SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs - 500th Entry Edition

Welcome to a very special edition of SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs. It's the 500th entry of SuperPhillip Central! With that, we're taking a listen to music from the Final Fantasy series. Here's to 500 more!

v391. Final Fantasy - Cornelia Castle

We're starting off a new series now. We've gone through Mario, Sonic, Zelda, Mega Man, Donkey Kong, Katamari, and now we're headed for Final Fantasy. Let's start with the very first with the original Final Fantasy. This is the Origins version of Cornelia Castle.

v392. Final Fantasy II - Symphonic Suite - Scene VII

This theme comes from Final Fantasy II, but it's the Final Fantasy Symphonic Suite edition of the piece. It's very haunting and heroic with its choir, sharp brass, and low strings, don't you think?

v393. Final Fantasy III -

The final battle theme of Final Fantasy III, KURAYAMINOKUMO, is our next edition to my favorites. This version is performed by Nobuo Uematsu's band, The Black Mages. Rock out as you attempt to save the world!

v394. Final Fantasy IV - Fight 2

As the title suggests, these themes come from Final Fantasy IV. This time I'm playing the original SNES version, and since the track is so short, I've included the latest DS rendition for your listening pleasure. Along with Final Fantasy VI's boss theme, Final Fantasy IV's is my favorite. You can also hear it in Super Mario RPG for the game's secret boss.

v395. Final Fantasy V - Ahead on our Way

The Final Fantasy V Dear Friends soundtrack was an arranged album of Final Fantasy V tunes. This is the very first song on the soundtrack, Ahead on our Way, the main theme of Final Fantasy V.
