Fuck Shit Stack.



Did ff12 do good enough to warrant an hd release.
I don't remember people speaking to fondly of it.
I didn't really like it much myself.

I had a conversation a few weeks back with my brother about how much this will never happen.

I'd've said the same about FFVIIR.  And The Last Guardian.  (And Shenmue 3 if I knew anything about Shenmue.)

So now I'm not so sure!  The optimism is wiggling back in.  We got FFXHD, so it's not a HUGE jump to assume they can upgrade the PS2-gen graphics to PS3+ HD.

Yeah - I would think it would happen at some point.

Would I buy it?  Not sure.  Wasn't a huge fan of FFXII (it's on my bottom tier as far as FF games fo), but still enjoyed it overall.  And I only played through once.  So at some point for $20?  Maybe.

Count me in. I'm only spending a few hours max on attempting to obtain a Danjuro, though (sorry "all equipment" trophy).

I think there are older games that looked worse than ff12 that need the upgrade first...like third twin said...FF9

I think there has been a lot of love that grown for the game since then. I remember Gametrailers was pretty harsh on FFXII but 9 years later it's placed as the 4th best Final Fantasy game ahead of FFVII and FFX.

I also thiink that FFXII was probably 3 years ahead of its time and proobably didn't get the recognition it deserved. In 2006 open world games (especially in RPG's) weren't really that big in consoles. Fast forward to now and you don't see many games that ins't flaunting how "open world" their games are, which includes Square-Enix with FFXV and Lightning Returns. I guess the best example is Xenoblade Chronicles and it shows how much gamers want an open world experience even from JRPG's,

To be fair I recall somone in Neogaf saying the recent growing appreciation of FFXII was a result at how bad FFXII was retrofiting how people felt about FFXII.

As for warranting an HD Release. Let's put things to perspective.
- FFXIII got two sequels.
- FFIV whose NA sales was considered a dissapointmnet got like a million re-releases, remakes, and remaster.

So yes FFXII warrants an HD Re-release.

I liked the game enough that I would play it either way, but it would be pretty silly not to release the IZJS version.

The original FFXII release was pretty damn broken. IZJS is much more playable.

I feel like this is the only FF game right now that hasn't been re-released in some form or another, so it feels like it's only a matter of time. :|

As far as I can tell, it literally is the only one that hasn't been re-released.  Even VIII and IX are on the PSN (and Steam I think?) in their original form, but XII remains only available as a hard copy on PS2*.


(*If I'm wrong please correct me.)

So yes FFXII warrants an HD Re-release.

I agree it warrants an HD re-release, and I agree with the above.

I'll throw one other thing into the mix on this. I may be off base on this, but I feel like FFXII released before we got a slew of Western RPGs on consoles (Fallout, Mass Effect, Witcher, etc) and other open world games (I know FFXII isn't open world, but it FEELS like an open world game, at least to me). I had never played a Western RPG on a console prior to the last gen. I know that they have been around forever on PC, but I feel like on consoles they just weren't really a big deal until this past gen. That said, I feel like FFXII has a lot of the best parts of a WRPG in it, despite being a JRPG. Going back to play FFXII after spending so much time playing WRPGs the past 5-6 years has really made me appreciate FFXII ALOT more in the small snippets I've played.

I really want to give it a fair play through from beginning to end again post-exposure to WRPGs as I think my feelings on the game would be vastly different. Even on partial play throughs or going back to visit old areas, my opinion on it has increased tremendously from when I first played it. Fix the camera and it will be pure gold.
