Square Enix has announced that the release date for the PlayStation Network version of Final Fantasy IX in Japan is May 20, 2010.

This comes following Square Enix producer Shinji Hashimoto’s update today where he said the publisher and Sony Computer Entertainment were discussing a release date. That sure was fast.

Square has released a video showing the game running on PSP alongside the announcement. Check that out at the link.

    I have no idea what reason can make people expect an ten year old game so much……..

      I’m not sure I understand what you’ve written there, but Final Fantasy IX, among many other PSone titles, is a classic. Replaying it is a custom, and experiencing it for the first time – even now – can make the player fall in love with the world it introduces.

    Absolutely. A Good game never ages (some of the best of all time are more than 10 years old), and with new FF fans being born every minuite, many people will be experiencing this game for the first time. Its a wonderful game tbh, and if anyone reading hasn’t played it – I urge you to pick it up!
