Video game developer, Square Enix, had announced late last year that a re-releases of Final Fantasy IX would be coming to iOS, Android and PC. At that time, they had not made any commitment to the actual release date of the game to its fans. However, today, the game went live on the listings in the App Store for iOS devices.

Apparently, the company has given a special discount for the game, owing to fresh release, though, while it is currently listed at $16.99, it appears as though it will be 20% off from February 10th to February 21st.

At present, we are unable to comment on the $17 dollar price tag being after or before discount pricing for the game, however, owing to the past history of Square Enix and their tendency to release the game at premium prices, we assume that the price does reflect the discount. Nevertheless, we will surely confirm this fact later on.

Here is a brief overview of the gameplay feature and the storyline.

Zidane and the Tantalus Theater Troupe have kidnapped Princess Garnet, the heir of Alexandria. To their surprise, however, the princess herself yearned to escape the castle. Through a series of unusual circumstances, she and her personal guard, Steiner, fall in with Zidane and set out on an incredible journey. Meeting unforgettable characters like Vivi and Quina along the way, they learn about themselves, the secrets of the Crystal, and a malevolent force that threatens to destroy their world.
