Square Electronic Arts has released Final Fantasy IX for the North American PlayStation. The game is now available at retailers nationwide. In the game players control Zidane in his quest to stop the evil Queen Brahne from terrorizing the town of Alexandria and its neighboring kingdoms. To assist players in this journey, a complete Final Fantasy IX guide is available on Square's PlayOnline web site starting today.
"When Final Fantasy IX hit store shelves in Japan this July it had pre-sold one million units in a record-breaking seventeen days. Since then it has sold 2.8 million units to date," said Jun Iwasaki, president of Square Electronic Arts. "We think this version will find similar success in the US, while simultaneously extending the life of the original PlayStation game console."
