Final Fantasy IX is part of the Final Fantasy franchise by Squaresoft (now Square Enix). It is a RPG and was released on the Play Station console (PSX). As with most Final Fantasy titles, the game was set in a newly created universe and with fresh characters. Unlike the two games before, FFIX featured a medieval setting and distinctly different character design.

Set in Gaia, the player follows the journey of Zidane, a human with a monkey tail and part of a group of bandits. The group kidnaps Princess Garnet, only to find out that she had been planning to flee from home anyway to see her uncle, a regent from another city. During their escape the group's airship is damaged and crashes, at which point the main story begins.
