When the Queen of Alexandria begins terrorising neighbouring kingdoms with highly advanced magical weapons, a skilful young thief named Zidane forms a group made up of bandits, knights and magicians in an attempt to stop her. Little do they realise that the Queen’s warmongering actions are merely a cover for a far more sinister plot. For the sake of mankind, Zidane and his company must put an end to the Queen’s reign before she and the evil forces that accompany her can carry out the deadly plan.Originally released in 2000, FINAL FANTASY IX makes a long-awaited return this week, via digital download on the PlayStation®Store.
