    While it is just a revamp of an old FF, it's still kinda surprising that NA/EU sees a release before JP

    Me neither, but I have it on my shelf (and I don't have a ps4) so... I'll go with the original, sooner or later ^_^

    It's super cool that my favourite FF game is coming to PS4 and all. But I have a PS2 still that works fine. I wonder how many people will actually buy it.

    I am more eager for the pc version. I played it for a while and stuck in the king's tomb or something like that. the game was boring and felt like a MMO

    A remake that doesn't use RPG Maker VX for its assets.

    It's not just a revamp. It's the remastered edition of the enhanced version International Job System. The west never got this, and what makes this all the sweeter are the enhanced textures and likely bug fixes.

    It wasn't at all like an MMO besides the FFXI action animations and battle menu.

    I remember when I played Final Fantasy XII Internation Job System on my NA PS2.

    Except that never happened.

    That game never made it to the states and we were stuck with standard FF12.

    Final Fantasy XII is probably the most under rated Final Fantasy game in my opinion. I unfortunately didn't own it and the best version never came to North America so I think I'm going to buy this one. Although the amount of ports and re-makes of FF titles is getting old this will be a great addition to my PS4 library.

    To be honest I never liked the story or the main character on this game but I loved the job/zodiac system they added later and the gameplay was cool so I might end up replaying this and who knows maybe I'll end up liking the story this time around.

    Wish it was the original, I don't care for the zodiac changes.

    7/11? Does it come with a free Slurpee? Do the europes have to wait for November since 7/11 means something completely different there? :)

    It actually was like an MMO, since they were all the rage when Final Fantasy XII was released. It's the reason I stopped playing it, the first 4 hours I caught myself falling asleep to the story and the battle system was just blah.
