Recently Squaresoft Electronic Arts confirmed the expected when they announced that Final Fantasy IX, Squaresoft's latest installment of their acclaimed RPG series, is slated for a U.S. release of November 14th. Now that Square has made it official, gamers everywhere are no doubt on pins and needles waiting for Square's next epic quest.
Jun Iwasaki, the president of Squaresoft Electronic Arts, had this comment on the announcement, "Anticipation has been building for the next installment in the Final Fantasy series." Iwasaki continued, "Now fans of the series have only three weeks to wait before they enter the completely new world of Final Fantasy IX." The game is drawing praise from nearly every videogame authority you can find, and when the game is released it's sure to show gamers and fans the reason why.
In Japan, the title has already sold 2.8 million copies since it was released on July 7th. The Final Fantasy series is widely regarded as one of the greatest series of all time, and Squaresoft's plan to take the series back to its roots has turned Final Fantasy IX into one of the most promising games ever. Marrying modern technology with old style gameplay and storytelling, this title very well could turn into one of the last great classics on Sony's Playstation. RPG fan or not, you'd do well to watch for this one.
