Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age Comes To PS4 In July

Square Enix is currently holding an event to celebrate 30 years of Final Fantasy. There’s plenty of titbits of news slowly trickling out, with a confirmed release date for Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age being one of them.

The eagerly anticipated remaster will launch in both Europe and North America on July 11th. Strangely enough, the Japanese version will come two days later, the 13th also marking its release in other Asia territories.

A trophy list for the game has recently been published too, for those interested.

Senior Editor bursting with lukewarm takes and useless gaming trivia. May as well surgically attach my DualSense at this point.


  1. There’s probably a good chance it’s released on the 14th in the UK, since that’s a Friday.

    Good to see there’s a trophy for defeating Yiazmat there. One of the most annoying FF bosses ever, mainly due to stupidly high HP. Although it might be easier in the “international” version the remaster is based on. (“International” meaning “only in Japan”, apparently)

  2. What an odd date format they’re using!

    I’ve never played this, I know there’s a lot of love for it but most older games don’t age well, in fact I haven’t played a game this old in the last few years that still holds its own.

    • What’s odd about that date format? It’s more sensible than that horrible US month-day-year format.

      It’s used by 5 times as many people as that horrible abomination! (Mostly due to China, but Japan and some others too). Which is only half the number of people that use the correct day-month-year format.

      It’s also the most sensible format for computers to use. Easy to sort if you start with the biggest thing (year, then month) and just join them all together (with an extra zero where necessary) and sort them that way. Any other format gets into a mess quickly. (Even the UNIX way of “seconds since 1970” ran into problems in 2001 once it hit a billion seconds and it all shifted from 9 to 10 digits)

      I’m rambling again, aren’t I?

      • Informative rambling I guess, but yeah, rambling!

  3. This is actually the only “proper” format aside from dd-mm-yyyy in my mind.

    You see, for example if you name your files with date in the name, like and sort them by name, your files will be sorted perfectly according to the date! Of course, I’m assuming here that they took the ‘0’ out of ’07’ for readability purposes ;)

    • I’m glad I’m not the only one who feels the need to defend date formats. That really would be quite sad if I was ;)
