Final Fantasy IX Is Now on Steam

Yesterday there were implications that the highly anticipated Steam release of Final Fantasy IX would be coming today and now that implication is a reality. Final Fantasy IX released this morning with a price of $20.99, but with a 20% off sale going until April 20, it is currently $16.79.

This port was first announced back in January alongside an iOS/Android port that dropped in February. Following Final Fantasy VII and VII, Final Fantasy IX returned the series to its medieval fantasy roots and opted a vastly different art style from the two that created mixed reactions for some fans, but over the years the game has developed quite the following. It was released back in November of 2000 for North America and it was my introduction to the series in that year, granting a place among my favorites.

With seven new modes such as a speed increase I have plans to purchase this today, will you as well? Let us know in the comments below.
