Square-Enix To Release Special Holiday Soundtrack

Last week, we promised we wouldn't go as Call of Duty-crazy with our headlines as other sources. Unfortunately, while we haven't necessarily broken that promise, we find we still have to stick to covering big news, and CoD has dominated. We can't really help that.

However, we still sort of feel that our larger-than-normal contingent of role-playing fans who won't touch Black Ops is being ignored. There's just nothin' for them recently. So, for all you old-school JRPG aficionados who could use a smile, and who recall so many of Squaresoft's gems with such affection, this is for you: head over to RPG Land, where you will learn that on November 22, Square-Enix will release a 7-track CD featuring remixes of several popular game songs. Each will get a holiday overhaul, and tracks from the likes of Final Fantasy VII, Legend of Mana and Chrono Trigger are getting the yuletide treatment. It'll cost 1,600 yen and only launch in Japan but hey, there are no lyrics here and even if there were, who cares? Music is universal, right? So maybe you'll want to import it. But at the very least, clicking on a sample of each tune might just make your day.

Let's not forget that certain old classics weren't only great for their gameplay; the music was always essential.

P.S. Make sure to check out the Golden Saucer one. LOL

RPG music is often the best and along with the missing LV I will tell you FFXIII is cream of the crop. But I gotta say, don't ignore Nier. That soundtrack is so pimp.

I bought Nier recently for dirt cheap, curious to see what they've done with it, i havent looked at any reviews so i'll be able to go in with an open mind.

After i have completed Enslaved that is :)

As for the soundtrack release, fully approve for a bit of fun.

Have you heard of Vinyl Fantasy? It's rap music remixed with the final fantasy 7 soundtrack and it is pretty impressive. Especially the Gold Saucer Ice Cream Paint Job remix.

Hmm, I wonder how much it will cost importing and all, because I really want it.

right.
so remastering the games soundtracks is not too hard, but the games is?
ok, maybe thats self explanatory but still why does $E refuse to give its fans games there use too?
honestly if $E actually did a FF7 remake in HD, it would sell so well it would make the avatar look like a B movie!
or, than, kingdom hearts 3....................

The Chocobo remix is brilliant.

I had the image of a roaring log fire and Xmas tree, with a Chocobo and a Moogle hanging up stockings.

I'm going to the Distant Worlds concert in Toronto in 2 weeks. Live FF music, and Nobuo Uematsu will be present. Gonna be sweet!

Chocobo Theme and Chrono Trigger were the best ones. Kinda feel like the others are little too synthesized for a good Christmas feel. Fun stuff though.
