[UPDATE: Game Released] Square Enix will be bringing Final Fantasy IX to mobile devices soon

Over the holiday season Square Enix sneakily released a brand new video on their own Japanese YouTube channel for Final Fantasy IX. Normally this would not be an enormous problem aside from the fact that this trailer is really for that mobile and PC version of Final Fantasy IX. You heard right, Zidane and friends is going to be arriving onto smartphones soon.

UPDATE: Tuesday, February 9th – 8:27 PM, PST: Fans which have been eagerly awaiting the release of Final Fantasy IX, your wait is over. The game is now open to download in the Google Play Store. The sport is $16.99 to download. There are no in-app purchases in the game. However, before everyone gets too excited, it seems that currently, the game isn’t suitable for the Nvidia Shield Tablet. This might change in the near future, but currently you won’t have the ability to listen to it. If anyone else’s Shield is showing compatibility, please let us know in the comments below. The link to download the game are available after this short article.

Square Enix has also published a micro-site confirming that Final Fantasy IX is going to be landing on Android and iOS soon. Although this micro-site is on the Japan Square Enix site, usually indicating a Japan-only release, it should be no surprise if/when this arrives in the Western market too.

For people unfamiliar with this game, Final Fantasy IX follows the story of a war between nations. You’ll be following a young thief named Zidane Tribal, who joins with others to defeat Queen Brahne of Alexandria, the main one responsible for starting the war. The storyline changes, however, when the characters understand that Brahne is working with an even more threatening person called Kuja.

original version

It ought to be a secure bet that while Square Enix ports over the controls from the console version to cellular devices, the game’s ATB system should remain in tact. Well hopefully that is the case. There will be newer and more effective features making a look and feel within this version of the sport, such as an auto-save feature, and also the ability to speed everything up such as the possible bypassing of cutscenes. The graphics will also be upgraded too.

If you are a fan of Final Fantasy, then this is some pretty very good news. Really the only questions now are when and where will this game arrive. We can not check this out particular release being Japan-only, although we do reckon that it will likely be released there first. In terms of when, all we know right now is ‘soon’.
