All of the Final Fantasy Victory Fanfare Themes

All of the Final Fantasy Victory Fanfare Themes

by Steve Napierski to Videos

I like how Final Fantasy X-2‘s theme sounds nothing like any of the prior Final Fantasy themes. It’s like X-2 is saying, “We know how to make a Final Fantasy game.” And then Final Fantasy XII shows up, with what I feel is arguably the best of the themes, and says, “No you don’t.”

I also find it fun that the Final Fantasy titles at deviated the most from the original theme (Final Fantasy X-2, XIII and XIII-2) are the ones generally panned. Coincidence? Nope, because they were all directed by Motomu Toriyama.

Any one else excited about Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII? Motomu Toriyama is directing that one too.

    That was fun – I liked reminiscing back through the versions of Final Fantasy, that I haven’t played in years. I just wish the video did something to identify which song was being played, as I got confused into the later ones that I’m not as familiar with it.

    It does seem like listening to the victory songs doesn’t really give enough for the overall impression of each game.
