Square Enix Shares Official Guitar Cover of “Force Your Way” from Final Fantasy VIII

Square Enix has uploaded a new official cover on their music YouTube channel. Seiji Igusa arranges and performs “Force Your Way” from Final Fantasy VIII on guitar, initially composed by Nobuo Uematsu. Additionally, Yohei “Billy” Horiuchi recorded and mixed it.

This is arguably one of the most overlooked main battle themes across the Final Fantasy franchise, so it’s neat to see it represented here, especially with a unique ambiance due to the choice of instrument.

Square Enix shared an official piano arrangement of “The Man with the Machine Gun” from Final Fantasy VIII last year.

From then on, the cast embarks on an epic quest to save the world.
