Final Fantasy 9 first debuted in 2000 for the original Playstation. It was then re-released for the PS3, PSP and PS Vita via The Playstation Network in 2010.

It’s a fantastic RPG, featuring some of the franchise’s’ best characters, storytelling and visual design.

The game is also coming to PC in 2016, but a release date beyond Steam’s “early 2016” window is yet to be confirmed.
