Final Fantasy VIII Musical Remix Album, Successor, Now Available
Loyal Final Fantasy followers might have to grab this ASAP.
A new album featuring remixes from the role-playing classic Final Fantasy VIII is now available; find all the details here.
This is a beautiful six-disc collection featuring the work of over 150 composers and YouTube personalities. The latter provided their own musical visions of the game's iconic soundtrack, which was originally composed by Nobuo Uematsu. Production company Materia Collective calls the new offerings "unique and imaginative," and obviously created by those who adore the franchise and treat it with great respect.
This album is called Successor, as it's the second remix collection from Materia Collective. The first was for Final Fantasy VII, as you might expect, and it released last October. Said Materia founder Sebastian Wolff:
"After our debut album Materia, choosing Final Fantasy VIII as a follow-up tribute album was the next logical choice, and aligning the release with the game's release anniversary seemed poignant. Final Fantasy VIII is musically distinct, and its eclectic mix of music suited our diverse skillsets."
And by the way, if you'd like to feel old, February 11 marked the 17th anniversary of the day FFVIII first hit store shelves. 'sigh'
