The Singapore concert follows the recent screening of the “Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV” movie in Singapore. The highly anticipated worldwide release of FINAL FANTASY XV, the role-playing video game 10 years in the making, is also slated to be released in 2016. Music plays an integral role in today’s games, enhancing the players’ overall experience. While still a growing market, video game soundtracks are sold in major outlets and include a variety of genres such as rock, hip-hop, electronica, classical compositions, and songs performed by popular artists. The FINAL FANTASY soundtracks, which are original compositions, have grown so popular that TIME magazine named series composer Nobuo Uematsu a notable “Innovator” in its “Time 100: the Next Wave Music” feature.
