It was recently revealed that PlayStation 2’s Final Fantasy 12 would be getting the HD remaster treatment on PlayStation 4, and now somebody has pitted the two against each other in a graphics comparison video. The video was done by YouTuber Cycu1, breaking down everything shown in the new trailer compared to the original game.
While there’s definitely an improvement to be found in the new game, it isn’t mind blowing or anything like that. That’s to be expected though, considering that there’s only so much you can do to touch up a PlayStation 2 game. It will be interesting to see how things look with the actual gameplay and how smoothly everything runs on PlayStation 4.
While Final Fantasy 12 has its fans, it was seen by many as a weaker installment in the series due to a lame protagonist in Vaan and a dull combat system. This new version will also feature auto-save, quicker load times and an enhanced turbo mode. The game’s score has also been re-recorded, though the game will give you the option to pick between the new score and the original.
Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age is set to launch for PlayStation 4 in 2017, and you can check out the graphics comparison video below.
