A little while ago I commented on Square-Enix’s announcement of a remastered trilogy that would do justice to the brilliance of Uematsu’s Super Famicom work.
This week, Square-Enix has published the third and final part of the original soundtrack remastered version trilogy, the forever eternal, Final Fantasy VI. Thirty select samples across the 3-disc CD set are currently available to be streamed on the trilogy’s official website (Japanese). Time to reminisce in the remastered character themes of ‘Terra’, ‘Locke’, and ‘Edgar and Sabin’, and to relive those unforgettable moments in the story through tunes like ‘Coin of Fate’, The Phantom Forest’, and ‘The Serpent Trench’.
The release would not be complete without some flash artwork from long time Final Fantasy contributor, Yoshitaka Amano, whose memorable work graces the cover as well as the liner work of the album. The album is now on sale on Square-Enix’s Japanese e-store for 3,500円 (Around US$ 33), but like the other remastered releases I am sure that it will make its way to us western fans via iTunes soon enough.
