Shimomura Yoko is one of the greatest composers alive/ever will live. Hyperbole? PFFFT. She’s created music for Legend of Mana, Kingdom Hearts, and is currently finishing up the soundtracks for both Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV. Here are some of my favorite tunes of hers as an appetizer–I intend to write a “composer spotlight” for her in the very near future!
Check out the latest trailer for Final Fantasy XV, which shows off the game’s visuals, and attempts to make it seem like less of a sausage-fest. I’m cautiously optimistic for this game, if only because after XIII, there’s really only one place to go, and that’s up.
Music for the trailer (and the game itself) is being crafted by the brilliant Shimomura Yoko, composer for the Kingdom Hearts and Xenoblade franchises.
