As additional games are announced by Square Enix, the possibility of a Final Fantasy 9 reboot is becoming further and increasingly realistic. Maybe the developer is working on a recreation of its very successful Final Fantasy games after the popularity of Final Fantasy 7 Remastered.
Many Square Enix projects were verified to be in development after the GeForce Now information breach several months ago. Initially, the Japanese publisher/developer sought to minimize the impact of the breach by claiming that most of the revealed names were genuine and several were purely “fanciful.” However, it’s becoming clear that the disclosures were a reliable predictor.
Nvidia GeForce Now List Proved Genuine
There was several genuine labels included inside the Nvidia GeForce Now directory. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End as well as Final Fantasy 7 Remastered all have Windows editions. Remasters of Chrono Trigger and Fable was one of the titles and monikers that were later discovered to be legitimate titles.
The two Kingdom Hearts games were revealed by the Tomb Raider designer recently, combined with Final Fantasy 16, and the sequel sections to FF7R, Final Fantasy 9 might be a fantastic candidate for the developer to revive.
FF9 was indeed a farewell to the classic PlayStation when it came out decades ago and quickly became a cult classic. Kitase helmed FF7, whereas Ito oriented FF8 (he had already served as the primary architect for FF8). After directing Final Fantasy 12, the designer would straight flush to the next installment.

Re-published as a PlayStation 1 Original around a decade ago for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable (PSP), and PlayStation Vita (Vita), it was subsequently reissued in 2016 on Windows and PlayStation 4 with several minor upgrades to the visuals.
In the meanwhile, a complete overhaul of the game may be a fascinating endeavor. As with FF7R, will the studio push all-in and improve on the core design, or would it stick to the tried-and-true method of just updating the visuals to meet today’s benchmarks?
Although the studio has been unable to deliver any concrete information on an FF9 rerelease, the signs point to its likely presence, so gamers are understandably excited about the prospect of a more contemporary take on a game as quirky as Final Fantasy 9.
