Final Fantasy IX on PC will have the option to turn off random encounters



Final Fantasy IX will arrive on PC this month with a few bells and whistles in tow, according to the game's official Steam page. Evidently there will be seven game boosters in this version, including "high speed" and "no encounter" modifications.

These features aren't particularly new, as they've been in recent re-releases like Final Fantasy VII on PS4, but it's appreciated. A lot of classic JRPGs are just that -- classic -- but the time sink involved with high random encounter rates kills me sometimes. It's nice to know that you can turn off trash fights and focus on prepping for the main encounters.

Final Fantasy IX [Steam -- Thanks, Rick!]
