Square Enix has revealed that the PlayStation Network re-release of Final Fantasy IX will hit Japanese consoles on 20th May.

The Japanese release date was revealed via a tweet by Square Enix producer Shinji Hashimoto (helpfully translated by Andriasang). The tweet also included a brief video showing the game running on a PSP.

Outside of Japan, the US Playstation blog has mentioned that the game will be "coming soon" to the US PSN.

A European release date and price points for all regions have not been revealed. Square Enix has not responded to a request for comment.

It was only a few weeks ago that we first heard Square Enix was considering a downloadable re-release for the popular PlayStation RPG.
