Two Arrangement Albums for Final Fantasy's 25th

Square Enix is focusing on the franchise's most consistent strength here.

By Dylan Coffey on 2/28/2012
The Final Fantasy franchise has long been exalted for its incredible music direction. The venerable Nobuo Uematsu has created amazing scores for more than a dozen Final Fantasy titles, inspiring fans to create any number of adaptations of his work, such as users of OCRemix. For the 25th birthday of the franchise, Square Enix has decided to revisit this musical masterwork once more, announcing the release of two "Piano Opera CDs" which will be released in Japan on February 29th and are available for pre-order as we speak.

The truly significant part of this is that the first three Final Fantasy titles have never received a piano collection like this. Piano Opera Final Fantasy  I/II/III will boast 13 arrangements of Uematsu's songs and retail for about $32 USD. The second album, featuring music from the next three games, is the second its type released, meaning that either new songs will be visited or that old songs will be mixed up in new ways. The IV/V/VI album is slated for a May 16th, 2012 release and pre-orders are not yet available.
