So it’s come to this: a Final Fantasy Mystic Quest cover album. Mystic Quest (called Mystic Quest Legend in Europe) is a vastly simplfied, toned-down RPG that most Square fans dismiss. So while there have been scores of remastered covers for Final Fantasy soundtracks, Mystic Quest has been mostly ignored. Until today.
Today is the day the Final Fantasy Mystic Quest Remastered Soundtrack becomes available — and unlike the game, it’s not that bad. The album was created by music arranger Sean Schafianski. “The soundtrack to Final Fantasy Mystic Quest is a cult classic,” he says. “The blend of rock, jazz, and delightfully cheesy synths was probably the best part of the game!”
“As with the rest of the Remastered Tracks series, I wanted to stay as true to the original as possible, while still adding in some flair for a modern twist. Performers sometimes took the liberty of a solo here and there, but for the most part, this is the same soundtrack that we all fell in love with. I hope you enjoy this album as much as I did making it!”
Now, thanks to Schafianski, the Final Fantasy Mystic Quest Remastered Soundtrack is available for your listening pleasure on iTunes, Bandcamp and Spotify. Look for it at any of those locations starting today, or check below for a preview…
