The remaster, whose full title is Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, was first announced in June 2016. It reportedly features better-looking backgrounds, character models, and cutscenes, while there will also be support for 7.1 surround sound. Additionally, players can choose between Japanese and English voices, while there will also be the option to use the "original" music or the "re-recorded" score.
