New "Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age" Screenshots Emerge

As an example, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age upgrades the graphics of the PlayStation 2 game into HD, while also making slight improvements to the gameplay and adding a Job system that was only accessible in an exclusive edition released in Japan. Thus, that FF7 Remake reveal was vindication and also some insane fan fulfillment as there was a large camp that doubted the game would ever get a proper HD remake. Square Enix is no stranger to such remasters, as such was their approach with the Kingdom Hearts franchise.

The news comes as Square Enix remains hard at work in the development of the Final Fantasy VII Remake, which was first announced at E3 2015.

Given Square Enix's history of remastering old titles, a remake for other Final Fantasy entries isn't all that far-fetched.

'Final Fantasy VIII Remake' Possible?

Of course, I'm in the camp that is optimistic about the FF7 remake, but I also understand that many fans are anxious that some of FF7's charm will be lost in transition.

Square Enix has released a gaggle of new screenshots from the upcoming Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age. While the company would not get the ire of Konami remaking an older Metal Gear Solid game without Hideo Kojima, those key ex-Square staff members were crucial to the development of those FF games. Could any other developer or game series fit the bill? "That means a [future game] is more likely to be a remake", the game director went on to say.

There are only two installments to choose from -"Final Fantasy 8" and "Final Fantasy 9".

Final Fantasy 15, the latest mainline Final Fantasy game, only came out back in November of previous year. Furthermore, Final Fantasy 8 and 9 each have quite a following in their own right. Still, fans continue to keep their fingers crossed in hopes of seeing their favorite characters back in action. Let us know your most cherished FF memories!
