Final Fantasy IX is the 9th title in the main Final Fantasy series release by Square Enix (at the time Square Soft) and the last game to debut on the original PlayStation console.

Final Fantasy IX shifts the game's art style back to the pre-PlayStation era with less realistic character designs and a hybrid medieval/steampunk look to the world. Featuring more intuitive exploration (thought balloons when finding hidden items) and an easier to use battle system, FFIX was the last Final Fantasy game released for the PlayStation 1.
