New FFIX Characters Unveiled! ...Sort Of

Drop by drop, Square is releasing new media from their next installment to their flagship series Final Fantasy.

Last Saturday, a new Coca Cola commercial was on TV in Japan featuring a short FMV of Final Fantasy IX characters running after a capsule of Coke. Zidane, Vivi and Steiner are of course present but the commercial showed a new character, the first female character so far, whose name remains unknown. This new character bears a certain resemblance with Final Fantasy VIII's Rinoa. We've got this Final Fantasy IX commercial for you to view! Click here to download it.

Square also revealed the silhouettes of the 5 remaining characters on their goods page. Going on with the Coca Cola/FFIX campaign, 500mL bottles of Coke will carry small FFIX figures, coming in two different editions, normal or red transparent. While Square did show pictures of the known characters' (Zidane, Vivi and Steiner) figures, they only showed the silhouettes to the five other characters. We'll have to wait to see what those characters really look like! Final Fantasy IX is scheduled for a July 19th release in Japan. Until then, you can click here to see the characters figures.
