Final Fantasy IX hits PSN Store this Tuesday

Ami Blaire's Avatar + Posted by Ami Blaire on Jun 10, 2010 // Vice President of Marketing, Square Enix

We’d like to thank everyone who has patiently waited for the revival of one of the most anticipated classics in the Final Fantasy series, Final Fantasy IX.

Returning to the elements of what makes true role-playing games appealing — characters, grand story, engaging battles and an impressive presentation — we’re proud to offer PS3 and PSP owners a chance to relive what RPG fans have long considered a nostalgic masterpiece.

The wait is almost over and we’re proud to announce that Final Fantasy IX is finally here, again!

Any idea when some of S-E’s other PSN releases will make a stateside appearance? I have a PSN card with Einhander written all over it, but I can’t give them money until they let me.

Awesome! Quick question: I was playing my disc copy of FF8 the other day (I have the 60GB PS3) until I got to the 3rd disc and realized I had lost it. If I get FF8 from the PS store can I continue from where I left off or would I have to start all over?

Thanks for the heads up. Looking forward to it.

On a side note, you might want to change the publish time of this article to make it appear after Modnation Racers PSP, since it was auto-published later.

Well most of us knew it would be released on the day of E3, not really surprised still good news though

I’ve been wondering when. Thanks!

+ GooberForHire on June 10th, 2010 at 7:25 pm said:

Never played FFIX, but since it has come out in like every other place but NA, and people have been complaining, I figure it’s worth a purchase.

+ Nuurgle on June 10th, 2010 at 7:27 pm said:

One of the few FF games that I actually played non-stop to completion. Looking forward to doing it all over again.


16

+ DiscoJer on June 10th, 2010 at 7:28 pm said:

So any reason why it was delayed so long in NA? Or why S-E has so few of its titles (PSP or PS1) up on PSN?

From what I’ve read, it seems like Sony does all the work, so keeping off the store seems curious.

Took you guys long enough.

Can’t wait. One of the greatest RPGs of all time and the game that marked the end of an era. Day one from me.

Good another awesome PS1 game on PSN. I might get it down the road.

Oh and what the status of Vagrant Story coming to PSN NA?

+ krae_man on June 10th, 2010 at 7:42 pm said:

So it was delayed weeks needlessly so it could be included in the E3 press confrence?

*shakes head*

    I can assure you that this was not the case (or we’d have announced it in the press conference, not today).

Isn’t it awful?

Hurray :D had it on disc for nearly 10 years, but the 1st one has been broken for half that time. hurray!

+ DNAgent on June 10th, 2010 at 8:00 pm said:

It’s better to just buy the disc as it will be cheaper. It’s not like the game is hard to find and on top of that all PS3s are backwards compatible with PS1 games. This digital download garbage is just yet another ripoff.

@Gaucho21 hey it doesnt matter what ps3 u got they all play ps1 games also yes if u started with disk form and then got the game off the psn its the same and vice versa so just get the game and start up the game normally

Very nice of you to give us FFIX, now how about Vagrant Storu which EU already has and Xenogears from JP? Kthx.

I have 9.99 in my account for FFIX though thanks! :)

Hopefully now everyone will stop complaining about it on store update days! I would love to see CTR come to NA, any chance?

Would really love the following PS One Classics released:
