What's surprising, apparently the CDs Square handed out even had Maire Breatnach's name credited. I don't know if she's directly involved or if it's just because the new OST is heavily based off her Celtic Moon arrangements.

Yeah, I'd bet the game is using Celtic Moon arrangements.

Lovely medley; I suspect this will serve as the opening theme song?

I still haven't picked up the FFIII DS OST yet.  Refresh my memory; was the album score remastered from the original DS sound source?  Or is is exactly the same?

Ramza Sep 28, 2007

same as DS sound source. Though there are a few decent arranged tracks at the end. smile

And yeah that medley will probably be used for opening FMV considering the audio quality.

The song is arranged by Junya Nakano and plays during the opening movie.  The in-game music on the Tokyo Game Show demo was very close to the original.  The quality of the electronic instruments was enhanced but the compositions themselves remain unchanged.  There are direct links to mp3s of two new songs found on the Square Enix Music sampler at the address below.

Thank you!  Anyone who links to new Sakimoto and new Nakano arranging Uematsu = the man.  Those samples are awesome.  The end of the FFIV one gave me a chill!

*adds two soundtracks to my "must buy when released" list*

The medley wasn't bad, but I thought the "Prologue" section was weak compared to the original. I'll be interested in how they do some more of my favorites from the soundtrack (battle themes, Inside the Giant, Whale...)

Yeah the ending was a little rough but it was pretty great overall.

Chris Nov 4, 2007

As announced a few days ago, Junya Nakano will be arranging the rest of the soundtrack too. I think his arrangements will be quite minimal like Dawn of Mana's, but he'll probably enhance the timbre of many pieces with his instrument use. The synth is by Hirosato Noda, otherwise known for It's a Wonderful World, Hanjuku Hero VS 3D, Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix +, Dawn of Mana, Romancing SaGa -Minstrel Song-, Final Fantasy XI, and Front Mission 3.

Here's to hoping the official soundtrack will feature two discs of music rather than cramming everything into one disc with no loops. Based on Square Enix's other efforts, I'm not optimistic.

I would like to think they would use two discs, to a certain degree they're probably aware that many weren't too pleased with Final Fantasy IV's original soundtrack release - expending one disc for that score was pathetic. If they wanted to do things really right they make this a four disc beast, finally looping the SNES version. Of course, that'll never happen.

TerraEpon Nov 4, 2007

Actually, if the number and length of tracks were to stay similar, it could all easily fit on three CDs. Looping FFIV actually only comes to about 90 minutes (consider the ending alone is 12 minutes)

Eh.

My personal hope is that, unlike IIIDS, that they add some new music into there - especially if they're actually going to fulfill the hinted promise of eadding some of the original script/plot that was cut. And not just cutscene music, either. I'd like to see Nakano try and fit some new work in among Uematsu's score.

tl;dr - more battle themes plz

Cain Highwind Nov 5, 2007

What about the Uematsu's unused FFIV music from the Minimum Album? It used to be easily locatable on YT but it was taken down it seems.

jeriaska Nov 5, 2007 (edited Nov 5, 2007)

Looks like Final Fantasy Republic may have three, Cain.  Tracks 6-8 on FF Mix: the Origin, Restless Moments, and Sea of Silence, while I've heard the other three tracks on the Minimum album were remixes.  There might be more I'm not aware of.

All of the music on the FF4 Minimum Album were put on the F.F. Mix album. Although from what I recall, I wasn't very impressed with most of the tracks on FF Mix, so it could be just as well if you decided to ignore them.

Bernhardt Nov 5, 2007 (edited Nov 5, 2007)

My question is this: Since when did Kain, the Dragoon of Final Fantasy IV, ever have the surname of Highwind?

I don't recall it ever being mentioned in the first, original press of the game on the SNES, let alone in that release's respective manual.

I've been meaning to ask since I first heard it I-don't-remember-where.

Vaeran Nov 6, 2007 (edited Nov 6, 2007)

He's always had it. The version of FF4 we got on the SNES left out the last names, among many other things.

What Vaeran said. And for further reference, all of the major characters' full names are listed on the japanese wiki page, right here.

A DVD? Somewhat doubt that sucker is going to be region free.

Yeah, it'll most likely be R2. At least there's two discs instead of one crammed disc with short songs like FFIII DS OST.

TerraEpon Nov 13, 2007

UGH f---ing HELL!

Why must they ruin my shelf space like that with crap?
