The Final Fantasy IX animated series will appear at the Las Vegas Licensing Expo. This information was revealed in an interview from Animation Magazine with Bruno Danzel d’Aumont, the Vice President of International Licensing and Marketing at Cyber Group Studios. Cyber Group Studios is the studio developing the Final Fantasy IX animated series with Square Enix. [Thanks, IGN!]
The Las Vegas Licensing Expo will be held from May 24 to May 26, 2022. This is when more information about the animated series will appear, though the exact date and time are unknown. The project was initially revealed in June 2021, accompanied by a brief synopsis of the series.
d’Aumont did not reveal what Cyber Group Studios could potentially share at the Las Vegas Licensing Expo, only that this will be the first time the studio will officially present the animated series. As the series is described as an adaptation of the game, it will likely follow a similar storyline. In the game, Zidane the thief and Vivi the black mage kidnap Princess Garnet before teaming up with her to help save the world from evil.
The Final Fantasy IX animated series is in development. More information will appear at the Las Vegas Licensing Expo, which will be held from May 24 to May 26, 2022.
