Final Fantasy VII remix album Materia is bigger than the original soundtrack


Featuring Dale North and other people

Check out that preview below. Longtime Destructoid fans might find it familiar for a couple reasons. For one, Final Fantasy VII‘s main theme is one of the most recognizable pieces from the old role-playing game. It played in the overworld, where I personally spent a lot of time running around looking for fights. For two, the melody is delivered through the unmistakable mellifluous voice of our old pal Dale North. It was sad to see him go, but if it means he’s producing more music like this, it’s not all bad.

He’s not the only one on Materia: Final Fantasy VII Remixed. In fact, the track list is pretty staggering. The official soundtrack came on four discs; this has enough music to span five. Joining Dale North are others like John Robert Matz (Gunpoint), Jeff Ball (Tiny Barbarian) and more. It’s sounding pretty good from the snippets we have, and it’s selling for $15, which isn’t too bad either.
