The original game has been widely praised but I cannot help but feel that it has always been a mixed feeling every time it comes to fanbase reception when FF12 is brought up on message boards and such. I find it really interesting to see how the remaster is going to be received 11 years later
Now, it feels JRPGs are more on board with what FF12 offered. Apparently even Xenoblade creator Tetsuya Takahashi claimed the game was inspired by FF12’s new direction, which is considered as maybe the best JRPG of the previous generation. Maybe today is the perfect time to re-release this game to the world, especially considering that more and more people were able to be acquainted with Matsuno’s work. What do you think?
Here’s a list of the changes for the remaster for those interested.
