Yoko Shimomura and Video Game Orchestra feature in Final Fantasy XV trailer
Today, Square Enix unveiled a new trailer for Final Fantasy XV in preparation for the Tokyo Game Show 2014. Giving a hint of the music we can expect from the game, the trailer features romantic orchestral music with a special focus on piano and strings, including some nods to the series’ “Prelude”.
Shota Nakama has confirmed that the music for the trailer was written by Yoko Shimomura and performed by the Video Game Orchestra, with Livan Chevalier serving as the solo pianist. This year, Nakama formed SoundtRec Boston to further pursue video game recordings, after landing gigs on Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix.
