If you thought that Square-Enix were just rebuilding the graphics side of Final Fantasy X HD only, think again. We have a video to show you now which also reveals that the developers are remixing the entire Final Fantasy X soundtrack as well, giving the famous tracks a makeover and a refresh that in our opinion sounds fantastic.
The original Final Fantasy X on the PS2 contained some memorable tracks that are still well known today, such as To Zanarkand – composed by the great Nobuo Uematsu. If you remember some of the soundtrack from the original, you’ll be able to revisit each track in a brand new form as Final Fantasy X HD is going to be remixed completely from the ground up.
The video released by Square-Enix gives you an example of the change from SD to HD, using the soundtrack for the main battle theme to demonstrate how the music differs between the two versions. The difference is very noticeable if you listen carefully and we think it’s great that Square-Enix has gone to such length when they could have easily just used the exact soundtrack from the PS2 version.
If you are someone who appreciates music in video games like me, we think you’ll enjoy this nice little video from Square-Enix. Let’s hope that the other tracks in the game have been given the same treatment – especially To Zanarkand.
What are your thoughts on the changes to the music – are you a big fan or not?
