An old interview touched on the game’s Active Time Event system, which gives players a look into what different characters are experiencing at various points in the game at other regions in the game world.
“When we were creating FFIX, there were two things that we kept in mind. Number one, to make sure that we made a story that was easy to understand,” said Norimichi Kurosawa, who was the game’s animation manager. “And two, to create some specific personalities for the characters and sub characters and these were the two points we kept in mind when creating the Active Time Event system. With this, it is possible to understand what the sub characters have gone through, making the story and personalities of the characters more easily to relate to.”
