Final Fantasy 9 gets PlayStation 4 re-release

UPDATE: Available to download right now.

UPDATE 10.20am: Final Fantasy 9 is now available to buy and download from the PlayStation Store in Europe.

The PS4 re-release costs £16.99, although PlayStation Plus members can get it for the lower price of £13.59 for another seven days.

ORIGINAL STORY 9.00am: Final Fantasy 9 is getting a PlayStation 4 re-release, Sony announced at today's PlayStation Tokyo Games Show press conference.

It's available to download today from the PlayStation Store - in Japan, at least.

Surprise! Actually, not so much. Word of the re-release leaked out earlier today ahead of the conference via a ratings board listing.

This version looks to be similar to edition of FF9 which was ported to PS4 last year.

Some fans consider FF9 to be the series' high point, which is indeed an opinion they are entitled to.

There's no word yet when we'll see it here in Europe, but we'll keep you posted.
