On Thursday 8th September the world famous Abbey Road Studios in London will play host to a special one-off concert featuring music from the forthcoming videogame Final Fantasy XV.

The one-hour concert will be broadcast from Abbey Road's iconic Studio One, and will feature live renditions of a selection of songs from the Final Fantasy XV soundtrack performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, with a special appearance from world-renowned composer, Yoko Shimomura.

“With so many iconic recordings taking place here over the years, performing the music for Final Fantasy XV in the very same recording studio is a huge honour for me and for everyone involved,” said Composer, Yoko Shimomura speaking about the event.  “I am excited to be able to collaborate with Abbey Road Studios for this performance and to share the music of Final Fantasy XV with everyone. I hope that music and videogame fans around the world can tune-in and join me for this incredible experience

The show will begin at 4am AEST / 6am NZST on Thursday 8th September and will be live streamed.


Last week, NetGuide took an exclusive look at a four-hour preview build of Final Fantasy XV at Square Enix's Sydney HQ. Whilst the game starts with a similar open-world setting as that of the FFXV Episode Dusae demo, the preview build had a lot more polish, making the gameplay, especially the combat that much slicker.

On 29th November, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players will get to join Crown Prince Noctis and his comrades on an epic journey of brotherhood, love and despair as they unravel Noctis's destiny and take up arms against the warmongering empire, Niflheim.

Final Fantasy XV is looking like a return to form for the veteran RPG series and one to watch out for later this year.
