Final Fantasy XVI Shares Live Performance of “To Sail Forbidden Seas”

Square Enix has uploaded the live performance of “To Sail Forbidden Seas” from Final Fantasy XVI, which was performed by the LA Phil at the Hollywood Bowl to celebrate the tenth anniversary of The Game Awards.

This is one of my favorite tracks in the game and the franchise in general, so seeing a solo upload of it is pretty exciting. I’ll probably be leaving this on repeat a few hundred times.

Final Fantasy XVI is a more action-heavy entry than its predecessors, with a Devil May Cry V designer even taking the helm. Throughout the title, players will control the protagonist, Clive, as he confronts various Dominants, humans who have been cursed with the power to become Eikons.

Clive is the “First Shield of Rosaria,” sworn to protect his younger brother Joshua, who’s the Dominant of Phoenix. However, following a certain tragedy, Clive swears revenge on the Dark Eikon Ifrit.

The producer, Naoki Yoshida, describes this game as akin to his experience with the first Final Fantasy, as “playing the lead in an epic motion picture.” The reasoning for this title’s action-oriented approach and more classical fantasy setting was to “appeal to as wide a range of gamers as possible.”
