Square Enix has revealed on the official site for Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age that the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One versions will have some extra features to entice new players.
Here are the improvements according to Square Enix:
- License Reset Function: By talking to Clan Centurio’s leader Montblanc in Rabanastre, players can reset and change their party member’s jobs, allowing them to customize the jobs of their party as desired.
- Additional Gambit Sets: Gambits allow players to customize their party’s AI. Players can now create three unique sets, allowing players to switch between sets for different situations, such as map exploration or boss fights.
- Improved “New Game+”: Allows users to start the game with party members at level 90 and carry over some items like weapons, magic and gils obtained during previous playthroughs
- Specific to Xbox One X – Supports 60fps
Final Fantasy XII‘s original art director Isamu Kamikokuryo left Square Enix a couple years ago after having spent over 18 years with the company but showed that he’s still close to the company by drawing a special illustration:
