The pre-order page for the Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age Limited Edition Steelbook is now live on Amazon for $49.99 (the same price as the Standard Edition). While we don't know quite yet what the steelbook actually looks like, there is an FFXII panel at 1:30 pm eastern time at PAX East where we might expect to see it revealed.
The listing suggests that the original soundtrack for the game won't be included as default as in Final Fantasy X's HD Remaster, but instead will be unlockable, and possibly DLC. The Amazon listing mentions the inclusion of "a digital code to unlock the original soundtrack background music option in-game". This woud be similar to how Japanese voices were available as dlc for World of Final Fantasy, but were included in limited editions of that game.
Some more details about the remaster from the listing:
- Includes the game, an exclusive steel book featuring artwork by renowned illustrator Akihiko Yoshida, and a digital code to unlock the original soundtrack background music option in-game.
- Enhanced gameplay features: Zodiac Job System - Improved leveling system that caters to the player's preference; Trial Mode - Take on monsters and enemies in up to 100 consecutive battles; Speed Mode
- Latest-generation HD graphical capabilities, including characters and movie scenes fully remastered in high definition
- True 7.1 surround sound, including high definition voicing and newly recorded background music utilizing the current generation of sound production
- Modern advancements including PlayStation4 trophy support and share functionalities, auto-save and shortened loading times.
