Big Surprises on Square Enix’s Tokyo Game Show Sampler CD

It’s actually kind of strange that Square Enix is forgoing making announcements about some of their upcoming albums by sneaking them onto this sampler CD without much fanfare. As it turns out, the sampler CD will feature tracks from Final Fantasy XIII-2, the newly announced (and incredibly beautiful) Bravely Default, Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy (essentially confirming that a soundtrack release is in the works), and Final Fantasy XI -PLUS-.

In terms of arrangement albums, there’s a track from Cafe SQ and Re:Birth / Seiken Densetsu, but most interestingly tracks from Piano Collections I – II – III (it’s actually happening, and I’m throwing credit Patrick’s way for pushing the idea on Izumi Tsukushi and Akio Shiraishi last year) and Elshaddai & The Astrals are featured. It looks like the arrangement album for El Shaddai is not only in the works, but will also be published by Square Enix. The only thing missing is a track from the NieR piano album!

We’re looking forward to getting our hands on the disc, and will have impressions soon, but in the meantime, which releases are you looking forward to the most? Are you surprised that Square Enix allowed these titles to be announced via a sampler CD rather than a more formal method?
