Square Enix has rolled out a trailer teasing its fans waiting for the "Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age" launch in July.

According to PlayStation Lifestyle, "Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age" is a PlayStation 4 remaster of "Final Fantasy XII International Zodiac Job System," which was only launched in Japan way back in 2007. Recently, its game developer; Square Enix has rolled out a trailer that shows off the game's enhanced graphics. It also indicated a bit of the video game's story and characters.

It was noticed on the trailer that the "Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age" has a developed high-definition graphics compared to the original game. It also flaunts audio improvements such as support for both the game's English and Japanese voice tracks. The said video game also exhibits improved performance and quality of live enhancements including shorter load times and an auto-save feature.

For reference, Forbes has noted that "Final Fantasy XII" was originally launched way back in 2006 for PlayStation 2. It was originally directed by Yasumi Matsuno, of Vagrant Story fame, but he left the project midway because of some concerns over his health. Despite the situation, the final game was still fantastic. Also, an "International Zodiac Job System" version of the game was also unveiled a year later and it's this version that the "Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age" on PS4 is established upon.

The same news outlet also mentioned that Sony is yet to open up backward compatibility on the PlayStation 4 since the owners of this console still can't use the games on the old PlayStation One and PlayStation 2. However, PlayStation Now is trying to deliver some of these video games in a random style. But then, it still makes no sense why Sony won't offer its avid fans a physical based backward compatibility of its older video game consoles.

"Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age" is slated to become accessible for PlayStation 4 on July 11 in North America and Europe. On the other hand, the same video game will arrive in Japan on July 13.
