Final Fantasy fans rejoice for the ninth entry in this long-running series is now out on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
Revealed during yesterday’s Nintendo Direct, Final Fantasy 9 is a slightly remastered version of the 2000 PlayStation game.
With improved visuals, this is the same exact version that PS4, PC and mobile gamers have enjoyed for months. Still, it’s a great game and it’s also the first time it has been available on an Xbox and Nintendo console.
Reportedly, the port is not brilliant. According to Twitter user Alex Donaldson, this incarnation of the game features horrendous music bugs that cause the game’s soundtrack to cut out.
Shame to report that FF9 on Switch & Xbox features all the same problems as on PC and mobile – including the music bug that means you can't hear large amounts of the game's excellent, all-timer soundtrack in full. They've had months to fix this. Mess

Final Fantasy 9 isn’t the only game in the series making its way to these two consoles. Announced alongside Final Fantasy 9 was the news that the seventh entry in the series would also be coming. After all, it’ll be years until that remake releases.
Releasing on March 26th, Final Fantasy 7 will be an enhanced version of the original game. Hopefully, this won’t be as buggy as the new port of 9 but only time will tell.
