The long-running Final Fantasy series is as well known for its music as it is for its gameplay, and the reverence many have for the series’ music has allowed Square Enix to hold many concerts around the world which they have referred to as ‘Distant Worlds’. These often take place in packed concert halls where a full orchestra will play beloved tracks from a variety of mainline Final Fantasy titles.
With the series having celebrated its 30th-anniversary last year, PlayStation Plus subscribers in Japan are being treated to a limited-time-only mouthful of a free application named ‘PMN Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy Jiritsu PS Plus Edition’. This application, which will be free for members between December 5 and February 28, will allow people to listen to music from the Distant Worlds 30th-anniversary concert held at Tokyo International Forum Hall A on December 10, 2017, in an uncompressed format, with matching gameplay videos being shown as the music plays. Alongside this app, on the same date, subscribers will also be able to download a Final Fantasy Distant Worlds PS4 theme for their console.
There are some caveats to this, however. While the application is available to download and keep for PlayStation Plus members between the aforementioned dates, it will only work up until March 31, 2019, after which you will no longer be able to use it. Not only that, you won’t be able to subscribe to the PlayStation Plus service tomorrow and gain access to this application on the launch date. In order to download this app, people must have been subscribed to the service for at least 2 months before they will have access. Luckily, subscribing now will at least mean you can download this app before the availability period ends.
The complete song list takes music from the earlier games in the series like Final Fantasy IV all the way to the most recent release in Final Fantasy XV. To view the full song list, you’ll want to make your way over to PlayStation Japan’s official website.
