Final Fantasy IX is now out on iOS and Android

Have you been thirsting to relive the glory days of the Tantalus Theater Troupe, but don’t want to bust out your old PlayStation? Good news, because Square Enix has just released Final Fantasy IX on iOS and Android.

With little fanfare, not even garnering a press release, the game is available to download now for $16.99. A pretty hefty price, especially when compared to most mobile games. But this isn’t most mobile games, this is Final Fantasy.

It’s not just a straight port either. Included are higher resolution character models, cheat codes, a fast-forward button, and the ability to change your character’s’ stats on the fly.

It should be noted, if you own a PS3, PSP, or PS Vita, you can buy the game now on those systems for $9.99 as a PSOne classic. The original PSOne discs are going for about $15 used, so it may not be a terrible deal to download it digitally on PlayStation or mobile.

As for Windows users, it doesn’t seem that Square Enix will be porting the game to the Windows Store as of now. But the game is listed on Steam for an early 2016 release date, so PC users won’t be left in the dark much longer.
