Final Fantasy IX TV Show to be revealed this week
Ever since the news of the Final Fantasy IX TV show broke last year, fans have been waiting for a chance to see some of the show in action. Thanks to an interview Animation Magazine had with Bruno Danzel d'Aumont, VP of International Licensing and Marketing for Cyber Group Studios, we now know the company plans to show off the show alongside a slew of their other projects during this year's Licensing Expo in Las Vegas:
What are some of the new shows you will be bringing to the event?
At the Licensing Expo, we will, of course, continue to promote our global preschool property Gigantosaurus, with new content to come internationally. It will be a great opportunity to share our upcoming plans with our licensees, agents, and new partners. Additionally, our most recently developed shows — Digital Girl, The McFire Family, Press Start! and Final Fantasy IX — will be presented for the first time. These four new series have a strong licensing appeal for different age targets.
No specific timeframe for the reveal was given during the interview, but the Expo runs from the 24th through the 26th - so fans won't have much longer to wait before we get our first taste of the show in action. Late last year, a Final Fantasy IX remake was spotted within a GeForce Now database leak, alongside what would turn out to be Chrono Cross: Radical Dreamers Edition. While we're still unsure if a remake is actually coming, perhaps there's a chance with the show's incoming reveal we may see a similar reveal for the remake - if one indeed exists.
