Today Square Enix aired a special broadcast focusing on the upcoming release for Nintendo Switch and Xbox One of Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age.
During the livestream, the team showcased some of the new elements that will appear on the new platforms, specifically on Nintendo Switch. We get to see the ability to reset your License Boards, and the additional gambit sets.
Incidentally, we’ll also get an improved New Game+ feature, and the Xbox One version will also run at 60 frames-per-second. Here’s a list.
- License Reset Function: By talking to Clan Centurio’s leader Montblanc in Rabanastre, players can reset and change their party member’s jobs, allowing them to customize the jobs of their party as desired.
- Additional Gambit Sets: Gambits allow players to customize their party’s AI. Players can now create three unique sets, allowing players to switch between sets for different situations, such as map exploration or boss fights.
- Improved “New Game+”: Allows users to start the game with party members at level 90 and carry over some items like weapons, magic and gils obtained during previous playthroughs
- Specific to Xbox One X – Supports 60fps
You can check out a recording of the livestream below, alongside the full thing.
