The game's adaption is aimed at children aged 8 to 13.
An animated series based on Final Fantasy 9 is in the works, with production set to begin in early 2022.
Square Enix, the publisher of Final Fantasy, and Cyber Group Studios, the developer of animated children's entertainment, will collaborate on the new series. According to Kidscreen, the series will be aimed at children aged eight to thirteen, and the firms have yet to decide on the number of episodes or length of the series.
Final Fantasy has been adapted for the big and small screens in a variety of ways, but this is the first time a single game in the series has been slated for an animated series.
Final Fantasy 9 was published in 2000, and it's an especially good candidate for being turned into an animated series because it's likely the most "cartoonish" of all the Final Fantasy games, at least in terms of aesthetics.
When it initially came out, Final Fantasy 9 was viewed as a bit of a misfit, since it strayed from the adult sci-fi tone of its two predecessors in favour of a tribute to earlier games in the series.
At this time, the majority of the Final Fantasy fanbase has warmed up to it, and this animated series should serve as an introduction to the game for a whole new generation.
