The FINAL FANTASY series has seen a great many arrangements made from the music over the years.
But there are many passionate fans out there who prefer to listen to the original versions of the songs in all their 8-bit glory.
As a composer, there is no greater joy for me than to hear that.
And so, it has been 35 years since the birth of FINAL FANTASY.
With such advancement in the auditory potential of modern game consoles,
we couldn't consign ourselves to labeling the soundtrack as "retro" and leaving it as-is.
The Pixel Remaster has a timeless take on the songs that rejuvenates the original sound without destroying what made it unique.
Both versions are sweet music to my ears.
