as the director and game designer, while Minaba served as the art director. Sakaguchi had envisioned the game to be a spin-off ''Final Fantasy'' title that was a reflection of all past games in the numbered series. However, although a spin-off title, Sakaguchi gave Ito a team of staff even larger than the team working on ''Final Fantasy VIII'' back in Tokyo. Added to this benefit, over half of this team were Hollywood CGI (Computer-generated imagery) artists and animators, some of which had previously been employed by Industrial Light & Magic. As development progressed under Ito's direction, the amount of locations and content of the game grew exponentially. Sakaguchi eventually felt that the quality and scale of the game had surpassed both ''Final Fantasy VII'' and ''Final Fantasy VIIII''. As a result of this, he decided the game should be called ''Final Fantasy IX''. Ito's work on the game involved him being responsible for all the gameplay aspects such as the ATB system, Equipment Ability system, the unique gameplay attributes of each of the playable characters, and all the various items, equipment and spells obtainable in the game. Also, as with ''Final Fantasy VI'', he was responsible for the structure, pacing and flow of the entire game and tried to strike a balance between the gameplay and event scenes so the game didn't feel too story-driven. In further pursuit of this goal, he created the Active Time Event (ATE) system as a means of making the event scenes more interactive and part of the gameplay experience. PlayStation 2 era When development of ''Final Fantasy IX'' and ''Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within'' were finished, Hironobu Sakaguchi, Hiroyuki Ito, Hideo Minaba and other Square (Square (company)) staff returned to Tokyo. Sakaguchi heard that ''Vagrant Story'' had become the first game developed by Square to get a perfect score from ''Famitsu''. Sakaguchi felt a huge sense of pride about this and praised Yasumi Matsuno as a game director and game designer. WikiPedia:Tokyo Dmoz:Regional Asia Japan Prefectures Tokyo Commons:Category:Tokyo

Tokyo is often referred to and thought of as a city, but is officially known and governed as a "metropolitan prefecture", which differs from and combines elements of both a city and a prefecture; a characteristic unique to Tokyo. The Tokyo metropolitan government administers the 23 Special Wards of Tokyo (Special wards of Tokyo) (each governed as an individual city), which cover the area that was formerly the City of Tokyo before it merged and became the subsequent metropolitan prefecture in 1943. The metropolitan government also administers 39 municipalities (Municipalities of Japan) in the western part of the prefecture and the two outlying island chains. The population of the special wards is over 9 million people, with the total population of the prefecture exceeding 13 million. The prefecture is part of the world's most populous metropolitan area (Largest Metropolitan Area) with upwards of 37.8 million people and the world's largest urban agglomeration economy (List of cities by GDP). The city hosts 51 of the Fortune Global 500 companies, the highest number of any city. The city is also home of various television networks like Fuji TV and the Tokyo Broadcasting System.
