Final Fantasy IX confirmed for PSN in Japan
Square Enix's Japan arm announces Zidane, Garnet, Vivi, and co. will see rerelease through Sony's online store in island nation.
Final Fantasy XIII may have sold 1 million units within five days of its March 9 release in North America, but that figure represents just a drop in the bucket when it comes to total franchise sales, which stand at nearly 100 million. Square Enix has been capitalizing on the popularity of some of the more beloved installments, rereleasing Final Fantasy VII and VIII through Sony America's PlayStation Network in June and December, respectively.
Now, Square Enix plans to add Final Fantasy IX to that list, as well--in Japan, at least. As spotted by Japanese gaming blog Andria Sang, the publisher has announced through its Twitter feed that Final Fantasy IX will see release through the Japanese PSN. Square Enix did not provide a release date or pricing information, nor did it say whether Final Fantasy IX will be available in regions outside of Japan.
Originally released in 2000, Final Fantasy IX documents the travails of the plucky youth Zidane, who hatches a plan to make off with Princess Garnet. The game also introduces fan-favorite black mage Vivi. For more information, check out GameSpot's review of the original.
