Remember Theatrhythm? The Final Fantasy 3DS rhythm game Square released in Japan back in February? You’re probably not the only one who doesn’t, but Square Enix have seen fit to release new DLC for it including several new songs from other Final Fantasy titles. Of course one of the songs isn’t from a game that’s seen the light of day yet.
Yoko Shimomura’s Somnus which was released back in 2008 and feature in the debut Final Fantasy Versus XIII trailer in 2006, will be coming to the 3DS game on April 4th. Theatrhythm is currently planned to arrive in Europe and America this summer. See the preview below.
Final Fantasy XIII-2′s soundtrack has been released and tracks from it are popping up everywhere online. Final Fantasy XIII took a pretty big divergence from the series norm when it included several vocal tracks from background music. FFXIII-2 does even more of the same, with some resulting in either a disaster or hilarity. Take a listen of XIII-2′s new metal Chocobo theme below.
Youtube user psychotron502 has uploaded several other songs from the soundtrack, including the more traditional Chocobo theme for those of you who couldn’t handle the other one. Take a look.
Final Fantasy XIII-2′s soundtrack is coming out tomorrow in Japan, a day before the games release. To celebrate, Square Enix have released 7 full tracks from it for free for us to all enjoy. They’ve all been uploaded to Youtube and are available in the links below.
Finally, sample tracks from the last disc of the soundtrack has been released today. It is probably the last batch of sample tracks they’ll be releasing since the soundtrack’s release date is just around the corner (5 days left!). Procede to the official site of the soundtrack and enjoy listening to the latest sample tracks!
Lastly, Square Enix has released a promotion video for the soundtrack, showing some comments made by the main composers, Masashi Hamauzu, Naoshi Mizuta, and Mitsuto Suzuki. Unfortunately the whole video is in Japanese; Nevertheless, if you’re that interested, watch the video provided below!
The official site for XIII-2′s soundtrack has been updated! Head over to the site and scroll down to Disc 3 in the Tracklist section and enjoy the newly revealed sample tracks!
The official site for Final Fantasy XIII-2′s soundtrack has been finally updated featuring some new track samples of its first disc.
The soundtrack will consist of music composed by Masashi Hamauzu (Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy IV:Complete Collection, Final Fantasy VII:Dirge of Cerberus, Final Fantasy X), Naoshi Mizuta (Final Fantasy XI, Parasite Eve 2), and Mitsuto Suzuki (Final Fantasy XIII, The 3rd Birthday). It will be on 4 discs and is due to release on the 14th of December. A limited edition of the soundtrack will also be released on the same date, and will have a bonus DVD containing trailer footage and possibly other extras.
Square has announced even more pre-order DLC for Final Fantasy XIII-2 in Japan and once again, it’s coming with a CD release. The games mini album to be specific. The download you’ll get is the Goddess’s Bangle and Goddesses’s Earring accessories. They both increase the strength and magical strength of the character they’re equipped on separately, however, having them both equipped at the same time also gives your character a special ability which strengthens item recovery.
The Diva Mic and Diva Headphones coming with the games Japanese theme have also had their abilities revealed. Using them both separately increases the item drop rate and Gil earned in battles. Using them together gives the special ability of increasing the rare item drop. But there’s even more. If you buy both the games theme song single and the mini album with the Goddess’s accessories, you can combine them to form a Super Accessory. Equipping all four accessories will increase your characters CP gained in battles. It may be a cash-in, but for die hard fans, it’s a nice incentive to buy more merchandise. It should be noted that actually being able to use all four accessories will likely come later in the game when that many accessory slots can be unlocked.
The theme song for Final Fantasy Type-0 has been leaked a day early. Zero by Bump of Chicken was due to go on sale on the 19th but the single has managed to make it’s way online to the masses, earlier than expected. It’s certainly not the greatest Final Fantasy theme song but for those of you so inclined, listen to the track thanks to the power of Youtube, below.
The full 12 minutes of Final Fantasy Type-0 gameplay from yesterdays Nico Nico stream has been officially released by Square Enix. There’s a lot to take in, including possibly the most terrifying Malboro in Final Fantasy history.
