Right at the end of 2015, games publisher Square Enix announced that it would be bringing one of its most beloved Final Fantasy games, Final Fantasy IX, to mobile (and PC) in 2016. The trailer they showed then was mostly cinematic and didn’t really give us an idea of what to expect, but we now have a better idea after Square Enix showed the first few minutes of Final Fantasy IX Mobile being played on its livestream. Check out the livestream below, though note the whole video is in Japanese – skip to 5:50 to see the actual game in action, unless you’re fluent in Japanese, of course.

What you will notice is that the graphics have been greatly improved compared to the original PSOne version, and I don’t think anyone will be complaining about that. If both the PC and mobile versions of the game look like it does in the video, I think we’ll all be very happy gamers (after we get over the $15+ cost of the game). We still have no word on when to expect Final Fantasy IX to drop on mobile, and we should also be wary that it will take some time for the game to be translated into English – the moral of the story is get comfortable, because we could be in for a bit of a wait.
