Square Enix surprise releases Final Fantasy IX for iOS and Android

Final Fantasy XI

After announcing plans earlier this month to bring Final Fantasy IX, one of the series’ most revered titles, to mobile, Square Enix has stealthily dropped the game on iOS, Android, with a Steam release soon to follow.

This Final Fantasy IX re-release features high-resolution character models, touch controls and similar to the Final Fantasy VII mobile version, new settings that reduce or remove the number of random enemy encounters, as well as a fast-forward button. Character damage can also be turned up to 9,999 per attack.

Similar to most Square Enix mobile releases, Final Fantasy IX is expensive, coming in at $23.99 CAD for iOS and $23.99 on Android.
