It seems we're getting closer to an official announcement but do the die-hard Final Fantasy followers even care about an HD Remaster for FFXII?
Yes, it's one of the best Final Fantasy games.
I think not. FFXII have the gameplay that i always want in a FF game, except the way we control the espers and how any of them don't have a real impact in the combat. But, the history...... is incredibly boring as hell! Nothing comparable with FFVII, FFVIII or FFX!
I would be excited because I actually never played this game.
I still have my PS2 version and it looks quite nice graphically when played on my BC PS3 to my 55" HDTV. FF12 is the first and to date only FF game that did not move you into what I call a "Fight Arena". Basically you could always see the enemy coming and you fought in the area you were originally in, not only that but you could even move around as well. Some Major Boss battles were traditional however there were only a few of those. Being able to move around the battle field was a great feature especially when confronting creatures that were three to five times your height. Another thing FF12 did was to bring back active turn-base combat although you could switch to turn-base if the action got too hectic. FF4, FF5 and FF6 also had switchable active turn-base and turn-base while all other FF's up to FF10 were turn based only. FF13 and FF13-2 were active turn base only although they had a more simplified program attribute setup than the one FF12 had. @BoyBigEyes I hardly ever called out the espers since pretty much all enemies could be destroyed with combinations of buffs, healing and attack spells as well as brute force. You could even switch your characters out and switch in a fresher character in a similar way to FF10.
Of course it does, this is the only mainline Final Fantasy game that hasn't been rereleased on another platform
FF 9 Too.
FFIX was rereleased on PSN
I don't have PS 3 or PS 4.
Exactly. I seriously can't wait for this to come out. It honestly can't be soon enough.
bought a ps2 a couple of months ago to play through this again. Mine stopped working and since Sony refuses to support BC for the PS3/PS4 there was no other way... That said, PS2 was really cheap and I wasn't aware of how small that latest model was... looks amazing.
@Tiqila I was talking about the one on Xbox 360/PS3. You're talking about Till The End of Time. Which is also a great one, and one of my personal favorites.
Hell yes 12 is my favourite
XII is so underrated. Haven't played the game since I had my PS2, this is day one for me.
Sure,Why not ? i still not finish game.
My PS 2 is dead that why i can't finish game.
Of course. Most important FF remake to me.
does the author even deserve another shot at another article? I think not!!!!!!!!!
OH HELL YEAH and be it International Zodiac Job System.
Clickbait article but I don't care....Yes it does dammit!!
Ummm yes last great sp ff before the God awful ff13
is this the one with the child bride?
Yup, we sure do.
Imo it's better than FFX so yes it does. Why shouldn't it deserve if so many others get it too?
I liked twelve story. But I hated having to get licence points and the spells. It should have been little more like the sphere grid, you want firaga then you spend the license points and you have it. Not "oh I can get the license for firaga but I have no clue where to find the actual spell
Basically you could relate license points to the sphere grid since they do allow they character to equip weapons and armor according to their points. Purchasing spells and techniques is a great part of the game since once you purchase one all others can use it providing they have the license to do so. Certain spells, techniques, weapons and armor cannot be picked up or purchased until you have advanced further in the game. In other words you can't just grind for them although it is possible you could uncover all licenses by grinding (much good it will do you though) in the first area you go to which is the "Dalmasca Estersand".
Hell yeah, FF XII was awesome!
It doesn't need a remake. I was playing it when ps3 was out, and its visuals were convincingly cinematic even on the PS2. The aliasing and res could always be better, but they did a great job with it. Besides, the story was too complex. Nobody really remembers or cares about it. Does anybody rememeber the party's name? There was Fran (fahn?), baltier..... um... i mean those both might be wrong. Regardless, it looked good enough lol.
Not a remake, remaster. TLOU for example didn't need a remaster but it was done anyway and for so many others too.
I think a full rpg story is beyond your understanding if you can't even keep a few names of characters in your head.
How about: Vaan - Lost his family during the war. Want's to be a Sky Pirate. Penelo - Lost her family during the war. Vaan's childhood friend. Ashe - Former princess thought dead. Balthier - Sky pirate Fran - Viera warrior. Balthier's partner. She really stands out in many ways. ;-) Basch - Former general and framed for murder of his king There are other's who sometimes fight with you although you don't have control over them. Of course there are your enemies which includes human, inhuman and beast.
When you say their names, I immediately remember them lol. Balthier and Basch are a little fussy. Balthier is the skinnier fancy one, and basch is the warrior guy with the blondish slicked back hair, right? Idk, it blows my mind people can remember this stuff after all these years, but maybe I just didn't find it gripping. The mid-development re-purposing of the protagonist was apparent for me; there didn't seem to be enough of a focus.
I'll buy it. At this point it's just to hard not to put all these remasters next to each other on my shelf. "Wanna play Final Fantasy?" "Ya!!!" "Alright, which one?" *falls over from shock*
I would say that is a problem with all RPG's especially when you get into interesting side quests which sometime turn out to be major quests. Skyrim and Oblivion have these in spades. I did like the FF12 hunts which could take you just about anywhere. Fortunately you did have fast travel. Personally I have found most FF games from FF4 on take from 40 to 80 hours to complete unless you cheat or just follow a walk through. I think I did spend over 100 hours on FF12. In FF10 there is a dungeon called the Omega Ruins you can go to towards the end of the game which is surprisingly hard since I was wiped out in the first battle. It took me over 20 hours to complete and I had a great time doing it.
I remember the Omega Ruins. I loved FF10. I have good memories of 12, however my saves kept getting corrupted back in the day so I could never finish the darn game.
Ummmmmmmm yesssssss of course ppl need to stop not giving credit to XII, that game is a masterpiece, I feel like the majority of ppl def like x over XII cuz many found the gameplay in XII stale and boring like an mmo but its anything but!!! The gameplay is intriging and strategic the hunts and locations were brilliant, XII is a one of a kind game no doubt it deserves a remaster
