Square Enix has released a 16-minute trailer for the film Final Fantasy VII Remake Orchestral World Tour, and if you’re a fan of the game’s fantastic soundtrack, I highly recommend watching this video from start to finish. Watching the songs performed by the orchestra live brought a huge smile to my face.
The trailer features three songs: a mixed opening game, including bombastic fanfares calmly it makes me shiver; “Stand Up,” a song used during the Honeybee Inn dance scene; and mixing the classic battle theme, “Let the battles begin!”
Arrangements are performed by more than 100 musicians. If you want to try to catch the show for yourself, you can check out the schedule of upcoming performances on the tour website. Unfortunately, the tour is not currently scheduled to take place anywhere near me; I guess I’ll have to watch this video a hundred more times to try to recreate the experience for myself. Damn it.
