Square Enix Releasing Remastered Final Fantasy Soundtracks
Classic Final Fantasy games are memorable for multiple reasons. For many, the music is one of those reasons.
Square Enix plans to go all retro and release three Remaster Version soundtrack CDs from old-school FF titles. According to Siliconera, Final Fantasy IV is first on the list.
The FFIV Remaster will be available in Japan on July 3, and it will boast remastered Super Famicom ditties such as "The Red Wings," "The Theme of Love," and "Battle with Golbez's Four Fiends." First-run copies will even include a Yoshitaka Amano cover illustration. Later this year, we can expect the Remaster soundtracks for FFV and FFVI, the latter of which is bound to be the most popular. Even after all these years, I can probably recognize most of the songs from FFVI without too much trouble.
You probably won't see any of these soundtracks in North America, but you can always purchase them from an importer like CDJapan. And the hardcore just might. Or, these Remasters might become available digitally at some point, so that's another option.
