Final Fantasy XII Zodiac in English. This is Awesome.

Reviewed By: Burnt Lasagna on 01 Dec 2016

This is a fantastic conversion/translation! If you liked the official translation of Final Fantasy XII, you’re in luck. This patch uses the official American translation for 98% of the dialogue and provides a new translation for the 2% of extra menu/descriptive text for this version (NOTE: The English dub is also in this version. This is because the Zodiac edition uses them even in the unpatched game).

My only issue with the patch is that the menu font has been used for the entirety of the game. This makes dialogue text allot smaller and a tad harder to read on a CRT. There is the option of restoring the original dialogue English font (copy the file in “bin/font_big” into the bin folder before patching) however, this will cause some text to overflow off the screen. With the that being said, I found that disabling “deflickering” in options does improve readability.

All and all, this patch makes the PS2 Zodiac edition of Final Fantasy XII in English. This is awesome.
