Square Enix began streaming two videos for the Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age PlayStation 4 game on Thursday and Friday. The first video is in English, and outlines the game's license board system, which allows players to customize each character's abilities, and the Gambit System, which allows players to automate their characters' behaviors in real-time combat.

The second "Understand FFXII: TZA in 120 Seconds" video features Vaan and Penelo narrating the video and outlining the history of Ivalice, and the game's story and characters. Square Enix previously streamed a similar video explaining the game's features.

The game will ship in North America and Europe on July 11 and in Japan and Asia on July 13. The game will ship with a Collector's and Limited Edition.

The Collector's Edition will cost US$199.99, and is only available through Square Enix's online store. The edition will contain a set of busts featuring the Judge Magisters, the game's soundtrack, a steelbook with Collector's Edition-exclusive art, six art cards featuring the game's characters, and a digital code for the original soundtrack to unlock in the game.

The Limited Edition will cost US$49.99. The edition will have a steelbook with art by Akihiko Yoshida, and a digital code for the original soundtrack to unlock in the game.

The standard edition of the game will feature a reversible cover. Those who pre-order the digital version of the game will get a PlayStation 4 menu theme, and four music tracks by Hitoshi Sakimoto.

Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age is the high-definition PlayStation 4 remaster of the international version of Final Fantasy XII. The game will feature HD upgrades for the backgrounds, character models, and font, as well as movie scenes. The game will also feature both English and Japanese audio tracks, will have 7.1ch surround sound, and will feature the original soundtrack and a re-recorded soundtrack. Players can switch between the two soundtracks in the game's settings. Additionally, the new game will shorten loading times, add an auto-save function, and improve the high-speed mode.

The Final Fantasy XII International Zodiac Job System game used a new job system that featured 12 License Boards (instead of one in the original game) representing 12 different jobs. The game also featured a new trial mode, and a new game plus feature, among other upgrades and changes.

Square Enix released Final Fantasy XII for the PlayStation 2 in 2006 in Japan and North America, and in 2007 in Europe. The Final Fantasy XII International Zodiac Job System version of the game shipped in Japan only in 2007.
