According to a recent news issue from Famitsu, Square Enix has announced that the Final Fantasy XI Original Soundtrack (OST) -PLUS- has an official Japanese release date of November 19, 2011. The FFXI OST -PLUS- will be available for purchase at a price of 3000 yen, which includes two fully-loaded CDs.
The first CD will feature twelve tracks from Wings of the Goddess, A Crystalline Prophecy, A Shantotto Ascension, A Moogle Coup D’Etat, the Abyssea series, and more! The second CD looks like it will have bonus tracks on it, but PlayOnline has not yet revealed what songs will actually make it to the list. I’ll update you all on that when I find out!
The FFXI OST -PLUS- does not have a North American release date currently set. However, all of the past OST CDs for FFXI were made available through iTunes, which means that we could very well expect to see the same thing happen for the -PLUS- version.
Naoshi Mizuta is the composer for the new FFXI OST -PLUS- collection. Below is a screenshot of the Soundtrack cover, as well as a list of the twelve tracks (in no particular order) that will appear on the first CD.
- Summers Lost
- Goddess Divine
- Everlasting Bonds
- An Ode to Heroes Fallen
- Wings of Dawn
- Echoes of Creation
- Main Theme – FINAL FANTASY XI Version
- Luck of the Mog
- Feast of the Ladies
- Abyssea – Scarlet Skies, Shadowed Plains
- Melodies Errant
On a more exciting note, with the purchase of every FFXI OST -PLUS-, fans will receive a limited edition code which activates a “Spinel” that can be used to decorate their Mog House in the game. For every time you re-enter the Mog House, the spinel will end up playing a different song.
You can view a snapshot of what the Spinel looks like below:
