Advent Children's Japanese UMD

For fans of the PSP in Japan, good news has come their way from Square Enix. With little word up until recently about the UMD release of its upcoming FFVII movie, Advent Children, Square Enix has finally announced a release date, and it's the same as the DVD; September 14th of this year. It will cost the same as the DVD, but there are no plans on a limited edition version. However, the UMD will include battle themes from the soundtrack to Advent Children.1

Final Fantasy XI: Music from the Other Side of Vana'diel summary

This is an arranged album for Final Fantasy XI that was interestingly performed by 'The Star Onions'; a group comprised of several Square-Enix sound staff. From what I understand, on September 11, 2004, there was a special tribute night for the soon to be released Chains of Promathia expansion pack. The magazine Famitsu sponsored a Square-Enix organised concert in which 6 songs were performed from both prior OSTs; the original soundtrack as well as music from Rise of the Zilart expansion.

If you're like I am and have fun finding out more than you need to, why not try streaming this file in your media player? Disregard the Japanese, it basically says that the program is presented by Famitsu, and asks the audience to patiently wait for the concert to begin. Oh, and skip the first hour and a minute or so because that's when the actual concert starts. If you know some Japanese or just love the sound of it you can watch the rest, there's discussion on the expansion for you.

Given that 6 tracks were performed at the concert, it's a safe bet that they will be on the CD, but specific details have not yet been given.

Having never played FFXI, I can say this performance interested me. Not only for 'fresh blood' in Square-Enix's music talent, but especially because the composers themselves performed.

Square Enix's Drag-on Dragoon 2, the sequel to the abysmal Drakengard, has been released in Japan and is currently blowing away the competition as the #1 title on the charts. 125,000 units were reportedly sold, making it the first hit on the Japanese charts in weeks.1

According to Square Enix, the theme song to Grandia III, entitled "In the Sky", will be sung by female artist "Miz" in what is essentially a re-recording into Japanese.

In addition, a number of voice actors have been confirmed for the upcoming action-RPG: Masaya Matsukaze (Yuuki), Haruka Kinami (Alfina), Takeru Shibaki (Ull), Sayaka Yoshino (Dahna), Ayaka Maeda, Takashi Hagino (Emelious), Shinji Kasahara, Chieko Baishou (Holy Beast), Shingo Katsurayama (Alonso) and Mayumi Wakamura (Miranda).

Grandia III releases August 4th in Japan.

Advent Children package details; length confirmed; Last Order: Final Fantasy VII revealed

New details have surfaced on the release packages for Final Fantasy VII Advent Children, which will be available in standard and Limited Edition releases. The Last Order trademark that Square Enix registered several weeks ago has also been revealed to be a short OVA (Original Video Animation) that will be included in the limited edition. Read on

The humble deities at Square Enix have blessed their equally-deferential following with some new details on upcoming Playstation 2 RPG, Grandia III. It is not surprising to see that in addition to the presence of many aircraft in the game, the player will be able to control one of these flying marvels to move around the map. Not only this, but the use of a on-board telescope provides countless hours of first-person zooming fun! Following in the footsteps of such classic titles as Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy, this is a move sure to seize audiences for the game's August 4th Japanese release.
