THEATRHYTHM Final Fantasy Screenshot 7

Square Enix has quietly released Theatrhythm Final Fantasy albums onto the iTunes store today. Yes, albums. They released four albums for the game.

The game has three styles of play: Field, Event, and Battle. Three of the albums are named after the three style that the songs originate. So the Theatrhythm Final Fantasy FMS, or Field, will contain all the music that uses that style in the game like “Blue Fields” from Final Fantasy VIII and “Giza Plains” from FF12. The fourth album is named after the Chaos Shrine mode from the game. That mode contains all the other music they didn’t use in the main mode but is just as memorable as the ones found there. Some notable examples here include the catchy “Mambo de Chocobo” (FF5 version) and “Blinded By Light,” better known as the battle music from FF13.

It’s worth noting though that the album name is a bit of a misnomer. Theatrhythm Final Fantasy replaced some of the older music from FF2 and older with its own faithful renditions. These albums instead include the original tracks and not the renditions, which by the way has been available on iTunes before the Theatrhythm even came out. In fact, all of the tracks on these four albums have been available on iTunes for quite some time now.

Despite this, these albums do have a couple of good points. FF13 tracks go for $1.29 a piece, but the four FF13 tracks found in the four Theatrhytm albums are only $0.69. Moreover, “Dancing Mad,” the epic, 17 minute long music for the final boss of FF6, is an album only track for the Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Chaos Shrine album just as it was when it showed up in the original FF6 soundtrack. The FF6 soundtrack goes for $17.99, but Chaos Shrine is only $9.99.

Karli Winata is an avid gamer with a taste for a little bit of everything. Except for sports games. And racing sims. And definitely not hidden object games! I guess everything is too broad a term. Suffice it to say that he has been known to play hours of Call of Duty multiplayer in between bouts of Persona fusing and Star Coin collecting while saving the world/galaxy through sensibly bald space marines or plucky teenagers with impossible hairstyles. Where does he find the time to write about them?
