With all the hype surrounding Final Fantasy VII Remake (by the way when is it coming out), many fans have asked “what about FFVI, FFVIII and FFIX?” Well today we got an answer to one-third of that question. Final Fantasy IX (a personal favorite) makes its way to the PlayStation 4. There was a time when you had to have a PlayStation to play Final Fantasy at launch and now a classic makes its way back home.

Fans who purchase from the PlayStation®Store will also receive an original PlayStation®4 custom theme designed by Toshiyuki Itahana and eight PlayStation™Network avatars.
