Square Enix Shares Piano Cover of Final Fantasy X Battle Theme

Square Enix has uploaded a new official cover on their music YouTube channel. Yui Morishita arranged and performed the battle theme of Final Fantasy X, initially composed by Nobuo Uematsu. Additionally, Junichiro”ojjy”Ojima recorded and mixed the performance.

Final Fantasy X is one of the most beloved entries in the franchise, with its soundtrack being one of the highlights. And this arrangement instills a renewed tension not present in the original battle theme. It’s a pretty memorable track that players hear quite often, so hearing a new take on it is always refreshing, no matter how addictive the original is.

The Final Fantasy X series has sold over 20.8 million units worldwide.

You can listen to the piano cover of the Final Fantasy X battle theme by Yui Morishita below:

Final Fantasy X was the first PlayStation 2 entry for the franchise. It featured full voice acting, countless side activities, a content-filled postgame, and much more. An updated release, dubbed the International version, would remain Japanese-exclusive until localized ports later arrived.

In the first title, the protagonist Tidus is whisked away from the nightlife world of Zanarkand to a more rustic setting known as Spira. He ends up having to discover the truth of the connection between Zanarkand and Spira, as well as his own place in it all. Final Fantasy X-2 is a bold sequel taking place after the first game’s events, offering what is arguably one of the best JRPG combat systems ever made.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is currently available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
