In celebration of Final Fantasy VII Remake, Square Enix has released the entire Distant Worlds and A New World music compilation on Bandcamp. This digital medley contains every musical moment, battle medley, and character theme from Final Fantasy VII ever released by Distant Worlds and A New World.
Considering how excellent the arranged pieces are, this collection would be a great addition to any fan’s collection. You can purchase the full album of ten tracks in total for $8.50 here.
April 2020’s NPD data shows that Final Fantasy VII Remake beat out Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and is now the most successful entry in the long-running franchise in terms of units sold and dollar sales in a launch month.
The director of Remake Tetsuya Nomura was the one to propose the original Final Fantasy VII’s most shocking moment. As previously revealed, Final Fantasy VII Remake has many new elements to it and Scenarist Kazushige Nojima even explains how he rewrote Cloud for the remake. We also translated comments from Nojima about how Final Fantasy VII influenced Final Fantasy VIII. In an interview posted through Square Enix, Co-Director Naoki Hamaguchi and Producer Yoshinori Kitase talk about their reasoning behind making some bold changes for the remake of such a beloved game — namely why Sephiroth was introduced so early in the game.
We also translated the short film made to promote the remake. Square Enix, meanwhile, is currently working on the second and possibly last episode. Square Enix released a trailer revealing the theme song of the game called Hollow, along with with many iconic moments and returning faces from the original PS1 classic. If you’re interested in how the remake plays, check out both of our previews from E3 2018, as well as my own in-depth preview of four chapters of the game. Our Features Editor also wrote about how the remake won him over as a non-Final Fantasy fan.
Square also announced the Orchestra World Tour, which will bring orchestral performances of the upcoming game’s soundtrack to cities in the US, Singapore, Thailand, the UK, and Japan. The tour will start at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, CA on June 14th, with the tour scheduled to run through February 2021 in Tokyo, Japan.
Final Fantasy VII Remake finally released on April 10th after a one month delay and you can purchase the game from Amazon here. Check out our extremely comprehensive review of the title here. I wrote a pretty comprehensive beginner’s guide for players just starting out (including some handy Materia and weapon builds for Tifa) but you can also check out this incredibly intricate and damaging combo to see why proper character builds matter in Remake.
