Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy XII is headed to the PS4 in 2017. A teaser trailer was released alongside the announcement and revealed that the name of the HD remaster will be Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age.

The trailer shows the return to the game’s world of Ivalice and its cast of characters, all of which has undergone a major improvement in the graphics department. Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age will also include the Zodiac job system which until now has been unavailable in western versions of the game. The HD remaster will also include a new trial mode which will allow players to fight up to 100 successive battles in a row.

The Zodiac Age will come with a remastered version of its soundtrack with the option of switching to the game’s original.

Final Fantasy XII is the story of a small kingdom caught between warring nations and the small group of adventurers who rally together to fight a tyrannical empire. Originally released in March 2006, Final Fantasy XII was well received by critics and fans and sold over five million copies in the year it was released.

According to Square Enix, Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age will be playable at this year’s E3.

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—above, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
