Final Fantasy game soundtracks finally arrive on streaming services

Developer Square Enix has just dropped the compelling soundtracks of every main Final Fantasy game, without telling a soul.

Almost every soundtrack has become available on music streaming services such as Apple Music and Spotify. 

The extremely popular Japanese RPG series had over 14 million registered players for its Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn as of mid-2018.

Twitter user RickyWinsKO reportedly noticed the release of the extensive collection on June 6th, despite no formal announcement from Square Enix about the overwhelmingly large distribution.

The release is likely to be connected to the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Symphonic Reunion concert in Los Angeles on June 9th.

The Final Fantasy soundtracks will feature albums such as Nobuo Uematsu’s beloved scores for Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII along with Masashi Hamauzu’s music for Final Fantasy XIII, and the most recent soundtrack by Yoko Shimomura for Final Fantasy XV. 

British indie rock band Florence and the Machine, best known for Dog Days Are Over and Shake It Out, will also be featured on the soundtracks via their cover of Ben E. King’s Stand By Me produced specifically for Final Fantasy XV.
