Final Fantasy IX Lands Release Date For US Network
It won't be long before every fantastic Final Fantasy experience from the original PlayStation is available to download on the PlayStation Network.
We knew Final Fantasy IX was in the works for the North American PSN - or rather, we assumed - and now it has been confirmed via Andriasang that Square-Enix is ready to bring Zidane and Garnet's epic quest to the US Network. It wasn't long ago that Square-Enix boss Shinji Hashimoto said the PSN conversion was nearly complete and now, we know it'll be up and ready to download on May 20. We don't yet have a price but you should probably expect the same price tag given to FFVII and FFVIII, which is $14.99. They launched at that price but they're now down to $9.99 each. Now, to play such amazing RPGs for that price is an absolute steal; I don't care if they're old-fashioned and out-of-date. And you know, because you can download it for play on either the PS3 or PSP, and the original games are playable on either the first PlayStation or the PS2, there's absolutely no excuse to pass one some of the finest role-playing gems ever. You've got every opportunity to nab 'em all and it won't cost you much; in fact, you can get FFVII, VIII, and IX for only $35, which is less than buying one of those games when it first released ($39.99 plus tax).
So anyway, if you've been waiting for FFIX to make it to the US PSN, you won't have to wait much longer.
