It has taken nearly two entire years but Square Enix has finally released an update for the PlayStation 4 version of Final Fantasy IX that fixes its infamous background music issue which prevented music from looping.

The fix is described as "Adjusted background music to resume where it left off when paused for battles or Tetra Master."

The update also fixed an issue causing players to get stuck on the world map along with other minor bugs.

Square Enix has also stated that they are working to fix the issue in the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC versions of the game as well.

It's great to hear that they're in fact also fixing it for the other platforms but we're left in the dark regarding Final Fantasy VII. Despite the Xbox One and Switch versions being updated to fix its music looping issue the PS4 version still has the issue and don't get me started on the PC versions.
