Yoko Shimomura Reveals Final Fantasy XV Bonus Track – Listen to the Preview!

Yesterday, we reported how a new Final Fantasy XV song will be featured on Memória - The Very Best of Yoko Shimomura album. Today, Shimomura herself tweeted: “This is one of the bonus tracks from “Memória”, and it’s from Final Fantasy XV! It won’t be the song that first appeared in the E3 trailer last year but it’s the one used in the gameplay trailer!”

The “new” song “OMNIS LACRIMA” (means “Every Tears/All the tears/Everyone’s tear”) from Final Fantasy XV is actually the one we have heard a bit in the gameplay trailer! However, it’s likely a clearer and perhaps more polished version! So technically it’s a brand new one! Watch the gameplay trailer below to get a preview how the bonus track sounds!

Yoko Shimomura’s Memoria Album Will Have A Final Fantasy XV Bonus Track

Composer Yoko Shimomura, who is the main composer for the upcoming games Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts 3, will release a new album memória! / The Very Best Of Yoko Shimomura on March 26th 2014. 

Thanks to the heads up from aibo, a bonus track list has been recently added to the official website which lists a new Final Fantasy XV track titled OMNIS LACRIMA. (it means “Every Tears/All the tears/Everyone’s tear”)


What do you think, is it one of the tracks that were played during the E3 announcement trailer and gameplay footage? Or is it an entirely new one we haven’t heard before? Nevertheless, we’re excited to hear more official Final Fantasy XV music!

Thanks for the community side giving other options for the translation. :)
