It is also available to preorder outside of Japan from CDJapan here and Amazon Japan here, however I don’t think there’s any rush to import this from Japan as it will likely become available on both the EU and NA Square Enix stores later on.
Square Enix Music in Japan have just announced a Final Fantasy III vinyl release in celebration of the game’s 30th anniversary. It will feature 8 tracks – four arrangements and the original versions of those same four tracks.
It will be a single LP, but there are currently no details on the packaging or how the record will look. It will include a download card for a digital copy of the release.
Wayô Records will be releasing a selection of tracks from Benyamin Nuss’ piano arrangement album “Benyamin Nuss Plays Uematsu” for its 10th anniversary. The album features piano renditions of music from Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey and the Final Fantasy series as well as two tribute pieces that Nuss and Uematsu wrote for each other.
The album will be a single LP housed in a regular LP jacket. It will be available in two variants – a standard black variant, and a collector’s edition variant on black and white split colored vinyl. The collector’s edition will be limited to 300 copies and also comes with a photograph signed by Benyamin Nuss.
It was announced a little while ago now that Square Enix would be releasing a selection of tracks from the original Final Fantasy VII as well as from Final Fantasy VII Remake together on vinyl. Now official orders open in a few days (and some distributors have already opened up preorders).
The release will be a 2LP picture disc – with art on one disc from the original Final Fantasy VII and art on the other from Remake. It appears to be housed in a triple gatefold jacket.
It’s being advertised as a “limited made-to-order printing”, and it appears they will try to take as many preorders as they can within the production limits of their pressing plant.
Previously we’ve been treated to both Distant Worlds and Distant Worlds II on vinyl, so naturally it had been rumored for a while that we would get more in the series. And we are, as Distant Worlds III: More Music From Final Fantasy have just opened up for preorders.
Distant Worlds III features arrangements of tracks from Final Fantasy VI, VIII, IX, X, XII, XIII, and XIV as well as some medleys spanning the majority of the series.
The release will be a 2LP on blue vinyl and will presumably come in a gatefold jacket like the previous titles.
It was originally released late last year and only sold in the merch booth at Distant Worlds concerts – until today!
Distant Worlds: Music From Final Fantasy is an album of arranged music from the Final Fantasy series performed by the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. It contains tracks from Final Fantasy I-IV, VI-IX, and XI.
The music was originally recorded at the Stockholm Concert Hall in 2007.
The release is a 2LP on black vinyl and is housed in a gatefold jacket.
