imageFinal Fantasy IX’s test play passed, which means its almost ready for PlayStation Network.


The next and final step is for Square Enix and Sony Computer Entertainment to set a release date, which Shinji Hashimoto just tweeted about. Let’s see how long it takes for a completed Game Archives title to appear on PSN.


Place your bets and grab a stop watch, everyone!


Update: That must have been the fastest meeting ever. Another tweet from Hashimoto says the release date for Final Fantasy IX is May 20. Here’s another demo of the game running on a PSP.

    Ooh, sof–

    As much as I hate to admit it because FFIX is severely lacking in the overall modernized appeal that FFVII and VIII had (despite the latter being an arguably horrible game that I will love to the ends of the earth regardless), I think this might be my favorite FF. I’ve been encouraging my friends to get it when it comes out on PSN because I only have one copy of the game to pass around.

    Do want.

  • kupomogli

    So how many of you that are getting this already own a copy of the game? Nearly every game I want on the PSN, I already own, so I can pull those games out and still play them on my PSP(it’d be different if I didn’t already own them.)

    But yeah. Already own it. Not picking it up. Like every RPG and most other games that’s on the PSN.

      I have it, but the PAL version is sloooooow. And the italian translation is really bad.

      Also, clean PSP here. Not that I want to play it on PSP, but if I wanted to, that would be my only chance. Maybe I should start thinking about doing something about it…

      I have the original game, I’m going to rebuy it again. I don’t know why I keep rebuying games I already own.

    It was a great game and I certainly wouldn’t mind getting the digital copy again to play on PS3/PSP despite owning the discs. It’d have been nice if they sell it for 1,000 instead of 1,500 yen.. $9.99 once it hits the US is more reasonable.. I think I might enjoy this more than VII & VIII replaying this now, the chars are so cute :)

  • holyPaladin

    Oh if i have time, I will play it again..

  • rinshu

    Its funny its taking Square so long to “Tweak” FFIX for the the PSP when the PSX for PSP version has been running perfectly on CFW for over 3 years ^^

  • malek86

    May 20? Well, hopefully it won’t be too long before the american release.
