A new Final Fantasy IX side quest was discovered

The game still delivers 13 years later

Our Lord of Lords Jim Sterling considers Final Fantasy IX to be his favorite game in the series. I wish I could share in his exuberance -- though I own a physical copy of FFIX, I've yet to actually play it. This newest discovery, however, may push me to tackle my massive backlog sooner rather than later.

Above is a side quest that eluded FFIX players for 13 years -- it's not even mentioned in the official guidebook! It's available on the fourth disc, and the end result is the Protect Ring, which halves elemental damage on top of offering a bunch of other treats. Just follow the steps in the YouTube description to clear the quest.

In an age where everything you could ever want to know about a game is just a Google search away, it's refreshing to know that there are secrets left uncovered. It makes me wonder what else we've yet to unearth in our favorite games of yesteryear.
