Final Fantasy XIII Gets a Massive Soundtrack
Limited edition to include drama CD retelling events of the Promise prologue.
Were you under the impression that your wallet was safe after Final Fantasy XIII's December 17 release. Well you were mistaken. One month later, you're going to have to deal with this:
This is our first glimpse at the Final Fantasy XIII Original Soundtrack. A retailer shared first details today on the box set, which is due for release on January 27.
The soundtrack ships on four discs. In addition to all the in-game music, the set will include Sayuri Sugawara's two theme songs, Kimi ga Iru Kara and Eternal Love.
The above image is actually from the limited edition version of the soundtrack. On top of the four music discs, the limited edition adds a bonus drama CD featuring a retelling of the Encounter volume of the Final Fantasy XIII Episode Zero Promise web novel that's currently being distributed at the FFXIII official site. The drama CD uses the same voice staff as the game.
Also included with the limited edition is a special box case, a special sleeve, and a 32 page visual book that's also -- you guessed it -- special.
Look for the FFXIII soundtrack on January 27. Pricing is set at ¥3,990 for the standard version and ¥5,250 for the limited edition.
The retail listing makes mention of some sort of "Final Fantasy XIII Original Soundtrack 2009 Winter Campaign." A ticket for participating in this will be included with the soundtrack. We'll presumably learn details once Square Enix formally announces the soundtrack.
