Squenix talks FFXII conversion

Up to the standards of KH2.

Hot on the heels of news that Final Fantasy XII is due out on 23rd February, Square Enix has confirmed that the PAL conversion will be up to recent standards.

"The 50Hz [PAL] version is fully optimised and has no borders and runs at 60Hz [NTSC] speed," a UK spokesperson told Eurogamer this afternoon. It will also run in widescreen, although there's no progressive-scan option.

That would put it in line with the recent releases of Kingdom Hearts II and Dirge of Cerberus, also on PlayStation 2.

PAL conversions of Square Enix games (and not just them, either) have been a bit of a sore spot for a lot of Eurogamers in recent years, so it's nice to see Squenix getting it right as we, er, draw to the end of the last generation where it's likely to matter.

For more on all things Final Fantasy XII (although mainly what's in it, and whether it's any good), check in with our gamepage - home to Japanese and US reviews, an interview with Akitoshi Kawazu and even some videos.
