My uncle bought me Final Fantasy XII for my birthday in 2006. At 10 years old, a lot of the combat mechanics and branching plotlines were confusing. Regardless, I was enamored with the game’s vibrancy: I specifically recall marveling at hair and garments fluttering in desert winds as well as azure sparks flashing from clanging swords and shields. To this day, it remains my favorite Final Fantasy.
The game originally released as a PlayStation 2 exclusive, but in the last two years, a remaster called, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age has launched on PlayStation 4 and PC with performance enhancements, deeper job customization, and various quality-of-life changes. Now, Square Enix is finally releasing the remaster on Xbox One and Switch at the end of the month. If you’ve never experienced Final Fantasy XII, this is why you should jump at the chance now.
