Final Fantasy XV to feature many piano tracks, says Shimomura By Erren Van Duine on March 26, 2014 at 12:12 PM

Yoko Shimomura can’t say too much about Final Fantasy XV yet, but she hopes fans will enjoy the bonus track Omnis Lacrima – included in her 25th anniversary album, memória!, out in Japan today.

According to a message included in the CD booklet Shimomura notes that Final Fantasy XV will have many piano tracks, which isn’t all that surprising considering her history and past works. She is looking forward to the day when she can openly talk about her entire contribution to the project and not just a track that’s been featured in several promotional videos already.

  • Fábio Henrique Arosti

    She probably suffers from the ban of info more than we do.

  • Starlord

    Just my type of music (Piano/Choir!) It really brings a lot of emotion in games!

  • karasuKumo

    I look at this site after listening to FF Piano Collections for a few hours to see this, what timing! I can’t wait to hear them!

  • OcarinaPlayerOfTime

    This is fantastic, I loved tracks like “To Zanakard” and “The Last Promise”, so I deffinetly can say I love this news

  • Samsara09

    yeah.Hope this year’s E3 puts a definite end on it.

    Why does Yoko have to be so repetitive? Piano tunes can be great but you can’t overdo them. Why can’t they just hire Uematsu or Mitsuda to do at least some songs to at least have some diversity in the soundtrack.

  • Protosin

    I don’t understand. Why can’t she discuss the soundtrack a bit more? Didn’t they say the days of secrecy were over? Can’t they be a little more open about this game? Perhaps they’re not as far into development as we’re hoping…

    I´m dying of happiness reading that FFXV will have many piano tracks *__*

    If there is an instrument I love to hear, it´s the piano x3 Although pieces combining piano and violin are just too great for this world, I think that they´re even more amazing sounding together >..<U

  • Wazi the pa

    Music with piano implemented in it: Goosebumps………
    I’m ready.

  • stevenm281

  • DarmusXIII

  • Billy Jackson

    Much Piano. Wow!

  • I’m glad she is the one who will be composing FFXV. Her songs are gorgeous to hear. My heart beats fast everytime I see the name Final Fantasy XV in the title of a news article, hahaha.

  • MDawg77

    Is it then followed by disappointment at the lack of actual info?

  • Yes! I should have already got used to it after almost 8 years waiting. Hahaha.

  • Samsara09

    that is the hype magic.

  • Samsara09

    Yeah,but then the hype returns with the next news

  • Samsara09

    Actually,the fact they aren’t sharing info could mean they have a really tight deadline….and they can’t waste time making trailers,which could mean we are close to getting it….

    that and/or they have ambitions to make XV the second VII of the series….and to induce that feeling on the fans,they are playing mute.The hype is impressive.
