Yesterday was Square/Enix's annual media party, and there were a couple of interesting announcements. Game|Life's Chris Kohler was there, and reports on the most interesting announcement: a Final Fantasy XII re-envisioning
entitled International: Zodiac Job System
. The title will feature the same story, a further-refined combat system, and a series of 12 separate license boards. Each board corresponds to a traditional FF 'job', like Monk or Red Mage; at the moment there is no plan to release it in the states. Other announcements include word that Star Ocean will get the remake treatment
, with the first two games coming to the PSP sometime in the future. They are also working on a next-gen Star Ocean 4
; no details about that. Crystal Chronicles for the DS drops in August
in Japan, no US release date was given. Finally, screenshots and videos of The Last Remnant
capped off the event; we talked about the game
earlier this week when it was announced.
