At some level I reached an age where individuals extra profitable and gifted than me began being youthful than me too. It was all effectively and good once I was 20 years previous and virtually everybody youthful than me was principally a baby, however now the lead actors of phenomenally profitable TV reveals do not even bear in mind the credit score crunch. And now I’ve to return to phrases with the truth that Yoyoka, the drummer on these hardcore Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster tracks, was round 11 years previous when she carried out them.

Yoyoka, whose full title is Yoyoka Soma, is a drumming prodigy from Ishikari, Japan, who you may already know from 4 years in the past, when she went viral for crushing a efficiency of Led Zeppelin’s Good Times Bad Times. When she was, oh no, 8 years previous

It seems that efficiency (amongst many others you could find on her YouTube channel) caught the eye of the devs at Square Enix, as a result of the corporate introduced her on in the course of the game’s growth to contribute to 18 tracks throughout the remasters of Final Fantasy 1, 3, 4, 5, and 6.

Yoyoka posted about her involvement within the FF remasters some time in the past, however it solely got here to my consideration after an enterprising Resetera consumer dug up her video showcasing the tracks she contributed to. It’s just a little bit shocking that Square Enix did not make extra noise about hiring a memetic youngster prodigy to pep up its soundtracks for the remasters. I suppose that is a testomony to her expertise: she was enlisted for her talents, slightly than to gild a advertising and marketing marketing campaign.

The remasters of the primary six Final Fantasy video games have, for probably the most half, gone down fairly effectively, even when they do make a number of of the identical stumbles that earlier, ill-fated touch-up makes an attempt have made. Most of the complaints I’ve learn have pertained to the fonts, although; I’m fairly positive the music has been a stable hit.

In different FF information, Final Fantasy 16 is shaping as much as be a medieval-themed political drama where you play the bodyguard of a prince named Joshua. The game’s first trailer talked about a PC model, however since then Square Enix have been laser-focused on solely discussing the game as a “PS5 exclusive”. We’ll in all probability get it will definitely, however we is perhaps ready some time: Final Fantasy 15 took two years to land on our shores after it got here to console. In the meantime, why not wax nostalgic in regards to the hairstyles of FF previous?
