What a Korean Pop Song Can Teach Us About Video Game Sequels

Kotaku: Before Final Fantasy X-2 was released in the US, I started listening to the Japanese version of Real Emotion, which is the song that Yuna sings in the intro movie. I'm not astonished to recall that I recoiled like a klobb when I first listened to the American version of Real Emotion. The song's key had been changed, the English singer's voice didn't match the Japanese singer's. And of course, now and then, it seemed a touch... how shall one say? That there were too many notes, perhaps? What I had sensed was the change in the song's identity – its "personality." (Final Fantasy X-2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
