Kingdom Hearts “Hikari,” Final Fantasy VIII “Liberi Fatali” & More Video Game Songs Performed at BBC Proms; Accessible Online

Last week, the BBC Proms hosted a slew of live orchestral video game performances. Several series were represented, including The Legend of Zelda, Secret of Mana, Pokémon, Final Fantasy VIII, Shadow of the Colossus, and Kingdom Hearts.

The array of performances is stellar, with none overly overtaking the other. My favorite performances have to be the orchestral version of “Hikari” from Kingdom Hearts and “Liberi Fatali,” the opening of Final Fantasy VIII.

You can listen to each of these excellent renditions via the official BBC UK website.

In Kingdom Hearts IV, Sora is in Quadratum with Strelitzia, a prominent character from Kingdom Hearts Union χ. This setting is an afterworld for the two characters following their tragic fates. Additionally, this new saga has been titled the Lost Master Arc. Further, some combat footage was showcased, with Sora performing Keyblade transformations against a giant entity that seems to be a Heartless? We don’t know for sure.

“The heart resides within the soul, which in turn is guided by fate to its rightful place” is a crucial phrase used at the start of this trailer for the upcoming mainline game.
