Video Game Orchestra to perform FFXV at Tokyo concert

On March 25, the Video Game Orchestra will celebrate the music of Japanese video games with a special concert at the Hitomi Memorial Hall, Tokyo, Japan. The concert will combine orchestral, choral, and rock band performances of fan favourite franchises with exclusive overhead video montages and state-of-the-art lighting.

At the concert, the band will perform music from several productions that they have previously been involved with, including Final Fantasy XVGod Eater 2, and Tales of Zestiria. They’ll also celebrate the music of the Sonic, Castlevania, Metal Gear, and Silent Hill along with recent hits D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die and Rayark.

On announcing the concert, concert producer Shota Nakama said: “What’s unique about the show is that the companies are uniting, which is what I always wanted to do. I am really hoping to continue doing that with more companies so we can all collaborate and make something great happen. A success for this concert means a brighter future for a lot of fellow video game concert acts too.”

Created by the Boston-based Japanese producer Shota Nakama, the VGO is a rock symphony project that performs new arrangements of popular video game music. While initially launched as a hobby project, it has quickly evolved into a top act that has enjoyed international success.
