The announcement comes directly from the Final Fantasy 30th anniversary event held on January 31st.

Thanks for the update, Scruff!

July is mid-year, but I'm happy enough. I mean, March: ME: Andromeda, April: Persona 5... July: FFXII: TZA seems like a good pacing.

Sorry! If it helps, me and Mr. Carny only got a PS4 because my brother was selling his for like dirt cheap, and we couldn't pass up that offer. At 200, that's like 100 between us, which is a steal given that was like a year ago.

I love the poster for it! Hopefully in the coming year it'll get a wider release.

I think I used Penelo the most out of all the main characters, mainly because she appears so little in the actual story.

Really? This is actually much later than I expected.

The trophy list for the game was revealed last week. Yet the game is still ~5 1/2 months out from release. Other games like Dead Rising have had their trophy list revealed a mere two months before the official release date.

I wonder what the hold up is. I don't mind though, considering this gives me time to work through my backlog.

What's taking so long? Aren't they just making the I version prettier?

Actually, this is still faster than Square Enix's last HD Remaster with Final Fantasy X and X-2. They were announced at TGS 2011 and weren't released in Japan until 2 years later in December 2013. The North American release of the game was over 2 and a half years after the initial TGS announcement.

XII: The Zodiac Age was announced in June 2016. So this is just over a year between the announcement and the release.

However, I think this is proof that SE both takes longer to remaster games and continues to announce games far too early. Dead Rising's PS4 remaster wasn't announced until July, and was officially released only two months later in September. Similarly, the Bioshock collection was announced in June and was also released in September.

Ultimately I'm disappointed that Square Enix is suffering from these issues, but I appreciate that there is an improvement.

I think she did that pose in some cutscene prior to the game's release on PS2. Might be a throwback to that.
