Distant Worlds: Celebrating 25 years of Final Fantasy music

This morning a mad rush occured after midnight.

Final Fantasy fans around the world went on a button bashing frenzy to procure one of the golden Distant World tickets. Distant Worlds had only made itself known to me last year when a friend offered me an extra ticket. Back then I was like, yeah why not I like the intro song from FF 10.

Little did i know my mind was to be shaken and bounced ala Blitz ball style, they preformed my FF 10 intro song with an array of songs over all the FF games including 2 and different remixes of the Chocobo theme. The Aerith ensemble made me nostalgic and slightly queasy with all the cheesy sequences and images. Yes folks there were screens with old pix-elated favourite scenes playing throughout.

  1. Is it not an anniversary for the games too? The music is awesome nevertheless though!
