Final Fantasy IX on PC Comes with No Encounter Modes

By   /   Jan 6, 2016

A port of Final Fantasy IX is heading to the PC this year. With some new features, there appears to be one added option that may be very welcome to some fans of the game.

Looking at the Steam page for the game the additional features for the game are listed as:

Additional Features:

  • Achievements
  • Seven game boosters including high speed and no encounter modes.
  • Autosave
  • High-definition movies and character models.

What will interest players will be the “no encounters modes” which may make some fans happy. As they will be aware the encounters on Final Fantasy IX were known to be particularly annoying because of the frequency in which they occurred. Adding an ability to stop this from happening should allow people to get back to playing the game.

As expected with a port of an old game the minimum specifications are fairly low:


OS: Vista /7/8/8.1/10
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz or higher
Memory: 2 GB RAM
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 8600GTS or ATI Radeon HD4650 or higher
DirectX: Version 11
Storage: 20 GB available space
Sound Card: DirectSound compatible sound card(DirectX®9.0c or later)

The recommended specifications do raise the memory usage up to 4, and asks for a Core i5 but again, this isn’t too high a spec for a PC game. This should mean that fans of the game should have no problem getting it to run. If it lives up to their memories of when they played it in the past though, that will be another matter.
