Final Fantasy XI blu-ray to celebrate Vana’diel’s long history

On November 11, Square Enix will release a Blu-ray dedicated to Final Fantasy XI. Now in its 13th year, the MMORPG received its final main scenario update this year. The Blu-ray will both inspire memories of player’s first steps into Vana’diel and also cover their latest adventure.

A portion of Blu-ray will feature all the new music Naoshi Mizuta has created for the latest updates of the game since the release of 2013’s Final Fantasy XI -Seekers of Adoulin- Original Soundtrack, namely the following tracks:

Forever Today (instrumental version)
Worlds Away
Clouds Over Ulbuka
The Price
Forever Today ep ver.
The Serpentine Labyrinth
The Divine
Forever Today
Distant Worlds (instrumental version)
Rhapsodies of Vana’diel ep ver.
The Boundless Black
Isle of the Gods
Wail of the Void
Rhapsodies of Vana’diel

The Blu-ray will additionally feature seven video medleys featuring music from the initial Final Fantasy XI soundtrack scored by Mizuta, Nobuo Uematsu, and Kumi Tanioka. The videos will document the players’ journey from their starting cities (San d’Oria, Bastok, Windurst) through to Jeuno and finally Castle Zvahl. They will feature videos of these locations set to classic themes and, in some cases, environmental sounds. The following medleys are featured:

The Kingdom of San d’Oria, Ronfaure, Environmental Sounds, Batallia Downs
The Republic of Bastok, Gustaberg, Environmental Sounds, Rolanberry Fields
The Federation of Windurst, Sarutabaruta, Environmental Sounds, Sauromugue Champaign
Selbina, Voyager, Buccaneers, Mhaura
Ru’Lude Gardens, The Grand Duchy of Jeuno, Airship
Xarcabard, Castle Zvahl, Awakening
Vana’diel March, Vana’diel March # 2

Music and video samples of the Blu-ray can be checked out at the official website. Retailing at some 5400 JPY, the album can be pre-ordered through CDJapan now.
