• Final Fantasy IX comes to PS4 with enhancements and an exclusive theme


    The Tantalus troupe arrives once again with today's announcement during Sony's Tokyo Game Show 2017 press conference that Final Fantasy IX will be available on PS4. This version of the game will come with the enhancements made to its previous mobile and Steam releases.



    As such, the PS4 version of the game will also include the handy speed boosts and the ability to toggle random enemy encounters on or off. Expect trophy support to be included, as well as a custom theme designed by the game's character designer, Toshiyuki Itahana.

    When can we expect to see Zidane and crew on PS4? Today! Check your region's PS Store today and it should be listed.

      FFIX is one of my favourite FF games and it would be tempting to play it again (and get trophies this time)...

      However, I still possess my original copy of the game and I don't know if I could bring myself to pay for another copy for minor adjustments like that!

      I am very tempted by the theme though...

      The speeding up is well worth the repurchase alone. It's possibly my favourite game but even I can admit the battle system can be a wee bit slow.

      I'll be getting back into this game again soon enough. Not quite yet since I have Dragon Quest 7 on the go right now and that's huge so...soon lol.

      P.S. That theme is stunning. I love the chosen song. I love the artwork. I love the mini Vivis. I love the pointer movement...sound. I love the avatars .

      I'm excited to play it without random encounters. The older games, including IX, are far too easy. I played through the PS4 version of VII with no random encounters earlier this year, and it was the first time since I was nine years old that the game actually gave me a challenge; it was the perfect amount of challenge actually.

      Well hot damn that actually sounds like a huge improvement over the original. Might pick it up now.

      Awwww, I really want to play IX!;3; I could try it in my friends' PSX (it was fun to see this game has so many CDs xD) and played it for about 1-2 hours but it was overwhelming! So charming and the story was awesome!!! I really need to play it, I just feel the urge much more after watching this trailer. ;3;

      The only thing I don't understand is why PS4 has trophies but Vita has NONE. But I mean in generally, when they make a PS4 version, it has trophies, themes and so on, but the same game in Vita version has literally nothing. My poor Vita is so ignored... But finally I have a PS4 so I guess it won't hurt the buy the PS4 version then. The Vita version would be better (because I rarely go home where my PS4 is and therefore I use my portable consoles more), but whatever. I MUST buy IX. X.X
