It’s as Fun as Final Fantasy X’s Lightning Dodge Quest
One of the highlights from the Tokyo Game Show 2017 PlayStation stream was the official confirmation that Final Fantasy IX is available for PS4 now worldwide with all of the updated perks that came with the 2016 PC version which includes a handy random encounter stopper, speed boosters, and other little things like taking your characters to max level for a breezy playthrough. It’s a day of celebration for Final Fantasy fans, but its Trophy list, unfortunately, features a pretty stupid Gold trophy that will give series players flashbacks of messing up on the 170th lightning dodge in Final Fantasy X to upgrade Lulu’s ultimate weapon.
The trophy in question is, of course, Hail to the King, where players have to jump rope 1000 times without tripping and obtain King of Jump Rope. In the game, you do have to jump rope 1000 times to get a Key Item, but I think this feat could have shed a digit in transition. Ozma be damned, this is will no doubt be Zidane and Co.’s hardest quest yet. While I’m not a Trophy hunter myself, I can understand the frustration as this will all but prevent players from hitting the coveted Platinium status with this port.
Final Fantasy IX is out now for PS4 with a decent 20% price cut until September 26th. Plus, you can get a pretty sweet Final Fantasy IX theme too.
