Today Square Enix released a trailer for a rather special item dedicated to those who love the gorgeous soundtrack of Final Fantasy XIV.
The box includes four vinyl disks one dedicated to the original Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and the other three dedicated to the expansions, Heavensward, Stormblood, and Shadowbringers.
Each vinyl comes with a beautiful illustration by Kuroimori and a code for the download of the same music in MP3 format. They’re all available separately for $29.99/€28.99 each.
“The vinyl cutting was done in Los Angeles by mastering virtuoso, Bernie Grundman! Bernie Grundman is an audio mastering engineer who started his career at Contemporary Records in 1966, then continued on to A&M Records as head of their mastering department in 1968, earning his reputation working on albums with artists including Carole King, Michael Jackson, Steely Dan, and more. He has also been nominated for various Grammy awards and has won many prestigious awards.”
You can check out the trailer and the beautiful illustrations in higher resolution below.
Incidentally, the new Final Fantasy XIV expansion Endwalker will release on November 23, 2021 for PS5, PS4, and PC.
If you want to see more about it, you can check out the reveal of the extended trailer and the reaper job, and that of the male viera, locations, and release date. You can also take a look at plenty of brand-new official screenshots and art.
A major update will also be released on May 25, getting players ready for the story that will be told in Endwalker.
If you’re unfamiliar with Final Fantasy XIV, it’s currently available for PlayStation 4, PS5, and PC. The upgrade to PS5 is offered free of charge to those who own the PS4 version.
