Final Fantasy IX Remake: Everything We Know So Far

Here's everything you need to know about the Final Fantasy IX Remake

Square Enix had massive success with the release of the Final Fantasy VII Remake, and now it appears that the Final Fantasy IX Remake isn’t far behind.

Final Fantasy IX saw a return to the classic art style of the FF series when it was initially released back on Playstation, and still has a huge amount of fans that list the title in their top games to this day.

Although no other Final Fantasy game has the size of the fanbase of Final Fantasy VII, a Remake for IX would certainly be a big hit with RPG players.
