    If you have never played this one, give it a try! It's personally a great one in the series. My personal 1 infact.

    Don't let the art style dissuade you.

    It has multiple classes to choose for your team. (Monk, Dragon Knight, Thief (Main), 2 Summoners with different summons, Blue Mage, Black Mage and Warrior (Pst: The warrior and black mage have a combo together!))

    It has the card game some people liked with a bit of a twist from FF8.

    It has the best chocobo side story and minigame/treasure hunting from all final fantasies. (No chocobo races tough :/)

    And there's more! I beat it twice and I might buy it for a 3rd time if the HD is decent enough.

    the last great final fantasy ever made. All others that followed after that were a huge dissapointment.

    When they say a game is being released for both mobile and the PC you are guaranteed a horrible UI on the PC.  Exactly why VI tanked big time.  Nothing worse than a developer that keeps repeating the same mistake over and over again.  So I see nothing positive in this announcement.

    Worryingly, as much as i love the Final Fantasy franchise of games, there have been some dodgy ports to PC, i think the last one was type 0, which i ended up getting a steam refund for, so glad thats a thing tbh. So as much as i'd like to get FF IX, i think i will wait to see what others say this time, save going through the rigamarole of a steam refund again. Having said that, i will be keeping my fingers crossed that its a good port.

    Good thing that FF IX is old enough to have other options available to play it on your favorite platform. Somehow, i didn't get really into it though. Maybe i have to try again, but there are so many games to play anyway...(not MMOs, but games in general).

    I'll wait to the day's end when the moon is high
    And then I'll rise with the tide with a lust for life, I'll
    Amass an army, and we'll harness a horde
    And then we'll limp across the land until we stand at the shore

    12 was good in my opinion, it was like Final Fantasy tactics style.  And I hope you are not including 11 and 14.

    The game that made me a jrpg fan and ofc its my favorite one from the series.Sorry FFX.

    YAY!

    I cut my teeth on FF7, but after that FF9 has a special place in my heart. I am going to be so fucking all over this.

    I wonder if I still have my old strategy guide. Hell...I even bought the art book for FF9!

    these seems to be a focus with Square Enix to pump out Quick FF games on every system known to man and have made sooooooooooo many under the brand FF that it has been diluted beyond all recognition. I think it started with ff10x-2.

    It's an indirect hype tactic for their Final Fantasy 15 game and nostalgic/new fans to the series.

    For a second I read it as "FFXI" and got excited that there was finally more news regarding the tablet version -- and that it was going to the PC as well.  In essence, they announced a long time ago that they were making a single player version of FFXI for IOS, but have been keeping quiet since.

    Oh well!  Still good news to see another FF game going to steam.  Hopefully they get to FFXII as well.

    Probably my favorite and the most underrated Final Fantasy in the series so far.

    XII disproves your statement, with ease.

    Hell No!!! Many FF fans including me LOVE FFX and consider that the best. And FFXI I forget this one the best game ever made for me not just FF related.

    Eh FFIX is one of my favorites, however FFX was a great game and one of their best. 

    FFIX is very underrated though, I think the Bahamut vs Alexander cinematics are some of the best they've ever done. I think Kuja and Vivi were amazing characters. I thought Garnet and Eiko were good as well, however I just found it difficult to accept Zidane, he annoyed me.

    I bet a PS emulator will do the same job. In the PC they will probably have people play with the keyboard and no mouse support, which would be a real bummer.

    Sweet! Though I'll pass because I have the PS1 discs and it plays well on my PS3...

    it's at least another stepping stone in their mobile ascendence. Square's been slowly creeping up on doing mobile right for about 4 years now...rather have them take ten years to truly get there to a great lineup, than continually push unintuitive garbage recycled again and again ten times over like all these mobile publishers. Especially with what they are planning with XI, chibi and non, and of course seven. Right direction at least, so far...
