Square Enix Launches Final Fantasy IX on Android
Whoa, another great news for RPG fans!
Square Enix just recently released Final Fantasy IX or FFIX on Android. FFIX is the first Playstation-Era Final Fantasy to hit Android.
FFIX is now available on the Play Store for $17. For those that have played the original but may not still own it, this is a small price to pay for a bit of nostalgia. Of course, this is a hard pill to swallow if you own a PS Vita and can obtain a digital copy of the game at a much lower cost.
FFIX was the last entry in the main series that was released on the original Playstation. The story follows Zidane, a scoundrel type whose theater troupe-slash-gang of thieves kidnaps the local princess, much to her surprise and delight. Eventually the winding story gets caught in the middle of a fantasy war. You could see the trailer below. The Android port appears to preserve the original gameplay, but adds some "game boosters" to allow players to progress through the enormous story more quickly. There's also an auto-save feature, and some of the pre-rendered video and character models have been redone to take advantage of high-resolution screens.
Having the game available on an Android smartphone is arguably the most portable way to play it, thus increasing its appeal for the fans. But I think I prefer more to replay the game on my PS Vita than on an Android phone. How about you?
