Square Enix is preparing to unload the next batch of information about Final Fantasy XIV’s expansion Shadowbringers at Tokyo Fanfest this weekend, and an interesting detail has just surfaced.
Today singer Susan Calloway shared on her personal Facebook account that she will perform at the event with a heartfelt message.
“I’ve been packing and rehearsing non stop the past few days… another plane ride tomorrow – to Tokyo this time to perform for ffxivfanfest2019 I can’t wait !! I’ve been quiet on social media lately. I think sometimes it’s good to be quiet. This world is noisy, isn’t it? So much for our ears, eyes, hearts, and souls to sift thru and decide what is valuable… and what seriously isn’t.
I hope as an artist I always bring you guys music and inspiration that helps you. I want to do something different this year- something that will matter even more. And I want you all to be a part of it.
Our world is in quite a mess right now, and alone we can feel pretty powerless to really do anything to help. But together? We just might have a chance to change some things. “Look to those who walk before, to lead those who walk after”… that’s you and me. Thank you for the love, support and purpose you guys give me. I’m so blessed for each of you”
Considering that Calloway lent her angelic voice to the original Final Fantasy XIV theme song “Answers” and to those for both the Heavensward and Stormblood expansions “Dragonsong” and “Revolutions,” it stands to reason to expect that she will perform the song for the upcoming expansion Shadownbringers as well.
It’s also quite likely that the theme song might be formally revealed at Tokyo Fanfest during the keynote, which will happen on March 22 at 6:30 PM PDT.
The official schedule of the event does include a piano concert, so it’s also possible that Calloway might be flying to Tokyo in order to perform during that, but I would be surprised if we didn’t get to hear the new song, and if didn’t feature Susan Calloway’s voice.
Of course, we’ll have to wait and see. In the meanwhile, if you want to know more about Final Fantasy XIV and its upcoming expansion Shadowbringers, you can check out the official trailer and Gunbreaker job, and the reveal of the new areas, the Viera race, the YorHa raid, and more, some official screenshots and art pieces released after the keynote, and some fantastic new artwork.
If you want to get ready before its release, Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood is currently available for PS4 and PC, and a few more updates are coming, including a Final Fantasy XV crossover, and more story content.
Shadowbringers will officially launch on July 2 for PS4 and PC.
