Final Fantasy IX: Created by a team of 28 people totally in love with the series, Final Fantasy IX: Memoria Project won its first trailer.
The project, which will not be playable, features a new version of the classic RPG created by a team of professional developers and artists with an updated look, using modern graphics. The Memoria Project began to be produced by just two people, in January 2020, and since then it has been gaining strength and today brings together a team of almost 30 professionals.
Now, the team’s creation has finally gained its first trailer, showing the result of nearly two years of work. Check out the demo video below:
In a conversation with Gematsu, Dan Eder, who heads the project, spoke a little about the Memoria Project. According to him, as it is not a playable product, the objective of his team is to show what a new updated version of FFIX would be like, with modern graphics, in the new generation of consoles.
Eder, who also worked as a 3D artist on Warner Bros.’s recently announced MultiVersus. Games, says the idea is to try to motivate Square Enix to release a Final Fantasy IX remake.
The project leader told the site that, for now, the team’s focus is on delivering gameplay videos exploring Alexandria. After that, however, the plan is to create some cinematic scenes and work on combat sequences, demonstrating the potential of a new version of the updated classic for the present day.
Final Fantasy IX: Memoria Project is a demonstration only and will not be made available to the public.
