Square Enix has long been known for having some of the most inspiring and grand music in their games over the years, and now they aim to bring it straight to your ear holes by releasing a wide range of it on music streaming services.
Have you ever thought to your self, “I really wish I could zone out on my daily commute to work and listen to some epic and breathtaking music”? Well now you can as Square Enix has listed an extensive range of past Final Fantasy soundtracks on to most major music streaming platforms such as Apple Music, Spotify, and Amazon music.
If there is one thing Square Enix is known for besides their lengthy back catalogue of Final Fantasy games, it’s the immensely satisfying music that always accompanies these titles from the long-time composer of the series, Nobuo Uematsu.
Nobuo has always taken great pride and care when crafting the music for each entry into the series, and this really shows as they are widely regarded as some of the finest music to ever be put into a video game. The scores always set the right tone for any moment, whether you’re just running around the map on a Chocobo, or grinding your way through battles to level up.
Some of my personal favourites include ‘To Zanarkand’ from Final Fantasy X, ‘Liberi Fatali’ from Final Fantasy VIII, and of course ‘One Winged Angel’ from Final Fantasy VII.
Square Enix announced during their E3 2019 presentation that they will be releasing a wide range of other music as well, so expect some of your other favourite franchises to have their music released in the coming months.
This certainly isn’t the first time a popular gaming company has put their games onto streaming services; hopefully the trend continues. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
