• Fans are buzzing about possible Final Fantasy 9 remake rumors on Twitter.
  • Some hope for quality of life improvements in Final Fantasy 9 remake, while others believe the original is already perfect.
  • Rumors suggest a Final Fantasy 9 remake with a budget smaller than FF7’s, possibly coming to Nintendo Switch with no official details yet.

Rumors concerning the details of a Final Fantasy 9 game have surfaced on Twitter. Final Fantasy has been particularly popular recently, as Final Fantasy 16 released in June 2023, and Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth was released on Leap Day, February 29 this year. Audiences may be wondering what the next move for the series is and if their favorite will be remade. Some hope to see a Final Fantasy 9 remake on the same scale as Final Fantasy 7‘s remake trilogy. The most recent installment, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, takes a significantly shorter game and expands on every detail, leading to a runtime of roughly 41 hours for most gamers.

Some fans may desire a remake that visually improves on Final Fantasy 9, but brings quality of life changes to a classic. As some consider it one of the best RPGs of the 2000s, there is a chance that some believe Final Fantasy 9 to be perfect as is and that a remake is unnecessary. Similarly, there are some who recommend sticking to the original Final Fantasy 7 for anyone trying to understand what made the game so popular in the first place.

Although nothing is official, rumors have surfaced about a Final Fantasy 9 Remake before. Today, Twitter user Silknigth states that those working on Final Fantasy 9‘s remake appear to have agreed on the idea of making it as faithful as possible to the original, with a budget that is modest compared to the Final Fantasy 7 Remake trilogy. Silknigth claims the game was initially planned for the Nintendo Switch, and suggests that it may have been scaled up for Nintendo’s upcoming console. The leaker tells fans not to expect any official information anytime soon.

This news may be exciting for anyone hoping for a remake that is more comparable to something like Persona 3 Reload. Compared to the original game, Reload is updated and has quality of life improvements. In contrast, many fans agree that games like Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth and Remake fundamentally change too many aspects of the story to be a player’s introduction to the series. The 7 Remake trilogy includes aspects that require an understanding of the events of the original Final Fantasy 7 release, ultimately functioning more as a sequel.

Some may be doubtful of the veracity of any claims being made by a leaker on Twitter. However, one distinguishing feature of this leak is that Silknigth happens to be followed by industry insider Jason Schreier. This does not confirm the truth of statements being made, but it does mean that information from this user has caught his attention before. If Silknigth is correct, there will not be official information concerning this game for a long time. Currently, Square Enix is focusing on other Final Fantasy entries, so fans may just have to rely on rumors until then.
