Square Enix has uploaded a new official cover on their music YouTube channel. Hiroyuki Nakayama arranged and performed “The Final Battle” from Final Fantasy IV, initially composed by Nobuo Uematsu. Additionally, Junichiro”ojjy”Ojima recorded and mixed the performance.
While not one of the particularly memorable final boss themes, this is still a notable track that radiates ominously, with this piano cover by Nakayama giving the song an unconventionally somber yet more grave tone. On a personal note, since Final Fantasy IV was my first entry in the franchise, I have a fondness for this track regardless, so this arrangement hit a good dose of nostalgia.
