The games a joy to play in handheld mode and additional features make it even better. Those who bought the PS4 and PC versions released back in 2017 may be a bit disappointed about, but the remake was well-received by critics and gamers alike.
Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age performs well on the Nintendo Switch, offering a stable 30 FPS in portable mode. The graphics look quite good, even if some models are blurry. If you like to game while traveling beware: the game is demanding, and it will consume your battery at an accelerated rate.
Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age Comes To Nintendo Switch With New Features
The Switch and Xbox One version of the titles provide two new features which make life a lot easier for players. License board resets offer the option to change the class of the characters ( a feat which was impossible in previous entries), and Gambit sets allow players to create three distinct scripts for each character. The Gambit sets can be swapped at any time.
The second features have a huge impact since Gambits play an important role in the game. In a nutshell, Gambits allow players to set conditions which can be triggered and can trigger automatic actions in a given context. For example, you can task the healer to heal someone of the heath level of that character falls below a predefined threshold.
Crafty players will have the chance to create powerful Gambit combos, which can be very handy when you are tackling a difficult boss. The extra layer of flexibility is also welcome since you can adapt to a challenge on the fly and revert to your favorite setup without the need to change several settings.
Some players hope that Square Enix will bring these features to the Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age PS4 and PC versions of the game with the help of a patch. It remains to be seen if the company shares the same opinion.
