Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, an HD remaster of the 2006 PlayStation 2 Final Fantasy game, already boasted a number of improvements when it landed on PlayStation 4 and PC, released in 2017 and 2018 respectively. That version of the game was itself based on a Japan-only re-release of the PS2 game from a decade prior, giving western fans something new. Now players who have been patiently waiting for the Final Fantasy XII to come to other consoles, or people looking to buy and play it once again, will have a few extra incentives.

The Xbox One and Switch ports of the game will allow a license change, letting players respec their party members' jobs as they see fit. Additionally, there are more gambit slots for party members, as well as the ability to switch between them with named descriptions, like "Fire Boss" or "Exploration". An improved New Game + mode allows characters to start the game at level 90 and bring over items, weapons, magic, and more from the previous play through.

The Xbox One version sports the X enhancement of running the game at 60 FPS, which was previously only available to the PC. You can check out a new trailer of the game below.

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age lands on Xbox One and Switch on April 30.
