New Final Fantasy Piano Opera CD Has Music From Final Fantasy VII, VIII And IX

By Eugene . February 26, 2014 . 5:00pm

Square Enix will be releasing a new Piano Opera: Final Fantasy VII/VIII/IX soundtrack CD, the publisher has announced in Japan.

 

You can hear some of the music on the OST’s main site, and the CD will cover music from each game including some well remembered songs such as “Melodies of Life” and “Liberi Fatali”.

 

The CD is decently priced, going for just 2,880 yen (US$29) and you can order it at the Square Enix store here. Personally, I was hoping for “Eyes on Me” to be included as well, but we can’t have everything.

 

This isn’t the first piano soundtrack done by Square Enix either (Not by a looooong shot) but aficionados will never say no to more.

 

If you happen to be in Japan on May 10th, you might prefer to hear this live in a concert hall. The Yomiuri Otemachi Hall will be hosting a concert with the music at 6,000 yen (US$60) You can check out the details and camp the websites for tickets here.

    AND IX!? Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet…. I’m so used to seeing the sad order of vii, viii, and…………… X

    Huh, that’s odd that “Eyes on Me” isn’t on there.

      There’s 12 tracks and 4 for each game.. I’m listening to the 7 tracks now and they sound pretty good.. I know this is just instrumental but I never liked Eyes on Me too much because it was sung by Faye Wong lol, and I’ve never been a fan of hers..

        Listen to the Ancient Bards version instead then.

          Yeah I know there are other ver, I just don’t have a good first impression of the song because they chose to go with Faye Wong, other singers would’ve been more suitable in the first place. I didn’t like her first Cantonese song in HK lol

  • epy

    Yes! I’ve been waiting for this.

  • Jonah Paley

    Alright!

    Hopefully they’ll continue. If they’re doing it by every three game (FFI-III, FFIV-VI, and FFVII-IX)…dare I hope for at least another two installments? X, XI, and XII, followed by XIII, XIV/XIV: ARR, and XV if it’s out by then?

  • DragKudo

    Feel my blade better be on there.

  • JustThisOne

    :’) Wish I could read more of that tracklist. But from what I can see of the english, it ain’t bad!

  • new_tradition

    Not sure how different these will sound from the piano soundtracks already out for these games. If they can manage a new arrangement, maybe

    • Your Face

      These will be new arrangements. Have you heard the first Piano Opera album? The arrangements were of much higher quality than most of the standard Piano Collections.

        Truly? Sweet~
