The official Japanese Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Twitter account made a big announcement this morning by revealing Lightning Returns won’t be getting a promotional theme song unlike the earlier releases of Final Fantasy XIII series. However, the game will be getting a very own ending theme(s) composed by all three composers.
The earlier theme songs have been sung by various artists such as Leona Lewis (My Hands), Charice (New World), Fukui Mai (Yakusoku no Basho) and Sayuri Sugawara (Kimi Ga Iru Kara). Other artist have also performed on the soundtrack, for example, Mina from Imeruat, Joelle, Kokia, Frances Maya and Shootie HG.
What do you think about this decision? Shocked? Happy? Could the ending theme be more personal now since it’s 100% composed for the game and not bought for the extra promo? If the theme song did happen, who should have sung it?
Post your thoughts on the comments while listening to KIMI GA IRU KARA!
