Apple Music Gains Soundtracks for Every Main Entry in the Final Fantasy Series

Square Enix recently made the soundtracks to every main Final Fantasy game available to listen on Apple Music and Spotify (via TechCrunch). The release of the soundtracks on streaming services is being timed with a special concert for Final Fantasy VII that's taking place this week in Hollywood.

To find the music, head to Apple Music and search for "Final Fantasy original soundtrack." In the results for albums you can tap "See All" to discover soundtracks for original games in the series like Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II, and even modern entries like Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XV.

As pointed out by TechCrunch, there are some missing entries, including soundtracks for Final Fantasy X-2, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, and Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift. Otherwise, every mainline entry in the franchise now has its soundtrack ready for streaming on Apple Music, from Final Fantasy I to Final Fantasy XV.

‘Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition’ Now Up for Pre-Order on iOS App Store Ahead of February 9 Launch

A new card on the iOS App Store today confirms that Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition will launch on compatible iOS devices on February 9, a few months after being announced last September. Players interested in the game can use the App Store's new pre-order ability and tap "Get," and when the game releases it will download onto their device and notify them that the game is available.

Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition is an episodic game, with Chapter 1 up for pre-order today for free. Chapters 2-3 will be available for in-app purchases of $0.99 each, and Chapters 4-10 will cost $3.99 each. There will also be a combined bundle of all chapters to download for $19.99 (via TouchArcade).

In terms of gameplay, the game is a mobile-friendly version of the mainline Final Fantasy XV game, which launched on PS4 and Xbox One in the fall of 2016. To fit on iPhone and iPad, Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition includes tap controls to move, talk, and fight, as well as a more stylized, "cartoonlike" art style.

During PAX West in Seattle, TouchArcade spent about 20 minutes playing the mobile game, and described it as "surprisingly one to one with the 'full' console version of the game."
The game is everything we'd hoped it would be, and the first playable episode seems surprisingly one to one with the "full" console version of the game. All of the dialog is there, the quests seem the same, the level-up system feels identical, and overall it looks as if they're delivering on the promise of having a full-featured version of Final Fantasy XV for mobile. Details are still few and far between regarding when it'll specifically be released, but, it's going to be a premium episodic game with the first taste that we played given away for free.
Just like the console version, the iOS game follows the story of Prince Noctis and his friends Gladiolus, Ignis, and Prompto as they face enemies and danger en route to Noctis's wedding to Lady Lunafreya. Although the graphics and combat system in the iPhone game are pared down in comparison to the console title, Square Enix said that Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition "contains all of the main characters and main story of the console and PC versions, with the freedom to play whenever and wherever you want."

Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition will run on iOS devices with iOS 11.1 or later, including iPhone 6s or later, iPad Pro, 5th generation iPad or later, iPad Air 2 or later, and iPad mini 4 or later. The game will also take around 5GB of space or more on each device.
