Review [6.May.2010]

A new edition of the forthcoming Final Fantasy XIII has been detailed in a press release from Square Enix. It’s going to cost £59.99 and will contain a soundtrack CD by Masashi Hamauzu, a hardcover art book and weirdly, a fake tattoo transfer of the game’s logo.

It’s a bit of a shame that the music isn’t series staple Nobuo Uematsu this time round—the Final Fantasy piano collections by him are excellent. Hopefully, we can expect a similar level of quality from the CD this time. Take a listen to the battle theme and tell us what you think. Is it worth the extra £20?
