Editors’ Notes

Originally released in 2000, Final Fantasy IX set a new standard for the series—and it’s still astoundingly impressive. It’s a perfect blend of beloved RPG elements from previous entries and modernized battle encounters. As you make your way through the story’s twists and turns, you’ll encounter unforgettable characters, frighteningly powerful enemies, and a wonderful fantasy world to explore.

Four stars because of some changes

There’s a lot of differences between this version and the original. They shortened and cut out a lot of battle animations. The encounter rate has been lowered a lot. You can run through entire areas without getting into a fight. You’re going to have to grand dragon grind to make up for it. The battle timing feels off too. The speed up option is cool for the chocograph quest tho’. I got a robe of lords quick! Overall I liked this version. Oh yeah the directional controls are a little off. And you can’t run as soon as the screen changes. This made me miss a lot of battles in the Hunt.

Excellent port of an excellent game!

I have not played FF9 in several years and I am very impressed with how well this iOS version performs. I played on an iPhone 7 and this game works surprisingly well on the mobile platform. The touch screen functionality is as good as you could hope for with the UI being slightly modified for the experience. The game didn’t crash a single time during my 48 hour play through so you can tell it was optimized very nicely. The game also has a handy auto save feature every time you enter a new room which is very convenient if you need to put your phone away on a whim. However I highly recommend to still do manual saves just in case you need them. What more is there to say? FF9 is such an amazing adventure and if you haven’t played it yet then go for it!
