Last December, Square Enix announced that one of the most underrated installments in the numbered Final Fantasy series, Final Fantasy IX, will be making its way to the PC and smartphones. The developer did not provide a concrete release date, but surprised everyone this week by going ahead with an iOS and Android release.
The new mobile ports of Final Fantasy IX, while not a full HD remake, features a slew of modern features such as high-resolution character models, the ability to turn off random encounters, touch controls, and a fast forward capability. It can be a little bit pricey for a mobile game, though, coming in at a hefty $16.99
There’s still no word on the Steam release, but it’s listed as coming out in 2016 so we’re not likely to wait for long.
