Materia Collective, the label behind such albums as MATERIA: Final Fantasy VII Remixed, and Straight From the Underground, has finally released their latest project – ZODIAC: Final Fantasy Tactics Remixed.

ZODIAC, as the name may imply, is dedicated to the 1997 PlayStation classic Final Fantasy Tactics and spans an impressive 63 songs, containing within it over four hours of Tactics-inspired musical arrangements. The album features the combined efforts of over 100 different musical artists – including John Robert Matz, Dale North, Doug Perry, Annie Rosen, Sean Schafianski, Laura Intravia, Jack Menhorn, and Amanda Lepre – and features covers that cross through a variety of genres – from orchestral and rock, all the way to swing jazz and tango.

“The Final Fantasy Tactics soundtrack was darker and more atmospheric than other Final Fantasy soundtracks,” project producer Stephern Robert Froeber said. “in some ways, that makes doing straight covers of the songs tricky, so it has been really amazing to hear the interpretations that arrangers have given each piece. Especially for the pieces where the original had an organic, open ended structure, it has been really cool to hear what arrangers have done.”

ZODIAC: Final Fantasy Tactics Remixed is available now, and can be purchased on iTunes and Spotify.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
