This is Leona Lewis She's Very talented. Sings very well and looks very good as well . As long I can hear the Japanese version As Well I dont mind.

AP3681d ago

No Japanese song in the English release at all. Sorry :(

Also: Do not want this song

UltimateIdiot9113681d ago

That's very disappointing to know. I really hope the Japanese version have english subs. SE keeps disappointing.

Saaking3681d ago

Disappointing. Doesn't fit with FF at all.

Julie3681d ago (Edited 3681d ago )

Why can't we have this one?:

Sugawara Sayuri i wish you could sing in my game too :(

toaster3681d ago (Edited 3681d ago )

Leona Lewis =/= epic theme song.

EDIT: I mean... Leona Lewis has a good voice, but can I just get the game all in Japanese and have English for the subs and text? That would be great.

iamtehpwn3681d ago (Edited 3681d ago )

This isn't Final Fantasy. I mean, there was NO need to localize the theme song. Kimi ga iru kara plays in recently released English trailer...I'm in love with that song.

The English voices aren't that bad from what I heard so far, but this theme song may have just turned me off from the English version. My Japanese isn't the best, but you better believe I'll be importing now.

Just need to remember my god damn...kanji again. >_<

Marceles3681d ago

God...keep messing up FF more and more Square. Should've had Utada make a song or something.

Critical_Hit3681d ago

Now I actually like the English song but I still think Kimi Ga Iru Kara is a better fit for the game and the series. I still remember Suteki da ne from FFX vividly, yet I can't recall the ending theme of FFXII at all. For some reason Japanese music sticks to me more than English ones in FF. I'm just wondering how difficult it is for Square Enix to throw another mp3 file onto the disc.

Greywulf3681d ago

This is Leona Lewis She looks very good.

ThanatosDMC3681d ago (Edited 3681d ago )

What the eF was that?! It doesnt even come close to the Japanese version! They dont need to change the theme music.

Maddens Raiders3681d ago

doesn't even go with the game at all. should've used Sugawara Sayuri - oh well... SE sucks anyway now.

INehalemEXI3681d ago

greatest travesty since SFIV's indestructable theme song.

ThanatosDMC3681d ago (Edited 3681d ago )

At least the Kingdom Hearts theme song got stuck in our heads:

FF12's sucked... heck was there even one?

Reibooi3681d ago

Why the hell is there a English song in the US version?

That makes no sense. The only reason a English song should be there is if they did what they did with Kingdom Hearts and have someone do both the Japanese and English song exactly the same just in different languages. They did it TWICE in Kingdom hearts with the help of Utada Hikaru and Namco Bandai did it in Tales of Vesperia with the help of Bonnie Pink. Both times the song sounds exactly the same but just is sung in a different language.

This is really stupid. It's a waste of money on SE's part because NO ONE buying the game wants a English theme song like this.

iamtehpwn3681d ago

They even did for FFX-2
with 1000 words and 1000の言葉
This is just... ASS, Square.

ultimolu3681d ago (Edited 3681d ago )

...What the hell is this?

This doesn't fit with FFXIII...

And I liked the original piece. That one was gorgeous.

ABizzel13681d ago (Edited 3681d ago )

I agree this doesn't go with Final Fantasy only, because FF is full of mediocre singers with a decent voice, and Leon has power, emotion, and soul to her voice.

In other words she's too good to sing this song.

RememberThe3573681d ago

I got nothing but love for her music, but it doesn't really sound like FF at all.

But you never know; Square is really good at the whole cinematic thing, so they will probably integrate it well. I can't wait for this game.

Nikuma3681d ago

Can we please just got back to classic orchestrated goodness from classic FF games? Please!?

Dragun6193680d ago (Edited 3680d ago )

Wow pretty disappointed here, Expecting something more classical rather than a pop song. Don't get me wrong here, its an alright song but it doesn't feel like it belongs to Final Fantasy 13.

SE should have went with the more Classical song like Final Fantasy Versus XIII theme song which gives the Final Fantasy Vibe. I mean come on, the Classical music is what really draws me in every Final Fantasy.

Final Fantasy Versus XIII - "Somnus" by Yoko Shimomura

or FF Versus XIII Epic trailer song! Which is totally F Awesome

Yay, now even video gaming is being ruined by Simon Cowell. Good work!

Lucreto3681d ago

I never heard of Leona Lewis before. I can't say I like the song all that much.

riksweeney3681d ago (Edited 3681d ago )

>I never heard of Leona Lewis before.

Lucky you.

Basically she's an overrated talent show winner (think American Idol). She had one average song which stayed at Number 1 in the UK for over 8 weeks and everyone got fed up with.

zootang3681d ago (Edited 3681d ago )

Leona Lewis is the only reason why a talent show should exist. Her live vocal ability is on par with Whitney and Mariah

Did i mention the jimmy page is a fan

man0fsteel3681d ago

She was actually Britain's show X-factor. BUT anyways, I don't care what anyone says's, she is an amazing talent, and i'm glad that she is featured in this game :)

Baka-akaB3681d ago

She is definitely a talent , but what matter is what she sings with it ... and so far while it set the charts ablaze , it's nothing that shattering .

Guess i'll do what i planned anyway , and just import instead of hoping square decides to announces subs for the ps3 version

RememberThe3573681d ago

But Leona Lewis can sing her ass off. Whether or not you like her music is an other story.

jack_burt0n3681d ago

wow that sucks at least write a song for the friggin game.

AP3681d ago

FF theme songs have never been great, but I think this is what disappoints me most. I like the song to match the game, not just be a loose licensed one.

Baba19063681d ago

its not that bad. she has a great voice. but yeah kinda doesnt feel like ff.
