Final Fantasy IX is a 2000 role-playing video game developed and
published by Squaresoft for the PlayStation video game console. It is
the ninth game in the main Final Fantasy series. Players follow the
bandit Zidane Tribal, who kidnaps Princess Garnet Til Alexandros XVII
of Alexandria as part of a gambit by the neighboring nation of Lindblum.
The game was developed alongside Final Fantasy VIII. Envisioned by
developers as a retrospective for the series, it departed from the
futuristic settings of Final Fantasy VI, Final Fantasy VII, and Final
Fantasy VIII by returning to the medieval style of the earlier
installments. Final Fantasy IX was released to critical acclaim and is
often considered one of the greatest video games of all time. Final
Fantasy IX was commercially successful, selling more than 5.5 million
copies on PlayStation by March 2016. Ports featuring minor gameplay and
graphical enhancements were released for various other platforms in the
late 2010s. (This article is part of a featured topic: Final Fantasy
