New Lightning Returns music to debut at Japan Game Music Festival 2013 By Erren Van Duine on June 27, 2013 at 1:25 PM

New music will be sampled for Lightning Returns this weekend at Japan’s Game Music Festival, according to Square Enix.

The official Lightning Returns Facebook page has updated with information on the event, including appearances by Mitsuto Suzuki and Sugimoto Tomoyuk live on June 29th and 30th. In addition to music from XIII-2, all-new unreleased music from Lightning Returns will make its debut. A similar event was held in 2011 for FFXIII-2.

No word on when these tracks will be made available online, but both Crimson Blitz and Naoshi Mizuta’s Savior are both available for purchase as singles through the iTunes store. Each of the continents in the game will have its own composer, and depending on the time of a day a different song will play.

    I’m so excited for this~ I wonder how many new tracks will play, and where they will be from. :)

  • Sapientia

    Sweet! Anyways, hoping to see a bit more of Hamauzu’s work than the others. I just prefer his style a bit more than the others. Perhaps we’ll see something with Mina a la IMERUAT? *crossing fingers*

    Going to have to resist listening. I want to hear it all come together in the final game.

    I’m the opposite, I prefered Suzuki and Mizuta’s (loved Mizuta’s tracks) songs more than Hamauzu. I’ve always felt Hamauzu has a similar sound to Sakuraba’s (of Tales of fame), though Hamauzu at least changes it up a little better.

    Either way though, I share in the excitement, as I LOVED XIII-2’s OST and liked the original XIII’s well enough, so yeah, looking forward to hearing more :D

  • Sapientia

    Don’t get me wrong, I like the other two as well, and XIII-2’s soundtrack was probably the most “original” soundtrack, if you get what I mean.
    I believe he tended to a lot of the pieces that had to do with Lightning and anything pre-FFXIII-2 in XIII-2’s OST, didn’t he? If that makes sense.

  • Anime10121

    Yep exactly, those among a few others were his main focus on the OST! While I liked his remixed Lightning theme in XIII-2, stuff like Caius theme (from Mizuta) was straight dope :P

    I mean, LISTEN TO THIS TRACK!!!

    Caius’s Theme is just…BOSS. I know I’m probably in the minority, but I prefer “Caius’s Theme” MUCH more than “One-Winged Angel” which I feel is way too overused.

  • Anime10121

    Man, I want to marry your comment! One-Winged Angel is a great song no doubt, but its VASTLY overrated! Caius’s Theme and Ultimetia’s battle theme from FFVIII ( I think it was called The Extreme) both surpass OWA imo.

  • Ehren Rivers

    So has anybody else been keeping up with all of the people they’re bringing in for Lightning Returns music?

    We’ve got some people from that video game orchestra, the lead singer of Language, and NOW there’s apparently a four-woman group called FUL that is helping with Mitsuto Suzuki’s tracks

  • Ksar

    Still Nothing ? Damn, it’s almost the end of the week-end

  • LightningF

    Oh gosh, this weekend has been so long waiting for this soundtrack :(, and it’s still not released! Anybody have any info on when it actually will be out? Thanks :P

  • Ehren Rivers

    Sadly no, I haven’t heard anything. When they’re put up somewhere though, we’ll bring it to you guys!

  • Storm

    Nothing yet. :(

  • LightningF

    Aw that sucks! Hope it comes out soon, was totally looking forward to it this weekend…

    Btw, I really like your name and how it’s spelt xD it sounds so cool :o

  • Ehren Rivers

    Bahahaha, thank you. :P I hope it comes up soon too, I’m very interested to give it a listen.

  • LightningF

    No problem ^_^ !

  • Stealth

    still not sure how to feel about this game

  • Ksar

    Damn. I guess we’re completely owned.

  • Ehren Rivers

    The Japanese Lightning Returns facebook said the event had concluded, and that people would be able to listen to the new music “soon” so to please look forward to it.

    Hopefully the tracks will pop up sometime in the next few days.

  • LightningF

    The rage running through my veins cannot be tamed… I’m gonna go cry some more xD. Let’s hope they release them soon, cuz I’m dying to hear them!

  • LightningF

    Why don’t we all sing a song while we’re waiting :) *hums blinded by light off key*

    I have stalked novacrystallis every five minutes for 3 days for these songs haha xD
