Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age, a remaster of 2006's Final Fantasy 12, will launch on PlayStation 4 on July 11.

Square Enix announced the launch at a 30th anniversary event for the Final Fantasy franchise today.

Per its name, the remaster will include the International Zodiac Job system that was part of the Japan-only update for the PlayStation 2 game. The job system allows a user to assign a role to a character, which provides them with unique skills and stat growth opportunities.

In a preview last summer, producer Hiroaki Kato noted that under the original character progression system in Final Fantasy 12, all the characters would "basically become supermen" by the end of the game. But the International Zodiac Job system provides greater variety and customization in a player's party.
