. A XII HD Remaster should feature that as well as the International Zodiac Job System
Please be on Vita.
The Vita is just amazing for old games! Games id kill for to come to vita would be.. Socom1&2 Ico Shadow of the colossus Xenosaga series from ps2 StarOcean games from ps2 Demons Souls or Dark Souls Awww the fapping...
man, I'd give anything for a xenosaga collection on vita.. I only got to play episode 1 on ps2.
Not going to happen i've lost hope for anything after gravity rush went to ps4
Yeah, but that was Sony. Third party cares more about the Vita than Sony does. So of course Gravity Rush went to PS4, i saw that coming a mile away after Tearaway did the same. I wonder what other Sony owned Vita IP will jump ship to PS4. *sigh*
The only Final Fantasy I never got a chance to beat, would love to finally be able to put some time into this one.
For a modern FF i did get into a little. I think i had around 100hrs in it and never finished it. Enough time has passed that id really like to go back to it and hopefully finish it. And like a few other's here have said, id freaking love this on the vita. And it could look really good on the ps4!!!
Ewww I really hope so and I hope it's the International version with the Zodiac job system included. I've been wanting to revisit this game for awhile now. HD Remaster would be greatly appreciated.
I need this. I enjoyed it more than FFX when played it years ago.
While I did like FFX I personally think that FFXII had much better features. I don't like stating one Final Fantasy games is better than another since they all have their pluses and minuses. The only ones I have not played are FF1 to FF3 and FF9 although I am not including FF11 and FF14 since I don't play online.
I heartily recommend IX. Funniest in the series, lovable, memorable characters, and gameplay like a mixture of the old school and VII combined. And the best minigames outside of triple triad. Dat jump rope game tho. Felt like a Jedi at 100 jumps.
Why not, it's like saying I like mangos better than oranges. For me, I did not get what's fun about ff8 or the really disappointing 13. My most favorite is 6,9, and Tactics. And also you should play 9, it's quite easy, didn't need much grinding, compared to 6,7,or 8 the story is very light, most of all is the characters and the world itself.
I, III, IX, and XIV are all good though.
What do I need to sell for it to happen? Kidney? My entire gaming collection?
Don't tease me like that.
haha right after I started digging for news this morning I see this post. It's coming!
Would be awesome. Great game
Galtea stand watch over your life. That I be considered worthy.
I feel like I've walked into some alternate reality; this was a horrible FF almost as bad as 13. I wonder if kids even bother with the classics like 4 or 6, which would be too bad because they're far better, or has the new generation gone for graphics completely over gameplay?
This game had some of the best gameplay of any Final Fantasy. I'm guessing you were one of those who wouldn't stop whining about stationary turn-based battles being the only thing that makes a game a Final Fantasy game, and how it's nothing like X. Well, you got your wish with XIII. Comparing it to XIII like that shows how little of a clue you actually have.
"Relax, kiddie..." This from the sage, poised mind that responded by getting emotional, throwing all the toys out of the crib and calling the opposing view point "fat" and playing up a tired stereotype when being called unceremoniously on its BS. Yes, you sure got me. I hope I can be as vapid as you when I grow up.
I'm curious why you say it's almost as bad as 13?
Ff13 was enjoyable
I agree with you (though I skipped 13). The story and character development in 12 were horrible. The plot had a terribly long stretch where it was "Go here and get this thing. Oh wait, we can't use/don't need that thing - go get this other thing instead. Oh wait, we can't use/don't need that either." All for some war I found it very hard to care about and for characters with either no point or no personality (save Balthier and Fran). Factor in all of the hunts and side quests that had nothing to do with the story and had no real story themselves, along with a battle system that, at least for me, I didn't enjoy, and it was easily my least favorite FF game that I've played. Maybe it's something I'd give another shot in a remake, and I'm glad for all the people who actually liked it if it actually gets the HD treatment (different strokes for different folks and all that), but I'm not excited.
Never got around to really playing this one. I would be interested.
This was the best FF since IX. I might have enjoyed it even more though because the mob hunts and finding all Espers was addicting as hell. I love the sh*t out of this game. I'd buy this day one for the PS4. Would be better if the Zodiac system was included and the story was paced better. Also felt the judges needed more backstory. Would be cool if we got more of that.
Exactly man, the crazy hunts, espers, and secret weapons if i may add.. Zodiac Job System too, it fixed the unbalanced weapon system a bit.. This is one the games that the gameplay so deep and addcitive, I don't care about how mediocre the story and the characters are..
Yes, I remember specifically spending hours trying to get a Deathbringer drop from Ithuno in Barheim Passage.
@asadachi Dude, you come across as a douche. Is it really necessary to belittle people for having different opinions? FF XII was incredible and this is coming from someone who started playing these games back on the old Nintendo systems, you elitist turd.
I'd like for this to happen more so than any other remake but isn't this old news? Yoshinori Kitase said this about a year ago.
Nice FF entry I would like to play again. Story 7/10 Gameplay 9/10 Graphics 9/10 (at that time) Sound 8/10 Length 10/10 I'd say let's get this baby on ps4.
Pretty much this right here. I really feel like any re-release of FFXII needs some additional content or even just sidequests that expand the lore. It's the second half that seemed to lack that narrative oomph, along with a smaller second town even though it was the capital and talked up the whole time, a lackluster airship that did less than Teleport Stones (after a story filled with airships!), and a sudden "Hey, go to the final stage" leap in the plot. The first half was so interesting that the second half seemed like they ran out of money and gave up. But that gameplay was great! I loved being able to program my party members via Gambits, and with the Zodiac Edition in place, the leveling system is much better.
I still have the original on PS1 , is it worth anything ?
this game had incredible music, 10/10
Please be true.
One of my fav FFs by miles, really hope this turns out to be true. I'll be ready again for Yiazmat ^^ /drools
Yeeeeeeeey more remakes...
