Keiichi Okabe, composer for NieR: Automata, will produce two new tracks for Final Fantasy XV’s Episode Gladiolus DLC, Square Enix has revealed during a special PAX East 2017 panel.
Specifically, Okabe will work on the episode’s theme song titled “Shield of the King” and an arrangement piece of “Battle on the Bridge”, a track infamously known as the theme music for recurring Final Fantasy character Gilgamesh.
In the announcement video below, Okabe touches on his process in composing the two tracks including how he approached to integrate the music style of NieR into the setting of Final Fantasy XV.
