Up until now, the composer for Bravely Default: Flying Fairy had yet to be revealed — all we knew is that the composer would be a relative unknown, someone unfamiliar to Final Fantasy fans. Today Square Enix revealed the game’s soundtrack, which will be composed by Revo from Sound Horizon. His compositions will extend beyond the game’s soundtrack, including arrangements based on the game’s music and a concert this November in Japan.
Sound Horizon consists of Revo’s compositions and arrangements, with an amalgamation of artists collaborating for different projects. Some familiar vocalists who’ve done songs previously in Final Fantasy games have been members, such as RIKKI (“Suteki Da Ne” from Final Fantasy X) and Joelle (“Plains of Eternity” from Final Fantasy XIII-2). A self-described “fantasy band”, Sound Horizon creates music that one would expect from a fantasy epic.
A single, seen below, will pre-date the game on August 22nd and include a redeemable code that will get you a special piece of equipment in game. The official soundtrack was revealed as well, which includes a fold-out stand of all four protagonists designed by Akihiko Yoshida. It will release the same day as the game does, though a solid date has yet to be determined.
