FFIX released for the Switch yesterday, officially kickstarting the slew of PSX/PS2-era Final Fantasy games that Nintendo fans never got! So now's as good as time as any to dive into this title, as it's stylistically similar to the SNES games and even has cleaned-up visuals. Let's discuss our progress here.
The sad thing is that the port of 7 will probably have even fewer features added. Square has the source code for the PS1 version of 9 still so they're able to do a fair bit with the game. They straight up don't have the source code for 8 at all and they've been working off of the Windows 95 version of 7.
I'm so happy I haven't played this since release. I remember always regarding it as my favorite Final Fantasy game despite not really remembering it much, and it's very much scratching an itch for me I didn't know needed scratching. What I'm saying is this game has found my G spot, and I think it's very sexy.
