E3 2010: Squaresoft Sounds Coming From Square Enix’s Booth

We couldn’t help but spend a lot of time over at Square Enix’s booth at E3 this week. We saw everything from Final Fantasy XIV to Front Mission Evolved to Deus Ex, and there was infinitely more to see and hear in their 20+ minute E3 presentation that was on a continuous loop throughout the entire event. While we were waiting around for various appointments and games, I more than once turned my head to a familiar sound from Square Enix’s past.

While some of these titles were announced well in advance of E3, some of them were completely new and not really publicized. Find out what we heard after the jump.

The first thing that caught my attention was an unaltered version of Hiroki Kikuta’s “Angel’s Fear” from Seiken Densetsu 2. I wasn’t in an area of the booth that I could see the video feed, but even the Square Enix staff around me seemed surprised that the game was on display. It’s coming to mobile platforms soon, which should be a blast to play on the go.

Another familiar sound came from the closed Final Fantasy XIV demo area. I have refrained from listening to the soundtrack leak that we posted about some months ago, so when I heard the “Final Fantasy” theme coming from the booth I couldn’t stop the goosebumps. I guess I miss the theme after it being completely absent from Final Fantasy XIII.

The final familiar sound was from Final Fantasy Tactics. It’s been more publicized that Tactics is also going mobile, which should give fans another chance to hear some of Hitoshi Sakimoto and Masaharu Iwata’s best work.

Which of these titles are you looking forward to the most? If you pick these games up on your mobile phones, will you even be listening to the music while you play?
