Final Fantasy IX 2016 Promo

Square Enix launched a teaser site on New Year’s Eve revealing that their classic PlayStation JRPG Final Fantasy IX will be releasing on iOS and Android devices as well as PC via Steam in the coming year. The teaser site includes a quick rundown of the story and the main characters, as well as a trailer for the upcoming release. The trailer can be found below:

The trailer shows off the FMV from the original game, upscaled to HD and a 16:9 aspect ratio. It also shows off the smoother, more modern-looking graphics with anti-aliasing, as well as the updated battle HUD. The re-release will also have new sprites for Tetra Master cards, a new menu design, achievement support and a speed-boost function. There’s no word so far on if any changes have been made to the flow of combat, which was one of my only problems with the original version of the game.

The teaser site also includes system requirements for the iOS and Android versions, stating that it will run on iOS 7.0 and Android 4.1 or later. This updated version of Final Fantasy IX will release sometime in 2016.

    Will this game be region locked like the other Final Fantasy games excluding VII, VIII, XIII 1-3?

  • Great! It is cool to begin 2016 with such a news.

    I believed that FFIX source code had been lost and that Square Enix was not able to release this game anymore. Looks like it is wrong.
