FINAL FANTASY VII Dance Album Hits Digital and CD


Materia Collective is pleased to present ONE BEAT ANGEL FFVII, a fist-pumping electronic dance album by RoboRob. Following up 2019's Billboard-charting album, KINGDOM HEARTBEATS, RoboRob tackles eleven fan-favorite themes from FINAL FANTASY VII ahead of the release of the highly-anticipated FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE due out next week. ONE BEAT ANGEL FFVII is licensed and available digitally and in limited edition CD formats:


The track list for ONE BEAT ANGEL FFVII is as follows:

01. Prelude
02. Fight On!
03. Victory Fanfare
04. Mako Reactor
05. Who Are You (VIP)
06. One-Winged Angel
07. Aerith's Theme
08. Chocobo Theme
09. On That Day 5 Years Ago
10. Cosmo Canyon

"Nobuo Uematsu's epic score from FINAL FANTASY VII has always been a constant source of inspiration in my life, as I'm sure it is with many others," notes arranger RoboRob. "Some of my biggest and more unique ideas came to life with this remix project. Dirty hard bass house, a more complex approach to sound design, and a re-imagining of moving accompaniments to compliment nostalgic melodies. I had the amazing opportunity to collaborate with several accomplished and skilled producers for ONE BEAT ANGEL FFVII and the amount of variety and talent they brought to the table is second to none. I'm excited to share our renditions of this classic and inspiring video game music soundtrack."

Square-Enix releasing a series of Final Fantasy mugs

I'll drink to that!

Final Fantasy VII's remake may be the talk of the town with Final Fantasy fans lately, but there's still plenty of other things to celebrate. Take this series of Final Fantasy stacking mugs, for example! The Square-Enix online store is selling Chocobo, Cactuar, and Moogle options, each priced at $14 a pop.

Square-Enix is also selling a Chocobo Farm mug as well, which features a sleeping Chocobo on the handle. This isn't part of the stacking series, as the Chocobo blocks it from being stacked with the others. This mug is quite a bit pricier, coming in at $32.

If you want to grab any of these mugs, you can find all the above options at this link.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition gets an Aussie rating

Can we have a release date, please?

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition was originally supposed to be out by now, but was delayed to an unspecified date in Summer 2020. While we wait for confirmation on a new date, at least we can see things are moving along on the game.

An Aussie classification for Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition has just popped up, which hopefully means new details are coming soon. The game has garnered a PG rating, which it was given for mild fantasy themes and violence.

Polish game retailer lists Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition with an Aug. 28th, 2020 release date

Is the band getting back together this Summer?

Square-Enix originally planned to have Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition out for the Switch last year, but the game ended up getting delay to some unknown date in 2020. While Square-Enix is yet to share that date, one Polish retailer has just updated their listing with some info.

While not confirmed until Square-Enix themselves announces it, Polish retailer Ultimate shows Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition as launching on Aug. 28th, 2020. I think many were hoping the game would be earlier in the year, so in this case, let's hope the listing is incorrect.

Thanks to Sephiroth_FF for the heads up!
