Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY JIRITSU / 而立 Concert KLCC


If there is a chance for you to tell me what your favorite childhood game, what will you tell me? For me, definitely, I will say is Final Fantasy. When I first start to play the game, I started from the Gameboy, after then is Playstation 1. I still remember me and my brother used to fight to play the game.

Let me show you some of the pictures from the game, maybe it might bring back your childhood memories too, haha.


This is the pixel version of the game, the character is so cute right. I remember when the time to fight the boss, I will be so nervous and afraid that I will lose at that time, some even take me a few time to pass the stage.


Slowly when is the Final fantasy come out with a new version of the game, the graphics get much more details and colorful.


I even save up my pocket money just to buy the game. I still remember that time I was so crazy in love with the game, I even play it until midnight until my mum nags me its time to sleep 


After so many years, Final Fantasy has come out so many version of the game and I cant manage to play it all, haha.

As a Final Fantasy fan, I always love their music when I play the game, the music just blends so well with the game. Some part of the song even make you more nervous during the game, haha.

If you are Final Fantasy fans, for sure you know that this year is their 30th anniversary. Prior to this Anniversary celebration, I found out that they are having a musical concert in Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on the 18th October which falls on the same day of Deepavali.


Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY JIRITSU / 而立

Let me give you a brief introduction to the concert. 

Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY presents a new series of orchestral concerts: FINAL FANTASY 30th Anniversary - JIRITSU. Including a spectacular musical tribute to 30 years of FINAL FANTASY, music from FINAL FANTASY XV and a visual experience to accompany the show, SQUARE ENIX, AWR Music and Impact Live/Creon Asia bring this once in a lifetime live show to Kuala Lumpur's Plenary Hall on 18th October.

Featuring Japanese video game composer Nobuo Uematsu in attendance and a full symphony orchestra conducted by Grammy award-winner Arnie Roth, this multimedia experience combines stirring HD screen images to match the soaring emotions of SQUARE ENIX's world-renowned FINAL FANTASY video game series.


With the first FINAL FANTASY concert premiering in 2002 in Japan, the concept has toured the world, with this new 30th-anniversary production including music from throughout the 30 years of FINAL FANTASY games as well as new scores and arrangements created specifically for these concerts. Video game music has grown increasingly popular in the last few years, playing an integral role in the immersive experience of today's games.

The FINAL FANTASY soundtracks, which are original compositions, have grown so popular that TIME magazine named series composer Nobuo Uematsu a notable "Innovator" in its recent "Time 100: the Next Wave Music" feature. SQUARE ENIX hopes to pioneer awareness and appreciation of not only its own musical creations but also video game music throughout the industry.

"Eyes On Me" sold 400,000 copies and won "Song of the Year (Western Music)" at the 14th Annual Japan Gold Disc Awards in 1999, the first time in history that music from a video game had attained this illustrious honor. 


In 2001, Nobuo Uematsu was named as one of the "Innovators" in Time Magazine's Time 100: the Next Wave Music feature. In recent years, Classic FM, the world's largest Classical Music radio station, has repeatedly recognized Nobuo Uematsu's music from FINAL FANTASY for inclusion in its illustrious "Hall of Fame".
