  1. Hmm, not sure about the music. About halfway through it does have a certain royal atmosphere, but the beginning sounds too much like the rhythm to ‘Blinded By Light’ and from 1:10 it sounds like Hamauzu’s ‘Battle Theme Ex’ (0:41) for Unlimited SaGa.

  2. The music in this trailer is so great, especially when the ship things started flying.
    I would’ve had it on repeat indefinitely if not for the blond guy’s voice though.
