Bringing back classics.

Just came across an article (via Siliconera) where they were showcasing the Final Fantasy 9 he’s going to be made into a kids animated TV show. The main production will be handled by Paris Cyber Group starting year end 2021 or early 2022.

Square-Enix is probably planning to reintroduce this game to a younger audiences since the designs world and style of Hironobu Sakaguchi last game before leaving Squaresoft. Which I feel is a traditional final fantasy game of the Retro SNES days

Transmedia

I remembered that Ff9 was the last FF for the ps1. I don’t think they did any other media products with this one. It will be interesting to see how they revamp this into a Transmedia property.

There was an art book it was quite popular with my classmates back in animation school.

Check out this FF9 Tumblr for more pics of the book
