New Final Fantasy IX side quest discovered [Update]

13 years after release.

A new Final Fantasy IX side quest has been discovered, thirteen years after the game’s release.

A YouTube video has appeared showing the quest, which is called “The Lost Nero Family.” The reward for the quest is a Protect Ring.

Discovered several days ago by user ‘The_Kusabi_’ on GameFAQs, and later confirmed by user ‘MysterPixel’, the quest involves heading to Tantalus hideout at the beginning of the fourth disc. Further instructions can be found under the YouTube video or on the GameFAQs post itself.

The last of the original PlayStation Final Fantasy games, Final Fantasy IX was released in 2000 in North America and Japan. It was later re-released in 2010 on PlayStation Network.

Update: Some are reporting that they’ve completed this quest before. Naturally, this would mean that this is not a ‘newly discovered’ quest. We will look into it further.

Thanks, NeoGAF.
