There is something awesome about sitting in a huge concert hall with a thousand or more people who are there for the very same reason. While I was waiting for the Distant Worlds Concert to start here in Baltimore Maryland this evening I was glancing around at the people around me... young and old, some dressed up in suits and gowns, some cosplaying. Then I told my husband 'look at all these people, doesn't matter age or what we do in our lives, we all love this music and the final fantasy games.'
It really is true some of us don't always agree, or like the same games, or play the same way... but the Final Fantasy series in some way has touched people all over the world. If you have a chance to see Distant Worlds, do it! If you have seen it... you know exactly what I mean. There is just something about hearing the music live, seeing the funny and touching scenes they play on the screen. Its wonderful, and I can't wait to go again!
Now before you say... what does this have to do with FFXIV... they made two announcements tonight and had a special surprise.
First, Nobou Uematsu (well SE) allowed them to show the FFXIV trailer they showed at E3 at the concert, and it was amazing on big screen.
Then he said Nobou gave him permission to announce... Nobou Uematsu will be the ONLY person composing the music for FFXIV.
Lastly he said something about the Distant Worlds concert and site have already started on work with FFXIV music for performance purposes and they would announce more soon. (he kinda babbled this part out real quick, because he said he wasn't supposed to talk about it! lol)
I wanted you all to know so im typing this on my cell in the hotel room. Haha. Sorry if the text comes out funky, first time posting from my cell. Have a good evening!
PS: Nobou had a video message and it it he was showing us his car, its a really awesome car, he calls it his transforming car. It was so funny. XD
