Sweet sounds

We like to debate a lot of topics here at Push Square towers, but whether Final Fantasy XV will actually ever release is a particularly popular one. Still, while director Tetsuya Nomura has likened the PlayStation 4 title’s production to “climbing a mountain”, we can happily report that the soundtrack is at the very least making progress.

Over in Japan, publisher Square Enix is preparing to deploy an album based on the works of legendary composer Yoko Shimomura. While this will focus on many of the luminary’s earlier pieces – including timeless tracks heard in Kingdom Hearts, Legend of Mana, and many more – it will also include a tune from the company’s oft-delayed next-gen role-playing game.

Elaborately dubbed ‘Omnis Lacrima’, this is supposedly the haunting song used in last year’s E3 trailer. Expect lots of stirring strings and driving drums, then. You’ll be able to hear the full thing for yourself when the CD is released on 26th March for ¥3,000 ($29). In the meantime, you can listen to some samples through here.
